So appropriate! Badass stainless steel rocket to Mars (first of its kind) being towed by badass stainless steel truck (also first of its kind). Best in class, one of a kind pairing. I am obsessed, yes. One of each, please.

Sort of a nitpick, but it's not actually towing, it looks like it finished towing since it is stopped and someone's getting out of the back.

However, this is great news for the ability to tow.
Able to tow the biggest rocket on a single charge! (Cue Superman music)

The vacuum Raptor would weigh a bit more than a sea-level Raptor, so... Not sure what the total difference would be, though. Wikipedia says 3500 for the V2 Raptor rocket engines.

And don't forget those big trailers weigh quite a bit, too.

Yep, at least 1800-2k for the trailer, the GSE mount for the Raptor, another 2k or more, I mean still within the limits of even the single motor. So, not so much impressive from a capability standpoint so much as just cool as hell. I imagine this, like the Iceland footage will be part of the sizzle reel for the delivery event. "Tough enough for the rocket that uses these motors, tough enough for your needs."

It must be AI/CGI/EIEI-O!

Everyone knows the CT isn’t made for doing “real truck stuff”. And in the mile or so he probably towed it, the video didn’t show the 3 times he had to stop at a supercharger! It’s all fake I tell you!

Okay, I was REALLY hoping the lightbar was the actual headlights, but it would appear that the "fog" lights are the headlights from this video...
