2 Fast 2 Furious Mitsubishi Evo Hits eBay

Movie car turns up on eBay

If you're a fan of the fast and furious movie franchise, you could easily love or hate the second film in the series. The movie was called 2 Fast 2 Furious and is known for bad acting, rather cheesy cars, and a cheesy storyline among other things. Even though the movie was pretty bad, some of the cars used in the film were interesting.

One of the cars that was actually used in the movie was the green Mitsubishi Evo that Paul Walker drove. While most of the cars used in the film were base model Mitsubishi Lancers fixed up to look like the big dog Evo, the only actual Evo used in the film is now up for sale on eBay.

According to the auction description, the car has only 800 miles on it and is street legal. It has the questionable paint scheme seen in the movie and honestly really just doesn't look that cool. The car has been in a private collection since 2011 and is apparently actually fast. The car is a real Evo VII and the only thing missing from the film is the onboard computer and it lacks the blowoff valve sound inside the car.

Motorsports: Volkswagen clinches second consecutive World Rally Championship

Oct 27 2014 4:52pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Motorsports, Volkswagen Not unlike some other motor racing disciplines, the World Rally Championship tends to be ruled by dynasties. The late 1980s were dominated by Lancia, Toyota won a succession of titles in the early 90s, Mitsubishi and Subaru traded top spots in the late 90s and Citroën dominated from 2003 through 2012. But these days its all about Volkswagen. The German automaker jumped into the WRC last year with the Polo R WRC and proceeded to win ten out of the th ...
