The Original Paul Walker’s Supra from Fast and Furious is For Sale
Buy Now The Original Paul Walker’s Car from Fast and Furious!
Who wouldn’t want to drive Paul Walker’s Supra from Fast and Furious movie? Now it is your chance, because the car is now up for sale!
I still can’t believe that he is gone. Nearly two years have passed since the death of the actor, Paul Walker.
He was famous for his role of Brian O’ Conner, a lead character in six of the seven Fast & Furious movies.
Unfortunately, the actor who was a huge car fanatic, passed away On November 30 after he and his buddy Roger Rodas left from an event for Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide for victims of Typhoon Haiyan in Rodas’s red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT.
Roger was driving the car which crashed into a concrete lamppost and two trees on Hercules Street.
Now everyone, with the help of a beautiful sendoff from the most recent film Furious 7, got to say thank you and goodbye to Paul Walker.
When we first saw Walker’s character back in 2001, he was driving a beautiful 1993 Toyota Supra.
Heavy duty suspension and a roll cage were added for filming, and as you can see, the interior isn’t very luxurious.
The exterior, however, is movie ready – with a Bomex body kit, APR rear wing and Dazz alloy wheels wrapped in Yokohama rubber.
Now, the car built by Eddie Paul at The Shark Shop, is being sold by Mecum Actions. Paul Walker made the car famous and it is still remembered for the final race between O’ Conner and Vin Diesel’s character, Dom Toretto.
The now famous car is a 5 speed orange Supra, that is totally ticked out, especially now that it’s such a rare model.
With time, the Supra has become a very rare model, and anyone interested in purchasing one will pay some extra cash over the price of a new Supra when it was being sold in dealerships.
Under the hood lies a naturally aspirated, 220-hp 2JZ-GE 3-liter inline 6 engine meshed to a 5-speed manual transmission. The car does feature a pair of Holley Performance nitrous-oxide bottles, though, but they aren’t connected.
The car is expecting to sell for anywhere between $150,000 and $200,000 so if you got any spare cash, it would be nice to buy it.
Paul Walker’s car from Fast and Furious is officially hitting the action block in Indianapolis starting on May 12th and ending on 17th.
If you are looking on purchasing the car take into consideration that is in great condition and is a timeless relic for both car and movie lovers.
The fame of the vehicle is expected to take its course when many people will probably be interested in owning the car, especially with online bids being allowed.
The franchise has been making famous a lot of cars since 2001 when the first movie aired, but not many have the fame of Paul’s Supra.
Another thing you should consider is that this particular Supra is one of a few built for the movie and the one used in that scene where Paul and Diesel race, jumping across railroad tracks before Vin’s Dodge Charger crashes into a semi-truck.
And it won’t hit the quarter mile in 10 seconds like they showed in the movie!
Just think about that while you wait to bid on the car. Good luck!
