Paul Walker's Famed 1993 Toyota Supra Goes to Auction
The 1993 bright orange Toyota Supra driven by late actor and racing enthusiast Paul Walker in the original The Fast & The Furious (2001) film is up for grabs. It's arguably the most famous of the many souped-up muscle cars driven in the multi-billion-dollar film franchise that also stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Jason Statham.
Several nearly identical cars were built for the film's multiple scenes, but the one on the auction block is the ride that appears in the final dramatic race that features Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, and Diesel's character, Dominic Toretto, nearly getting taken out by an oncoming train.
Officials with the famed auction house Meccum expect the car to drive up a selling price of $150,000 to $200,000. But the winning bidder should take note - The car won't perform on real-world streets the same way it performs in the film. Its 2JZ-GE 3.0L/220 HP inline-6 engine is the non-turbo model and that pair of Holley Performance nitrous oxide bottles that comes with the car are film props - not the real deal.
The stunt car, and the massive bragging rights that come with it, will go to the highest bidder at Mecum Auctions Indy 2015 event between May 12-17 in Indianapolis. Will you attend or place a bid? Post your pics and thoughts on the E3 Spark Plugs Facebook Fan Page.
