Vehicle underwent "Al Capone style" weapons test

The Tesla Cybertruck that famously withstood a barrage of bullets during testing will be one of the highlights of an upcoming exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Museum officials announced on social media that the bullet-ridden Cybertruck will be part of a display of the electric pickup trucks beginning on December 18th.

“New Cybertrucks on display starting December 18. Here’s a sneak peek at the model that underwent a bullet test. The truck uses 1.8mm thick stainless super alloy on its doors which allows it to truly be bulletproof,” the museum wrote.

Withstood shots from variety of firearms

The Cybertruck gained attention last October when a photo emerged showing bullet damage on a test vehicle. At the time it was speculated that Tesla was evaluating the vehicle's durability against firearms. Tesla CEO Elon Musk later confirmed that the automaker had "emptied the entire drum magazine of a Tommy gun into the driver door Al Capone style" and that "no bullets penetrated into the passenger compartment."

Video later emerged showing the actual test, which utilized four different firearms - a Tommy Gun, a Glock pistol, an MP5 submachine gun, and a 12-gauge shotgun. While the body panels showed minor damage from the shotgun pellets, the interior remained unpenetrated. The feat highlighted the Cybertruck's ultra-strong stainless steel body panels, which use an alloy that is over 10 times harder than standard automotive steel.

Historic test vehicle joins museum collection

By adding the famous bullet-tested vehicle to its collection, the Petersen Museum is ensuring that this historic test will be remembered as a pivotal moment in Tesla's story. The Cybertruck display will allow visitors to see firsthand how the electric truck held up against a level of damage that would easily penetrate most vehicles. It serves as a dramatic visual testament to the engineering behind Tesla's radically-designed pickup.
