If you’ve watched Fast và Furious 7, then you’ll know all about the Lykan HyperSport we’ll be discussing today. That’s because it’s the red supercar Vin Diesel và Paul Walker famously jumped from one building into another. Now, the supercar used in the movie heads to lớn auction. However, this is by no means a normal car auction.
According to Rubix, the car up for sale is the last remaining stunt oto utilized in the movie. However, this oto isn’t just being sold as a car. Instead, it’s being sold as an NFT. In short, this means you also get ownership of digital assets tied lớn the vehicle.
How many Lykan HyperSports are there?
If this is the first time you hear about the Lykan HyperSport without its connection to lớn the famous movie, you’re not alone. That’s because only a total of seven of these cars were meant for production. The keyword here is “meant.” With a price tag of $3.4 million, it certainly isn’t easy khổng lồ sell, even to lớn uber-wealthy billionaires.
The whole appeal of this supercar was that it was designed & built by a middle eastern company for the middle east. Since this oto has billionaires as its target audience, it won’t surprise you to lớn learn that it houses diamonds in its front headlights.
Peel back the skin, and you’ll find that the Lykan HyperSport is secretly a Ruf CTR3 underneath. You even get a Ruf-built 3.7-liter flat-six engine pushing out 780 hp và 708 lb-ft.
Chances are, however, that you’ll never see one in the flesh. That’s because no one has. In fact, you can go online but won’t find videos of this oto in high-performance scenarios. Instead, it rolls along quietly from tự động show to auto show.

As you might imagine then, this auction isn’t for one of the seven proposed Lykan HyperSport models. Instead, it’s for one of the stunt cars utilized for filming. According lớn Motor1, a total of 10 stunt cars were made for the movie, và this one that’s up for sale is the last surviving one.
As you might imagine, this stunt oto doesn’t have any of the original car’s exotic materials or powertrain. Instead, this stunt car houses a 2.7-liter flat-six pushing out 240 hp. While it does have a manual transmission, this oto is by no means road legal. As a result, the winner of the bid is winning a piece of movie memorabilia.
