The Tesla Cybertruck is not out yet. And we shouldn’t count that chicken before it hatches anyway. But its massive hype has gotten some eager fans to do whatever they can to get their hands on one, even if it isn’t really a Cybertruck at all. This replica is one of the best we’ve seen, and it’s actually based on a Ford F-150 Raptor. While that powertrain is certainly different than the electric vehicle it looks like, there’s really no trace of Ford left inside or out.
The project was commissioned by the owner of Stark Solutions, a Bosnian fabrication company. It took nearly 8 months to completely strip down the Raptor and create the Cybertruck, and the final product could easily be mistaken for the real thing at first glance.
The overall shape looks almost identical to the Cybertruck, with the signature cheese wedge proportions. The headlights and connecting light bar are the same narrow shape, the wheels have the same design, and the rear light bar is similar. The biggest difference is the proportions, as a Raptor just isn’t the same size and doesn’t have the same proportions as the Cybertruck.
Almost more impressive than the exterior is the interior. There is no Ford switchgear, screens or even overall design. The glass roof, giant touchscreen, steering wheel and marble dash all echo the real deal closely.
Unfortunate, then, that the owner will never get the chance to drive this wild creation on the road legally. While trying to get the vehicle registered, Stark Solutions discovered Bosnian regulations ban vehicles with sharp edges like these. The Cybertruck’s design is all hard edges, whether it’s the real thing or a passable replica like this. The regulation means Stark won’t be building any more of these replicas, and the real Tesla Cybertruck will probably not be allowed to go on sale in Bosnia. If it ends up looking anything like the concept, that is.
