If there’s one thing Adin Ross loves, it’s his Cybertruck.

The American live streamer has an enviable car collection, which includes a Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Lamborghini Huracán Evo, but it’s his latest acquisition that’s got all of his attention.

The Cybertruck is one robust vehicle, but how much of a battering can it withstand? Ross has been trying to find out.

Since taking delivery of his Cybertruck, Adin Ross has already tested it by throwing a dumbbell at it to see what would happen.

Now, in classic content creator fashion, he did the most ridiculous thing you could do to it: shoot it with a gun.

To be fair, this isn’t the first time the EV pickup truck has been subjected to gunfire, with Joe Rogan even firing an arrow at one while Elon Musk smoked a cigar.

Adin Ross is the latest to do it, though, shooting up his Cybertruck with 9mm ammunition.

In the video posted to X, Ross’ excitement can be felt through his heavy breathing, use of profanity, and general expressions during and after the test.

The live streamer fired more than 20 rounds into the side of the truck, but it was his last shot that was a cause for concern.

Gasping, Ross and his friend went to inspect the damage, and noticed one round had struck the vehicle in the door gap, between the driver’s door and rear door.

But instead of denting its stainless steel-clad body like the other shots, it had actually entered the vehicle’s frame.

The trouble is, when you upload such videos to social media, there’s always a strong chance you’re going to face criticism – and that’s exactly what happened.

“You wanna come learn how to shoot?” one user quipped.

“Bro why you standing like that” another joked.

But not all of the comments poked fun at Ross.

“Ok, this makes me want to keep my reservation… honestly range is my biggest concern, this is third,” one user commented.

“WOW that is insane!” another commented.

The clip even caught the attention of Elon Musk, who responded to the post with a simple “Nice”.

It’s clear the Cybertruck has some of the most interesting features and capabilities of any car out there right now, but its ability to withstand damage from firearms could arguably be the most impressive.
