History will never forget Paul Walker and his life surrounded by cars. But now, you could be a part of that history, too. See what cars in Paul Walker’s collection are heading to auction this month.
Twenty-one cars in Paul Walker’s car collection will be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson’s 2020 Auction this month. Though many know Walker for his role in the Fast and Furious movies, he wasn’t just a lover of all things fast. Some of the cars making their way to auction may be surprising, but they won’t leave any buyers disappointed.
Barrett-Jackson bidders can expect to see a handful of BMW M3s, one of Walker’s most beloved models, that were factory-made especially for the IMSA Firehawk Series. Walker also had a taste for Chevys. Two Chevrolet Novas, one wagon and the other a custom coupe, will be sold alongside a Chevelle project car. His Nissan 370Z, gifted to Walker many years back, with teal wheels and only one seat will be sold, too. This 370Z’s claim to fame (besides the teal wheels) is its cameo in Fast Five.
The most surprising cars to be sold are Walker’s Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer Edition, a Ford F-250, and a Toyota Tundra. Little did we know Paul Walker had an affinity for utility vehicles, too. Several motorcycles will be sold from Walker’s collection, too, including a custom Harley-Davidson bike and a BMW dual-enduro. But auctioning off Paul Walker’s cars couldn’t be done without including one of the cars that grew up alongside his career. A 1989 Nissan Skyline R32, in gun metal gray, will be in the mix of cars sold at the auction.
Though not a part of Paul Walker’s car collection, two cars from the Fast and Furious franchise will be sold at Barrett-Jackson, too. Vin Diesel’s Frankencuda from Fast Five, a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda Coupe, will be sold autographed by the movie cast. With a Hemi V8 engine and a three-speed Turbo 400 transmission, the car isn’t just made for Hollywood driving. The Frankencuda was sold at auction for over $300,000 in 2011, so those wanting to get behind the wheel should have some deep pockets.

The star of it all may be the car used in Fast & Furious 7 to pay tribute to Paul after his death. The Dodge Charger, known as Maximums the Ultimate Charger, was hand-built by Scott Spock Racing and was customized with a Hemi V8 engine, a dual-fuel injection system, sway bars, and a GPS-based traction control system. Supposedly, this Charger hits 60 miles per hour in 1.8 seconds, which makes it a contender against today’s fastest vehicles also known as hypercars. A true tribute to a man who liked to go fast and ride hard.
Starting January on 9th through the 11th, the cars will be up for sale to the highest bidder without reserve. Could it be you?
