Isn’t it amazing the way movie cars are drawing big money at the high profile collector car auctions? When a 1967 Eleanor Mustang Shelby replica from the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds” sold for $1 million at the Mecum Auction in May of 2013 it was a shot heard round the world in the collector car market. Ever since then the owners of movie cars built by Cinema Vehicle Services are realizing they may be next in line. Ca-ching!
This week an Indianapolis collector listed his 1970 Dodge Charger which is the actual car driven by Vin Diesel in the “Fast and the Furious” movie. The seller didn’t write too much about it in his ad copy but he told us over the phone that this is the car that Vin Diesel drove in the final scene when his character, Dominic Toretto, avoids a train during a street race only to kiss a semi which sends Dom and the Charger airborn. This is the car that was used in that scene, according to the owner. He says the car remains exactly as it was when the scene was shot. Call for documentation and history on this car.
This car has been SOLD.
