Elon Musk only launched his The Boring Company flamethrowers a few days ago but it seems that the unusual product has already sold out. Costing $500 USD each, the products will be shipping in spring. Earlier, Musk tweeted that each flamethrower will come with a complimentary fire extinguisher.

The items made Musk around $10 million USD profit in total, with the Tesla CEO earlier conceding on The Boring Company’s site that they were slightly overpriced, saying “You can definitely buy one for less elsewhere, but this one comes with a cool sticker.”
