A $58,000 Tesla gets melted down to make a bust of Elon Musk ... but too bad!
A Russian luxury accessory brand melted Tesla car parts into a bust of Elon Musk but something wrong here.
A luxury accessory company located in Russia is selling eight-inch-tall busts of Tesla CEO Elon Musk that it claims are crafted from melted-down parts of a Tesla electric car.
The statues, on the other hand, show no similarity to the world's richest man.
Caviar is a brand known for producing luxury smartphones. The company said in a press release that it created 27 Musk busts as part of a limited-edition set. According to Caviar, each one is worth $2,700, yet the bust is listed at $3,220 on its website.
The bust is made of the metal from a blue Tesla Model 3, which starts at around $58,000 in Russia.
"These new items embody the soul of Elon Musk and, therefore, they will bring their owners the success and creativity of this outstanding individual," wrote company founder Sergey Kitov in the release.
According to Stoliarov, the sculpture's similarity to Musk was created by a 3D artist hired by Caviar. "We didn't download it from the internet," he said.
When asked about the differences in the bust design and Musk's look, Stoliarov explained: "Our artist did not pursue the goal of creating photographic accuracy. He created an image of the inventor in which all his achievements and inventions are reflected."
According to the company, it is also selling iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Max designs constructed from Tesla parts beginning at $5,600 each. The designs include a picture of Musk in the upper right corner, as well as an engraving produced from a Tesla battery's copper.
