The late ‘Fast and the Furious’ star’s extensive car and motorcycle collection will be put up for sale early next year

A group of 21 collectible vehicles from the late actor Paul Walker has been consigned to Barrett-Jackson’s 49th Annual Scottsdale Auction, set for January 2020.

Best known for his role in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise and for his charitable work, Walker’s vehicles will cross the auction block during The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale.

“We’re deeply honoured to offer the amazing Paul Walker Collection at our 2020 Scottsdale Auction,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson in a statement. “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. We’re proud to help continue Paul Walker’s legacy by offering his esteemed collection to their new caretakers at our flagship Scottsdale event.”

Highlights of the late actor’s collection include seven BMW M3s, comprised of two E30 M3s and five E36 M3 Lightweights. The collection of five 1995 BMW M3 Lightweights of the 125 produced will be the most E36 lightweights ever sold at a single auction.

“Paul Walker’s collection spanned five decades of automotive excellence and truly reflected his personal taste,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “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 highlights will include a never-raced 2013 Ford Boss 302S race, a low-mileage custom 2009 Nissan 370Z (that made an appearance in the film “Fast Five”), a 2011 BMW motorcycle, and a 1989 Nissan R32 skyline race car, among others.

The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction will be held between January 11 and 19, 2020. Tickets and bidder information can be found on the auction house’s website.
