A 1968 Dodge Charger used for stunts and green screen scenes in “Fast & Furious” and “Fast Five” is headed to auction.

The Charger will hit the block on Saturday, April 22 via Carlisle Auctions as part of Spring Carlisle in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Due to the event’s past success, the Spring Carlisle show has been expended from two to three days, kicking off this year on April 20.

This comes less than a week after the eighth “Fast & Furious” installment – “The Fate of the Furious” – hits theaters on April 14.

“As we move forward and our auctions continue to evolve and expand, we are thrilled to offer this rare Charger as part of our inaugural Saturday auction,” said Director of Auction Operations Tony Cline. “It is exciting for our team to be chosen to represent this piece of Hollywood Automotive history and I encourage everyone to get involved for this very special weekend.”

The Charger, which will hit the block at around 12:30 p.m. ET on April 22 at the Carlisle Expo Center, is one of only two of eight Chargers from production to have survived undamaged. While its from 1968, its designed to look like a 1970 Charger for continuity purposes. It features a Chevrolet 350 small block V8 with a faux BDS 871 blower, as well as a 350-turbo transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear.

During one of the scenes shot with this car, Vin Diesel sat behind the steering wheel while the late Paul Walker rode along in the passenger seat.

The Charger is set to sell in the six figures, following the likes of a Trans Am owned by Burt Reynolds, which sold at the 2015 Carlisle Auctions for $181,900 including fees.
