McLaren has given us a glimpse of what the future might hold with their NFT release. The NFTs are currently only available for purchase on Ethereum and can be collected in game, traded or bought through an online marketplace
The “mclaren 2021 f1” is a new NFT that allows users to purchase the McLaren F1 car from MSO Lab. The car was built in 1981 and has been used by many famous people including Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, and Ayrton Senna.
The Genesis McLaren NFTs collection was launched by McLaren Automotive, a British Formula 1 racing team, in collaboration with McLaren Special Operations Lab (MSO lab). On May 11th, the NFT collection of luxury supercars was released at a price of 0.5 Ethereum each mint. The collection is currently available for purchase on the Opensea NFT market after it sold out. The McLaren genesis collection is the automaker’s first step into the metaverse.
McLaren is a Formula One racing team known for its cutting-edge technology on the track. It was, for example, the first Formula One vehicle with a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. It is the second-oldest Formula One team, as well as the second-most successful, having won 186 races, 12 driver championships, and eight constructor championships.
It has also expanded into the premium supercar sector in recent years. The McLaren GT, which starts at $203,000, is the most expensive of the high-end road vehicles. But don’t worry, their NFT collection isn’t too pricey.
