Paul Walker’s Iconic 1994 Supra From The Fast & Furious Is Going Up For Auction
| Last updated
The iconic 1994 Toyota Supra that Paul Walker drove in the original The Fast and Furious film and subsequent sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, is going up for auction.
The unmistakable orange vehicle with decals along the side has been brought out of the movie archives, dusted off and will look very spiffy when it goes to the highest bidder next month.
It will be one of the main acts at Barrett-Jackson's annual Las Vegas auction and it will no doubt fetch a high price.
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.
Barrett-Jackson describes all the trimmings to perfection.
"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."
Walker's character, Brian O'Connor drives the epic vehicle and eventually beats a Ferrari in a race.
At the end of the first film, O'Connor gifts it to his pal Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) to say thanks for everything he did.
There's no telling how much the vehicle will go for when it hits the auction lot in June, however the past might help dictate that.
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.
Keep in mind though, that was purely a stunt car and not the real deal. It also didn't come with all the fancy things like a factory turbocharged motor.
So, if you want a piece of movie history sitting in your garage you better be ready to spill some serious dough because this bad boy won't be going cheap.
