LNFT00001 Lamborghini Space Key presented in its Suitcase
Metaverse, get ready for Lamborghini.
Automobili Lamborghini has announced the first NFT (non-fungible token recorded on a Blockchain as a digital asset that is authentic and trackable) project in the company’s history. Social media posts around the theme “To the Moon” have been hinting at it, now the space-themed artwork – the so-called Lamborghini Space Key – has been officially revealed and will soon be auctioned.
At the heart of this exclusive project, developed together with a yet undisclosed artist and limited to five units, is a piece of advanced carbon fiber composite material that Lamborghini sent to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2019 as part of a joint research project. After its return from space including all relevant tests for research purposes, the carbon fiber composite is now part of the Space Key: these materials mark yet another milestone for the company, this time as a gateway into the NFT world. Each of the five Space Keys is linked to an exclusive and purely digital artwork by the same artist through the QR code on the backside of the carbon fiber.
The 3D printed LNFT00001 comes in its own suitcase
“Innovation is a deeply rooted part of the Lamborghini DNA,” explains Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “As a leading company for carbon fiber composite materials within the automotive sector we pushed boundaries two and a half years ago with the joint research project in space. Now entering the metaverse is again proof of Lamborghini always setting sail for new horizons. The NFT world has been calling to us, and we are excited about engaging with this very passionate and innovative community.”
Lamborghini enters into the NFT world in cooperation with NFT PRO™ (the number one enterprise white-label NFT solution for global brands, making NFT campaigns seamless). Further details will be shared in the following days and weeks, including the name of the artist of the Space Key and digital artwork, the nature of this unique piece of art, the auction house, as well as the date and time of the auction with the link to the auction registration.
Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.
Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.
It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.
