Paul Walker Collection Headed to Auction

21 cars owned by the late star and beloved enthusiast - including an R32 Skyline and several E36 M3 Lightweights - prepped for Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale

The untimely death of actor Paul Walker in 2013, one of the popular stars from the "Fast & the Furious" film franchise, sent a ripple effect of loss across the enthusiast universe, one that still surprises us to this day. Last year's Car Hangout In Memory of Paul was insanity, with a bonkers mix of vehicles and crush of humanity coming out to take part that was unprecedented. We have a feeling the upcoming sale of part of Walker's large car collection might garner similar interest, set for Barrett-Jackson's 49th Annual Scottdale Auction in January 2020.

A group of 21 vehicles from the personal collection of the late actor are headed to the block, a stable that includes among other things a Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R race car, a 370Z from the movie "Fast Five," and seven (!) BMW M3 across two generations of the high-performance machine. The full list looks like this:

That '89 Skyline sports a full roll cage and a gutted interior with little more than a Sparco Circuit Pro VTR race seat in the drivers position of the RHD. It sits on Enkei RPF1 wheels in black, and improvements for its RB26DETT inline-6 come from HKS, APEX'I, and Koyorad, but there's no indication which racing series the vehicle may have come from (the platform was a popular and successful touring car entry in its era). The other Nissan in the collection is a Z34 movie car on custom Volk Racing TE37 rims and with only 2,623 miles on the odometer.

The seven M3 are comprised of two E30 and five E36 Lightweights. The M3 Lightweight is a lighter, track-oriented version of the revered E36 M3, and nearly all Lightweights featured a more aggressive rear wing and front spoiler, along with an Alpine White paint scheme finished with a BMW Motorsport colored checkered flag livery. This gathering of five 1995 BMW M3 Lightweights of the 125 produced will be the most E36 lightweights ever sold at a single auction.
