‘Fast & Furious’ Toyota Supra Sells for Record-Breaking A$731,000

Star of not one but two “Fast & Furious” films, this 1994 Toyota Supra car went under the hammer for a record $731,000.

The infamous car shattered the previous record for a non-charity sale Toyota Supra at the Las Vegas Auction by Barret-Jackson.

Driven by the late Paul Walker, the Supra was the hero car for the first movie, with the film ending with Brian (Paul Walker) giving the keys to Dominic (Vin Diesel), claiming to still owe him a 10-second car.

The automobile was created for the first film by Eddie Paul at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, CA, and then brought back and modified by the same builder for the sequel’s role as ‘Slap Jack’s Supra’.

The Supra was then restored to its original state, complete with Lamborghini Diablo Candy Orange pearl paint and the famous Troy Lee-designed ‘Nuclear Gladiator’ symbol on the side.

A Bomex front spoiler and side skirts, TRD-style hood, APR aluminium biplane rear wing, and 19-inch Dazz Motorsport Racing Hart M5 Tuner wheels complete the appearance.

The 2JZ-GTE 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine is paired to a 4-speed automatic transmission in this factory turbo vehicle.

Despite the eye-watering sum, it was only the fifth most expensive car to be sold during the auction with a 2015 McLaren P1 ($2 million), 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster ($1.4 million), 2019 Ford GT ($1.36 million) and a 965 AC Cobra 289 Roadster CSX 2439 ($1.2 million) all going for impressive sums.
