Paul Walker’s Fast & Furious GT-R For Sale

If you are a fan of famous movie cars, the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 from Fast & Furious is currently for sale in Germany. This car is selling for 1,000,000 euros, which is nearly $1.4 million in American dollars.

Check out this video from GT-Spirit that highlights the features of this GT-R:




This Nissan Skyline has received heavy updates, and features a 2.6-liter twin-turbocharged straight-6 cylinder engine that gets 543 HP and operates on 4-wheel drive.

This GT-R was highlighted as a major part of the fourth Fast & Furious movie, in which Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner used the car to cross the American border into Mexico. This car’s previous owner purchased it at a private sale in New York City several years ago. The price of this bright blue GT-R was not originally this high. The price tag skyrocketed after the recent death of Paul Walker, and it is now more than double its original price.

In light of Paul Walker’s tragic death, Universal Studios has pushed the release date of the most recent Fast & Furious (Fast & Furious 7) movie off until April 2015. This 9-month delay is an effort to rework existing footage available with Walker, as his death occurred only halfway through the filming process of this shooting.

Out of respect for his death, Universal also plans to donate proceeds from the DVD release of Fast & Furious 6 to Walker’s non-profit, Reach Out WorldWide, “a network of professionals with first responder skill-sets who augment local expertise when natural disasters strike, in order to accelerate relief efforts.”

If you’re in the market for a street rod like the Nissan Skyline, take care on the roads, and remember to make sure it’s protected with collector car insurance. Talk to the friendly staff at Classic Auto for more information on customized policies to fit your lifestyle and your budget.
