Rare Tesla Model 3 Longhorn Edition Makes Debut

JAN 22 2019 BY DOMENICK YONEY 38

Hook ’em horns?

There was a time in America (ok, mostly in Texas) when owners of large Cadillacs might adorn the immense hoods of their cars with a set of horns. No, not train horns. Cow horns. And not any old cow, either. Only the impressive rack of a particular type would do: the Texas longhorn. That’s a breed of bovine said to have descended from the livestock brought to the “new world” by the likes of Christopher Columbus and Spanish colonists. But we digress.

Anyhow, there is a long tradition of sticking horns on cars. (Don’t believe us? Check Google.) We don’t know how the now almost-forgotten trend started, but at least one person is bringing it back. Behold, the Tesla Model 3 belonging to one Danny Duncan. It is now resplendently adorned with an imposing set of cow antlers. And, as you can see in the video below, putting them in place was no easy matter.

I put horns on my Tesla 😂

While we’re not sure why people chose this sort of hood ornamentation in the past, in this case we suspect it may be due to Texas Longhorns fandom (the college teams, not the cow). Duncan, who currently has over 2 million YouTube subscribers, has in other videos used the “hook ’em horns” University of Texas at Austin slogan.

While we’re don’t expect the debut of this Model 3 Longhorn edition to reignite any trends, we can’t help but have a laugh at its ridiculousness, as well as at some of the reactions the YouTuber gets driving his now very unique vehicle around. We imagine Duncan may upload a longer video featuring the whole story of procuring and integrating this exceptional ornamentation on his channel. Enjoy!

I’ll be one of the first to ask, “what’s the range?”

How many cow powers?

Definitely needs more cowbell…

… and efficiency in mi/kWh?

Not in kWh, but in impaled per 100 miles

Hope the owner can keep it from unnecessary charging.

You win, sir!

Hehehehe. Home, home on the range.

Is it easy to “steer”?

Gives new meaning to EV “charging”.

Ohm, ohm, on the range.

So Boss Hogg lives on.

Just wait til the Tesla pickup hits Texas.

Body shops can’t wait, many of the first Tesla pickups will get keyed in oil country…

Which is stupid (but totally lost on the MAGA-hat-wearing dimwits) as a Tesla pickup would be FULLY American-made AND American-powered (as opposed to their gas or diesel pickups, very likely powered in-part with foreign oil, that does not help to make American great).

“as a Tesla pickup would be FULLY American-made AND American-powered…”

You understand Tesla is using Panasonic batteries and Panasonic is a Japanese concern.

But Panasonic will make the batteries in Nevada with American workers. You understand that the frame for a Ford F -150 and F-250 is made by Metalsa S.A., a Mexican concern. Tesla is more vertically integrated ergo Ford has more foreign partners.

Hat haters are willing to put any child wearing the hat to be put into the wood chipper. More likely is hate filled anti-MAGA crowd put the whole car, horns first, into the woodchipper, thinking that all horns are racist, sexist, homophobe, Nazi.

“#MAGAkids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper”

All my X’s live in Texas ,sings George Strait, I’m sure he didn’t mean Teslas

If they ever do a sequel to “Blazing Saddles”, this car will have to put in an appearance.

I can just hear Slim Pickens saying “What kind of deviated prevert* would put a set of good ol’ Texas longhorns on a gol-durn ELECTRIC CAR?!?”

*Well okay, my version of Slim Pickens is channeling Col. Guano from “Dr. Strangelove”. 😉

Colonel “Bat” Guano.

Ron Swanson's Mustache

There’s no way you could make Blazing Saddles today.

I guess they were fans of The Duke’s of Hazzard?

When a Tesla needs more cowbell……

I’ll have mine with a Canadian Moose Antlers .LOL

Now Texas will allow sales.

Kill it with fire.

Then serve it with a side of baked potato.

Can I order one of these Rare Tesla Longhorn Editions “Well Done”, and in a preferably sustainable free range organic Vegan Soy Boy PETA option?

I am hoping no real harm came to any hoofs or horns.😎

Real cow horns on the outside; fake cow skin on the inside. Go figure. FWIW, several of the comments below are hilarious! I enjoyed several hearty laughs.

I dub this vehicle, “BEV0”

Coming soon: Model 3 “SpaceX Edition” with 1950s-style rocket tailfins.

Joking mode: It’s becoming more and more difficult to stop Tesla cars these days…:)
Serious mode: Wouldn’t be authorized in Europe because of pedestrian security (couldn’t be approved by authorities to circulated in public roads).

Dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.

Well, that’s probably the most idiotic thing I’ve seen this year, so far.

That’ll be good for the drag coefficient 😄

Pendant: Antlers are shed annually. Horns are not. These are horns, not antlers.

Here’s a Tesla owner who took “more cowbell” very seriously.

Cough cough Danny duncan
