The car collection of late actor Paul Walker will cross the auction block at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale this January.
Walker, best known for his starring role in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ movie franchise, was killed in a 2013 car accident in Santa Clarita, Calif. He was 40 years old.
The franchise, which has seen eight films and one spin-off, has grossed more than $5 billion worldwide.
Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, said the franchise taught a new generation an appreciation of muscle cars and Japanese imports.
“For this generation, (Walker) was truly this cool, laid-back car guy,”Jackson said.
The collection headed to auction includes 18 cars and three motorcycles, including five 1995 BMW M3 Lightweights, the most ever sold at a single auction. Only 126 were ever produced.
The collection also includes a never-raced 2013 Ford Boss 302S racecar and a custom 2009 Nissan 370Z with only 2,623 miles that was featured in the film “Fast Five.”
Barrett-Jackson’s has made a name for itself as a no-reserve auction, meaning there will be no minimum price set on the cars from Walkers collection.
All proceeds from the auction will go to a trust for Walker’s daughter.
The cars will be sold individually from Wednesday through Saturday, with the BMWs set to sell on Saturday.
Cars being sold from Walker’s collection include a:
- 1963 Chevrolet Nova Wagon
- 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Wagon
- 1967 Chevrolet II Nova
- 1988 BMW M3 E30
- 1989 Nissan R32 Skyline Race Car
