8th October, 2022, Shelby American Inc. has announced Virtua as their official metaverse partner. Their step into the web3 space will provide Shelby fans a new dimension of entertainment, a new experience!
In 1962, Shelby, a legendary former race car driver, created Shelby American, a new company to build his car in California. Equipped with the Ford 260 and later the 289 cubic-inch engines, the Cobra proved to be a success for Ford dealers and on racetracks worldwide. The Cobras dominated Corvettes in North America, winning races coast to coast. Car and performance vehicle enthusiasts are no alien to the grandeur of Shelby American.
It’s no news that Big Immersive a.k.a Virtua Engine Room has worked with some of the most popular international IPs such as GodFather, Dynamite Entertainment, Legendary, Godzilla vs Kong and Lost in Space to name a few.
