Fast and the Furious F-Bomb 1973 Camaro Replica – Click above for high-res image gallery

We won't ask you whether or not you want the real-life F-Bomb 1973 Camaro because, let's face it, deep down inside, we all want a 1,500 horsepower, twin-turbo V8 beast to play with. But would you lay down your hard-earned pay check on a facsimile of the car built for the latest Fast and the Furious? If so, here's your chance. One of the movie cars built just for filming and piloted by Vin Diesel himself is up for grabs.

The car is being sold by the Volo Auto Museum for a measly $39,998. We're assured that the Camaro is fully functional, and is capable of being driven on the street if your heart so desires. It's worth noting that the replica gets its power from a fairly healthy 350 V8 bolted to an automatic gearbox instead of the glorious mill Hot Rod Magazine chose for the genuine article. Originally set up for wheelie scenes and camera work, the faux F-Bomb still boasts all of the hardware for those duties.

Could you build your own F-Bomb replica for less than $40k? Maybe, but it wouldn't have a film history behind it.

      I rather spend that money on the r34 they had in the movie

      Wasn't this a HotRod build car?

      I'd have it for being in the mag rather than in the movie.

      Now, with more engine sparkle! Ugh..Someone needs to go back to Photoshop school. Those ground reflections don't even make sense!..

      Having said that, even though it's overpriced, I love the look. This was always my fave F-Body.

      Yeah the guy who built the original F-bomb for Hot Rod Magazine is probably mad there is a clone running around of his car. Oh well for originality.

      Question is, does it include all the unnecessary weight in the trunk to do wheel stands whenever one wants too?

        I'm sure he was asked permission and got some sort of royalties package and if not money then notoriety for them "using" his car in the movie.

      I'd rather have the resto-mod 72 Gran Torino from the 4th movie.

      some new tech updates under the old-school skin... like, say the driveline of a 2011 Mustang GT, the new 5.0 and 6-speed manual, backed by a Jaguar-esque rear suspension with a Ford 9" diff, and a hot-rod chopped-in upgraded Mustang II front suspension and steering rack, and some modern brakes and dampers.

      Throw in some modern wheels and tires, but not dubs. Half way between the old 15" stock, and too-big dubs... maybe 17" fronts, and 18" rears with some tires with at least some meat to them, but not completely soft.

      If all this nanny state stuff keeps rolling on, a resto-mod like that might be what I end up driving anyway.

      40 k for a 73 Camaro with a 350?

      .......child please.

      This could be a pretty good looking car if you get rid of that
      ugly non-original rear spoiler, wheels and paint job.

      The body looks like it's in good shape.

      An awesome color, wheels, tires, seats and some
      chrome are in order here.

        That would defeat the point of the design intent. It' supposed to look liek a muscle car rat rod.

      Vin Disels? Why would you say that.....
