Paul Walker's 1994 Supra From The Fast & Furious Is Heading To Auction

·2-min read

A car driven by late actor Paul Walker in the first instalment of the Fast and Furious film franchise is heading to auction in Las Vegas this month.

The iconic 1994 Toyota Supra appeared in the 2001 film The Fast and the Furious as well as 2003's 2 Fast 2 Furious.

The orange vehicle is one of the headlining lots at auction house Barrett-Jackson's annual auction, taking place June 17-19 in Sin City, and it will no doubt fetch a high price.

The neon orange sports car is one of the franchise's most iconic vehicles, due in no small part to its role in one of the most famous scenes from the original Fast and the Furious.

In the sequence, Walker's Brian takes Vin Diesel's Dom out for a drive in the freshly restored Supra and ends up smoking a Ferrari in a race after its owner brags about its "more than you can afford, pal" price tag.

But the car's role in the franchise wouldn't stop there, as it was repurposed (and repainted) by the studio for use as Slap Jack's gold 1993 Supra in the film's sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious.

This specific example was used for both interior and exterior shots during the filming of the first entry in the long-running series.

Although it was given a makeover for the second movie, it's since been returned to its "original" glory. This includes a Bomex front spoiler, TRD-style hood, side skirts, APR aluminum biplane rear wing and a set of 19-inch Dazz Motorsport Racing Hart M5 Tuner wheels, according to the auction house.

Most importantly of all, though, it's finished in Lamborghini Diablo Candy Orange pearl paint and features the famous Troy Lee-designed "Nuclear Gladiator" decal along the side.

Under the hood, you'll find twin-turbo 2JZ-GTE 3.0-liter inline-6 that sends power to the rear axle via a 4-speed automatic transmission.

A stunt car from The Fast and the Furious that was also a 1994 Toyota Supra managed to sell for $185,000 at a previous auction. The car will be up for sale with no reserve.
