Tesla's Elon Musk runs over pylon while driving new Cybertruck

According to the Business Insider, the traffic pylon was not an official road sign and appeared to have been placed by the restaurant's management.

A number of passersby can be seen snapping photographs of the closely-guarded vehicle.

I said unconventional test drive because we're not sure the prototype is road legal, and there's hardly any real testing happening during a night out. "Guess what he was driving?" the Reddit user wrote in a post that has attracted close to 2,000 comments.

Until now, only one major sighting of the vehicle had been witnessed in the wild.

The Tesla honcho rolled into Nobu Saturday evening with the Cybertruck and a few buddies ... and his experience was immediately the largest celeb within the all the time celeb-packed joint.

The ATV's appearance at the Cybertruck launch seemed like a playful afterthought on the night, as it drove up the ramp to fit neatly in the back tray. The automaker plans to offer three models starting at $39,900. Production is estimated for 2021 or 2022. The musician Grimes, who according to media reports has been dating Musk, appears to be one of the vehicle's passengers.

Musk's Cybertruck was also spotted on the Golden State's 405 freeway later that day at about 11 p.m.by YouTuber Roberto Cruz, who managed to share footage he recorded of the sighting. "It's better because of you!" We will aim to have the ATV released at the same time as the truck, says Musk.

"Two seater electric ATV created to work with Cybertruck will be fun! Electric dirt bikes would be cool too", Musk said via Twitter.

Not road bikes though, it seems: "We won't do road bikes, as too risky. I was hit by a truck & nearly died on one when I was 17".
