If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a real Lamborghini, but your budget looks more like, “1/64th dye-cast model,” have we got the story for you. YouTube titan MrBeast and street art collective MSCHF have teamed up again for a wildly popular Lamborghini holiday giveaway. For just $35 you’ll get a Lamborghini – but there’s a little bit of a catch.
MrBeast + MSCHF Giveaway a Real Lambo for $35 – Really!
You read that right. For $35 you can get a real Lamborghini Avendator. Maybe. The trick is, everyone buys a Lamborghini for $35 but most people will receive a 1/64th dye-cast model. One lucky person, however, will strike it rich – receiving a real, working Lamborghini Aventador worth $300,000. Four other lucky winners will receive pre-owned Lamborghini Gallardos, worth around $100K each.
There is a middle ground to be had though – several ultra-lucky winners will receive ride-on Lamborghini toys. Maybe it’s the kid in us, but that sounds like fun. There’s also a small herd of R/C Lamborghini toys for some winners.
It’s really the chance of a lifetime for Lamborghini lovers. While only 5 people get real cars and only one takes the big prize – the chance to buy your very own Lambo for $35 is hard to pass up. To see if you’re one of the lucky big winners, head over to Everybody Gets a Car and try your luck.
HighSnobiety shares, “MrBeast is no stranger to the, well, mischievous world of MSCHF.
In 2020, the duo released a mobile game called Finger on the App, which challenged players to hold a finger to the screen of their smartphone for as long as possible.
Ultimately, four people kept a finger in place for over 70 hours, a feat that won them each $20,000. MrBeast recreated a similar stunt with an actual Lamborghini in a recent viral video.”
MrBeast and Squid Game
MrBeast and MSCHF are known for their big drops and over-the-top contests. Recently, MrBeast made headlines for recreating the games from the hit Netflix series, Squid Game. It was all a perfect recreation, right down to the sights and sounds of the set in the Squid Game series. Of course, in MrBeast’s version, there was no killing.
The games hosted by MrBeast on the mock-up set were met with mixed reactions. The creator of Squid Game, Hwang Dong-Hyuk enjoyed it, but many thought it was a little uncomfortable given the strong social satire behind the series. But love it or hate it, it’s quickly become one of the mega-YouTuber’s most popular videos, racking up over 132M views in less than a week.
In MrBeast’s version, players compete in Squid Game contests for a grand prize of $456,000. MrBeast has over 83M subscribers and is known for being a philanthropist, a lot of his videos centering around random acts of kindness and enormous generosity. The Squid Game contest cost over $3.5 million to make, but it’s on track to become the YouTuber’s most watched video which means he will probably recoup the costs quickly.

MSCHF has also become famous for stunts that give away extraordinary prizes to ordinary people. MSCHF is a street art-level collective founded in 2016 by Gabriel Whaley. The group is known for drawing attention to social issues such as inexcusably high medical bills. Here are some of the group’s most fascinating drops:
- April 2020: The collective purchased a $30,000 Damien Hurst spot print. They cut out the spots and sold them as Severed Spots for $480 each, later selling the remaining paper full of holes for $261,400 and called it 88 Spots.
- Cuss Collar: In 2020, the group released a dog collar that purported to turn a dog’s bark into spoken curse words.
- September 2020: MSCHF released a series of paintings that were enlarged versions of real people’s medical bills. The paintings sold for nearly $80K and proceeds went towards helping people pay those bills.
- March 2021: The famous Satan Shoes. MSCHF collaborated with Lil Nas X to release a pair of Nike Air Max 97 sneakers with a bronze pentagram, an inverted cross and a drop of real human blood in their sole. Nike didn’t like being associated with Satanism and a legal battle ensued.
Other social commentaries that MSCHF has waded into include the Theranos scandal, along with selling a series of Andy Warhol copies alongside the original without knowing which is which.
MrBeast and MSCHF together know how to help people and make a statement. With the price of a possible buy-in on a real Lamborghini Aventador priced at just $35, who can resist?
