What you need to know

  • Caviar's new Tesla Eletro is an iPhone 13 Pro with a real piece of a Tesla car embedded.
  • Caviar Tesla Electro includes a portrait of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Caviar is a name that many will already be familiar with. It's a company with a reputation for creating limited edition, often weird and/or wonderful, iPhones. Now it's turned its attention to iPhone 13 with a new Caviar Tesla Electro handset that inexplicably has part of a real Tesla car embedded into it.

Oh, and a portrait of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, too.

The phone part is pretty standard fare. Buyers can choose from an iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max with storage options ranging from 128GB to 1TB. The prices are suitably insane as well, going all the way up to $8.380 for a 1TB iPhone 13 Pro Max. But it's the outside of the iPhone that's most interesting. Because it's just so... Caviar.

The titanium body of the smartphone with black PVD coating echoes the ultra-modern look and innovative message of the exclusive Tesla electric cars. The combination of the distinctive features of the cars produced by Elon Musk's concern includes a unique form factor, a synthesis of high-quality materials and a futuristic design making the appearance of the Caviar iPhone 13 Pro Tesla Electro an explosive novelty in the world of luxury gadget customization.

It continues:

In the center of the composition, there is a textured aluminum insert, melted from a real Tesla electric car. The metal panel is decorated with a laconic collage portraying Elon Musk, the Tesla Motors logo and the outlines of an electric car.

Caviar says that the Tesla Electro is limited to 99 pieces and that could help make it one of the best iPhone options for people who like to live on the exclusive side. You might see other iPhones on the streets, but you won't see one of these!

Those interested in buying a Tesla Electro can do so via Caviar right now.
