The Fast and Furious star liked a BMW.
Best known for playing undercover cop, Brian O'Conner, in The Fast and the Furious franchise, Paul Walker tragically died in 2013 aged 40 during the filming of Furious 7. Walker was riding as a passenger in his Porsche Carrera GT when the driver lost control and hit a lamp post and some trees resulting in the car going up in flames. Walker was a car guy through and through, and now 21 cars from his personal collection are set to be auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson.
The cars will go on sale at Barrett-Jackson's 2020 Scottsdale Auction, and the highlights will depend on tastes. Walker loved his classic BMWs, and in the auction are seven M3 models, made up of two E30 M3s and five 1995 E36 M3 Lightweight models complete with Alpine White paint and BMW Motorsport colored checkered flag livery. One features a Factory LTW wing and race-livery delete. Barrett-Jackson notes in its press release that: "This gathering of five 1995 BMW M3 Lightweights of the 125 produced will be the most E36 lightweights ever sold at a single auction."
The oldest vehicles from Walker's collection going under the hammer are from the 1960s, including a 1963 Chevrolet Nova Wagon, 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Wagon, and a 1967 Chevrolet II Nova.
More on-brand is a 1989 Nissan R32 Skyline race car and a low-mileage custom 2009 Nissan 370Z that appeared in Furious 5. It's unclear whether the ECU has ever thrown up a Danger To Manifold warning though. However, because this is Barrett-Jackson, the centerpiece of the collection is a 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302S racer that was never raced and will go across the block in pristine condition.
