MAD MUSK! TESLA claimed pickup truck ‘bulletproof’ — then smashed windows with metal ball… ‘Oh my f*cking god’… Chaotic launch

Controversial tech company Tesla has unveiled its new ‘Cybertruck’ – but the launch didn’t quite go to plan.

Founder Elon Musk was left somewhat embarrassed after the “unbreakable” windows were smashed during a presentation. “Room for improvement,” he laughed. Awkward.

  • Elon Musk got Tesla’s design lead to throw a metal ball at one of the pickup truck’s armored windows.
  • “Oh my f—— God,” Musk exclaimed as the ball smashed the glass.
  • The price of Tesla’s Cybertruck starts at $39,900.

Tesla unveiled its futuristic pickup truck at a promotional event in Los Angeles, but when it came to showing off the vehicle’s durability, things didn’t quite go as planned.

CEO Elon Musk claimed the car was “bulletproof” against a 9mm handgun. But when he got Tesla’s chief designer to throw a metal ball at one of its armored windows, audible surprise could be heard as the glass smashed — twice.

“Oh my f—— God,” Musk exclaimed when it first happened. “Well, maybe that was a little too hard.”

Design lead Franz Von Holzhausen gave it another shot, this time with another window. Again, the ball cracked the glass pretty badly.

“It didn’t go through,” said a clearly uncomfortable Musk, who was forced to push on through the remainder of the chaotic launch with the two smashed windows in full view.
