The hammer has just dropped on the auction for the iconic Toyota Supra film car from Fast & Furious — and with the sale, a new record was made.

The car was introduced in the film after Paul Walker‘s character Brian O’Conner gets his Mitsubishi Eclipse blown up by Johnny and Lance. Owing Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) a ten-second card, O’Conner finds a completely written off Toyota Supra Mark IV, but with the 2JZ still intact. After the Mad Scientist put in his wrench time in the junkyard find along with “$15,000 or more” and “overnight parts from Japan,” the end result in the film was this Candy Orange Supra.

While that was all fiction from the movie, the real details of the car are equally impressive. Built by Eddie Paul at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, California, this car features the legendary twin-turbo 3.0-liter 2JZ-GTE engine, “Nuclear Gladiator” graphics by Troy Lee Designs, a Bomex body kit, APR racing wing, 19-inch Racing Hart M5 wheels, a momo steering wheel, and a number of gauges. The one downside is that the sports car is actually a 4-speed automatic where the shifter knob was added into the interior for the sake of the movie.

Selling for $550,000 USD at Barrett-Jackson‘s Las Vegas auction, this movie car (appearing in both Fast & Furious and 2 Fast 2 Furious) now holds the record for most expensive Supra ever sold and was sold with official documentation certifying its authenticity.
