The Toyota Supra that defined The Fast and the Furious movie franchise finally made it to the Hot Wheels mainline in 2013. Fans of the franchise and Hot Wheels were enamored for two reasons: one, the Supra and the ’70 Dodge Charger from the first movie were finally released, and two, it opened the door for more Fast & Furious movie cars.
Driven by Brian O’Connor (Paul Walker) in the movie, the Supra was Brian’s promise to deliver a 10-second car to fellow racer, Dominic Toretto to settle his debt and gain respect in the racing world. The car was featured prominently for the second-half of the movie and kick-started a run on Toyota Supras with the tuner crowd.
The Supra was a car that the Hot Wheels crowd would have love to have gotten their hands on as well. However, it wasn’t until this version in 2013 that Hot Wheels even produced a realistic 1990’s Toyota Supra. Based on a ’94 Toyota Supra with a body kit, the Hot Wheels Toyota Supra has had several great releases since. This includes a Falken Tires sponsored Supra in 2014 and a Super Treasure Hunt Supra in 2015.
Low and behold we were eventually greeted with a whole Fast & Furious line sold exclusively at Walmart stores. This line did feature a more detailed version of this Supra as well. For a few months however, we did not know that so fans snatched these orange Supras up and made them a little hard to find since they didn’t last long on the pegs — the only knock, they just weren’t detailed…continued.
