More than being edgy, the Tesla Cybertruck was unconventional. Now I’ve always voiced my disdain for the Cybertruck’s design… but that doesn’t mean I hate it as a concept. I just believe it’s a little too absurd for a car that is designed for sale. That being said, if Elon tweeted the Cybertruck design as a cool designer-made concept, I’d definitely appreciate it for its game-changing design. That being said, the Cybertruck has also sparked its fair share of design concepts created using the low-poly design language as inspiration… and I’ll be honest. Some of them are pretty dope.
Take for instance the Rimac 2080 Hyper Cyber, a concept by 3Dmente Digital. Designed as a part of Rimac’s Design Challenge on Instagram, the Hyper Cyber is an edgy, retro-techno-punkish bike with a low-poly body in the signature metallic finish. The bike sports an unusual seat design that’s molded in a single piece, with negative spaces that give it a cushioning effect, and quite like the Cybertruck, it’s missing rearview mirrors too. That being said, it does come with a traditional-looking fuel tank, although that could just be a power inlet for charging… and there’s a distinct lack of cracked glass surfaces too, a detail whose absence I surely can appreciate!
