This Weekend, a Mitsubishi Eclipse from the original ‘The Fast and the Furious’ will be auctioned.

Nobody could have predicted the impact of The Fast and the Furious in 2001 on the big-budget Hollywood film industry.

The so-called Furious saga has now spanned nearly ten films, the most recent of which grossed just over (dollar)700 million at the box office.

It all began with a lime green 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse, which is now for sale at Mecum Auctions.

The car is expected to cost between (dollar)75,000 and (dollar)125,000 when it arrives in Kissimmee, Florida, but that’s nothing compared to Paul Walker’s orange Supra, which sold for (dollar)550,000 last June.

All of the movie upgrades are included, including a Jensen CD stereo system, Sparco seats, a roof scoop, and more.

Despite its brief appearance in the film, in which the Eclipse is shot to bits and then exploded by the villainous Johnny Tran and his cousin Lance Nguyen, the Eclipse is still arguably one of the most coveted pieces of franchise memorabilia.

The car is the sixth generation of Mitsubishi Eclipses used in the film, and it will be accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Cinema Vehicle Services.

The Hollywood Car Museum in Last Vegas has a bullet-holed replica of the movie car on display.

According to Mecum,

“Like so many of these modern Hot Rods, the Eclipse is laden with details that often go unnoticed, such as custom sideview mirrors, a racing sport wheel that eliminates the factory airbag unit, and, of course, the infamous diamond-plate floor pans.”

In a drag race, Walker’s Brian O’Conner overtakes rival Dominic Torreto (played by Vin Diesel).

It would not only lead to the characters’ everlasting friendship, but it would also serve as a symbol for the car, marking its place in Hollywood history.

However, it is not identical to the film adaptation.

Unlike its fictional counterparts, the 35 will have automatic transmission.

Nonetheless, it will be a collector’s dream to own and is in excellent condition.

With several more Fast and Furious films on the way, those initial estimates are likely to be very low.
