Evaluation: Driven by Paul Walker in “The Fast and the Furious,” then further modified for use in “2 Fast 2 Furious” before returning to its original form more recently. While it is a stunt car rather than a “hero car” used for detail shots, it is confirmed to have been driven by the lead actor on camera, unlike most stunt cars. Its condition is presentable and not all that relevant. It’s all about the movie mystique here.
Bottom Line: This wasn’t the most expensive car in Vegas this year but, unsurprisingly, it got the most attention and brought a world record price for the model. Like it or not, the Fast and Furious franchise has made a huge cultural impact in the car world and it’s not a huge stretch to look at this car sort of like a millennial version of the Mustang from “Bullitt.”
