Ladies, Gentlemen, and Fast and Furious fans worldwide, listen up. The white Volkswagen Jetta driven by Jesse (played by Chad Lindberg) from the 2001 The Fast And The Furious, is headed to the 2016 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ.
The car is currently owned by actor Frankie Muniz, who purchased the 1995 Jetta in 2002 when he was just 16 years old. The Volkswagen Jetta is fitted with a custom stereo, an on-board PlayStation 2, and the usual wild graphics and body-kit pieces that we all remember from the movie.
To authenticate the vehicle’s involvement in the movie, the car has been signed by Chad Lindberg, Director Rob Cohen, and the late Paul Walker.
On the silver screen, we saw Jesse race the white Jetta against Johnny Tran’s (played by Rick Yune) black Honda S2000 in the high-speed Race Wars action scene. However, in reality, the car is more show than go. Under the hood, there is a mostly stock 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine, which is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.
But, if you are interested in owning a piece of the franchise’s history, then head over to Scottsdale, Arizona between January 23 to 31 for your chance to drive home in this beauty.
