It is hard to believe that Fast and Furious star and avid car collector Paul Walker passed away almost six years ago, yet his ill-fated ride in a Porsche Carrera GT happened on 30 November 2013.
The large collection of vehicles he left behind show just how much of a motorhead he was, and at next year’s Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in January, 21 of his vehicles will be going up for sale.
Among the varied offerings will be no fewer than five 1995 E36 Lightweight M3s. As only 125 of these cars were made, Walker clearly had a soft spot for them. Two examples of the earlier E30 M3 will also be joining this group as will a 2000 Audi S4.
It’s not all about German sports cars either as there are American pick-ups from Ford, Chevy and Toyota, two ’60s Chevy Novas and even a 1995 Ford Bronco SUV. What most people will be looking for, though, are cars that featured in the Fast and Furious franchise and for them, there is a 2623 mile 2009 Nissan 370Z as used in the filming of the ‘Fast Five’.
Another car that Walker had great affection for is the Nissan Skyline, while the 1989 R32 race car on offer did not feature in the films, it will surely garner a lot of attention at the upcoming auction, as will the 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302S Race Car.
“Paul’s impact was immense through both his influence as an actor in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ movies and his philanthropic drive as the founder of Reach Out Worldwide,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, “We’re proud to help continue Paul Walker’s legacy by offering his esteemed collection to their new caretakers at our flagship Scottsdale event.”
