GEN1 Neon Roadster — Car Description & Stats

The Virtual Racer Neon Roadster is an absolute beast in street racing. Its explosive acceleration and high velocity make this car the perfect choice for speed addicts.

The GEN1 Virtual Racer Neon Roadster is the second CryptoMotors NFT car ever created in a Design Challenge. The concept design was made by automotive designer Chaitanya Rajwade and then developed and 3D-modeled by the CryptoMotors team.

The Neon Roadster is one of two cars from the Virtual Racer family. This segment stands out for its incredible speed and acceleration and its high overall street and drag racing performance.

The Neon Roadster’s stats will be randomly generated when each NFT is minted and unlocked once the car is purchased. The stats will fall within these possible ranges:

Huge shoutout to OpenSea for supporting us in this Drop! 🤘

About the GEN1 Neon Roadster colors

Available colors (from left to right)

  • 🔵 Mr. Zigzag
  • 🔴 Sting Red
  • ⚪️ Silver Daga
  • 🟣 Steam Purple
  • 🟢 Green Hazard

The launch day batch will include 25 NFT Neon Roadster cars, five units per color. The second batch will include 48 units but only four colors.

One of the original colors will be randomly removed from the second batch. That model won’t get minted again, making it a super-rare asset.

Following this same logic, the third batch will bring 75 Neon Roadster units and only three colors. Another model will be randomly removed from the last batch, making it a rare asset.

How to unlock the hidden, ultra-rare Neon Roadster Pink Beast

We decided to reward early collectors with a UNIQUE opportunity to celebrate the launch of the CryptoMotors GEN1 Neon Roadster Production Series cars.

The Neon Roadster drop will include three hidden, ultra-rare Virtual Racer Neon Roadster models featuring a unique design, color, and traits. (one car per batch)

These special Neon Roadster Pink Beast cars will also have powerful stats and perform better in the STAT game and other racing games compared to the standard version.

This ultra-rare asset will be randomly placed among the NFT cars of each batch. Collectors who purchase one of the Neon Roadsters will have the chance of unknowingly picking the special model.

But there’s a trick to it.

Each hidden car will get unlocked if its batch is sold out within the first 24 hours from its launch (July 29th, July 30th, and July 31st).

If the entire batch isn’t sold out during that time frame, the special car won’t get unlocked.

Of course, users who buy more than one Neon Roadster car will increase their chances of getting the ultra-rare NFT model.

Want to get your hands on this unique asset? Be ready to smash the buy button on July 29th!

Why you should buy a Neon Roadster now

The Neon Roadster drop will include only 150 Production Series NFT cars. That’s the total number of Series cars we will ever mint of this model.

In the near future, we will additionally mint 24 special edition Neon Roadster cars in collaboration with other blockchain games and virtual worlds (soon to be announced).

Once all Neon Roadster units are sold out, this model won’t be purchasable through the CryptoMotors marketplace anymore.

When this occurs, users will only be able to acquire Neon Roadster cars from other collectors, and it’ll be the owners of those NFT who decide the price of the assets.
