Musk demonstrated the rugged capabilities of Tesla Cybertruck
During the launch, held in LA, Musk boasted about the wide-ranging capabilities of the Cybertruck, starting from its ability to outpace a Porsche 911 to besting Ford F-150 in a tug of war and bearing the impact of a 9mm handgun.
He also demonstrated the vehicle's strength by getting its doors, made from the same ultra-hard alloy of Starship, battered with a real sledgehammer.
However, its armored-glass windows failed to impress
When the sledgehammer beating had minimal impact on the Cybertruck, Musk called Tesla's chief designer Franz von Holzhausen to showcase the strength of the vehicle's 'shatterproof' armored-glass windows.
Holzhausen then launched a small metal ball at the window, which, much to Musk and everyone's surprise, immediately broke the glass.
"Oh my f****** god," the billionaire exclaimed after the test failed.
After smashing the glass, Holzhausen took another attempt, but the result was the same this time too. The windows failed to have the desired effect, prompting Musk to say, "It didn't go through, so that's a plus ...[there is] room for improvement."
"We threw wrenches, we threw everything, we even literally threw a kitchen sink at the glass, and it didn't break. For a little weird reason it broke now, I don't know why," Musk said on the stage. He also shared a video proving the same.
