Unfortunately, the actor lost his life in a car accident in 2013, and from time to time, cars that belong to him or he was behind the wheel come up for auction. The same is the case of the 2000 Nissan Skyline R34, which was used in one of the films of this popular series.
The car was driven by Paul Walker himself in the fourth part of Fast and the Furious
Bonhams auction house, where you can bid on the legendary car, will be held at the end of the month. The car was customized to the actor’s needs. The Skyline R34 appeared in the fourth installment of the series, which began in 2009. Several models of the R34 GT-T were featured in the film, but the one up for auction is the original R34 GT-R.
The car has gone through several interesting modifications that Kaizo Industries was responsible for, but its story after the filming is even more interesting. This Nissan Skyline R34 was confiscated by the US government. The reason was the violation of the law regarding the importation and registration of the vehicle. Several years later, the car was “liberated” and brought to Munich, where it was displayed at the Munich Motorworld museum. It will now be sold at auction, which is scheduled to run from April 28 to May 5.
The initial auction price is unknown, but is believed to be in the six figures.
