Now that the Tesla Cybertruck is officially out in the wild, the Internet has been blowing up with news articles and videos for the past week. Although almost every single sighting of the Cybertruck is either in a showroom or under a roof somewhere. We have yet to see a proper 1/4-mile drag race with the beast. That is, until now. So, ladies and gentlemen, without any further ado, let's see this bad boy in action.

"It can tow a Porsche 911 across a quarter mile faster than a Porsche 911 can go by itself," said Elon Musk during a special Cybertruck ceremony a few days ago. But judging by the cheers and applause from the audience, maybe it's more fitting to call it a Cybertruck launch ritual.

As of now, the Cybertruck comes in three versions. The first is a $61,000 RWD version that can hit 60 in 6.5 seconds. Then, we have an $80,000 AWD with 600 horsepower and 7,435 lb-ft (10,080 Nm) of torque at the wheels. Be careful not to confuse the wheel torque values with the actual figures from the motor. The AWD version can go from 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 112 mph or 180 kph.
