Remember the Fast & Furious Toyota Supra for sale by Barrett-Jackson? It is sold and broke a new record: $ 550,000, or 460,000 euros. This makes her the most expensive Supra of all time, a record that will probably hold up for a long time to come.
She is legendary! The 1994 Supra, queen of the Fast & Furious saga, was offered for sale without reserve, but everyone knew that it would make a splash and that it could crack the richest collectors. This was inevitable, since this specific car appeared in the first two films of the popular series, “The Fast and the Furious” (2001) and “2 Fast 2 Furious” (2003) and it was driven by the late Paul Walker. himself. Unlike the identical Supra sold in 2015 for $ 185,000 which had a naturally aspirated engine and fake nitro cylinders, this one comes equipped with the 3.0-liter 2JZ-GTE twin-turbo inline-six. It may not have any further modifications, but the legendary engine is already developing 324 horsepower and 427 Nm. Unfortunately, contrary to what the movie suggested, power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic gearbox. , although the gear knob has been disguised to resemble that of a manual transmission.
What is 100% faithful is the exterior and interior design of the car. The body is painted “Candy Orange” with “Nuclear Gladiator” designs by Troy Lee Designs, as well as numerous sponsor stickers. The Bomex body kit includes the front bumper and side skirts, combined with the APR rear spoiler and 19-inch Hart M5 Racing wheels. Inside you’ll find everything you’ve seen in the movie, including the three-spoke racing steering wheel, blue upholstery on the bucket seats and door panels, plus additional gauges on the passenger side to indicate the pressure of the turbos and the nitro system.
A unique model
The Supra in question was built by Eddie Paul of The Shark Shop in El Segundo, California. She was heavily edited for the second movie where she appeared as “Slap Jack’s Supra,” but a bit later they brought her back to her original state. The new owner of this legendary car has also received full documentation and a certificate of authenticity so that he can prove that he is not driving a replica, but the real car from the movie.
Some may wonder who is capable of spending more than half a million dollars on a Supra, but remember that is not just any one. It is one of the most popular movie cars ever made. After all, who hasn’t watched the street race between Brian O’Conner’s Toyota Supra and Dominic Toretto’s Dodge Charger?
