What are the most iconic cars of the Fast & Furious franchise? The orange Supra, to be sure. Dom's Charger, obviously. Beyond that? A lot of also-rans, basically. Like this 2002 Nissan 350Z from Tokyo Drift. Be honest: you forgot this thing even existed. .
, this is claimed to be the actual film car that character D.K. (for "Drift King," natch) perfectly corkscrewed up the ramp in the parking garage. The listing says this Veilside-modified 350Z packs an APS twin-turbo setup pumping out 430 horses and 420 lb-ft of torque, sent through a Nismo twin-plate clutch to a Nismo two-way differential.
It definitely feels like it's from 2006—the Veilside Version 3 widebody kit, the outlandish decals, the big ol' platform wing out back, the (probably not structural) roll cage and NOS bottle, all point to a very specific era in automotive styling. Even if you forgot about this car among the many hundreds of wild vehicles the seven-movie franchise has gone through, you immediately recognize it as a Fast & Furious ride.
How did this original movie prop vehicle end up in the U.K. of all places? The listing won't say, though the seller does point out that it's fully documented to prove its provenance, and it's registered for road use in the U.K.
The dealership is seeking just under £99,950, or around $133,270 at today's exchange rates. Yes, the first movie's orange Supra hero car pulled in $200,000 when it went up for sale in 2015, and yes, movie cars operate in a completely different market far removed from everyday car sales. But we still can't shake the feeling that the seller is asking a lot of money for a car that you probably haven't thought of since 2006.
