The Petersen Museum is one of the most famous car museums in the world.
It is located in Los Angeles and reopens tomorrow, June 20th.
As a treat, the Tesla Cybertruck will be on display for one week only.
This is, in no uncertain terms, a sign that the Tesla Cybertruck has already made a huge indent in the American car culture. For its reopening following the lockdown due to the pandemic, the Petersen is not pulling out a multi-million dollar rarity from its legendary vault, it’s worked out an arrangement with Tesla to display their Cybertruck for one week.
The Petersen Automotive Museum is not just any small local car museum – It is one of the largest of its kind and the collection held within its funky architecture is one of the most valuable on the planet. The Petersen also has many friends with rare and valuable cars and they could have called on any of them for a loan. But no, for one week only, starting tomorrow June 20th, the Tesla Cybertruck will be the Museum’s star attraction.
Frankly, the Cybertruck has not been spotted in the same spot for more than a few moments, or enough to get a picture, since it was revealed back in November for a private audience. If you live in the greater Los Angeles area or plan on spending some time in the city post-lockdown, you should absolutely head to the Museum and see the Cybertruck and the remainder of the collection.
You’ll need to buy your tickets online before going so don’t be caught left out in the warm SoCal summer sun. Finally, if you’ve not heard of the Cybertruck, it’s a stainless-steel and armored glass, triple-electric motor pickup truck that can hit 60 mph from a standstill in 2.9 seconds, tow 14,000 lbs and offers a range in excess of 500 miles. You can also order it online now on Tesla’s website.
