Caviar is back with another crazy (and wildly expensive) custom iPhone. Its latest model, which is dubbed the Tesla Electro, contains a real piece from a Tesla car and is available in iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max versions.

You can get yours with up to 1TB of storage, but be warned that prices can reach an eye-watering $8,380.

Caviar’s newest iPhone packs Tesla parts

Caviar is famous for its luxury gadgets, which typically contain precious metals, pricey jewels, and fancy artwork. It has previously made solid gold AirPods, and a gold and diamond iPhone 11 Pro that cost up to $120,000.

The company’s latest offering isn’t quite as pricey, but it’s certainly not affordable, either. The Tesla Electro iPhone features a titanium chassis with black PVD coating, and white metal accents designed to echo Tesla’s design.

Its big selling point is the piece of aluminum on its back, white features the Tesla logo and a portrait of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and was melted down from a real Tesla car panel. There’s also a copper insert carrying the Caviar logo.

“Caviar iPhone 13 Pro Tesla Electro is an ideal gift for a modern successful person who is passionate about high technologies and trailblazing ideas and eager to shape a bright future for humanity,” Caviar says.

Prices start at $6,760

Under all those high-end materials, the iPhone itself is unchanged. It packs the same Super Retina XDR display, blazing-fast A15 Bionic chip, and features like Face ID. However, because of all the metal, iPhone charging is gone.

Prices start at $6,760 for the base iPhone 13 Pro model with 128GB of storage, while iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $7,300. If you opt for the latter with the maximum 1TB of storage, prices reach a whopping $8,380.
