One of the most expensive iPhones money can buy, created by a Russian firm, is on its way to billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

The gold plated handset, inspired by Musk, Steve Jobs and Nikola Tesla, has its own solar panel to keep the battery topped up.

It's available in two versions, one which has 64GB memory and costs 284,000 rubles (£3,400 or $4,600).

A higher capacity version, which can hold 256GB, costs 299,000 rubles (£3,580 or £4,830).

The phones are engraved with the phrase 'Made on Earth by humans', a nod to Musk using the phrase on a circuit board aboard the Tesla Roadster he launched into space on the back of his Falcon Heavy rocket.

Caviar, the firm behind its creations, says it has received pre-orders for 999 of the exclusive handsets.
