Whether you've never heard of or have seen Fast & Furious Live, the cars are now being auctioned off because of its lackluster performance and financial difficulties last year.
The live show, which was thought to be a groundbreaking arena car show, toured Europe throughout 2018 and was expected to go global this year. With the production coming to a halt after completing most of its European summer tour dates, most of the show's equipment which includes an impressive lineup of cars and props have been available in online auctions since January 2019.
Among the cars being auctioned off is the Chevrolet LS-engined "ramp car" from The Fast & the Furious 6 (above) and the original Nissan 350Z from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift that received a second life in the show. Both are available with starting bids at approximately $12,851 and $25,703, respectively. A Jaguar V6-engined replica Lamborghini used in the eighth film is also on offer with an opening bid of $25,703.
The show also used cars that were specifically built for the production by The Fast & the Furious franchise car guru, Dennis McCarthy. Since Tokyo Drift, McCarthy has been involved with the franchise and has produced a trio of Dodge Chargers – including a replica of the star car from The Fate of the Furious (below).
All the vehicles are available in the sale, including a trio of Ford-engined Honda Civics, a "BenSopra" Nissan GT-R (which was previously used in the successful Top Gear Live tour), a Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7, Honda S2000, a Nissan Skyline GT-R all covered in tens of thousands of LEDs (below), and a fleet of ex-police Dodge Chargers.
One important thing to remember is that the cars that are being auctioned are not road legal.
