Car and Driver: Up for Auction: The Volkswagen Jetta from the First “The Fast and the Furious”

Recommended Posts

-Remember that white Volkswagen Jetta that Jesse (played by Chad Lindberg) took to Race Wars in the original The Fast and the Furious? It’s for sale at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2016 auction.

Currently owned by actor Frankie Muniz, who bought it back in 2002 when he was just about 16, this 1995 Jetta has a custom stereo, an on-board PlayStation 2, and all the wild graphics and body kit pieces you remember from the movie. It’s been autographed by Paul Walker, Chad Lindberg, and director Rob Cohen.

In the movie, the Jetta was the star in an action-packed scene, but you may be disappointed to find out that the real-life car isn’t quite as impressive as its on-screen portrayal. Under the hood is a mostly stock 2.0-liter four-cylinder hooked up to a four-speed automatic, which makes the ever-prevalent Fast and Furious-y gearshifting cuts rather pointless. But hey, if you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of cinema history, you’ll have your chance in Scottsdale, Arizona, from January 23 to 31.
