If there's one car that possibly got us hooked into the tuner car scene when we were younger, it's the orange Toyota Supra driven by the late Paul Walker in the first Fast and Furious movie.
While the more recent Fast movies may showcase newer cars on the big screen, the “10-second” Supra will always remain an iconic hero car for most. Over the weekend, one of the cars used in the original film sold for USD 550,000 or roughly PHP 26,730,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction.
While the Supra may wear the same Lamborghini Diablo Orange Pearl paint, together with the complete graphics and decals, that wasn't always the case. Following its role in the first Fast and Furious movie, the car was re-modified and played the role of Slap Jack's Supra in the sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious. The Supra would later be brought back to its previous (and arguably more iconic form) you see here.
The Supra's exterior looks to be in great condition and is faithful to the original vehicle. It wears the Bomex front bumper and side skirts, paired with a TRD-style hood. Then there's the 19-inch Racing Hart M5 wheels and large APR GT Wing.
While the exterior is immaculate, the same can't be said for the interior. It's missing the large Auto Meter gauges and instead has a set of Greddy gauges. The steering wheel is also different, missing the “NOS” buttons as used by Brian o' Conner in the movie. Under the hood, the Supra's 2JZ-GTE isn't modified either. It's all stock and is paired to a 4-speed automatic. Wait, what?
To clear things up, the Supra you see here isn't the “hero” car from the film. According to the auction house, this particular Supra was used for multiple interior and exterior shots in the first and second Fast and Furious Film. That said, this is likely one of the stunt cars built as a replica. Whether it's the one that blew out its roof during the truck scene, only the owner will know.
PHP 26.73 million can buy you a lot of things, including several supercars already. But if you had the chance, would you have spent it on a movie car like the new owner of this Fast and Furious Supra?
