Paul Walker‘s “Fast and Furious” character Brian O’Conner drove a 1994 Toyota Supra in two movies. The character is a former Los Angeles Police Department officer who relocated from Los Angeles, California, United States to Miami, Florida, USA.
The first film was “The Fast and the Furious,” which premiered in the U.S. on June 18, 2001. The second one was “2 Fast 2 Furious,” which was released in the U.S. on June 6, 2003.
In both films, the 1994 Toyota Supra was used for interior and exterior car shots. Among the features of the sports car are a factory turbocharged 2JZ-GTE engine and an APR aluminum biplane rear wing.
The 1994 Toyota Supra was sold for $550,00 at Barrett-Jackson‘s auction held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA from June 17-19, 2021. Sold with official documentation certifying its authenticity, it is now the most expensive Toyota Supra ever sold, according to Hypebeast.
Eddie Paul built the sports car at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, California for “The Fast and the Furious.” The original builder revised it before it appeared again in “2 Fast 2 Furious.”
Born in Santa Clarita, California to boxer Paul William Walker III and fashion model Cheryl Crabtree Walker, Paul grew up in Sunland-Tujunga, Los Angeles. On November 30, 2013, he and Roger Rodas died in a car crash in Valencia, Santa Clarita.
Rodas was driving Paul’s 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, which crashed into a concrete lamp post and two trees. The crash set fire to the vehicle and their bodies were burned beyond recognition.
Before Paul’s death, he appeared in six “Fast and Furious” films namely “The Fast and The Furious,” “2 Fast 2 Furious,” “Fast & Furious,” “Fast Five” and “Fast & Furious 6.” His character appeared posthumously in “Furious 7” in 2015, in “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017 and in “F9” in 2021.
