At the present, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are a popular issue. It is just unavoidable that an exploding supercar garners attention. This one caught our eye, and it’s not as if we haven’t seen our fair share of damaged supercars. Therefore, for better or worse, watch in slow motion as this 2015 Lamborghini Huracan departs stage left in the video above.
Naturally, the slow-motion movie is just a component of the tale. SHL0MS (that’s a zero instead of the letter O, by the way) is a conceptual artist who loaded a 2015 Huracan with enough explosives to effectively destroy it. We do not know the kind or quantity of explosives used, but an engineering and explosives team adjusted everything to ensure that the Lambo components were “aesthetically acceptable,” according to an email we received.
That’s fantastic since the project’s objective is to record 999 films of carefully selected music. Each video portrays a rotating perspective of the sculpture and, of course, each video becomes an NFT with its code. All of the NFTs will be auctioned off beginning February 25 to demonstrate that the individual components are worth more than the whole vehicle. With a beautiful 2015 Huracan retailing for around $230,000, each NFT must sell for approximately $230.
Surprisingly, the press statement indicates that the whole exercise is tied (or not) to Lamborghini supposedly targeting NFT musicians. Lamborghini has lately begun its own odd NFT adventure, indicating that it is a thing. It remains to be seen whether video clips of charred Lamborghini chunks will pique public interest.
