Daily DRVN #23

Slicing through the noise and getting to the heart of digital vehicle culture

GM, DR🍕RS.  

Yesterday was Bitcoin Pizza Day. I hope you got yourself a celebratory slice, or six.

If you were in NYC you had no excuse. Coinbase rolled out a mobile pizza parlor in NYC, selling $1 slices and some rad merch.

It may not be a flame throwing, tire shredding, turbocharged beast, but we can appreciate the crypto / vehicle crossover all the same!

Although… Now that I mention it… What would it look like if it was? 🤔 

With that out of my system, let’s see what the Automotive Web3 sector has been up to this past week.

The Spirit of Senna Takes Over Monaco - McLaren SENNA Presented by OKX

The McLaren F1 team has been getting a lot of attention as of late. Not least of which is due to Lando’s epic win in Miami, followed by his relentless attack on Championship leader Max, resulting in a very respectable P2 in the Italian GP.

But now, all eyes are on McLaren and their Senna inspired livery as they prepare to hit the streets of Monaco, in truly epic fashion.

This retro wrap is an homage to McLaren’s most decorated driver, Ayrton Senna (AKA, “The King of Monaco”) and his iconic Brazilian themed helmet. The campaign is an activation with their sponsor, crypto exchange OKX. And it appears to be making quite the impact, with the F1 fandom unanimously praising the stunning design.

The press release from OKX indicates that this is part of a larger marketing campaign celebrating their recent expansion to Brazil. While it makes no mention of what exactly is to come, some of the art they released (seen below) hints at possible digital collectibles that could be around the corner, immortalizing the man, the team and the moment on-chain for eternity.

For a deeper dive into the origins of the helmet that became a symbol of dominance, the story below is a must-read.

How this will affect primary sales and secondary demand… Time will tell. But if you are a true Benz fan, the bar has been raised and the value is priceless.

JDM Dream Garage

A look at the collection of iconic rides from our vehicle operations partner, RevHard Motors.

Spoon is synonymous with the heritage of Japanese tuning. RevHard Motor’s owner, Josh is releasing this remarkable 1997 Honda Civic Type R from his personal collection to find a new caretaker. But this is not any Type R. It’s not even any Spoon Sports tuned Type R.

It is THE genuine Spoon Sports demo car that was featured in Hyper Rev Magazine and the original Gran Tourismo videogame.

It embodies the pinnacle of Civic engineering and Spoon Sports' tuning mastery. It's not just a car; it's a chance to own a piece of automotive history, a vehicle meticulously crafted by a revered name in the tuning industry.

Every part of this car has been carefully mastered and maintained to offer an exciting drive while keeping Honda's well-known reliability. While in Josh’s care it has been kept as true and original as possible to the original spec.

Check out the video below to learn about Josh’s personal journey with this car, and understand his passion and knowledge for the rarest and most historically relevant JDM legends.
