The Toyota Supra that the late Paul Walker drove in The Fast and the Furious has been sold at auction for $550,000 .

The 1994 car, which featured in 2003 movie 2 Fast 2 Furious, features "perhaps the most renowned engine to ever come from Japan" – the 2JZ-GTE – a description released ahead of the auction read.

While the winning bidder has chosen to remain anonymous, the final bid was made via the phone.

The sale is a big step up from the last auction of a Fast and the Furious car – an authentic Supra which was sold for $185,000 back in 2015.
