The collaboration between the McQueen Estate, Verified Labs, artist Michael Kalish, Triumph Motorcycles, and IEL has resulted in the creation of 1,000 NFTs that pay tribute to Steve McQueen’s love for motorcycles.

Scheduled to debut on July 14th on ThetaDrop, this collection draws inspiration from a Kalish portrait of McQueen from 2022. In addition, the project has received a distinctive and personal touch from McQueen’s grandson, Chase, who has made his own contributions to the collection.

Buyers of the ‘King of Cool Racing Team’ Steve McQueen NFTs will be rewarded with a digital motorcycle shipping crate. Upon unveiling, they will unveil an exclusive virtual Triumph Bonneville T100 Motorcycle, each with its own distinctive features.

The unveiling of the virtual Triumph Bonneville T100 Motorcycle will grant purchasers membership into the esteemed King of Cool Racing Team, providing them with exclusive access to forthcoming token-gated content, events, and games. Furthermore, each digital asset encompasses a meticulously crafted 3D portrait of Steve McQueen, which can be experienced in exquisite detail using a virtual reality headset or Sony’s Spatial Reality Display.

Known for his iconic performances in “The Cincinnati Kid,” “The Magnificent Seven,” and “The Towering Inferno,” Bi McQueen transcended the realm of acting to embrace his true passion as a fervent motorcycle enthusiast. Beyond his impressive acting career, he amassed a notable collection of Triumph motorcycles and Hot Rods while actively engaging in various racing events.

In contrast, Justin Trevor Winters, the co-founder and CEO of Verified Labs, placed great emphasis on upholding McQueen’s legacy. Winters highlighted the significance of preserving McQueen’s impact, stating, “Legacy is the ultimate focus.” Additionally, he expressed their strong commitment to ensuring McQueen’s enduring presence for generations to come, stating, “Our aim was to contribute to McQueen’s lasting legacy.”

Regarding the Steve McQueen NFT collection, it serves as a powerful testament to McQueen’s profound impact on American culture, an influence that has deeply inspired Kalish’s artistic endeavors. Reflecting on the connection, Kalish expressed, “Our shared passion for cars, motorcycles, family, and iconic American elements and experiences creates a significant overlap.”
