NFTs are taking over the world, and now another first in this digital revolution is about to take place. Thanks to Rubix Market, a very rare W Motors Lykan HyperSport stunt car from Fast & Furious 7 is up for auction as the first physically-backed on-chain automotive NFT in the world, giving the buyer not just a set of digital assets but also the car itself.

More specifically, the NFT sale includes a video of the NFT, a lifelike rendering of the stunt car, as well as the actual real-life Lykan HyperSport stunt car. It is one of the few that was used in F&F 7 when Vin Diesel and Paul Walker jumped between skyscrapers in the UAE, and as a result of its actions, this ultra-rare hypercar is complete with all its Hollywood blockbuster scars.

As for the car itself, it’s not quite the Lykan HyperSport you’d imagine. While road-going versions came fitted with a 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine that is good for 780 HP, the stunt car was actually fitted with a 2.7-liter flat-six that produces 240 BHP. It’s not road-legal, and plenty of the finishing touches inside are missing or damaged — for example, the instrument cluster and infotainment system is gone completely.

Despite all of this, the Lykan HyperSport is still a piece of automotive-meets-Hollywood history. For that reason alone, bidding starts at $100,000 USD, but the final sale estimate is vast with a range between $750,000 USD and $2,500,000 USD. Take a look at the NFT above, and find out more about the auction (which commences on 11 May 2021 15.00-16.30 CET) on Rubix Market’s website.
