The stunt-damaged car was one of 10 W Motors Lykans used in the film

How furious of a Vin Diesel fan are you, and how fast are you willing to act to prove it? 
Because theres a rare and probably pricey piece of memorabilia coming up to auction today: a one-of-10 Lykan HyperSport stunt car used in the filming of Fast & Furious 7, and it comes with some NFT bonuses.
The Lykan HyperSport is usually driven by a 740-horsepower twin-turbo 3.7-liter flat-six with a sequential transmission, but this movie car has a 240-horsepower 2.7-liter flat-six connected to a manual transmission. It also looks like its been driven at a reckless speed through a construction zone, and it kind of has been.
In the seventh installment of the F&F franchise, protagonists Brian and Dom find themselves in Dubai at one point, literally crashing a fancy cocktail party with a W Motors Lykan HyperSport that they then proceed to jump from skyscraper to skyscraper. 
Some Lykans were harmed in the making of these scenes, including this one up for sale, which is dinged up and missing mirrors, wheel caps, some engine components, steering-wheel airbags, an instrument cluster, infotainment centre and so on. It is very much not street-legal. 
If you didnt catch the movie when it first came out in 2015 and cant be bothered now were already up to the ninth sequel, but are still curious about the car, check out this BTS video put together by W Motors. 
The company paired with W Motors to auction the car, RubiX, has also created an NFT in the form of a 3D video and a collection of photos to go with the car as a kind of new-age purchase bonus-slash-digital authenticity report. 
But WTFs an NFT, right? NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are like the sports trading cards of the digital world. Using blockchain technology to prove their one-of-a-kind-ness, these new digital assets allow fans of sports, movies, anything, a way to own their piece. Sports memories like basketball dunks have gained some momentum in the NFT space, but the most expensive NFTs to date exist in the art world.
Pre-bidding for the movie Lykan HyperSport opens today, starting at US$100,000, while the live auction will take place at RubiX on May 11.
