If you are a skilled metalworker and your son is crazy about cars and the Tesla Cybertruck, what do you do? Frank Sachsenhausen, from GTA Sheet Metal, built his boy an electric pickup truck for Christmas and allowed the kid to perform a tug-of-war against a Mercedes-Benz R-Class, which he wins. That is all true, and we have videos and pictures to prove that, as you can see above and below.

There are more images published there on 16th and 19th of December, but the moment the little Jesse James saw his Cybertruck must have been epic. Also check out JJ, as Sachsenhausen calls him, do the bootleg turn in the video below.
Talented kid, right? And he has a powerful machine in his hands, as the tug-of-war video shows. Sachsenhausen even seems concerned with JJ when the R-Class starts to move too quickly.
We have no idea how many kW and Nm the little EV pickup truck has, but Sachsenhausen says it is made of indestructible aluminium on a 1:4 scale.
The mini-Cybertruck has only two doors, but the only access is through the roof. It has head and tail lights that work and that are very faithful to the ones we see on the real thing.
As expected, people are now asking Sachsenhausen if he is going to produce and sell more of these Cybertrucks, but so far, he has said it is a one-off and only to Jesse James.
