We’ve seen quite a few Tesla Cybertruck replicas since its visual release to the public, but this build may be a cut above the rest. Built from a Ford Raptor and a lot of talent, a Bosnian fabrication house owner wasn’t waiting for the Cybertruck to come to him. Instead, he took it into his own hands and built the thing himself.
It took him and a group of IT specialists and engineers at Igor Krezic’s Stark Solutions eight months to build it from the ground up, but one thing does remain: an internal combustion engine.
Beneath the metal body still sits the F-150 Raptor.
“Everybody was watching and half of them thought we made a tank, because people don’t know what the Cybertruck is. One girl even stopped and asked if this is the place where they are producing Tesla Cybertruck,” said company manager Mario Coric to REUTERS.
“The owner wanted us to combine two opposite sides – Ford and Cyber – because he is a fan of both Tesla and Ford, so we merged two souls into one,” said Coric. This one uses gasoline and Tesla uses electricity. We tried to copy as much as possible but our car is not the same size as the Cybertruck.”
If building it wasn’t hard enough, the team is now battling with Bosnian officials who are thinking twice about making it street legal thanks to the angular design. This makes you wonder just how legal the real Tesla Cybertruck will be when it is finally released…
