To the moon and back: Lamborghini presents the exclusive Space Key NFT

January 19, 2022

Automobili Lamborghini have announced the first NFT (non-fungible token) project in the company’s history. The space-themed artwork – the 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 fibre composite material that Lamborghini sent to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2019 as part of a joint research project.

After the return from space including all relevant tests for research purposes, the carbon fibre 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 fibre.  Lamborghini enters into the NFT world in cooperation with NFT Pro. 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.
