Actor Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in 2013, was a huge car collector.
Barrett-Jackson has announced that they’ll be auctioning off 21 of Walker’s cars and motorcycles in January.
Highlights of the collection include seven BMW M3s and a Ford Mustang. One car, a custom 2009 Nissan 370Z, was even featured in “Fast Five.”
According to a press release from Barrett-Jackson, Walker’s collection “spanned five decades of automotive excellence and truly reflected his personal taste.” Among the 21 vehicles, you’ll find models from all over the globe, from the US to Germany, as well as Japan.
The highlight of the offerings may be Walker’s seven beloved BMW M3s. Of these, two are E30 M3s, while the other five are track-oriented E36 M3 Lightweights. Powered by a BMW S50 3.0-liter straight-6 engine, nearly all of the lightweights feature an “aggressive” rear wing and front spoiler, and are painted Alpine White with the BMW Motorsport colored checkered flag livery. Only 125 examples of the 240 hp two-door were ever made, and the five up for sale are the most to ever appear at a single auction.
Other vehicles up for grabs include a 1963 Chevrolet Nova wagon, a 1989 Nissan R32 Skyline racecar, a 2005 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic motorcycle, a 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302S race car and a 2009 Nissan 370Z. Outside the M3 Lightweights, it’s the 370Z that will be of most interest to collectors. The speedy import was used in the filming of “Fast Five” and has only 2,623 miles on the odometer.
Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction will take place between January 11 and January 19. Tickets to the sale, along with information on how to become a bidder, are available through the auction house’s website.
