You had a chance to own a limited edition Tesla tequila bottle, but you blew it.
On Wednesday, right around the company’s earnings announcement for its Q1 results, the Tesla Shop Bot (a Twitter account that notifies of new items in Tesla’s online store) discovered that a limited edition Tesla was Tequila available for purchase.
The price was obviously $420, a reference to marijuana and an (endlessly) running joke for Elon Musk, who once tweeted about taking Tesla private for $420 a share.
The original price for the Tesla Tequila, which started as an April Fool’s joke but became a real product in 2020, was $250. The Limited Edition variant, on the other hand, comes with two drinking glasses. Additionally, Tesla’s website says these are the last 420 bottles of the tequila, with an engraved number from 1 to 420, making these valuable collectibles likely.
The tequila itself, which is actually produced by nosotroshas 40 percent ABV and comes in a lightning bolt shaped 750ml bottle.
