A Nissan 370Z that starred in 'Fast Five' also became the most expensive example to ever sell at auction.
The late Paul Walker was best known for playing Brian O'Conner in The Fast and the Furious franchise. Sadly, the actor was killed back in 2013 in a tragic car accident. Walker was a passenger in his Porsche Carrera GT when the driver lost control and collided with a pole, causing the car to burst into flames and killing them both. The late actor was also an avid car enthusiast, which is abundantly clear when you look at his incredible car collection.
Last weekend, 21 cars owned by the late actor were sold at the annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, selling for a combined $2.33 million. All proceeds will go to a trust for Meadow Walker, Paul Walker's 21-year-old daughter who manages the Paul Walker Foundation.
Eighteen cars and three motorcycles owned by Walker spanning five decades crossed the auction block.
The most valuable car in the collection was a rare 1995 BMW M3 Lightweight in Alpine White with just 4,600 miles on the clock, fetching $385,000. It was one of five BMW Lightweights owned by Walker sold at the auction and one of only 126 produced in total. They were already extremely rare and valuable, but having Paul Walker on the previous owner's list was always going to hike the price up. The other four sold for prices ranging from $220,000 to $258,500.
A 1989 Nissan Skyline R32 owned by Walker also sold for $100,100, while a custom 1967 Chevy Nova fetched $60,500, and a never-driven 2013 Ford Boss 302S gifted to the late actor by a car enthusiast and put into storage sold for $95,700.
Another highlight was a custom 2009 Nissan 370Z that starred in 'Fast Five' with 3,092 miles on the clock. It sold for $105,600, making it the most expensive Nissan 370Z to ever sell at auction. For comparison, a standard Nissan 370Z starts at $30,090.
