Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction will auction the world’s very first collector car NFTs at the upcoming 2021 Las Vegas Auction, June 17-19.

The four NFTs, the first of the series of VIN 001 sales, will feature a select group of vehicles that sold for charity during Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction earlier this year in March. The four vehicles include the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition VIN 001, the 2021 Ford Bronco 2-door VIN 001 and the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 VIN 001.

“Barrett-Jackson has blazed the trail in the collector car world for decades, and the roll-out of the first NFTs in our industry is another great example of our team introducing new and exciting ways to engage the hobby,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We’re thrilled to now be the first to introduce the expanding and exciting NFT platform to the collector car world.”

The launch of these exclusive NFTs is done in partnership with Motoclub.io and CurrencyWorks Inc. Motoclub is a digital collectibles marketplace for car enthusiasts who buy and sell automotive memorabilia and provides content and experiences in the form of NFTs. CurrencyWorks, a financial technology blockchain pioneer, NFT and digital payment provider, will provide and operate the curated Motoclub platform for the minting, selling and trading of NFTs.

The auction will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
