• Here’s What Your Favorite Car Would Look Like If Elon Musk Designed It

Someone cybetrucked five iconic cars

When Tesla debuted the Roadster back in 2008, the electric drop-topped didn’t look radically different than the Lotus it was based on. However, the Model S came later with a unique design that set it apart from the competition. The Model X added a bit more uniqueness through the "falcon" doors, but things became really wild when Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck. An unconventional polygonal design that seems to defy modern aerodynamics and automotive styling cues, the Cybertrack is a perfect example of form follows function. If you’re wondering how some of the world’s most iconic cars would look like if Elon Musk designed them, the folks over at Leasing Options virtually "cybertrucked" five of them.

Mini Cooper Cybertruck

The Mini Cooper is known for its round shapes and flowing lines, so it looks a bit weird as a polygonal car. This car is highly recognizable through its round grille and headlamps, so it looks like a different car altogether. Luckily enough, the original Mini features a somewhat boxy roof, so we can still see some Cooper in there. But that’s also because the rendering retains a traditional Mini livery and a British flag on the front grille.

Volkswagen Beetle Cybertruck

The Beetle is yet another car famous for its rounded shapes. The modern Beetle retained the rounded fenders and hoods, as well as the rounded roof, so a cybertrucked Bug sounds like a weird idea. Surprisingly enough, it’s not that bad. And I bet it’s because it looks similar to the Kubelwagen, a military vehicle built on the Beetle’s chassis during World War II. Unlike the Beetle, the Kubelwagen featured a simpler, boxier design with a heavily slanted front hood and almost rectangular fenders and side panels. Just like this rendering here.

Jaguar F-Type Cybertruck

This one’s a bit atrocious if you ask me. Although the designer kept the F-Type’s headlamps and front grille, there’s nothing else to remind me that this is indeed a Jaguar. The overall shape of this car reminds me of the Moster Inc. animated film, and that’s not a compliment. Now I can say I’m glad that Jaguar is owned by Tata Motors rather than Tesla.

Bugatti Veyron Cybertruck

Now this actually a good reinterpretation of the Bugatti Veyron. I was never a fan of the supercar’s potato-shaped exterior, so this is something I could get into. Sure, it has 1990s written all over it, and the aerodynamics are blown to pieces, but hey, it looks better than the original. And it’s still recognizable as a Veyron.

Range Rover Evoque Cybertruck

The Evoque is already boxy and angular, so this rendering doesn’t change much. I don’t like the fact that it’s too long compared to the real deal, but hey, this must mean more legroom and more trunk space. But still, I’d rather have Land Rover remain under Tata Motors because they’re good at designing boxy SUVs anyway.

    Volkswagen Beetle
