Someone Turned A Tesla Model X Into A Tank With Gatling Guns
Tesla’s Model X is a good-looking car and it’s a great way to move the family around, too. But it turns out that it can also be used as a mobile turret of sorts. Or a tank. Or as the folks at Electrek put it — as a war machine.
We know this because a YouTuber took a Model X and fitted it out with two machine guns that come out of those lovely falcon wing doors. The whole thing was created by YouTube channel FullMag and was designed for Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company that is founded by US military vets.
So stoked to finally introduce the Model XR556! The Prius was fun, but I wanted to take an electric vehicle and mount an electronic deployed and fired system with dual 556 miniguns. Seems easy, right? This took my a little over a year and ran into a lot of issues along the way. Needless to say, we are so proud of this project and the epic slowmo videos to come
The whole thing is, of course, insane, and there’s little chance of you seeing this thing rolling down the street any time soon. Which is good, really, because as much as we like the idea of a Marzocco GS3 espresso machine living in the trunk, those guns are making us nervous.
