Here’s your chance to own a piece of movie history. The replica 1965 Ford GT40 used in the fifth Fast and Furious movie, Furious Five, is about to go up for auction to the highest bidder.

It was built by Race Car Replicas in Michigan specifically for use in the movie. The Ford comes with a build sheet and registration from Race Car Replicas to prove its history. There is also paperwork from Universal Studios and a series of photos that are included with the sale of the car.

This GT40 replica has a 347/540-horsepower small block Ford engine and a 5-speed transmission. It also boasts race-tuned suspension, air conditioning, and heat, so it’s not a hollow shell of car that would be terrible to drive. There’s even a hand-stitched black leather interior.

After being featured in Furious Five, the car was then displayed as a part of the Universal Studios tour. According to Dupont Registry, it will be going up for auction through Mecum in Indianapolis this May.
