2 Fast 2 Furious Mazda RX-7 with Flamethrower Exhaust Up for Auction

[adinserter block="3"]

This 1993 Mazda RX-7 was prominently featured in the first and second installments of the Fast and Furious movie franchise, and  is set to grab the attention of car enthusiasts and movie fans alike at the upcoming Mecum Auctions’ Indy sale from May 12 to 20.

The vehicle is expected to be one of the most highly sought-after lots at the auction, thanks to its connection to the beloved action film franchise.

The 1993 Mazda RX-7 is an iconic vehicle that has become synonymous with the Fast and Furious franchise, and it’s not hard to see why. The car’s sleek, aerodynamic design and powerful rotary engine make it a dream ride for any car enthusiast, and its appearance in the films has only added to its mystique. As such, it is expected to fetch a high price at the auction, and may even break records for the sale of a car featured in a movie.

While the car is perhaps more widely remembered from its appearance in the 2003 sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, where it was driven by Amaury Nolasco’s character Orange Julius, it was originally created for the first Fast and Furious movie and it was driven by actor Chad Lindberg’s character Jesse.

Yet, this RX-7 is not just special because of its Hollywood history, but also because of the impressive modifications it has undergone.

The car’s exterior boasts a House of Kolor Ultra Orange Pearl paint job with “Orange Julius” decals, along with a Versus body kit and J-Spec hood. It still has its iconic pop-up headlights, which are complemented by Cat 2 fog lights and Ro_Ja 18-inch 5-spoke wheels. Additionally, the car features a flamethrower exhaust, adding to its already impressive appearance.

While the exterior of the car has undergone significant upgrades, the engine has remained largely unchanged. The car is equipped with a 1.3-liter rotary unit that produces 252bhp and 217lb-ft of torque, and is paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. Inside, the car is fitted with black and red Sparco racing seats, along with a three-spoke racing wheel, completing the car’s sporty aesthetic.

The car was built by Eddie Paul, a renowned Hollywood car builder, and has undergone extensive maintenance and upkeep over the years, with more than $40,000 being spent on engine and transmission work, and new wiring, to ensure that it remains in top condition.

Despite the modifications and changes made to it over time, this RX-7 remains a highly coveted piece of movie memorabilia and is sure to attract a lot of attention at the upcoming auction.
