An icon on so many levels.
It's not every day something like this comes up for auction. In fact, the last time it did was back in 2015. If you don't make your move this time, chances are it'll be another multi-year wait (if ever). Set to cross the auction stage the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas event from June 17-19 is the one and only 1994 Toyota Supra driven by the late Paul Walker in 2001's "The Fast and the Furious".
According to the listing, this car was used for several interior and exterior shots during the filming of the original as well as the first sequel released in 2003.
Built by Eddie Paul at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, California and modified again for "2 Fast 2 Furious," it was returned to its original form from the first film. Finished in Lamborghini Diablo Candy Orange pearl paint with the "Nuclear Gladiator" running along its side, it also has a body kit that includes a Bomex front spoiler and side skirts, TRD-style hood, APR aluminum biplane rear wing, and 19-inch Dazz Motorsport Racing five-spoke wheels.
However, it remains stock under the hood, meaning the 2JZ-GTE 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with 320 horsepower and 315 lb-ft of torque. It's paired to a four-speed automatic that routes power to the rear wheels. Unfortunately, the auction house has not disclosed an estimated value and it's being offered with no reserve.
Now, it's important to note the aforementioned "Fast and Furious" Supra sold seven years ago and this car are not the same vehicle. Producers had more than one filming model built by Paul, and the other Supra was supposedly the one featured in the final racing scene between Dom and Brian. Also, it wasn't turbocharged but did have a five-speed manual, but still ended up selling for $185,000.
This second Supra comes with extensive documentation such as a certificate of authenticity. Given its special place in the long-running franchise and the direct connection to Walker, we wouldn't be surprised to see this easily surpass the $200,000 mark. Happy bidding.
