The Fast and Furious franchise has given us some pretty neat cars and now you have a chance to buy one of those. If you watched Fast Five, aka Fast & Furious 5, you would have noticed the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette in several of the scenes. The producers contracted Mongoose Motorsports, a GM licensed manufacturer, to build 12 of these vehicles and as we know, many film cars do not survive. But non the less, here is an immaculate example used in the film, available for purchase!
It should be noted, there are only 3 out of those 12 made still out there, so these are exceptionally rare. If you were going to try to find a stock Grand Sport Corvette, you are going to have an even tougher time as only 5 were made with 2 being convertibles and 3 coupes. Those originals currently sell for in the millions so this film car might be even more attractive.
Mongoose Motorsports has done an excellent job of replicating the original down to every detail. It features a full custom tubular chassis with C4 suspension, and a GM performance crate 350 engine to move this beast. The engine produces 380 horsepower and has an automatic transmission mated to it.
This vehicle specifically was the green-screen car, and for those unfamiliar with movie cars, this is the cream of the crop. Green-screen cars are mounted on a special rig in front of a green-screen while the actors are filmed in it. These vehicles do not get used for any stunt work and are basically garage queens. For those who know the franchise, this Corvette also had the most time with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in it.
Bidding starts April 14th and ends April 21 during an online no reserve auction. You can get the details here.
