There are many cars that have been part of the successful series of films that make up the family ‘Fast & Furious’But perhaps many enthusiasts will stick with the first installment, be it Brian’s Mitsubishi Eclipse, Dom’s Mazda RX-7 or Dom’s fireproof Dodge Charger, Letty’s Nissan S14 or Jesse’s Volkswagen Jetta, among others. In this list we have not named a very special one that became one of the great protagonists of the film: Brian O’Conner’s Toyota Supra.
A unique opportunity
Dom and the others were in charge of fine-tuning the Japanese model to later give it to his friend O’Conner, starring in one of the most famous scenes of ‘The Fast and the Furious’, that is, the final race with the Charger of Toretto. When the film ends, it is Dominic who takes possession of the Supra and now a lucky collector will be able to do the same since this car has been auctioned in the event that Barrett-Jackson has held these last three days June 17, 18 and 19 in Las Vegas, United States. One of the most interesting bids of this event that has been closed with a price of $ 550,000, about 462.262 euros to the change that make it one of the most expensive Toyota Supras ever sold, only surpassed by cases such as the first Toyota GR Supra sold for more than 2 million dollars.
We are talking about a copy in very good condition that can boast of being the original car from the first film in the saga and is that the deceased Paul Walker drove it in some interior and exterior scenes. In addition, this same vehicle participated in ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’, the second installment of the famous saga of cars and action, this time with a different decoration and owner. Many will remember his presence in the illegal race that begins the film, with Slap Jack (Michael Ealy) at the wheel. However, after the filming of this second installment, the Toyota Supra recovered its initial condition, the best known and loved by the general public.
The Japanese model features a Candy Orange pearl finish paint of a Lamborghini Diablo with a figure known as “Nuclear Gladiator” On the side. The body kit includes a Bomex front bumper and side skirts, TRD-style hood, APR aluminum rear spoiler, and 19-inch five-spoke wheels. Inside there is a blue upholstery that covers the seats and door panels, as well as a Momo steering wheel, a touch screen and several clocks responsible for measuring pressures and temperatures.
Unlike Brian’s Supra, this specimen has its original, unmodified mechanics. We are talking about a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine –The 2JZ-GTE– that develops 325 horsepower and a maximum torque of 427 Nm, associated with a four-speed automatic gearbox. However, it sports a small-sized round shifter to look like a manual transmission. How could it be otherwise, all the energy is sent to the rear axle.
The sale of this iconic Supra includes extensive documentation about the car and a certificate of authenticity. It should also be remembered that in 2015, Mecum auctioned another Supra from ‘The Fast and the Furious’ for $ 185,000 – about 152,000 euros -, although it had an atmospheric block and a five-speed manual gearbox. This gives an idea of the dizzying amount that this Barrett-Jackson copy has reached compared to its brothers, whom it has far exceeded with a price rarely seen in a Supra.
