Wipe the drool from your chins, Fast and Furious Fans. Paul Walker’s orange 1993 Toyota Supra is heading to the Mecum Auction in Indianapolis May 12 – 17. This Supra’s appearance throughout The Fast and The Furious in 2001 gives it an estimated value of $150,000 – $200,000. The Fast and Furious movie franchise experienced 14 years of success filming high speed chases, unrealistic car stunts, gunfire, explosions and endless gear shifting.
Multiple bright orange cars like this were built for the Fast and Furious movie, but this particular car was used in the memorable final scene of the first movie. Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto) races his Dodge Charger against Paul Walker (Brian O’ Connor) and his Toyota Supra. In the scene the two have a near miss with an oncoming train, then Diesel crashes into a semi-truck, flipping his Charger over the Supra. Realistic? Not at all. Awesome? Yes. Watch the clip for yourself, and ignore the fact that it takes them over a minute and a half to drive a quarter mile.
The Fast and Furious Car
This Fast and Furious stunt car looks great on the outside, but those hoping to unleash their inner Paul Walker may be somewhat disappointed. The orange Supra has a naturally aspirated 2JZ-GE 3.0L/220 HP inline-6 engine and 5-speed manual transmission. A set of NOS bottles are included, but not connected to the engine. At least it looks fast, right?
This car is reinforced for stunt work with heavy-duty suspension, competitions seats and a full roll cage. The interior isn’t movie-ready, but the outside is. A Bomex body kit, Dazz alloy wheels and APR rear wing are all included. As expected from any ‘90s tuner car, there are stickers everywhere.
The Toyota Supra was a Japanese sports car built for the U.S. market. It was produced from 1978 – 2002 and it left a lasting impression on car enthusiasts everywhere. Toyota created the Supra by stretching out the Toyota Celica and adding a more powerful engine. The vehicle was first called the Celica Supra, but Toyota eventually dropped “Celica” as the Supra gained popularity. The Toyota Supra steadily became a faster car until production ended in 2002
Get Your Own
For those that don’t have $200,000 laying around, you may still be able to find a Toyota Supra for sale near you. It probably won’t be heavily modified for stunts or look good enough to appear on a Fast and Furious film, but why not modify one for yourself? The Toyota Supra is a great platform for car modifications on a budget, even if you are new to modifying.
Some believe the fast and furious series was belabored for far too long, but even in its most unrealistic moments, like jumping a car onto a boat or between two skyscrapers, it kept us entertained for over a decade.
