Elon Musk’s Boring Company flamethrowers are selling like hotcakes

As well as electric cars, solar panels and space station delivery services, Elon Musk began selling flamethrowers last weekend.

As with many of his other ventures, this one is already somewhat of a success. The Boring Company flamethrowers, which are $500 plus tax have already sold upwards of 7,000 units, placing at least $3.5m in the coffers.

Musk is making 20,000 units available in total and, after little more than 48-hours, he’s well on his way to shifting half of them.

He has been tweeting the landmarks as they tick off, and given the 7k figure was released 7 hours ago, we’re expecting another update soon.

There’s still no word on when the flamethrowers will actually ship to customers. It’s not unlike Musk’s firms to take some of customers money with no fixed release date, as Model 3 pre-order customers are currently discovering.

This flamethrower fire sale (sorry) comes after the firm sold out its allotment of 20,000 hats. Both are designed to raised funds for the Hyperloop endeavours. It appears to be working.
