Lamborghini announces the launch of its NFT project: Space Time Memory. It is a series of five photographs of a Lamborghini Ultimae taking off to the stars and celebrates human space exploration.
Swiss artist Fabian Oefner created the compositions from real elements, capturing more than 1,500 individual parts of a real car.

“Memories of the space age and the imagination that leads humankind to discover new worlds. ‘Space Time Memory’ represents all this, as explained by Swiss artist Fabian Oefner. The auctions for our incredible, first-ever NFT project start today”.
The Space Time Memory NFT project was created by Swiss artist Fabian Oefner along with his team, in a two-month effort to assemble all the images in an artificial moment in time.
In this regard, Oefner commented:
“For me, Space Time Memory is an analogy to the memories we make in life. Memories are rooted in the physical world; we make them in reality. We then store them in our brains, what could be considered the digital world”.
Lamborghini NFT and the auctions of the five Space Time Memories
The five NFT digital artworks are accessible via a QR code embedded in five units of a physical object, the Space Key, whose carbon fiber elements were sent to the International Space Station as part of a joint research project with Lamborghini.
NFT PRO and RM Sotheby’s have confirmed that they will begin receiving auction bids on Space Time Memory beginning 1 February, and will continue until 4 February.
At the time of writing, it is possible to see the progress of the auctions on the Lamborghini NFT website which, with an initial bid of $100, have now all exceeded $12,000 with the NFT SPACE TIME MEMORY – T+0071S being above $32,000.
The price is displayed in US dollars, but the auction is expected to accept cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), DAI, DOGE, SHIB, USDC and WBTC.
The first official NFTs of the Italian luxury car brand.
As it turns out, this is not the first time Lamborghini is causing a buzz when it comes to NFTs. On 25 September, its first official Non Fungible Tokens were put up for sale on the Elysium Bridge platform.
The event was announced by the owners of the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum, who launched the NFTs dedicated to the history of the Italian luxury car brand, in order to realize rare pieces of their private collection in digital format.
The artists involved in the creation of the NFTs of the Lamborghini family were Emanuele Dascanio, Maciej Kuciara, Matteo Mauro and Giovanni Motta.
