Hot Wheels has unveiled two Cybertruck radio-control cars modeled after Tesla's Cybertruck

Before you can take a Tesla Cybertruck for a test drive, you'll be able to take two Hot Wheels versions for a spin.
Three months after the highly-anticipated reveal of the all-electric futuristic-looking truck, Mattel's Hot Wheels brand announced at the New York Toy Fair Friday that it is introducing two radio-control toy versions.
Both versions are expected to ship in December 2020 and pre-orders are being taken on the Mattel Creations website,
"Hot Wheels packs the power and performance of the futuristic Cybertruck into two small-scale, remote-control vehicles: a track-compatible 1:64 scale and a limited-edition hobby grade 1:10 scale," the website says. "It’s the only way to drive the Cybertruck in 2020!"

However, there's already a waitlist to purchase the larger $400 version, which the website says is sold out. That version will have functioning headlights and taillights.
It comes with a reusable cracked window vinyl sticker, a nod to the on-stage snafu from the Cybertruck's debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show when after Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the vehicle's windows were bulletproof, they cracked when a metal ball was thrown at them.
Tesla also is cashing in on the viral blunder with a bulletproof T-shirt announced in January.
According to Mattel's website, the Hot Wheels team collaborated with Tesla with the toy brand's designers studying the life-size model.
“Both scale R/C vehicles faithfully replicate their life-size inspiration with blazing speeds via Sport Mode and rechargeable batteries," Mattel's website notes. “Now, anybody can get ‘behind the wheel’ of the Truck of the Future.”
The smaller 3-inch Hot Wheels Cybertruck is the same size as classic Hot Wheels and fits on Hot Wheels tracks. The $20 version was still available for pre-orders Friday night.

Tesla Cybertruck: The real version

The Cybertruck's odd design – a triangular-shaped body made of stainless steel – has drawn a wide range of opinions, from "eccentric" to a "piece of junk."
With a battery range of at least 250 miles, a towing capacity of more than 7,500 pounds and a zero-to-60-mph time of fewer than 6.5 seconds, the Cybertruck carries a starting price of $39,900.
Since Tesla began accepting $100 refundable deposits on the vehicle in November, “the demand has been incredible,” Musk said on a conference call Jan. 29. “We’ve never seen anything like it, basically. I think we will make about as many as we can sell for many years.”
In November, Musk reported that more than 200,000 people have placed deposits and said the vehicle would arrive in about two years.
