Despite its faceted, origami-inspired design, a recent simulation shows that the Tesla Cybertruck is more aerodynamic than once thought. Computer fluid dynamics engineer Aleix Lázaro Prat for Numeric System created a digital model of the Cybertruck to test its wind resistance and discovered that the sharp edge of the roof does not produce a big detachment.
Air appears to follow the roof’s downward slope quite seamlessly, giving it a big aerodynamic advantage compared to other pick-up trucks. For comparison purposes, the Cybertruck has a drag coefficient of approximately 0.39, which is very efficient considering that traditional pickup trucks fall between 0.55 and 0.65. If we do get our hands on a Tesla Cybertruck, LOKI’s Basecamp Falcon Camper would be the first accessory installed on it.
- The sleek Hot Wheels 1:10 R/C Cybertruck combines the fearless innovation of Tesla with the timeless legacy of Hot Wheels for unparalleled R/C adventure.
- The included, free-rolling Cyberquad can be added or removed from open truck bed that's part of this Cybertruck's unique form factor.
- The custom remote controller is exclusive to this model, and its design is modeled on the Cybertruck's steering wheel.
- The working headlights and taillights only enhance the incredible stylings of this R/C vehicle.
- Collectors will love the insane detail and epic design features of the Cybertruck, while R/C enthusiasts will marvel at its speed, reaching up to 12 mph.
By adjusting couple surface features, in particular the surrounding edgy geometry of the wheel arches, the drag could be lowered even further,” said Aleix Lázaro Prat in a LinkedIn post.
