published

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 racing car from Zuffenhausen. For this digital artwork, Porsche Australia called on the artist Nigel Sense. The latter took three unique NFT snapshots of the Porsche Taycan, which were then converted into virtual tokens with the help of a German NFT company. Since the Taycan is an electric vehicle, the creation of the NFTs was done “in a climate neutral manner by being offset by the Porsche Impact program,” according to Porsche. All proceeds were donated to the Australian Center for Contemporary Art.

2. Exploded Lamborghini Huracán

The most spectacular NFT car to date was created by an artist named Shl0ms. The latter blew up a Lamborghini Huracán and made a video of it. It then offered 999 reflective film clips of the Lamborghini Huracán for sale as non-replaceable tokens. In addition, those who purchase such a token will receive a small video clip and a fragment of the destroyed supercar. According to Shl0ms, he and his team spent two weeks testing explosives and techniques on other vehicles before an explosives expert let loose on a Huracán priced at around $250,000.

3. Alpine Concept NFT

It is a real gem that car manufacturer Alpine has delivered with its first digital concept GTA Concept. For this, the French called on the hypercar designer NFT nfast. The Alpine GTA Concept is available in five NFT versions, each with a different paint job. One shows blue lines representing the topographical route and GPS coordinates of Mont-Blanc, visible only with anaglyph 3D glasses. The icing on the cake: owners can race virtually with 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 create a digital artwork for its wealthy clients and has pulled out all the stops by creating an NFT of the new Ghost’s Black Badge Special Edition. Animated by artist and illustrator Mason London, the NFT celebrates the legacy of the extravagant Rolls-Royce Black Badge series. According to Rolls-Royce, the Black Badge NFT will be stored in an encrypted wallet at the company’s headquarters in Goodwood. However, the manufacturer has declined to reveal the exact price of Rolls-Royce’s NFT, but knowing that the brand’s customers are willing to shell out several million for a luxury custom coach, the digital artwork is undoubtedly far from it. an outcome. †

5. Nissan GT-R + NFT

Nissan

Nissan caused a stir in Canada with the NFT of a special edition GT-R Nismo. The digital artwork, created by Alex McLeod, 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 the token of his new supercar. All that is known is that Nissan and the artist donated the proceeds of the auction to charity.

6. Lykan HyperSport stunt car NFT

Lycan

Before Nissan auctioned a car NFT, Lykan did the same with the only remaining stunt car from the ‘Fast & Furious 7’ filming. The vehicle took off despite a damaged interior, scratched paintwork, broken windows, missing rear air intake, damaged grille and lack of a mirror. The NFTs in this slice of movie history of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise were exclusive images and 3D videos of the Lykan Hypersport stunt car, which sold for $525,000.

7. Ferrari 296 GTB NFT by DMC

Ferrari

Ferrari’s first V6-powered road model was a technological marvel, but for German tuner DMC, the Ferrari 296 GTB wasn’t spectacular enough. Despite its 818 horsepower, the tuner found that it lacked power. A pair of carbon fiber aerodynamic plates, 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 simply displaying the example in a showroom would have been far too boring. The idea was that the pimped up supercar from Italy would be sold via a cryptocurrency payment method and come with a 3D NFT of the car. In this particular case, the future owner not only has the advantage of having the real car in his garage, but can also spin through the metaverse with the NFT version.

8. Hot Wheels NFT

Hot Wheels

Gone are the days of playing in the sandbox with our Hot Wheels! Sure, you can still buy them, but even Hot Wheels has evolved over time. For some time now, the miniature car manufacturer has been offering a whole range of elegant cars in its “NFT garage”, starting at $25 each. There is a small catch, however, because whoever buys a Hot Wheels NFT does not get a digital model, but a kind of bag similar to that of a multi-car video game of the same series. The idea is that buyers exchange series and thus complete their collection. As in the albums of football photo collectors, rare models that may increase in value later are hidden among the Hot Wheels NFTs.
