When it comes to the aftermarket car world there are many celebrities who have turned their fame and fortune into awesome car collections, and one man who really took his car collection to the next level was Paul Walker. The notable movie star had always loved cars, but his big break came in the movie The Fast And The Furious, which happened to be based on the underworld of illegal street racing and custom cars.
Paul Walker had a love for custom cars long before he starred in the franchise, but after the movies had taken off, Paul Walker took to creating a one of a kind collection of cars that really reflected his personality.
Paul Walker's collection of vehicles ranged from the common cars that he was in love with such as the Crown Victoria, to rare vehicles such as his famous R34 Skyline. Paul Walker enjoyed quite the success in the automotive world, and the majority of his success came from acting in the movie franchise.
The vehicle collection was auctioned off after the stars tragic accident involving a Porsche supercar, and the sheer combination of rarity and performance is what has made Paul Walker's car collection of the most well recognized in the world. We are going to be taking a look at some of the most notorious cars that Paul Walker has ever been seen driving.
When you take a look at Paul Walker's car collection there is no doubt that the actor loved imports, but did you know that he also loved muscle cars as well? The Shelby GT350SR is another notable addition to his collection, which actually happens to be a clone of the car that was featured in Gone In Sixty Seconds.
Everything about the Shelby GT350SR is legendary, and we like what the car has to offer. The Shelby GT350SR defined the Ford Mustang just as the Copa Camaro defined the GM brand, and we are fans of both models.
Perhaps the one truck that needs no introduction, the Ford F-150 Lightning was a revolutionary model for Ford in many aspects and continues to live on as a highly sought after collector item that also just happens to be fun to drive.
Paul Walker owned an original Ford F-150 Lightning, which also happened to be the vehicle that the actor drove in the first installment of The Fast And The Furious. When it comes to a fun to drive the truck that will get the job done and leave a smile on your face, the Ford F-150 Lightning is definitely it.
Another notable and quite legendary muscle car in Paul Walker's collection is the Saleen S7, which was featured in quite a few movies as well as being notable for its high price tag. This was one of the many cars that Paul Walker had sought out to add to his collection, and we have to say that we are quite impressed with everything that this notable muscle car has to offer.
The Saleen S7 will go down as one of the fastest production cars that ever hit the market, and we can't blame Paul for wanting to add one to his collection.
Then there was this, the one car that Paul Walker had become a huge fan of after the original Fast And The Furious movie, and that was the 98 Toyota Supra W-sport R. For a long period of time the Toyota Supra of the nineties was a big-time sleeper car, and the '98 Toyota Supra W-sport R is perhaps one of the funniest to drive and also most notable models.
While not the orange one that was featured in the original movie, Paul Walker still had a pretty clean Supra nonetheless.
Having been a fan of the Nissan Skyline models for some time, there is no wonder why Paul Walker wouldn’t venture off into other Nissan models, and he did just that with the Nissan 370Z.
It is a lightweight and fun to drive the car, the 370Z is a true incarnation of the original Z car that has made Nissan famous after all of these years. We love everything that the 09 Nissan 370Z has to offer, and of course, Paul had a clean version of the car that really set off his car collection, to say the least.
There is nothing that is more fun to drive than a Porsche, and although Paul Walker was a huge fan of the imports he also had a soft spot for the Porsche brand. So much so that he ended up purchasing a 2011 Porsche GT3 RS, which just happens to be one of the most highly sought after Porsche models around.
Everything about the car is a pure work of art, and for the most part, you can’t go wrong with the sheer driving characteristics and beauty that a Porsche has to offer.
When it comes to one of the most famous import vehicles in the world, the 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 has truly made its mark on the automotive world, and we have to say that the car is truly an impressive one. Paul Walker was so impressed with the legendary Nissan model that he actually owned more than one, which is why the actor had no problem driving one in most of his Fast And The Furious appearances.
The 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 is a combination of style and the performance that Nissan has become notable for in the aftermarket community.
Another notable Skyline in Paul Walker's collection is a true powerhouse that the star would often take out on the track, and that is the R34 Nissan Skyline 1000 BHP. You’d think something that was so powerful might be a little bit intimidating, but to Paul Walker, this powerful sports car was a walk in the park.
The man had a true love and respect for the import scene and the automotive industry in general, and his R34 Nissan Skyline 1000 BHP was a true testament to his love for the legendary Nissan models that are just making their way onto domestic shores.
The Mitsubishi brand, in general, has always been known for having extensive and fun to drive imports, and that is really how the brand has made its bread and butter. But, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo is a truly legendary car that has gone head to head with some of the fastest cars in the world.
Paul Walker is the proud owner of an original model, and his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo is perhaps one of the cleanest examples of the car that is currently on the road.
One of the most famous cars in Paul Walker's collection is also one of the most common vehicles as well, and that is the Ford Crown Victoria. Paul Walker owned an original 2006 model, which also happened to be sold at his estate auction.
The Ford Crown Victoria is one of the most reliable and also surprisingly fun to drive cars in the world, and you see them just about everywhere. Paul’s model was remarkably stock, which even in the stock form the Crown Victoria is fun to drive and a very powerful sedan.
Although Paul Walker is famous for riding around in his red Ford F-150 Lightning, he was also the owner of an original and well taken care of 2004 GMC Sierra. Nothing really stands out about the truck from a custom perspective, but the 2004 model is one of the more desirable Sierra models with the standard 5.3L Vortec motor.
It's not uncommon to find a 2004 GMC Sierra with very high mileage that is still in perfect running condition, and Paul Walker's model was one of the more desirable ones for sure.
BMW is known for being the ultimate driving machine, and one of the more notable models is the 1995 M3, which has been increasing in popularity quite well over the last decade.
Paul Walker actually owns two of these models, which with the naturally aspirated engine is fun to drive and a lightweight vehicle that will give owners a rewarding driving experience like no other. We like everything that the 1995 BMW M3 Coupe has to offer, and we are glad that Paul decided to keep his vehicles in original condition instead of customizing it.
Another car that is in Paul Walker's collection is the 1995 BMW M3 Sedan, which is home to one of the most rev-happy engines that BMW has ever put into a car. These variations are becoming harder to find as more and more enthusiasts try to get the older BMW models before they disappear.
Although Paul Walker was a big import guy he still managed to find love for the BMW models as well, and we are happy to take a look at some of these extremely clean and original examples.
Who hasn’t seen a Ford Bronco right? And and the nineties version is famous for many different reasons, including the fact that O.J. Simpson was the famous driver of one. Paul Walker had an original model which he owned long before his fame and fortune.
Even in a stock configuration, the 1995 Ford Bronco is a winning combination of off-road performance and reliability, and this was also one of the last full-size SUV models with a removable top, which made the Bronco quite unique and fun to drive.
The car that is responsible for sparking the love for a lot of enthusiasts - it is the 1999 Honda Civic SI, which was fun to drive and quite the stylish Econo-bucket that had a rev happy engine and a stylish paint job.
The 1999 Honda Civic SI that is owned by Paul Walker had a few notable aftermarket features such as a cold air intake - for the most part, the car is original, and that is important when it comes to a well-known car such as the Civic SI.
Another notable import in Paul's collection was the Acura Integra Type R, which over the years has become a very hot commodity. The Acura Integra Type R had one of the best engines to ever be placed in a Honda, and the notable body styling and comfortable interior made the car an extremely popular model.
Paul Walker took pride in his Acura Integra Type R, and this was one of the more original cars in his notable collection that was sold. We can only imagine how much fun Paul must have had driving his Integra.
Remember the green Eclipse in the Fast And The Furious movie that got set on fire? Well, Paul Walker actually owned one of these in real life, and he was a huge fan of the car. The 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSR is fun to drive and a lightweight compact car.
During the nineties, the Mitsubishi Eclipse really hit its prime and was the car that kept the Mitsubishi Motor Company alive, and we like everything that the model has to offer. Paul Walker kept his model in original condition, and this is a real tuner car if there was one.
Alongside his Mitsubishi Eclipse GSR, Paul Walker was also the proud owner of a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder. This was a car that actually became quite popular with consumers at a time when SUV models were ruling the automotive industry.
The 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder took the already popular design and improved upon it before the next generation of Eclipse hit the market. For the most part, the Spyder will go down as one of the best cars that Mitsubishi has ever put forward.
The thing that was cool about Paul Walker's love for the automotive industry was that he didn’t just stay a fan of one specific car, instead, the actor had a love for all vehicles and his extensive collection is actually a mirror of that and how his personality was.
The 2000 Audi S4 Quattro is a fine piece of automotive history that really builds on the already impressive Audi brand and adds to it with a performance-oriented sedan that will bring a smile to any automotive enthusiasts face.
Competing directly against the Mitsubishi Eclipse during its heyday, the 1999 Toyota Celica was a valiant attempt for Toyota to try and bring younger shoppers into their showrooms, and for the most part, the car managed to sell quite well early on in its life.
While not turbo powered like the Eclipse, the 1999 Toyota Celica was still fun to drive so it's no surprise that Paul Walker managed to get one in his collection. While the car will never be a showstopper like the Eclipse was, we still have a love for the sporty little Toyota.
