Tesla Model S with Dummy of Ilon Musk Blown up in Finland
It all started when a malfunction message appeared on the screen of his car's on-board computer while driving. The driver couldn't get to a service centre, and had to call a tow truck.
It was later discovered that the cause of the fault was a battery failure. However, because the Tesla Model S turned out to be more than 8 years old, the warranty was no longer valid. The service centre itself estimated the replacement of the battery at around €20,000.
A frustrated driver didn't pay such money and decided to get rid of the American electric car. The YouTube channel Pommijätkät took the car to an abandoned quarry and blew it up with detonators and 30 kg of explosives. Before doing so, a homemade mannequin of Tesla CEO Ilon Musk was placed inside the car.
As a result of the explosion, the car was completely destroyed. Judging by the video, a former owner of an electric car, was very pleased with the incident.
Earlier in Finland bloggers decided to blow up an old hatchback Seat Ibiza with 50 detonators. According to them, this unusual way they decided to test the reliability of the car. The Finns filmed the entire process on 72 Chronos slow-motion cameras, which were installed around the car at a safe distance.
