Few people get to find their calling like Paul Walker did. The late actor and car aficionado not only starred in six of the Fast and the Furious movies, but he also had quite the performance car collection of his own. Now, people will have the opportunity to bid on cars from Paul Walker’s personal car collection when 21 of his own cars go up for auction next year.
His death in 2013 following a car accident shocked fans around the world and left a hole in the cast of the Fast and the Furious movies. But now, fans could have a chance to own one of his personal cars. What are some of the cars being put up for auction in January? Let’s take a look.
1995 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer Edition
The final trim model available before Ford stopped production of the Bronco, Walker’s 1995 Eddie Bauer Edition feels like one-of-a-kind. It’s finished in a black clearcoat with bronze accents and has a tan leather interior. It is equipped with a 5.8L V8 engine that gets 210 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque, and this 24-year-old beast only has 30,252 miles on it.
The Bronco has been making a comeback in recent years, since the announcement that Ford will be bringing it back to the production line in 2020.
While little is known for certain about the sixth-generation Bronco, it’s expected to be unveiled next spring and will eventually spawn a pickup truck to compete with the Jeep Gladiator.
1995 BMW M3 Lightweight
Walker was known to be an avid BMW fan and that’s proven by the five BMW M3 Lightweights being auctioned from his collection. These speedy little cars were manufactured to be lighter than previous M3 models, so much so that they are even without a radio and air conditioning to remove unnecessary weight.
These cars are all equipped with a BMW S50 3.0L straight-six engine and get around 240 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque. Walker’s M3 Lightweights are white and all but one has a tri-color checkered motif on the left-front and right-rear corners.
2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302S
A gift to Walker from a fellow racing enthusiast, his 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302S race car was put up on a lift for storage right after he received it, leaving it in near-new condition.
Powered by a 5.0L V8 engine, this race car is certain to make its new owner feel like a champion with all of the updates added to it. Finished with a Ford Racing splitter, an adjustable carbon-fiber wing on the back, and the Boss 302S graphics package, it’s no wonder why this one went into storage right away.
2009 Nissan 370Z
Fans of The Fast and the Furious franchise would love to get their hands on a memento from the movies. Paul Walker got to do just that, as his 2009 Nissan 370Z was actually in Fast Five.
Finished in silver with teal wheels, this speedster features graphics advertising Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide, an organization dedicated to providing immediate assistance to victims of natural disasters. His Nissan 370Z is equipped with a 3.7L V6 engine and gets 332 horsepower. Obviously fast enough for Fast Five, and faster than many of us could handle.
While Paul Walker’s fans continue to mourn his death, this car collection auction gives anyone the opportunity to bid on any of the 21 vehicles being auctioned from his personal collection.
A lover of performance cars long before he ever starred in the Fast and the Furious movies, Walker truly found his calling in the role that made him famous. The auction will take place through Barrett-Jackson Auction Company and will be held in January.
