[UPDATE: January 29, 2018 5:15 p.m. ET] Just after this story was published, Elon Musk updated the sales figure from 7,000 to 10,000 units of the Boring Company Flamethrower sold, and now total $5 million USD in sales.
Read our original story below.
Just days ago Elon Musk made his Boring Company Flamethrower available for pre-order. Within the first three hours, Musk reported that 1,000 units had been sold, then going on to sell another 2,000 during the day of January 28.
As of this morning, 7,000 Flamethrowers had been ordered, leaving it fairly safe to assume that Musk and The Boring Company have now surpassed the $4 million USD mark in sales, notes The Verge.
The Boring Company Flamethrower is retailing for $500 USD (plus tax), as it is being pegged as the “world’s safest flamethrower, guaranteed to liven up any party.” Oh, and you can also snag the $30 USD Boring Company Fire Extinguisher — you know — for safety purposes and what not.
Musk has previously stated that he will be selling a total of 20,000 Flamethrowers. See the link below to pre-order yours today, and follow to The Verge for more on the $4 million USD milestone.
Now watch as Musk himself shows the Flamethrower in action.
