Paul Walker's 'The Fast and the Furious' Ten Second Supra Heads to Auction
After seven Fast and Furious installments, one can't possibly recount every lavish and modernized car that's drifted on and off the big screen-however, fans will eternally reminisce Brian Conner's 1993 bright orange Toyota Supra, which is heading to auction.
The ending scene of the 2001 hit film, The Fast and the Furious, takes viewers on a wild, high-speed journey with the notorious Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) racing a black Dodge Charger and undercover cop-turned-racer, Brian Conner (Paul Walker) running a Supra.
Mecum Auctions will auction off one of Brian Conner's many Supras--filming a movie that entails racing cars, explosive crashes and engine swaps, demands several car doubles. The car listing ensures prospective buyers that the Supra for sale is the identical stunt car used during Toretto and Conner's train race in the crucial ending scene. Walker, respected actor and car enthusiast passed away eerily enough from a fierce car crash on November 30, 2013. The late actor once said "if one day the speed kills me, do not cry because I was smiling."
The 1993 vehicle is furnished with an orange exterior, 5-speed manual transmission, roll cage, twin Holley Performance nitrous oxide bottles and a 2JZ-GE 3.0L/220 HP inline-6 engine, notes Entertainment Weekly. Not to mention, Paul Walker once manned the vehicle that one fortunate bidder will soon own, for a steep price of about $150,000 to $200,000.
Brian Conner's ten-second car will be sold to the highest bidder at the Mecum Auction Indy 2015 event in Indianapolis between May 12 and 17, reports MTV news. Hopefully the new titleholder will continue with Toretto's legacy to live life one quarter mile at a time.
Of all the cars that were raced, crashed and scorched over the 14 year movie franchise, the Supra will remain unforgettable.
