‘Fast and Furious’ star’s cars consigned to Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction

21 vehicles from Paul Walker’s collection will be offered for sale in January 2020

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.

    RIP Mr. Walker. Gone too soon, but I will bet that he’d rather have his collection with drivers than lingering in some museum.
    Not a fan of the ’80’s teal painted wheels, but they gotta stay. Wish I could afford one of those Lightweight Beemers…

      I would like the wagons ! I’m impressed a young man would have bought those
      I always wanted to buy a wagon back in high school in 1969. Put a 327 Vette engine in it , with high performance suspension and trans
      A sleeper , with a sleeper 😉
      Maybe Paul wanted too also ? What a shame the accident took the young mans life . He deserved so much more . I think many young people have stories of how many times they should have had the “accident” , so sad

    My son and I ran into Paul at the mall in Hawaii. He said Hi to everyone. Truly a stand up person and is missed by all. Of course his movies were great, but his demeanor reminds me of a normal guy having a good time. And I sensed that when he would have gave up all the fame. He’d be another normal great guy, having fun with cars, camping and enjoying life. His enthusiasm will be missed, along with the smile. JT

    There are two types of people in the World and Paul was a car person, and I have to put myself in that category also. I have grown old but my love of cars and speed are still part of my life, May Paul rest in peace knowing he was one of the elite persons in the car world.
