SOLD! The Toyota Supra From The First Fast And Furious Movie Auctioned Off For RM668k

Recently, this Toyota Supra stunt car which starred opposite Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious had gone up for sale at the Mecum Auctions’ 28th Original Spring Classic 2015 event and has now been confirmed to be sold for $185,000 (RM668,090).

A prominent highlight in the movie, the orange stunt car was featured in many of the movie’s climatic scenes, most notably the final drag race between Brian O’Conner’s Supra and Dominic Toretto’s Dodge Charger.

If you wanna relive a bit of nostalgia, this is the scene we were referring to:

Looking the part, the Supra was fitted with a Bomex body kit, APR wing, Dazz wheels wrapped in Yokohama tyres, Roadboy foglights, and Modern Image decal graphics. The interior also receives some modifications with a Sparco steering wheel and bright blue seats inside. However, the two NOS/Holley Performance nitrous oxide bottles in the trunk aren’t attached to anything so no power boost here.

Powering the stunt car is a 2JZ-GE 3.0-litre in-ine six-cylinder engine produces 220hp, paired to a five-speed manual transmission. That’s not a lot of grunt but for reliving memories, it’s more than enough.

Also being a stunt car, stronger suspension and a roll cage are fitted as well to ensure the car holds up during all the required stunt sequences.

Now, what other car from the Fast and Furious franchise would you like to own?

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
