The independently designed tractor inspired by the Mac Pro is envisioned with an electric powertrain and autonomous capabilities

Forget the buzz about the Apple car; brace yourselves for the Apple Tractor Pro! But seriously, while the idea of Apple venturing into farming might make you think they’re seeding new horizons, it’s actually the delightful creation of independent designer Sergiy Dvornytskyy. This tech-savvy study is cropping up with a sense of humor that’s hard to ignore.
The tractor embodies the minimalist style commonly associated with Apple products, drawing particular inspiration from the controversially designed Mac Pro with its distinctive ‘cheese grater’ aesthetics and, to a lesser extent, the iPhone. Its exterior showcases clean lines with rounded edges, slender LED lighting units, and prominently displays the iconic Apple emblem on the front.
The cabin is enclosed with black-tinted glass, creating a striking contrast against the matte silver bodywork, which, as claimed by the creator, is crafted from ‘lightweight, durable materials.’

In addition to resembling a Mac Pro on tractor wheels, this vehicle was also conceptualized to integrate ‘Apple technology,’ allowing it to be monitored and controlled from your device. Furthermore, it was designed with a fully electric powertrain for zero emissions on the field, and autonomous capabilities aimed at making the farmer’s life easier.
The humorous spoof ad, which was shared on the designer’s CARS_DRMR YouTube channel, was inspired by Apple presentations, complete with bold statements about the product, such as: “Every detail of the Apple Tractor Pro has been meticulously designed to enhance the farming experience.” It’s worth noting that while the ‘Pro’ suffix is typically reserved for higher-end devices, in this case, it signifies that this vehicle is tailored for professional farmers.
While this project has about as much chance of happening as a tractor in a tech store, Apple fans with a green thumb might just be willing to camp out overnight for a chance to order one. As for the predicted cost of this extraordinary gadget, the designer playfully slapped on a fictional price tag of $99,999.
Note: These independent renderings are about as ‘Apple’ as a Pineapple and are in no way affiliated with the real fruit—err, we mean tech giant, Apple.
