Movie cars can sometimes be a tough sell. Many times they are just normal cars plucked off the assembly line or a dealer lot, given a fresh coat of paint, and put right to work. Such is the case for this car used in the 2001 flick The Fast and the Furious.

eBay find: Mitsubishi Eclipse from the Fast and the Furious
- image 276763

Fans of the classic film (classic for cars, not acting) will instantly recognize this Mitsubishi Eclipse. There were multiple copies made for the movie and four survived. This example was used for exterior shots, so there is no modification to the interior or engine. This means if the winning bidder is not only treated to the luxury of mid-90s plastics, but the standard 140 hp 2.0-liter four cylinder engine will also likely be embarrassed by anything made this decade.

The auction is currently at $17,000, and there are no bids. If this were just some normal 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse, then the value wouldn’t even reach $4,000. So are the ass prints of Paul Walker and Vin Diesel (or more likely multiple stuntmen pretending to be them) worth an extra $13,000?

Naah, So what ever happened to the next 4 copies? I mean one was burnt (in Chinatown or something), anyways, if it is stock and it is only the paint that is what makes it an FF car I guess no one will buy it. They can just buy an old Eclipse such as this model for about 3 to 5 grand and get it painted the same way for a few hundreds of dollar.

Vin Diesels A$$ print? So I take it 95% of the women on ebay will be bidding on it. Plus 15% of men for the same reason.
