The exclusive Space Key by Lamborghini is paired with carbon fiber flown into outer space
January 19, 2022: As the world is gripped by the NFT-fever, Automobili Lamborghini enters this fascinating world with an equally fascinating artwork. 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 with a yet undisclosed artist and limited to five units, is a piece of advanced carbon fiber composite material that Lamborghini sent to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2019 as part of a joint research project. After returning from space, the carbon fiber composite is now part of the Space Key. 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 fiber.
Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, said, “As a leading company for carbon fiber composite materials within the automotive sector we pushed boundaries two and a half years ago with the joint research project in space. Now entering the metaverse is again proof of Lamborghini always setting sail for new horizons. The NFT world has been calling to us, and we are excited about engaging with this very passionate and innovative community.”
Released at an opportune time, Lamborghini enters the NFT world in cooperation with NFT PRO – an organization that helps brands create, sell and distribute NFT-based digital assets.
Further details on the artwork 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.
