‘NFT Cars’: You will never drive these cars


Car manufacturers are rushing into the NFT market. According to estimates, this should reach the net sum of $ 240 billion by the end of the decade.

An artist named Shl0ms sold fragments of reflective film from the explosion of a Lamborghini Huracán.


1. Porsche Taycan NFT Artcar

Porsche Australia

First on the list is Porsche Australia with its Porsche Taycan. It’s not just a photo of the elegant race car from Zuffenhausen. For this digital work of art, Porsche Australia called on the artist Nigel Sense. The latter created three unique NFT snapshots of the Porsche Taycan, which were then converted into virtual tokens using a German NFT company. Since the Taycan is an electric vehicle, the creation of the NFTs was, according to Porsche, done “in a climate-neutral way by being offset by the Porsche Impact program”. All proceeds were donated to the Australian Center for Contemporary Art.

2. Exploded Lamborghini Huracán


The most spectacular NFT car to date was made by an artist named Shl0ms. The latter blew up a Lamborghini Huracán and made a video of it. Subsequently, it offered 999 reflective film fragments of Lamborghini Huracán for sale as non-fungible tokens. Those who buy such a token will also receive a small video clip and a fragment of the damaged supercar. According to Shl0ms, he and his team spent two weeks testing explosives and techniques on other vehicles before an explosives expert unleashed a Huracán at a cost of around 250,000 euros.

3. Alpine Concept NFT


It is a true gem that the car manufacturer Alpine has delivered with its first digital concept GTA Concept. To do this, the French called the hypercar designer NFT nfast. Alpine GTA Concept is available in five NFT versions, each with a different paint. One of them has blue lines representing the topographic outline and GPS coordinates of Mont-Blanc, visible only through a pair of anaglyph 3D glasses. The icing on the cake: Owners can virtually run their digital concept in Revv Racing, a blockchain-based racing game from Animoca Brands.

4. Rolls-Royce Black Badge NFT

Rolls Royce

British carmaker Rolls-Royce has also commissioned a designer to design a piece of digital art for its wealthy customers and has gone all the way through creating an NFT of the new Ghost’s Black Badge Special Edition. NFT is an animation by artist and illustrator Mason London and pays tribute to the legacy of the extravagant Rolls-Royce Black Badge series. According to Rolls-Royce, the Black Badge NFT is stored in an encrypted wallet at the company’s headquarters in Goodwood. However, the manufacturer failed to reveal the exact price of Rolls-Royce’s NFT, but knowing that the brand’s customers are ready to shell out several millions for a bespoke luxury bus, the digital work of art is undoubtedly far from a gift from God. .

5. Nissan GT-R + NFT


Nissan attracted attention in Canada with the NFT of a special edition of the GT-R Nismo. The digital artwork, a creation of Alex McLeod, was sold at auction for $ 2.3 million, more than ten times the actual price of a Nissan GT-R. It is unclear what the lucky owner plans to do with his new supercar token. All that is known is that Nissan and the artist donated the profits from the auction to charity.

6. Like HyperSport Stunt Car NFT


Before Nissan auctioned a car NFT, Lykan did the same with the only surviving stunt car from the recordings for ‘Fast & Furious 7’. The vehicle was driven despite a damaged interior, scratched paint, broken windows, lack of air intake at the rear, damaged grille and the absence of a mirror. The NFTs in this snippet of film history from the “Fast & Furious” series were exclusive images and 3D videos of the $ 525,000 stunt car Lykan Hypersport.

7. Ferrari 296 GTB NFT from DMC


Ferrari’s first road-going V6-powered model was a technological marvel, but for the German tuner DMC, the Ferrari 296 GTB was not spectacular enough. Despite its 818 hp, the tuner found that it lacked power. A pair of carbon fiber air chargers, a two-piece front lip, a spoiler, a diffuser and two new side skirts later, the tuned Ferrari 296 GTB had become an 888 hp monster. But just exposing the copy in a showroom would still have been way too boring. The idea was that the pimped supercar from Italy would be sold using a payment method that involved cryptocurrency and come up with a 3D NFT of the car. In this particular case, the future owner will not only have the benefit of having the right car in his garage, but will also be able to spin through the metaverse with the NFT version.

8. Hot Wheels NFT

Hot Wheels

The days of playing in the sandbox with our Hot Wheels are over! Of course you can still buy them, but even Hot Wheels have evolved over time. For some time now, the miniature carmaker has been offering a whole range of elegant cars in its “NFT garage”, and this starts at $ 25 each. There is, however, a small notch, for whoever buys a Hot Wheels NFT does not receive a digital model, but a kind of pocket similar to the one in a video game that contains several cars of the same series. The idea is that buyers swap series and thus complete their collection. As in the football picture collector’s album, rare models that can later increase in value are hidden among the Hot Wheels NFTs.
