Toyota Supra From “Fast and Furious” Sets Auction Record
A few days before Fast 9 finally hits theatres in North America, a car that became a legend due to its role in the first two movies of the Fast and Furious franchise was the star of the 2021 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction.
The famous 1994 Toyota Supra driven by the late Paul Walker a.k.a. Brian O’Conner – it’s the “10-second car” that helped forge Brian and Dominic Toretto’s relationship – fetched a record-breaking bid of $550,000 USD, or approximately $683,000 given the current exchange rate.

At a Mecum Auctions event in May 2015, the same Supra was sold for $185,000 USD ($225,000 CAD), which is three times less money.
Among the other vehicles that broke the bank at the Barrett-Jackson auction this past weekend was a McLaren P1 owned by Canadian artist and record producer Deadmau5, which sold for a record $1,567,500 USD ($1.96 million CAD).
A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL also topped 1 million $USD.
