A real 1994 Toyota Supra from “The Fast and the Furious” will cross the block at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming auction in Las Vegas, scheduled for June 17-19.
This car was driven by the late Paul Walker in the original film “Fast and Furious” and was listed for “multiple indoor and outdoor shots during the filming”. It was then repurposed as the car for the character Slap Jack for the sequel “2 Fast 2 Furious,” the listing says.
Many leftover cars from “The Fast and the Furious” were reused for “2 Fast 2 Furious”, as told by “Fast and Furious” technical advisor Craig Lieberman, who owned the Supra that formed the basis for the movie car . For example, Johnny Trans black Honda S2000 from the first film and Suki’s pink S2000 from the sequel are the same car.

Not every movie car looks as beautiful in real life as the on-screen version, but this Supra sports the Lamborghini Diablo Candy Orange Pearl paint job and the “Nuclear Gladiator” graphics seen in the movie. It also has the full set of visual modifications, including a Bomex front spoiler and side skirts, a TRD-style hood, an APR aluminum double-decker rear wing, and 19-inch Dazz Motorsport Racing Hart M5 tuner wheels.
This Supra is also a factory turbo car that carries the 2JZ-GTE with 3.0-liter in-line 6 with twin turbo charging, albeit with a 4-speed automatic transmission instead of a manual gearbox. This is not uncommon with movie cars, as automatics are easier to use and a car does not have to be mechanically identical to what is displayed on the screen.
The orange Supra is an icon thanks to its leading role in the film, which started a nine-part franchise (with more reportedly to follow). Barrett-Jackson did not list a pre-auction estimate, but another authentic “Fast and Furious” Supra sold for $ 185,000 at auction in 2015.
