UPDATE: We've added a new photo of the F-150-wrapped Tesla Cybertruck courtesy of @greggertruck that offers the best look yet at the wrapped vehicle's front end. 

Tesla continues to test the Cybertruck extensively before the handover event that's expected to take place at the end of this quarter (in late September).

We've seen various pre-production prototypes of its Cybertruck on public roads, including some wearing camouflage-like full-body wraps.

But the most intriguing of the Cybertruck prototypes spotted thus far has been by far the F-150 Lighting-themed Tesla Cybertruck, which was first spotted last month. 

Well, it looks like Tesla isn't done trolling Ford – and people who happen to see this thing on the road – because the Cybertruck that impersonates an F-150 Lightning has been spotted again.


Last month, we saw the confusing-looking truck driving in Palo Alto, California, and then on a car hauler heading to an unknown destination. 

Now, the F-150-wrapped Cybertruck has made another appearance in Palo Alto, where Tesla has its engineering headquarters. One of the photos provides a rare look at the front of the vehicle, although the image quality leaves much to be desired. 

The other photo is much-better quality and reveals the ridiculous wrap in all its glory. The photos were uploaded on the social media network X (formerly Twitter) by Jesus Molina (@JesusMolinaZep1) and shared by Sawyer Merritt, who also shared a video of the peculiar-looking prototype. 

The Cybertruck was caught driving on Interstate 280 by user Tito Padilla (@ZZTap18), but for some reason the video cuts just as it was about to show the front end of the electric truck.


As a reminder, the Tesla Cybertruck wrapped to look like an F-150 appeared shortly after Ford CEO Jim Farley criticized the Cybertruck for not being a real work truck.

"It's [the Cybertruck] like a cool high-end product parked in front of a hotel. But I don't make trucks like that. I make trucks for real people who do real work, and that's a different kind of truck," Farley said in an interview with CNBC.

Ford's boss was obviously referring to the Cybertruck's unibody construction as opposed to the F-150's body-on-frame setup.

The Tesla Cybertruck continues to attract a lot of attention, with recent sightings including nine covered trucks on the Giga Texas lot, a Cybertruck being hauled by a Tesla Semi, and several trucks inside the Austin plant apparently undergoing trial production.
