Twenty-one cars collected by the late Fast and Furious movie actor Paul Walker have been consigned for sale at Barrett-Jackson’s annual Scottsdale auction scheduled for January 2020, the auction company has announced.
“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,” Craig Jackson, auction company chairman and chief executive, is quoted in the announcement.
“We’re proud to help continue Paul Walker’s legacy by offering his esteemed collection to their new caretakers at our flagship Scottsdale event.”
After Walker’s death, his daughter, Meadow, and Reach Out Worldwide founded the Paul Walker Foundation to do charitable work.
The cars crossing the auction block include seven BMW M3 models, including two E30 versions and five E36 Lightweights. Only 125 of the Lightweights were produced. They each weigh only 2,950 pounds but have a 240-horsepower engine and 5-speed manual transmission.
“Paul Walker’s collection spanned five decades of automotive excellence and truly reflected his personal taste,” noted Steve Davis, Barrett-Jackson president.“Paul’s passion for performance was especially expressed in the cars he loved.
“This group of vehicles also represents the evolution of the hobby, as collectors are clearly broadening their horizons and diversifying their collections.”
Other cars from the Walker collection include a never-raced 2013 Ford Boss 302S, a 2009 Nissan 370Z that appeared in the Fast Five movie, a 1963 Chevrolet Nova station wagon, a 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle station wagon, and a 1967 a 1989 Nissan R32 Skyline race car.
