Pictured: Incredible £36,000 attachment that turns the Tesla Cybertruck into a mini home on wheels

 It’s the ultimate mini home on wheels.

An incredible £36,000 ($50,000) accessory, the ‘CyberLandr’, has been unveiled for the Tesla Cybertruck that turns it into a camper complete with shower, cooker, toilet and seats that transform into a double bed.

There’s even a sink with a voice-controlled tap.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the Cybertruck for the first time in November 2019 and famously managed to shatter two of the vehicle’s ‘bulletproof’ windows during the launch event.

The prototype hit the streets of Manhattan in May of this year, leading hundreds of New Yorkers to line up outside the Tesla showroom to catch a rare glimpse of it.

In July, Musk revealed production is now being delayed to sometime in 2022, over battery shortages. The anticipated recommended retail price is from £29,249 ($40,000) to £51,186 ($70,000).

According to the team behind CyberLandr, the camper attachment will make the truck perfect 'for wilderness and urban adventures'

The all-electric truck’s body is based on a 1976 Lotus Esprit sports car Musk owned in 2013 and the rest of the design pulls inspiration from vehicles in Blade Runner, Mad Max, Back to the Future and Alien.

The team behind CyberLandr say the camper attachment for Musk’s truck will make it perfect ‘for wilderness and urban adventures’.

And it’s high-tech, just like the mother vehicle.

When it’s not in use, the CyberLandr will become completely invisible, folding stealthily inside the Cybertruck’s rear and unfolding at the press of a button on an app.

Inside owners will enjoy a whole range of mod cons, including underfloor heating, Wi-Fi – and much more.

Customers will be able to install the camping attachment in a DIY fashion, but CyberLandr says it would prefer to perform the install at its factory, which conveniently will be 'just down the street' from the Tesla factory in Giga, Texas

The living space will be fitted with surround sound audio, a 32inch television, featuring streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime, and the lighting will also be voice-activated.

Those hoping to get work done will be able to take advantage of the StarLinkTM satellite dish, which will provide high-speed internet.

The freestanding reclining seating will turn into a queen-sized bed that mounts above the countertop, and there will be enough room on the floor underneath for two children or one adult to sleep.

The ‘spa-inspired’ bathroom will feature a dry-flush toilet, a self-cleaning bowl and the shower will have five flow patterns.

The CyberLandr – designed by Las Vegas-based Stream It – will weigh 1,200lbs, extend to 11ft in height with the attachment deployed, have solar panels that create 500 watts of energy, and it will be able to carry 40 gallons of fresh water.

Lance King, the co-creator behind the concept, came up with the idea during the pandemic, eventually bringing it to life with his collaborator, Bill French.

The idea was unveiled in April, and by August, they hit more than £58million ($80million) in pre-orders, Lance told Business Insider.

Prices start at £29,224 ($39,995) for the CyberLandr for customers who put down a £3,653 ($5,000) deposit on the accessory.

Customers will be able to deliver their Cybertrucks in person, or CyberLandr will intercede the shipping and perform the install, before sending it to the customer via Tesla delivery.
