Paul Walker’s ‘Fast and Furious’ Car Sold for $550K at AuctionJune 23, 2021
The classic Toyota Supra, previously used by the late Brian O’Conner depicter in 2003’s movie ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’, has been sold under the hammer for $550,000.
AceShowbiz -The Toyota Supra that the late Paul Walker drove in “The Fast and the Furious” has been sold at auction for $550,000 (£395,000).
The 1994 car, which featured in 2003 movie “2 Fast 2 Furious“, features “perhaps the most renowned engine to ever come from Japan” – the 2JZ-GTE – a description released ahead of the auction read.
While the winning bidder has chosen to remain anonymous, the final bid was made via the phone.
The sale is a big step up from the last auction of a Fast and the Furious car – an authentic Supra which was sold for $185,000 (£133,000) back in 2015.
Meanwhile, the movie franchise is expected to conclude with the upcoming tenth installment.
Cardi B will be reprising her “F9” role for the upcoming franchise finale, Vin Diesel has confirmed.
The “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker, who made her movie debut in Jennifer Lopez‘s “Hustlers” in 2019, stars as Leysa in the high-octane thriller, and her co-star Vin told Entertainment Tonight that she’ll be back for another round in the franchise’s final film.
“We are very much excited to evolve her character and to expand it to the finale,” he said. “She made it just in time. She came in Fast 9 just in time.”
“F9” director Justin Lin also praised the rapper for the way she integrated herself into the cast, many of whom have acted alongside each other since the first film back in 2001.
“I love Cardi, you know? I mean, it’s amazing she showed up and within a minute she’s part of the family, right?” he smiled. “And I love how when I got together with her, her and Vin were talking about the character because she’s actually really embedded into the overall universe, she’s been around for a long time and this is just the first time we are seeing her, so I’m really excited to explore that character of her.”
Cardi recently said she jumped at the chance to star in the film after being contacted by Vin, adding, “I’m like, ‘It’s freakin’ Fast & Furious! Get me there, put me on a plane!’ I like the fact that I’m representing such a powerful, strong woman. She’s just that b**ch…!”
“Fast and Furious 9” begins hitting cinemas from 24 June.
