It sold for a staggering $550,000.
One of the star cars at the 2021 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction was undoubtedly the 1994 Toyota Supra driven by the late Paul Walker in the 2001 movie 'The Fast and the Furious.' One of the most iconic movie cars of all time, the Supra being auctioned off was used for interior and exterior shots in the first two Fast & Furious movies but it wasn't used for any of the racing scenes. Finished in distinctive Candy Orange pearl paint from a Lamborghini Diablo, the iconic Supra is fitted with a body kit featuring a custom front spoiler and side skirts that made it stand out in the hit films.
Given that the popularity of Fast & Furious has exploded since the first film in the franchise was released 20 years ago and 'Fast 9' is racing into US theaters this month, we were expecting the famous Supra to sell for big bucks, but it surpassed all expectations.
At the auction, Paul Walker's Toyota Supra sold for a staggering $550,000, setting a new auction record. To put that into context, that's nearly three times more than another Supra used in 'The Fast and the Furious,' which sold for $185,000 at an auction back in 2005.
This wasn't the only record set at the 2021 Barrett Jackson Las Vegas auction, either. A 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II and custom 1981 Mercedes-Benz 380SL also sold for record sums, selling for $93,500 and $84,700, respectively, while a McLaren P1 owned by former DJ and record producer Deadmau5 sold for a record $1,567,500.
Other cars that set new records at the auction included a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL ($1,045,000), a re-creation of the Ecto-1 from 'Ghostbusters' ($220,000), and a 1960 Cadillac Coupe de Ville Custom Hardtop ($275,000).
Another standout was a one-off Ford Bronco Badlands Raiders Edition featuring a Las Vegas Raiders livery and riveted steel plates. Built by Maxlider Brothers Customs, the one-off Bronco sold for $275,000, which will be donated to the Las Vegas-based Grant a Gift Autism Foundation and the Raiders Foundation. The second charity car was a 2020 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Hertz/Hendrick Motorsports Edition. The first of 24 cars built to commemorate the #24 Hendrick Motorsports ZL1 Camaro race car driven by NASCAR Cup Series driver William Byron, it sold for $250,000, which will benefit the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation.
