Internet reacts to footage of Cybertruck doing a ‘gangster’ U-Turn 

Footage has just leaked of the Tesla Cybertruck doing a seriously impressive U-turn. 

A U-turn might not sound so exciting, but wait until you see it. 

The footage has even been described as “gangster”, so that’s what we’re working with.

Posted to Twitter by Tesla Raj, the video shows the Cybertruck using its all-wheel drive to almost turn on the spot as it does the U-turn. 

“Never seen a vehicle of this size do this so nimbly!” Raj said. 

Shortly after it was posted, the footage shot by Joe Tegtmeyer, started going viral.

“Incredible how easy and smooth that seems,” one guy said. 

“Four-wheel steering in action! This will also make parking in the garage easier!” another said. 

“There’s nothing like the Cybertruck.” 

And of course, then came the memes.

But as with everything that hits the internet, the video has also ignited some fiery debate. 

“Why would you speed up the video? Falsifying footage to make it seem more nimble is not the way to go, I’m sure it looks impressive enough at normal speed,” one guy said. 

And he’s got a keen eye because it appears the footage was actually edited. 

The videographer, Joe Tegtmeyer, admitted to speeding it up by 2X when he made the video. 

Obviously, people weren’t happy with that, asking “why taint the video at all?”.

But others jumped to his defense, saying the footage was still wildly impressive. 

“Even if you slow it down, look at that turn radius!” one said. 

“I played it back at .25 speed and it’s still impressive,” another said. 

Elon Musk promised the Cybertruck would be here before the end of the year. 

And while there’s a lot of leaked footage showing the truck doing quality testing, there’s still no official release date.
