American toy company Radio Flyer has been selling miniature Tesla Model S sedans for years now. In case you haven’t seen them yet, these are actual drivable replicas of the popular EV with some basic functions of a car such as a horn and headlamps.
Granted, of course, these are just toys, so there’s only a limited number of ways you can modify them if you wanted to. Some guys, however, found a way to take these tiny Teslas up a notch in a manner that we’re sure we’ve never seen before.
No, there were no aftermarket wheels fitted here, nor were there any changes to the body paint. The car didn’t get new decals, extra stickers, or even a possible boost to its motor. The upgrade it got was a pretty peculiar one: A custom gaming PC setup built right inside the toy car’s front boot.
It was built by computer manufacturing company Origin PC, and they call it the Ludicrous PC. It’s a reference to the available drive mode on the top-spec Model S which lets the car reach 0-100kph in about three seconds or less. A fitting name if you ask us, because this thing packs a punch.
The Ludicrous PC has a 12-core AMD Ryzen 9 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce TX 2080 Ti graphics card, and 32 gigs of RAM. It also has a 2TB Corsair SSD for its operating system and a 4TB Samsung SSD for storage. And if that wasn’t enough, the setup also features an insane liquid cooling system.
It also has some RGB strips underneath, because it wouldn’t look like a full-fledged gaming PC without those. The best part here is that Origin didn’t touch any of Radio Flyer’s components, so the Tesla still drives as it normally would. If you want a portable desktop, this is the way to go.
This thing was recently featured by YouTuber Marques “MKBHD” Brownlee, and he calls it the “world’s fastest gaming PC.” Emphasis on the word fastest, because this setup can really beat every single PC build any day on the track. We can’t argue otherwise, because whose rig is actually drivable, anyway?
Kidding aside, it’s a pretty cool piece that showcases some powerful technology. There wasn’t any official price tag on it, but we reckon it’s going to cost a lot. The stock Radio Flyer Tesla Model S in itself already costs $600, so we won’t even try computing how much a setup like this would cost overall. In any case, if you want to see more of it, check out MKBHD’s video below.
So, what say you? Would you want to set up your gaming rig like this? Just imagine this thing sitting beside your full sim-racing setup. Wouldn’t that look pretty cool?
