Hours before Elon Musk's "Saturday Night Live" hosting debut, a Tesla Cybertruck was spotted driving the streets of New York in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan.

The appearance precedes the Tesla CEO's stint on the show on May 8.

An image taken by Steven Brennan was posted on Twitter to showcase the event, to which Musk replied: "Great pic."

The EV prototype has only been spotted on a few rare occasions. In 2019, Musk was seen driving the truck to a restaurant in Los Angeles, per Electrek.

Then last month, the Cybertruck was seen at Tesla's Gigafactory construction site in Texas, as reported by Electrek.

Ahead of the show, Teslarati reported that Musk appeared to coordinated an appearance for the Cybertruck to not only drive the streets of New York.

According to Tesla the Cybertruck is "the most powerful tool [they] have ever built." It is a six-seater vehicle, made from "ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel" and "armor glass" and is able to hit 60mph in about 2.9 seconds on its tri-motor configuration. The starting price of the vehicle starts at $39,900 and goes up to $69,900, as Insider previously reported.
