Elon Musk has tweeted an exclamation mark in response to security camera footage of a Tesla electric car 'flying' after its owner ramped it into the air.

The vehicle subsequently crashed into a tree near a school parking lot after the stunt.

Musk has made several controversial tweets of late, including one in which he announced that he was considering taking his company private and had investors who were interested.

The share price shot up before Musk wrote that he wasn't going to go private after all.

He did this without the knowledge of his board and is under investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
