Volkswagen released a teaser, Friday, which shows the silhouette of a Volkswagen Golf accompanied by a caption that unleashed the new Sherlock Holmes of the web, this reads: “We are launching an NFT (specifically -New-Fast Transporter). Coming in February 2022“.
To paraphrase a scene from the 1980 film “A lot beautiful”, directed by Carlo Verdone, let’s say too “In what sense?”
NFTs (Non-Fungible Token) indicate a set of digital information present within a blockchain that confers rights and characteristics on a specific subject.
Perhaps this is the first clue that the German company is leading the way in possible alternative businesses In this compound. After all, other automotive realities are looking towards this world with great interest, and Nissan, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Alpine have already faced this new world, with some proposals.
Or this is just a mockery (and I would bet given the pun “New Fast Transporter ‘). Perhaps the reference to an NFT has absolutely nothing to do with what will be revealed in February; maybe we will see together a new sports variant of the new Golf. To be clear, perhaps the GTI TCR. And with the rear wing so prominent in the teaser, it’s not entirely a weird idea.
