After hitting the $5 million mark in sales for the Boring Company Flamethrower earlier this week, Elon Musk has now sold out of all 20,000 units. They were priced at $500 each, meaning the SpaceX and Tesla CEO has made some $10 million in sales.
What makes the sales figures even more remarkable is the fact that, not only is the product due to ship until spring, but the website advertised the flamethrowers as overpriced saying, “you can definitely buy one for less elsewhere.”
According to Musk, each order will come with a complimentary fire extinguisher and was originally put on sale to fund Musk’s traffic-alleviating tunnel.
If you missed out, keep an eye out for any future exploits, as Musk also tweeted saying a snow-thrower could be fun.
