Diehard Elon Musk fans have created a 30-foot-long monument dedicated to their hero – and it cost them over half a million pounds ($600,000).
The piece is unique because it shows the richest man in world attached to goat’s body and riding on a rocket.
It is the creation of Elon GOAT Token ($EGT), a cryptocurrency company. They plan to present the token to billionaire Tesla at his Austin, Texas workplace.
$EGT explained: “Most people thought we would never do it, but after one year of building the time has come to bring it home to Elon.
“We want to just meet him and give it to them. He is truly the greatest innovator alive. Therefore, he has been awarded the GOAT – Greatest Of All Time.

The 5’9” tall aluminium head of the statue was built by Canadian metal sculptors Kevin and Michelle Stone.
Kevin told local news they spent more than 700 hours on the likeness.
“I’m pretty proud of it because it totally looks like him,” he told Maple Ridge News.
Explaining their idea, $EGT said: “We built Elon Musk a $600,000 monument on the back of a semi-trailer in honour of his many accomplishments and commitment to Cryptocurrency.”
They say they will deliver it on Saturday, 26 November, adding “We invite you to attend and join us in asking Elon to claim this historical gift.
“We’re going to have fun for a few hours and then all the cars and trucks will hit the freeway behind the monument, destined for Tesla’s Gigafactory.”
Gigafactory Texas is Tesla’s global headquarters, and the U.S. manufacturing hub for the Model Y and Cybertruck.
