Fans of the Fast & Furious film franchise will want to check out this latest listing. It may be located all the way over the pond in the UK, but it could be worth the trouble for the rare privilege of owning one of the stars of Tokyo Drift. It just won’t come cheap.
The vehicle in question is a 2002 Nissan 350Z tuned by Veilside for use in the third F&F film. It’s got a Version 3 widebody kit and twin APS turbochargers that bring output up to 430 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. All that muscle is handled by a Nismo two-way differential and twin-plate clutch. It’s got a roll cage, NOS tank, center-lock modular alloys, racing buckets… the works.
It’s the car that Takashi drove in the movie, and was imported to the UK by its current owner. With 9,800 miles on the odometer, it’s currently listed at Cheshire Classic Cars for a hair under £150,000 – or about $235k at current exchange rates.
Now if that strikes you as quite a handsome sum, you may be right – especially considering that the Toyota Supra from the first movie just sold a few months ago for $185k. That’s a hefty $50,000 difference, which could account for a pretty sweet garage to display it in or a whole lot of extra tires after you smoke these ones bald.
True, the pink Supra it may not have aged as well as this sinister-looking black Datsun, but then that Toyota is the one that the late star of the franchise Paul Walker drove himself. So as far as investments go, Walker’s Supra is bound to appreciate in value better than the Drift King’s Z. By autoblog
