Politician and championship poker player Tony G (Antanas Guoga) acquired the “Bahrain Edition 2020” car NFT for his Super Fast racing esports team with a final bid of 2,650,000 REVV, equivalent to 138.72 ether or approximately US$77,414 at the time of sale.
The auction for the ultra-rare “Bahrain Edition 2020” Apex car NFT began on 1 December 2020 and ended on 4 December 2020. Bidding was conducted in REVV, Animoca Brands’ token for blockchain motorsports.
The “Bahrain Edition 2020” auction ended just two days after Animoca Brands sold the first segment of the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco 2020 track at auction for approximately US$223,000, which was the highest price ever paid for a game-based NFT, branded game NFT, and, potentially, any NFT (refer to announcement of 2 December 2020).
Luca Lamberti, president of the Super Fast racing team said: “I’m extremely happy with the first Apex car on our team. The Bahrain Edition 2020 is a most welcome addition to Super Fast and it will make us even more competitive. F1 Delta Time is a great game with a fantastic ecosystem and a wonderful community. We believe in a bright future for the NFT industry, especially for the play-to-earn model being pioneered by companies like Animoca Brands.

The livery of the “Bahrain Edition 2020” car features glittering, circular ripples with a pearlescent colour profile and sinuous lines that represent the waters of Bahrain’s shoreline. The design is finished with splashes of neons inspired by Bahrain’s dramatic night skyline.
In F1® Delta Time there are 5 rarity and power levels for cars: Apex, Legendary, Epic, Rare, and Common, with Apex being the most powerful and scarce. As an Apex car, the “Bahrain Edition 2020” represents the pinnacle of performance available in the game.
