An interesting post about Malaysia.
Another unit of the most famous Toyota Supra in the world; the one that sparked over two decades of Japanese tuner car madness since it appeared in the first ever The Fast and the Furious movie over 20 years ago, is up for auction.
This is unlikely to be the one driven by Paul Walker in the final scene as that one came with a much more race-oriented cabin. Our best guess is that this is the one Paul Walker jumped out of, to rescue Vince towards the end of the movie.
Here’s a brief history throughout all the generations of Toyota Supra!
Some of you may not know but this is also the Supra that reappeared in 2 Fast 2 Furious released two years later.
Here’s everything you need to know about the latest A90 Toyota Supra!
Labelled as Lot 744 in the upcoming Barrett-Jackson auction happening between the 17th till the 19th of June, the Supra is accompanied by extensive documentation and a Certificate of Authenticity but that’s not all.
Despite having an engine bay that looks almost completely standard, the cabin is decked out with all the meters and gauges that a Supra owner then would’ve listed on a wishlist.
This Supra is so powerful it destroyed its own tyres during a dyno run!
Ahead of the driver, on the A-pillar, is an exhaust temperature gauge that was a common sight in turbocharged cars of that time.
There’s also a boost meter, a water temperature gauge and oil pressure gauge ahead of the front passenger but the seats do look a little tacky in this era with that black and blue combo, don’t you think?
Watch us race the new Toyota Supra against the BMW M2 Competition here!
And what most of you would also be surprised to know that this unit came with a 4-speed automatic transmission instead; probably for the scenes that require proper acting – if there was such thing in that franchise.
As for the figures, no reserve price was stated but considering another authentic and identical unit (the manual one) sold for nearly USD $200,000 at an auction in 2015, this one shouldn’t be far off.
How much would you pay for it?
