The Car Paul Walker Drove in the First Two 'Fast & Furious' Movies Is Now for Sale
Much of the fourth-generation Toyota Supra's popularity can be traced back to its starring role in the original Fast & Furious movie, where it was driven by main character Brian O'Connor, played by the late Paul Walker. The car spawned a generation of enthusiasts, and its importance can't be understated. This one, set to be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson in June 2021, played starring roles in both the first and second Fast films. Movie fans, this is your chance to own a piece of history.
According to Barrett-Jackson's listing, this Supra, an original twin-turbo model, was driven by Paul Walker on-screen for multiple interior and exterior shots throughout 2001's The Fast & The Furious. It was then taken back by the studio and modified to play the role of the Supra driven by supporting character Slap Jack (played by Michael Ealy) throughout 2003's 2Fast 2Furious. Later on, the car would be restored to its prior state, getting back its Lamborghini Diablo-sourced paint, "Nuclear Gladiator" livery, correct Dazz Motorsport Racing wheels, TRD-style hood, and aluminum rear wing.
Judging by the photos, the car looks to be in wonderful condition, with undamaged body panels and a complete interior (unlike most movie cars, which come up for sale battered and beaten to within an inch of their lives post-production). Under the hood sits an unmodified, factory twin-turbo 2JZ-GTE sending power to the rear wheels via the stock four-speed automatic transmission.
Barrett-Jackson doesn't list an estimated sale price, but does say the car will be offered without a reserve during its June 17-19 event in Las Vegas. The last original Fast Supra we saw pop up for sale sold at auction back in 2015 for $185,000, but that was a non-turbo-powered stunt car. We suspect this one, with its extra role in the second movie and factory turbocharged motor, will go for a bit more.
