Eager to preserve the Cybertruck’s raw stainless steel armor from dents or corrosion while adding personalization, Tesla now markets official matte color paint film wrap kits starting at $6,500. Part of a broader range of 25+ accessories revealed this week, the durable wraps apply at select California installations to guard that apocalypse-ready exterior in your choice of matte white or matte black sheathing.

But for immediate curb appeal upon unveiling your groundbreaking new rig, it’s tough to ignore the dramatic impact of those full-body Cybertruck wraps. Expect enhanced resistance against debris damage, UV rays and the occasional wayward shopping cart lest any see your baby bruised.
Of course, that sturdy stainless steel shell theoretically already handles dents and corrosion better than paint. Yet for some extra insurance backing Tesla’s bold durability claims, these wraps bridge the gap starting at just 10% of the full vehicle price.
