Fast & Furious star Paul Walker was a known motoring aficionado who had a car collection that spanned "five decades of automotive excellence and truly reflected his personal taste," says Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. A collection of 21 collectible vehicles once owned by late actor Paul Walker will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson's 49th annual Scottsdale Auction to be held from 11-19 January 2020. Major focus will be on his rare collection of BMW M3s, a 1989 Nissan Skyline 'racecar', and the Nissan 370Z that was used in the film 'Fast Five'.

Highlighting Paul Walker's car collection are seven BMW M3s, comprised of two E30 M3s and five E36 M3 Lightweights. The M3 Lightweight is a lighter, track-oriented version of the revered E36 M3. Nearly all Lightweights featured a more aggressive rear wing and front spoiler, along with an Alpine White paint scheme finished with a BMW Motorsport coloured checkered flag livery.

Powered by a BMW S50 3.0-litre straight-6 engine and backed by a 5-speed manual transmission, the Lightweight was factory-rated at 240 hp. This gathering of five 1995 BMW M3 Lightweights of the 125 produced will be the most E36 lightweights ever sold at a single auction.
