The Fast and the Furious 1 started it all, it was the beginning of a car culture movie that would span an 8 movie franchise to feed the hungry gear head kids that want something they can relate to other than gone in 6 seconds.
And yes, we all remember that first need for speed underground 1 game that was inspired by the Fast & Furious movie.
Now however, you have the chance to own a piece of history; something every little boy in us can relate to. The car late Paul Walker drove in the first movie, the orange 1993 Toyota Supra packaged with a Bomex wide body kit, San Diego’s Modern Image graphics, an APR spoiler, bucket seats, prep nitrous bottles, an uprated heavy duty suspension and a roll cage.
The man responsible for tuning this Supra was Eddie Paul – movie prop specialists from the Shark Shop in El Segundo, California. The 1993 Supra is equipped with a 2jZ engine that puts out 230 hp because it doesn’t have a turbo and benefits from the straight six 3.0 liter naturally aspirated power only. So much for smoking a Ferrari.
Where might one get the 1993 Toyota Supra that Brian O’connor drove? head on to the Mecum auction house which will run in May 12 to 17th in Indianapolis, bring around $150,000 to $200,000 if you want to own that historic supra everyone wants.
