Getting the chance to own a car from a movie isn’t profoundly special. After all, many of them get sold off after production has ended. This one, however, if you couldn’t tell from its fancy race livery, is very special indeed.
Not only was it built for the original Fast and Furious movie and signed by the late Paul Walker, it’s also currently owned by Frankie Muniz of Malcolm in the Middle fame. And now you have a chance to own it.
That’s right, the winged white VW will head to the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale, Arizona in late January 2016.
The car is more than just a Jetta with a special paint job and some gold signatures on the rear; it’s also been heavily tuned — and not just the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The interior also features a PlayStation 2, as well as a custom stereo. Don’t laugh; that was pretty trick for its time.
Truly, the only letdown of this supped-up boy-racer is its 4-speed automatic transmission. Any cool factor gained by the spoiler, side graphics or high-performance motor are all but ruined by the self-shifting slush box under the hood.
But nonetheless this car is likely best for owning rather than driving. It’ll likely continue to increase in value even if it is an automatic.
