It may surprise you to find that the internet’s most popular Shiba Inu has been on automobiles in the past, including a real NASCAR racing vehicle in 2014. It had been roughly a year since the Doge internet meme had gained traction.
The meme included a Shiba Inu dog with text, which was largely in the form of an internal monologue in a sort of grammatically incorrect English. Before the meme’s Shiba Inu dog landed up on Josh Wise’s race car as part of a sponsorship agreement, Dogecoin was released in late 2013.
The meme’s structure is now quite simple, consisting of of two-word sentences with the first word nearly always being something like “so,” “such,” “much,” or “very.” Obviously, it’s a joke. There are no quote marks required.
In 2021, Dogecoin is more popular than ever, owing in part to a strong cryptocurrency market, but also to one Mr. Elon Reeve Musk. That is, indeed, his true middle name, and it does not sound entirely made up by an AI-based cyborg attempting to pass himself off as human. Musk, on the other hand, had a lot of fun with Dogecoin this year.
First, it became the first cryptocurrency to fund a lunar satellite mission scheduled for next year, and now Tesla is considering taking Dogecoin payments for their vehicles. Check out this Dogecoin-themed Ferrari F8 Tributo, which came straight from Reddit’s dedicated topic for bad vehicle modifications.
Unless Elon Musk is driving this automobile as a prank, it’s reasonable to assume that the owner is concerned about Dogecoin’s worth, or rather its popularity. We’ve never seen a Ferrari styled around Bitcoin or Ethereum, but what about Dogecoin? Yes, absolutely.
When it’s not actively selling anything, the F8 Tributo is a serious piece of machinery. It’s driven by a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 710 horsepower (720 PS) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque (the same as the 488 Pista).
If you keep it pointing straight, you’ll reach 62 mph (100 kph) in 2.9 seconds, on your way to a max speed of 211 mph (340 kph).
