Raven Cars NFT Is the first luxury brand in the metaverse, to know we’ve met and interviewed Matthew Gentile, 37, Romanian, designer of luxury super sports cars: worked on Bugatti and Lamborghini. A few months ago, he founded with 3 of his friends and ex-colleagues an NFT startup Hypercar that in a few months has gained the consistency of a car brand in all respects (except manufacturing of course).
The startup is precisely Raven Cars and lives in the world of Web 3, the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency, which for many utopians will also mark the end of the dominance of big tech companies, immediately famous for being very skilled with what machines they make. This is because the team led by Matteo is a team of true professionals in the sector, the exterior designers and 3D modelers who really design the cars.
Among the latest news of the brand is the launch of the new Raven GTS Sleeping with Art Edition Presented for the latest edition that brings together car enthusiasts, artists and car brands to celebrate creativity. The new car model will be available for sale on OpenSea from November. Inspired by the event, the GTS was designed using the event’s colors and logo.
Raven Cars NFT: The interview with Matteo Gentile
Today, specifically, the Metaverse is still a concept. Raven Cars produces NFTs with mathematics embedded (3D graphics): this means that they produce digital assets that can be used by CGI studios, the game industry, and simulations.
He argues if by Metaverse we mean the explosion of the content business in virtual reality Matthew GentileSo we’re really the first luxury car brand in the Metaverse.
Furthermore, Raven Cars is proof that the famous franchise of Italian automobile design has never been so prosperous, and indeed so well functioning, in the Metaverse, because it has found the freest and highest expression there, but above all its valorization as the ultimate asset.
He explains that Raven is a limited-run sports car brand Matthew GentileYou can’t drive it yet in real life, but you can own it in your digital life. We produce Digital Collectible Objects, or NFTs, because we firmly believe that more and more of our activities and use of everyday objects will take place in an interconnected world based on the so-called WEB 3 technology, the New Internet. Most tangible objects, from a house to a car, will have an exact copy of themselves in the futuristic virtual world that technology creates.
After being noticed by some trusted international bloggers (including the popular Hypebeast) on Instagram, Raven Cars has gained more than 20,000 followers in just three months.
Perhaps the secret is that since car design is one of our specialties and most of the team comes from this sector, with professional deformation we take care of every detail of our 3D projects, like crazy, and tackle the same issues that these cars would have. If they were manufactured in the “physical” world. This makes Raven a complete digital car brand, fully web3 compliant, where the difference is no longer between real and virtual, but rather between “real”, i.e. unique, non-replicable, original and “false”. When they ask me “But what do you do with it next?” I replied, “The same thing you’re doing with Andy Warhol hanging in the living room.”
Raven Cars NFT: Gran Turismo
The first vehicle launched by Raven Cars is the A.I GT is very stylishGran Turismo with supercar connotations. Anyone who buys one also comes with a bunch of tech info like displacement, engine, and acceleration, just as if it’s just missing the key and registration.
OUR QUALITY IS OUR BEST: Every Raven model is built like it’s going to go into production, you never know one day it won’t… Their design is unique and we rely heavily on the creation of our DNA. We are a unique brand and we want to be recognized for our aesthetic language. In the NFT world, uniqueness and rarity are indispensable, for Raven every model is “truly” unique, and we will increasingly tend to create collectors’ items in increasingly limited editions. We also intend to offer our customers the possibility to configure Raven to the maximum: colors, liveries, etc.
How long does it take to make a crow?
The Raven creation process begins with a blank sheet of paper and a pencil. The first act of developing an amazing project always starts with transferring a mental vision of the object onto the piece of paper. This stage was already present in automotive design a century ago and still is in 2022. This process is fundamental, but above all magical and spiritual.
The second stage is the 3D modeling, which solidifies the shapes and shows the construction problems: at Raven the production team is extremely expert in the art of “translating” design from 2D to 3D, and with these skills we can get full formal control of our cars. The third stage is the visualization of our product and is probably the most satisfying stage but it is also the stage that makes you aware of what has been created. Finally, we get to simulate our product in real-world environments and see it in its final expression, but it is also a stage where we better understand the flaws and weaknesses of the design and sometimes go back to the piece of paper to fix it. Nothing is left to chance, it doesn’t matter if it’s a real, tangible object or just a digital one, for us every Raven really exists and we take care of every detail as best we can. The prototype development phase can be summed up in 3 months of intense work including all stages of design, but since our team is made up of perfectionists, times often drag on.
Italy is the land of engines: the automotive sector is perhaps one of the industrial sectors for which we are most famous internationally. Ask any kid anywhere in the world to draw you a car, and they’ll paint it red… I started making every car I saw at the age of four, and to this day I only feel comfortable designing cars. The rest of the time for me is to wait before the next project begins.
