Development for The Fast and the Furious movie came about after director Rob Cohen read a Vibe magazine article in 1998 titled “Racer X”, which detailed the illegal street racing circuit operating within New York City.

One vehicle that stood out from the rest in that movie is most certainly Walker’s (Brian O’Conner) Toyota Supra. Platinum Car Sales spent one year building a replica and it quickly sold for $37,559 USD. Read more for additional pictures and information.
