This Toyota Supra Wishes It Was From Fast & Furious

Design / Comments

This replica is spot on.

Paul Walker famously asks the driver of a Ferrari parked next to him at the stoplights "what's the retail on one of those?" in the cult classic movie Fast And The Furious. But who could have expected that the obnoxious Orange Toyota Supra he was driving would end up being worth more than the Ferrari in question? Yes, the 1993 Toyota Supra being driven in the movie is an absolute icon and sold for $185,000 back in 2015. The car, sold by Mecum Auctions, is powered by a non-turbocharged inline-six engine and features goodies such as upgraded stunt suspension and roll cage.

For those who want to relive the glory days of Brian and Dom, but don't have hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend, a replica model recently came up for sale at a more reasonable price of £29,995, or around $38k at today's rates (but has subsequently been sold).

This example is a carbon copy of the original car and lives in the UK. The car features all the same mods, especially on the appearance side of things. According to Platinum Car Sales, where the car was listed for sale, the description mentions that the build took over a year to complete. The car is finished off in the same Lamborghini Diablo Candy Pearl Orange Metallic. The famous decals are all present and include the winged warrior pointing towards the horizon, as well as all the sponsor decals which include brands such as Nos and Stillen. The body kit comes courtesy of Bomex.

The rear wing is as massive as we can remember it, and the car rolls on the same set of five-spoke silver wheels. The build even features California license plates. Now that's what we call detail.

The interior on the other hand is less impressive: it features reupholstered seats that have been finished off in orange and white. The silver steering wheel is period correct but looks ridiculous. Behind the seats, there's a set of Nos canisters on display, but we doubt that they're functional.

Unlike the new Supra which is set to receive a healthy power bump that will see it share power outputs with the next M3 and M4, the Fast and Furious replica gets powered by a lowly naturally-aspirated inline six engine that produces a pitiful 223 horsepower. At least its got a manual. It might still be slightly nauseating to look at, but as with the famous Eleanor Mustang, this style is set to live on forever.
