We know the 1991 Honda Beat isn’t synonymous with the Tesla Cybertruck, but this owner decided to turn the former into a miniature version of Elon Musk’s latest bulletproof vehicle. Why? The Honda Beat is a compact, mid-engine convertible with just the right wheelbase, engine location, and seat height.
To make this happen, the Beat’s body parts had to be removed including the windshield. However, the mechanical aspects, such as the interior, were kept intact. Next, CAD software was required to plan everything out before a local welder could fabricate the body frame from extruded aluminum stock. A powerful waterjet was used to slice the car’s 1/4”-thick aluminum composite body skin that was then adhered to the frame using an epoxy panel bonding adhesive. Other features include flush-mounted laminated auto glass, LED lighting 16” wheels, and a brushed titanium vinyl wrap on the exterior.
- The Hot Wheels R/C Tesla Roadster features awesome remote-controlled driving performance with exceptional design detail.
- The 1:64 scale car works onand off-track and comes with a special adapter to transition between the two. It operates on a 2.4 GHz frequency so that multiple R/C cars can be played with at once without interference. (Additional cars sold separately.)
- For those craving extra speed, there's a turbo booster that unlocks additional power for super high-speed thrills. Reach top speeds of 6.8 mph.
My goal was to design and build a radical wedge-shaped concept car using just four flat planes, a much simpler blueprint than Tesla’s origami Cybertruck. And now I’ve created it and named it RAAZER,” said its owner.
