Anyone who is a big fan of the Fast and Furious movie series can recall the 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo from Tokyo Drift. You know, the one that ends up rolling over numerous times after racing a sexy, red Dodge Viper. If you’re having a brain fart, the photos in this eBay listing should jog your memory.
The ’71 Monte Carlo was casted and created by the “Hollywood car man,” Dennis McCarthy, and was driven by actor Lucas Black. According to the listing, this is McCarthy’s “all time career favorite” out of all the of the cars he built for the movie series. The ad also mentions that McCarthy compared this Monte Carlo to the Eleanor Mustang from the movie, Gone In 60 Seconds. We’re not entirely sure about this million dollar comparison. If you ask us, the silver Nissan Skyline R34 GTR driven by the late and great Paul Walker is a bit more fitting, at least in terms of being an icon.
The eBay listing also states that Universal Pictures will no longer be releasing cars to the general public for auction, and that this movie car is “THE LAST OF ITS BREAD.”
We’re not sure if this really is the last car of its breed, though the manner in which the listing was written has us skeptical of the author’s credibility. However, we think it’s safe to say that this Chevrolet Monte Carlo, while totally awesome, is not worth one million dollars.
