Paul Walker’s ‘Fast & Furious’ Car Is Up for Sale – Proceeds to Benefit his Charity
When he died unexpectedly last year, actor and racer Paul Walker left behind a beautiful young daughter, a legion of heartbroken fans and a charitable organization that provides much needed services for those in disaster areas. Now, film and racing enthusiasts will get a chance to drive home an automotive treasure and help out Walker’s charity, too.
The electric blue Nissan Skyline GT-R 34 that Walker drove in the 2009 film Fast & Furious is up for sale through GT-A in Munich, Germany with an asking price of 1 million Euros (about $1.35 in American dollars). The car runs on a twin-turbo charged Nissan straight 6-cylinder, 2.6-liter engine with dual overhead cams. It sports a custom roll cage, 19×11 Volk Racing RE30 wheels, Turbonetics front-mount intercooler and Nismo lowering springs. It’s still got a Florida title and comes with a copy of the Universal Studios rental contract for the film.
Fifty percent of the sale price will benefit Walker’s charity, Reach Out Worldwide. The organization has assisted those suffering in the wake of tornados in Alabama, Illinois and Oklahoma; earthquakes in Chile and Haiti; flooding in Colorado; the typhoon in the Philippines; and the tsunami in Indonesia.
Walker was killed in November when the Porsche Carrera GThe was a passenger in crashed in Valencia, California, killing both the actor and the car’s driver, Roger Rodas.
