A creative Kiwi is selling a DIY version of Tesla's famous 'cybertruck' on Trade Me.
The 'cybertruck' is actually a 2000 Toyota Vitz covered in metal sheets.
The 'cybertruck' has done 165,319km and somehow has a warrant of fitness [WOF] until October 2021. However, the owner admitted that was before the modifications and it would not pass a WOF now.
The seller says the vehicle runs fine but was "rolled a few years back so I made it look better, that's debatable". It's described as 4wd with "mean" mud tyres. But unlike the real thing, the DIY 'cybertruck' is not an electric vehicle instead running on petrol.
According to Trade Me, the car has passed a stolen vehicle check, a damaged import check and a re-registered check.
Its starting price is $500 with a buy now of $800.
Trade Me users were delighted by the unique vehicle with one person joking about buying it for their elderly nana.
"Would this be a suitable vehicle for my nana, she's 84?" they joked.
Another said the listing was "crack-up".
"Look mum I made a cybertruck. I love it. Good luck with the sale, and sorry to waste your time," another commented.
Tesla's cybertruck made headlines last year because of an embarrassing blunder during its launch.
At a launch event, Tesla chief executive Elon Musk said the vehicle "won't scratch and dent" and described it as having windows made from armoured glass.
But the glass cracked like a spider web when hit with a metal ball during a demonstration. Musk appeared surprised but noted the glass had not completely broken.
The cyberturck's starting price is US$39,900 (NZ$62,300) and production is expected to begin in late 2021.
Other versions will be priced at $US49,900 (NZ$77,900) and $US69,900 (NZ$109,130), with the most expensive offering a range of more than 800km.
