Your chance to own a Fast & Furious Supra actually driven by Paul Walker on screen

Why is the Mark IV Toyota Supra still such a desirable automotive icon? This bright-orange Supra used in a little-known film called "The Fast and the Furious" is at least partly to blame.

Although copied the world over, now is your chance to own a genuine, film-used Fast & Furious Supra that was actually driven by Paul Walker.

This particular example is said to have been used “for multiple interior and exterior shots” during the filming of the first two "Fast & Furious" films.

The exterior and interior features a number of period modifications, though the 2JZ-GTE engine appears to be mostly stock and is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.

The Toyota Supra is set to go across the block at Barrett-Jackson's 2021 Las Vegas auction, June 17-19, without reserve. What do you think the final selling price will be? Will it sell for a steal, or will this be another record like the $3.4 million authentic Bullitt Mustang?

Guaranteed to be the most overpriced example of an already rampantly-overpriced car.

But it's an automatic with the lift-off top.

It is saveable!  There is no bling under the hood...  Interesting how the picture shows a shift knob and boot.

And BTW, it means nothing to me that this is from F&F.  No value added.  indecision

I wonder if the extra gauges actually work?  No need for them to in the movies for static shots.

A number two example is currently valued at $95,000; minus 25% for the auto, and that comes out to around $71,250.

Naturally, with rise in demand for Mk IVs, plus the value some might add on for its film legacy, and I wouldn't be surprised if this sells for more than number one money–$134,000.

Also worth noting, three Mk IVs sold within the last two years over on Bring a Trailer for well over $100,000. Of course, those were all "low mileage" examples.

This is a six-figure sale. Not sure of the first digit, however.

Where's the Flux Capacitor?  It must have one to be able to run a 10 second quarter mile in 3.5 minutes... 

In all seriousness, I wouldn't be surprised to see it bring over a mil...  just because of the provenance.  Many of the younger folks view Paul Walker much like us old farts view Steve McQueen.  People pay a LOT of money for famous cars, and this is without doubt Famous.  Does that make it F & F & F?  cheeky

How many of these cars were there ?  most movies need back-ups or "crash dummies"

One old prop guy told me about building a corvette out of cardboard to push off a cliff and explode , because the original corvette they pushed off did not  dive off correctly and did not explode !

I'm sure it will be great for the seller who hasn't even had the decency to change the factory original brake fluid.  It's just another well-thrashed Hollywood heap, IMHO.

As a side note, I just ran across a few eBay pages featuring original He-Man Slime in sealed containers for around $200.  Save your money, guys.

I have a love/hate with F&F. However since I drove a yota pu, of course I'd be brand loyal and fall in love with the MKIV Supra. Videos and movies such as Getaway in Stockholm 2, and and Redline video series, I always thought I'd get one as my old man life-crisis car. That's apparently never happening. Still think it's a gorgeous car. Never ridden in one.

Thanks F&F for making this car unobtainium. I'm probably better off, since I wouldn't plan to do high-speed highway 70mph roll races.

Based on the few ex-movie cars I've touched, that thing will be a total roach.

They only need to look good on camera, moving, from 20' away. 

It's going through Barrett-Jackson so you won't be able to touch, crawl under, start or get in before you put your paddle up.

Auction listing doesn't specify that it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. No CofA, no value in it being an ex anything, it's just a story at that point. It may not even have a title.

Bid accordingly and don't be surprised if it's a parts car.

My chance to own?  Did I win megamillions?  I have no chance to own this.  But my chance to own it also matches my desire to own it, so I'm in luck.

FWIW, the fourth-gen Supra is as good as you'd hope. It's fast, it's comfortable, it still looks good.  And then there's that engine. 

We've had a few pass through here. Always a pleasure to drive.

That depends, does anyone recognise Vajingo when he's walking down the street?

Also, need a C of A for the ass sweat.

That is going to sell for more than any automatic, lift-top, Supra has ever sold for laugh

But we shouldnt let this distract us from the fact that Hector is going to be running three Honda civics with spoon engines, and on top of that, he just went into Harry’s and bought three t66 turbos with nos, and a motec system exhaust.

In case anyone missed it, the Supra sold for $550,000.

Yes, that's quite a lot of money, but somehow it's not as much as I expected it to sell for. Well bought?

I think it might be up there with the Bullitt Mustang--sold for $3.4m. It's the Hollywood car that, more or less, defines a genre.

I think your comparison is on target, but the F&F car is much 'earlier' in its history by comparison to the Bullitt car.  The future is never certain, but I'd bet the buyer will do better than get their money back if they keep it for a while.

Just takes two collectors that really want it.  I was watching Tevarish last night and I had no idea of the cult following the FF cars still have and the prices they are now getting.    I also learned that a Tach I have in one of my cars is the exact one used in the FF cars making it kind of valuable?

Yeah FF might seem stupid to us, but there's a lot of people that maybe don't treat them as documentaries or anything but also don't yell at the screen the entire time.

I just watched the first one on HBO or something the other day.

Man, yeah, there's some really stupid things in it, as far as 'car' stuff, but it's a fun movie.

After that...

Interested in seeing how much this goes for

I couldn't make it past the part where generic character A is driving a car on a gentle curving course defined by about six SCCA regions' worth of new cones placed every three feet.  A course that he'd apparently set up himself.
