Paul Walker’s Fast And Furious Car Sells For $550,000

The Toyota Supra driven by Paul Walker in The Fast and the Furious has been sold at auction for a little more than half a million bucks.

The iconic 1994 vehicle, which was also driven in the sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious went under the hammer over the weekend and it was understandably one of the most anticipated sales when the lot opened.

According to TMZ, a phone bidder made the winning $550,000 bid for Brian O'Connor's 10 second car.

Paul's younger brother Cody told the entertainment news site ahead of the auction that he reckons the actor would have found it hilarious that his Supra was going up for sale.

While the bidding certainly piqued his interest, Cody said he wouldn't be going in person to see people clamber over each other to take home the keys.

To get nice and technical, the Supra Supra MK IV has a 320 horsepower 3.0L 2JZ-GTE inline six engine and a four-speed automatic transmission.

Auctioneer Barrett-Jackson described all the vehicle's trimmings ahead of the sale, saying: "The car was built by Eddie Paul at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, CA, for the first movie and brought back and modified by the original builder for its role as 'Slap Jack's Supra' in the sequel.

"The Supra would later be returned to original form, with the resplendent Lamborghini Diablo Candy Orange pearl paint and famed Troy Lee-designed 'Nuclear Gladiator' motif along the side.

"To complete the look, the Supra features a Bomex front spoiler and side skirts, TRD-style hood, APR aluminum biplane rear wing, and 19-inch Dazz Motorsport Racing Hart M5 Tuner wheels."

At the end of the first film, O'Connor gifted the Supra to his pal Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) to say thanks for everything he did.

A stunt car from The Fast and the Furious that was also a 1994 Toyota Supra managed to sell for $185,000 at a previous auction.
