Jay Leno rode with Elon Musk in a Cybertruck. Jay Leno has collected over 250 cars worth over $52 million.
Designer Jan Peisert helped Youtube channel Electric Future imagine a military version of Cybertruck.
CEO Mark Burton of Armormax armorizes SUV and trucks. He believes that Cybertruck could be upgraded to withstand grenades and high powered rifles.
Up armoring against high-powered rifles and grenades usually weighs about 1300 pounds.
The premium tri-motor Cybertruck will have an estimated output of 800 horsepower and 1000 pound-feet of torque, plenty of power to propel the hefty metal box to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds, and tow up to 14,000 pounds. The premium Cybertruck will have battery capacity of 200 kwh.
Armormax would add ballistic steel, ballistic glass and reinforcement of the various pillar posts.
