The first NFT of the Acura Integra has traded hands on the OpenSea marketplace.
The first 500 people who reserved the sporty new sedan were able to mint an NFT of the Integra in the form of a piece of digital art showing it bathed in gold and sitting on a platform over a large body of water.
A number of these NFTs have hit OpenSea in recent months but this one, number #303 of the 500 being minted, appears to have been the first to sell. As noticed by Tiremeetsroads, it traded hands for 0.35 ETH or the equivalent of $416 at the time of writing.
It’s hard to judge where prices for the Integra NFTs will go in the future. In March, the owner of one listed it up for sale for 12 ETH, which was more than $37,000 at the time and more than the car itself. Unsurprisingly, no one is willing to pay even a fraction of that asking price for an NFT that is one of 500 and not even a unique one-off like those that do trade hands for five or six figure sums.
Interestingly, the Integra NFTs weren’t limited to those who have actually gone through with the purchase of the car, and simply offered to the first 500 to reserve one. Those who have actually taken delivery of the new Integra are able to upgrade their NFT to an animated one.
The 2023 Acura Integra is based around the Honda Civic Si and features the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine muscling out 200 hp and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. This engine is coupled to a CVT as standard but a six-speed manual is also available in the range-topping Integra A-Spec Technology Package.
