Fast & Furious Stunt Cars Are Surprisingly Affordable

Auction / 10 Comments

Fast & Furious fanatics may want to check this auction out.

Last year, the Fast & Furious Live tour opened in arenas across Europe, putting fans closer to the action with live recreations of the film's most memorable stunts. The spectacular show was originally going to come to America this year, but the show's poor reception and, presumably, low ticket sales led to the tour being abruptly canceled last summer. Now that the company has entered administration, many of the stunt cars from the show are being sold in an online auction that finishes at the end of this month.

While many of the cars driven in the show were replicas, a few were original cars used in the films. These include the custom "ramp car" from Fast & Furious 6, which has a Chevrolet LS V8 engine, three-speed automatic gearbox, and four-wheel steering. It was used in the film's numerous chase scenes to flip over cop cars and has a starting bid of £10,000 (around $12,300).

Also up for grabs is the Nissan 350Z from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, which is powered by a 6.2-liter V8, a six-speed sequential gearbox, adjustable suspension, and a modified engine. Bids start at £20,000 (around $26,000).

Last but not least is a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 used in the arctic climax of Fate of the Furious. It's powered by a Jaguar-sourced V6 that sends power through a Porsche Boxster transaxle gearbox and also has a modified interior. It also has an opening bid of £20,000.

The auction also includes a plethora of replica cars built for the show by the legendary Dennis McCarthy, who built every Fast & Furious car since the third movie in 2006. These include a replica of Dom's Ice Charger from Fate of the Furious and Paul Walker's Toyota Supra Targa, as well as a Mazda RX-7, Honda S2000, and Nissan Skyline GT-R covered in LED lights. Unfortunately, the modifications made to these cars means that none of them are road legal. Pity.
