    A copy of Tesla's Cybertruck copy was first spotted in Moscow last week, as the vehicle blended with traffic on one of the highways in the Russian capital.

    A Russian-made copy of the yet-to-be-produced Tesla Cybertruck has been offered for sale via the Avito.ru portal, Russia's 360 broadcaster reported on Twitter.

    According to the ad, the ​cost of the whimsical vehicle stands at an ominous 666,666 roubles ($10,810).

    The creator of the car confessed earlier in December that the production of the copy cost him some 80,000 roubles ($1,297).

    A Russian second-hand VAS-2019 served as the basis for the oddly-shaped copy of Elon Musk's creation, the creator said.

    Musk presented his futuristic Cybertruck on November in Los Angeles. During the presentation, the vehicle famously failed a window strength test, when a supposedly armoured window cracked after Tesla’s chief design engineer threw a metal ball at it.
