Bentley will launch a collection of just 208 NFTs on Ethereum‘s leading second-layer solution, Polygon.
The number 208 was not chosen randomly as it corresponds to the top speed of the Bentley Continental GT in miles per hour.
Bentley added that owners will benefit from “exclusive community opportunities, rewards and unique utilities – to be announced soon.”
The limited edition 208 is more than just a number. It represents the speed of Bentley’s first performance cars. Type R Continental and Grand Tourer. With their legendary supremacy, these vehicles hold a special place in the evolution of their design.
Bentley chose Polygon because it supports the network’s commitment to being fully green by the end of the year and its move to carbon neutrality. As a result, all of Bentley’s NFT collections will be carbon neutral.
Bentley is a member of the carbon neutral movement and aims to be zero carbon by 2030. Instead of using fossil fuels, all Bentley vehicles run on electric batteries. The automaker’s first Web3 effort is to stick with the same format.
