When Diogo decided he wanted to launch this collection, he wanted to stand out amongst the crowd and do something no one thought was possible; spray paint a Lamborghini Super Trofeo EVO1 Racecar suspended via crane in front of a live audience for all to see. Diogo accomplished just that and took it one step further, he transformed that physical artwork into an augmented reality NFT to sell on the New World platform by utilizing New Worlds in house motion capture 3D scanning technology. It is the first NFT racecar in history that came with a physical car provided by Ansa Motorsports and vinyl wrapped by Wraptors at a price of 78 ETH, which is approximately $400,000 CAD and has already been sold to Garry Letichever from Auto Quest Group along with various other NFTs in the collection being sold out as well.
Diogo Snow states, "When we started New World, our goal was to give creators, musicians, and celebrities access to an NFT distribution canvas to create and sell digital art. Through this collection, I proved that art has no boundaries or limitations and the NFTs speak for themselves." With 2022 just around the corner and notable artists on the New World roster such as Elias Theodorou, Mia Martina, Karl Wolf, Ariane Lipski and The Rush Fam, New World is excited to showcase what their groundbreaking NFT platform can do. They plan to develop a curated marketplace with multiple exclusive drops every month from famous artists, musicians, and creators.
