The ‘Stunt 1’ Supra from The Fleet and the Mad, which turned into as soon as one among only two vehicles driven by Paul Walker, went for over half of 1,000,000 greenbacks at a Barrett-Jackson public sale
The principle sale of a most considerable automotive from The Fleet and the Mad in years fervent a suitably substantial figure. A Toyota Supra, one among only two driven by Paul Walker during production, went beneath the hammer by Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas for an peep-watering $550,000. That’s factual shy of £400,000 at recent replace rates.
There turned into as soon as a mountainous ask imprint over how grand it is going to sell for. One of many nine Supras old for the film went for $185,000, nevertheless that turned into as soon as six years previously, and it hadn’t been driven by Walker. As it occurs, Fleet & Mad’ technical consultant Craig Lieberman sagely predicted the Barrett-Jackson automotive would dash for on the least $550okay.
He outlined in a YouTube video that this turned into as soon as designated as ‘Stunt 1’ during filming. It turned into as soon as described as the “2d-only” of the nine vehicles, bettered only by ‘Hero 1’ which turned into as soon as old for all of the shut-ups. The latter instance turned into as soon as originally Lieberman’s possess, at uncover owned by a Dutch collector who it seems has no plans of selling up. Whether or no longer or no longer the $550okay end result of this public sale will tempt him, we are in a position to only speculate.
Stunt 1 went on to be heavily altered for the filming of 2 Fleet 2 Mad as Slap Jack’s ‘Hero 2’ automotive, and after a spell in storage, it turned into as soon as old in 2006’s ‘Grandma’s Boy’. Few appear to understand what the automotive turned into as soon as as much as after that, nevertheless at some level, it turned into as soon as brought again to its customary F&F spec with an inexpensive stage of accuracy.
It’s twin-turbo A80 Supra with an computerized gearbox, successfully making it the reverse of the stunt automotive supplied in 2015, which turned into as soon as a naturally-aspirated manual. Eddie Paul at The Shark Store in El Segundo turned into as soon as guilty for every the distinctive F&F produce and the 2 Fleet 2 Mad remodel.
Now, the Candy Orange pearlescent paintwork (borrowed from the Lamborghini Diablo palette) is recent and ultimate, along with the Troy Lee ‘Nuclear Gladiator’ artwork, 19-dash Dazz Motorsport wheels, TRD bonnet and the big APR rear soar.
It turned into as soon as supplied with various paperwork documenting its time as a film star plus a certificate of authenticity. As some distance as we are in a position to determine, it’s essentially the most costly F&F film automotive ever, which is unlikely to replace any time quickly unless Hero 1 graces the overall public sale block.
