Because yes, we have to say that: the Alpine GTA Concept only exists in the computer. He is crypto art, a so-called NFT (Non-Fungible Token). And to be quite honest, we don’t really understand what an NFT is. An NFT is a digital object that is based on the same technology as bitcoin: the blockchain. It is unique and cannot be copied. In March of this year, an NFT was sold at Christie’s auction house for $69 million.
Alpine GTA Concept conceived by hypercar NFT manufacturer
Alpine now jumps into the NFT hype with the GTA Concept. The study model was conceived in collaboration with NFast, a startup that specializes in the design and production of hypercars in the form of NFTs. Let that sink in: apparently there is a company that specializes in the design and production of hypercars in the form of NFTs. To quote Roger Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon: “I’m getting too old for this shit.”
If you win the car, you can race it virtually
Anyway, Alpine is going to sell five NFTs of the GTA Concept, all in a different color scheme. Interested parties can bid on OpenSea.io. The auction closes on Friday, November 5. You must of course have a crypto wallet to participate. Funny thing is, the winning bidders can use their Alpine GTA Concept in a blockchain racing game: REVV Racing.
