Ali Walker, Chief Creative Officer at Asprey Studio, said the following: “We are proud to present the Asprey Bugatti Egg Collection, not only does this push the boundaries on a production level, but the generative art – coded by our strategic partner and Bitcoin experts Metagood – using the equation of the egg shape of the actual sculpture as an NFT in Bitcoin is a new form of expression and art itself. The NFT and the sculpture are linked by this equation.”

- Eggs number 1-100 will be between $20-50k.
- Eggs number 100-111 will be $200,000 upwards.
What is the Egg made up of?
The eggshell of the Royale Edition of the Asprey Bugatti Egg Collection is made from carbon fiber and formed into the perfect egg shape during a long and complex process.
Furthermore, a sterling silver diamond weave lattice encases the egg. And it is gently angled downwards to a curved base portraying movement and echoing Asprey’s heritage in jewelry and furniture. Fancy.
The surface of the Asprey Bugatti Bitcoin-based egg displays a “Dancing Elephant” motif, recreated in perfect detail from one of Rembrandt Bugatti’s original sculptures. It was this work of art that adorned the bonnet of the Bugatti Type 41 Royale, renowned as the most luxurious car ever created.
Images on the inside of the egg won’t be revealed until post-mint. Basically, the eggshell opens with a complex hinged Asprey diamond door to reveal a scene of the Chateau Saint Jean – the iconic home of Bugatti in Molsheim – in front of which is sterling silver stylized Bugatti Type 41 Royale Esders, removable should the owner wish.
