The nearly 7,000 lb Tesla Cyberbeast is put through its paces on a 1/8 mile drag strip – and it accelerated from  0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in just 2.68 seconds.

The range-topping Cyberbeast has a battery range of over 440 miles.

The all-wheel drive EV also has a top speed of 209 km/h (130 mph).

But it’s the acceleration that YouTuber, DblCapCrimpin, is interested in.

Per the Tesla website, the top-of-the-range Cyberbeast can tackle 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in just 2.68 seconds.

His first lap started at 79 percent and was completed in 6.88 seconds.

Second attempt “through the water box” came out at a disappointing 7.64, which he put down to a “bad reaction”.

Pass three went better at 6.86 then, showing that the Cyberbeast is “remarkably consistent”, the fourth came in at 6.89.

Pass six clocked in at 6.95.

The speed enthusiast’s conclusion?

“Overall, not bad,” he said.

He managed 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in 2.7 seconds – not far off Tesla’s claim.

Before its launch, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, revealed the Cybertruck ‘Beast Mode’.

The Cybertruck weighs either 6,000 or 7,000 pounds depending on the configuration.

“It’s a heavy truck,” Musk said.

He said that, despite its weight, it’s still set to be a speedy and powerful car.

Musk revealed that the fastest version of the Cybertruck will have something called ‘Beast Mode’.

“We’re aiming to get the 0-60 below three seconds for the Beast Mode version,” he said.

Musk made the revelation in November last year as a guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

The men sat smoking cigars and discussing Musk’s business ventures.

Next, the pair discussed how bulletproof the truck would be.

Luckily, Rogan had an 80-pound cross-bow to hand.

The two immediately took to his garage and he shot the truck at close range.

The arrow sparked and left a barely noticeable dent in the side of the car.

The head also broke off completely – now that’s tough.
