The third version of the truck, which previously no one knew, was captured in photos by Reddit user. The truck, painted in red color, moved across the 405 in Los Angeles. The body design is not much different from the matte design of the model — upstairs as there is no fairing. Are there differences between them in terms of technical equipment is not known.
