Paul Walker's 'The Fast And The Furious' Car Is Up For Auction, But It's Sentimental Value Alone Is Priceless
To say Paul Walker's death was felt by many is an understatement. After his tragic and fatal car accident in November 2013, his family, friends and fans from around the world were heartbroken, a feeling that carried even more weight when they realized Furious 7 would be the last time he would be seen on the big screen. Now, however, you have a chance to hang on to piece of him, as well as a piece of movie-making history: According to Entertainment Weekly, one of Paul Walker's The Fast and the Furious cars is up for auction.
The franchise has featured a truckload of vehicular eye candy, and Walker has driven many of them. hough, this particular model is the 1993 Toyota Supra. While there were a number of the same vehicle used in filming the first installment, The Fast and the Furious, the listing on Mecum Auctions notes that this particular car is the one Walker drove during the film's final scene.
At the end of The Fast and the Furious, Walker and Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) are racing to cross the railroad tracks before the train flattens them into roadkill. Obviously they survived, otherwise there wouldn't have been six other films that followed — but it was a thrilling moment in the franchise's history.
Furious 7 may have sped past $1 billion at the box office and become the highest-grossing film of the franchise, but The Fast and the Furious remains one of the more beloved installments. While this Supra is probably unable to cover a quarter-mile in 10 seconds, like Walker did in the movie, it carries a lot of emotional weight. The item is expected to go for anywhere between $150,000 to $200,000. So, if you happen to have been saving that chunk of change for a rainy day, this might be the time to splurge.
