Paul Walker's car collection seemed to have a vast collection of amazing cars that were the "Fast & Furious" actor's representation of appreciation, love, and true passion for automobiles. After Paul Walker's tragic car accident, his car collection was auctioned through Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale. The auction covered all 21 cars from Paul Walker's collection, trucks, and motorcycles, and they were sold for exactly a total of $2,333,450 according to Barrett-Jackson's chairman and CEO Craig Jackson. 


10. Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale

Paul Walker's Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge is most probably the best-looking car from his collection. However, it wasn't just a regular 360, it had unique track-focused elements thanks to the special "Challenge Stradale" trim level, and boy-oh-boy, look at the rims!

 

The Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale was 240 lbs lighter than the Modena and is equipped with all the lightweight optional accessories. As of now, the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale seems to have an estimated price of $195,000.

Paul Walker also had several E36 M3 models in his collection, which are considered one of the best-handling sports cars of its era.

All of these were sold in the Barrett-Jackson auction in 2020. The most expensive one among them went for $258,000 and it had completed 42,514 miles at the time of the auction.

Paul Walker's Rolls Royce Ghost was finished in a matte blue exterior, done in a two-step process involving a blue base layer with a matte clear wrap.

5. 1995 BMW M3 Lightweight

Paul Walker's 1995 BMW M3 Lightweight

This M3 lightweight deserves a unique place for two reasons: one, its auction price, and two, its mileage. Sold at an auction value of 385,000, this specific model had an odometer running slightly above the 4,600-mile mark. Compared to the standard M3, the Lightweight edition was 220 lbs lighter than the standard M3.

Paul Walker was quite proud of his collection of M3 models, which was seven in total. This M3 Lightweight also got a factory LTW wing with no race livery. The interior was a combination of cloth and carbon fiber. The weight loss was achieved through the removal of the air conditioner, the sunroof, and the tool kit; some parts were made of aluminum as well. These include the door skins, the carpet, and the underbody insulator.


4. Ford GT

Paul Walker's 2005 Ford GT

Another unique and showstopper car owned by Paul Walker is this classic Ford GT. Paul Walker’s Ford GT was painted in a shade of bright red, and it was one of those no-nonsense supercars from America that didn't care about anything else but going faster than other supercars at any given moment. The car was sold for $478,000 in 2021.

The GT is one of the rarest cars in Walker’s collection and it holds a rich history as well. Ford raced a model named the GT40 in the late 1960s at Le Mans, and the car was so good that it kept on beating the championship leader Ferrari for several seasons. It was built under the supervision of the legend Carroll Shelby himself, and in 2005, Ford resurrected it in street-legal form to keep the legacy of the GT40 alive!


3. BMW M1

Paul Walker's 1980 BMW M1

Next up is the BMW M1, a classic piece of art from the pre-2000s era that steals the show at any given moment. The BMW M1 owned by Paul came with the classic BMW paint scheme, which incorporated the use of red, blue, and violet for its three stripes. The car ended up being sold for around $500,000.

Paul Walker's M1 was a race car built for the road, and only 453 units were ever made. Of these, 399 were built for the road, whereas the remaining were made for racing purposes. It is also one of the rarest production models from BMW. 


2. Saleen S7

Paul Walker's Saleen S7

The Saleen S7 is one of the most iconic cars in the American hypercar world and in addition to that one was actually owned by the famous ‘Brian O’Conner'. Although the late actor was rarely seen driving his Saleen S7, considering the enigma and personality of the late actor surely fitted his automotive appetite.

Paul Walker's Saleen S7 was probably the most popular car in his collection of cool cars, and it had an insane launch price of $375,000, but now it's estimated to be worth around $700,000. The all-aluminum build with a carbon fiber body kept the car’s weight under check at 2,865 lbs.
