American actor Paul Walker’s sudden death shocked the entire world. He may be gone but his fans around the world have lit the candle of his name in their hearts. There have been many fans around the globe who have always shown interest in the “Fast and Furious” franchise and now after the release of the seventh installment of the film, Most memorable car of Paul Walker is coming up for an auction.
According to the report published in The Hollywood Reporter, 93’ bright orange Toyota Supra which Paul Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner drove in “The Fast and The Furious” will be available for auction in coming time. The car, which was actually built to shoot the key scenes of the film, also appeared in the last scene of the seventh installment where Paul Walker’s character is saying his final adieu to his friend and brother Dominic Toretto, who was portrayed by Vin Diesel.
If one wants to get his hands on the Toyota Supra, Mecum Auctions plans to list the car at their next event in Indiana to be held in between May 12 and May 17. The current owner of the car is not yet relieved but the fraternity is expecting to fetch around $200,000 from Walker’s car.
The bright orange Supra sport is equipped with 220 horsepower, five-speed manual transmission, a heavy duty suspension and a pair of Holley Performance nitrous-oxide bottles. From the reports, it is also clear that the nitrous-oxide bottles are not connected to the main engine. In addition to the powerful engine and amazing paint job, the car is also very safe to drive.
