'Fast & Furious 9' is hitting theaters in less than two months, so there is no better time to binge-watch the last eight films (plus the 'Hobbs and Shaw' spin-off film) in the franchise & enjoy some crazy carnage. 'Furious 7' features one of the most famous stunts in the franchise, in which Vin Diesel & the late Paul Walker crash a Lykan Hypersport through multiple skyscrapers in Dubai.
Lykan built ten stunt cars specifically for the film. All but one were destroyed, & it's heading to auction this month. A company called RubiX is hosting the sale on May 11 with pre-bidding already starting at $100,000.
"We are honored khổng lồ be partnering with W Motors khổng lồ bring this piece of pop culture history lớn market as the first vehicle NFT (non-fungible token) in which the buyer will take ownership of the physical asset along with exclusive digital content - this has never been done before in NFTs," said Nithin Palavalli, CEO of RubiX. "As NFTs continue to lớn infiltrate different industries, RubiX is pioneering technological advancements that will shape the future of automotive sales & W Motors is the perfect partner to work with lớn bring this to lớn market."
The surviving stunt car clearly took a lot of punishment during filming. The oto being auctioned has scratched paintwork, windshield and windows, a missing rear air intake, a damaged front grille, and no mirrors.
There is also damage lớn the interior dashboard and two-tone leather seats. & while the production hypercar is powered by a 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat six generating 780 horsepower and 708 lb-ft of torque, the stunt oto only has a 2.7-liter flat six rated at 240 hp. Sadly, the it isn't road-legal.
Despite this, the movie oto is expected lớn fetch between $750,000 and $2.5 million since it starred in one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. That's still cheaper than the real Hypersport, which had a $3.4 million price tag when it was new, making it even more expensive than a Bugatti Chiron due lớn its exclusivity and opulent diamond-encrusted headlights. The winning bidder will also receive a non-fungible token (NFT) package including exclusive images và 3D videos of the Lykan Hypersport stunt car. The oto also has a unique QR code engraved khổng lồ prove ownership.
