three months after the debut of tesla‘s electric pickup cybertruck, mattel has announced two hot wheels-branded remote-controlled versions. the model cars, which are available to preorder now, are the result of a collaboration between the toymaker and the electric car manufacturer.

the cybertruck comes in in two sizes that include a 1:64 scale and 1:10 scale model. the 1:10 model has a pistol-style remote control and is extremely detailed with a reusable shattered-glass sticker that recalls the failed demonstration at tesla’s launch event. there are also functioning headlights and taillights, a tonneau cover, and a telescopic tailgate that fold out as a loading ramp.

the car has all-wheel and chill or sport driving modes that can get up to 25-plus mph. the plastic body can be removed to see the interior and the drivetrain, which includes a 9.9-v, 3300-mah rechargeable battery. those interested in the vehicles inner-workings will be pleased to know the plastic body can be removed to see the interior, the battery, and the drivetrain.

the smaller three-inch RC car has a two-wheel drive with chill and sport driving modes like the 1:10 scale model. it can reach up to 500 mph scale speed (250 mph for the 1:10), but no zero-to-60 mph times were released.
