Feeling like bringing a bit of color to your corporatist job, but you can’t really afford to quit and traveling the world? You could drive like a movie star instead. And it shouldn’t even be that expensive.

You don’t need to be an action movie fan to know about the Fast and Furious franchise. The first film, released in 2001, brought a whole new dimension to how we viewed car movies. It brought computer generated graphics and a slick modern take on the street racing scene in Southern California.

Filmed mostly in the areas of Long Beach Terminal Island, Prairie Avenue, the Los Angeles produce district, Hemet and at Northern Air Force base in San Bernardino, where the Race Wars segment was shot. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker starred in the action adventure film depicting a gritty look at rival Los Angeles teams, who use street racing as means of establishing status.

Custom touch

As most of the cars used in the movie, the 1996 Acura Integra GS-R was also a custom made little beast. And when we say little it’s mostly because of its engine. But let us take a closer look at what Jeffrey Atkins, better known as rap artist Ja Rule, drove in the movie.

From the Momo GT rims and Michelin radials to numerous suspension modifications, aimed at keeping the car tracking down the street, it’s under the hood where things get interesting. According to its current owner, the 1.9-liter V-Tec 4-cylinder’s original 170 horsepower rating was pumped up with a cold air intake, 3mm over-bored throttle body, TruTime adjustable cam timing gears, Type-R intake cam, overdrive pulleys for both the alternator and power steering.

Universal Studios made a copy of the car that was ultimately destroyed in the making of the film, leaving this as the only one remaining. The car also comes with the documentation, behind the scenes photographs and Ja Rule’s signature under the dash pad cover. The current bid is $30,300 and there are only about 4 days left until somebody will buy it, so you’d better hurry.
