    Paul Walker’s 550bhp Skyline R34 GTR is for sale.. And I want it!
    With Paul walker’s passing a year ago, almost to the day, A car driven by the late, great legend himself (RIP brother) in Fast and Furious 4 has popped up for sale. And, as you’d expect, it’s a monster. Walker, who sadly passed away late last year, drove this heavily modified R34 Nissan Skyline in the fourth instalment of the epically popular movie franchise.


    It’s one of nine Skylines used for the film, but is the only actual Skyline – the others, we’re reliably informed, were all stunt cars fitted on VW Beetle chassis’ with plastic bodies. Yep, that actually happened. We have an article about that coming up shortly.

    A little bit about this monster.. Underneath the hood sits a twin-turbo 2.6-litre straight-six engine with a giant front mounted intercooler.
    This RB26 sends around 550bhp to all four wheels via a six-speed Getrag transmission. We’re told that a simple software mod could see that power rocket up to over 1000bhp.

    Then there’s a whole suite of goodies to get your inner Max Power fiend excited: Nismo lowering springs, a custom roll cage, an ARC titanium strut tower bar, Volk racing wheels, big brake conversion, a Nismo bumper and side skirts, no rear seats, a Momo Alcantara steering wheel, Nismo pedals and a custom head up display for a dash-mounted PC.

    Oh, there’s also a Nismo exhaust, many gauges, custom seats and a “40-page appraisal from a well known accredited appraisal company documenting the build and movie car history, indicating a value range between €750,000 and €5,000,000.”

    Yep – the car is estimated to sell for at least $1,000,000, but considering it’s covered just 6,000km, we suspect it’ll be significantly higher. Could it possibly reach the estimated upper range of that price tag of $5,000,000?

    How much would you pay for such an iconic vehicle?

    I had an option to trade my 70 convertible for one a couple years back.
