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.

VW Passat TDI 40K Long-Term Test Wrap: VW’s Family Sedan Embraces the American Way

Nov 4 2014 10:19am CST | Source: Car and Driver

Family sedans from Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, and Toyota have all earned their places in our culture, but Volkswagen’s Passat has always struggled to assimilate. Between its arrival in 1974 as the Dasher and its sixth-generation redesign in 2012, the Passat was at times too small, too unreliable, and too expensive. Sales remained relatively microscopic. Just 12,497 Passats moved in 2010; Mitsubishi came close to unloading more Galants. Back then, the Passat didn’ ...

By The Numbers: October 2014: Sales Rise Even As Temperatures Fall Edition

Nov 3 2014 4:29pm CST | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: By the Numbers By now, most of the leaves have fallen across many of the fine 50 states, and the first snowfalls have just begun to spread their way across what had been such finely manicured lawns in the Midwestern part of the country. Children have entombed themselves into their rooms, Halloween candy nestled away for the winter, and the prime season for buying new cars is coming to an end. Just don't tell the automotive buying public. Sales rema ...

The 9 best vehicles for the Canadian zombie apocalypse

Oct 31 2014 12:13pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Speaking purely for myself, I’m really looking forward to the coming zombie apocalypse. Just think of it: no line ups at Starbucks, no more “Beliebers” on Twitter, a huge reduction in traffic, and if you see someone shuffling along slowly with a downcast gaze it’s perfectly socially acceptable to sneak up and smack them upside the head with a cricket bat. You can’t do that today to someone glued to their i ...
