Paul Walkers Fast And Furious Supra Is Up For Auction Again @ Top Speed

Another Paul Walker Fast and Furious Stunt Car Is Up Sale

According to the auctioneer, this Supra was used for “many interior and exterior scenes throughout filming.” This was further proved with “rich documentation” and a certificate of authenticity. Eddie Paul created the car at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, California. The same Supra was changed after the first film became Slap Jack’s car in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Technical advisor Craig Lieberman, who owned the Supra that served as the foundation for the movie car, has confirmed this.

It was eventually restored to its original shape, with the magnificent Lamborghini Diablo Candy Orange pearl paint and the iconic Troy Lee-designed’ Nuclear Gladiator’ decal along the side. These are details that any kid growing up in the early 2000’s will be familiar with.

Coming to the specs, this Supra is a factory turbo car, with the 2JZ-GTE twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six mated to a 4-speed automatic. It made around 320 horses.
The car also got several cosmetic upgrades. They include a Bomex front spoiler and side skirts, an APR aluminum biplane rear wing, a TRD-style hood, and 19-inch Dazz Motorsport Racing Hart M5 Tuner wheels.

Since its appearance in the film, the orange Supra has become somewhat of a sensation amongst enthusiasts, with many trying to replicate the look. It is one of the most recognizable cars in the film series and inspired an entire generation. One could blame that for the current price hike in Supras.
