So the other day we brought you the news of one of the most iconic JDM cars on the planet going up for sale, a minter of a 2000 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R in Bayside Blue, and while they’re fetching some pretty mad prices these days, this particular one was set to bring in a whole lot more money than usual thanks to being previously owned by the actor Paul Walker. The car even starred in the movie franchise too. So for a die-hard JDM fan this thing is tantamount to the motoring version of the Holy Grail. The GT-R rolls on Volk Racing RE30 wheels in 19 inches, has a Nismo NE-1 exhaust, a custom rear roll cage, a custom dashboard-mounted PC, FIA-approved OMP racing seats (still set in Paul Walker's seating position), a Turbonetics front-mount cooler, Nismo lowering springs, an ARC titanium strut brace, a Rotora brake conversion with 6-pot calipers, a Nismo Version II bumper with side skirts, an East Bear hood, a Momo Sport Alcantara steering wheel, Nismo V-Spec pedals, an MFD Xenarc Display unit with gauges programmed to the car's ECU, and a built RB26. The sale comes with a copy of the Universal Pictures rental contract for the car as well as all the relevant provenance to prove its authenticity. The famous Nissan recently went up for auction online with Bonhams on the 28th April, and it was tipped to bring in a new record for one of these JDM icons.
Take a look at the YouTube video that shows you just how cool Paul Walker was by means of his amazing car collection that's packed with all the best JDM goodness. This video gives a little background on the man and his cars and it should explain why the actor's cars fetch so much money when they find themselves on the market again and it also makes us question our life choices because just one iconic JDM car is out of our reach. Nevermind one with such an amazing provenance: Paul Walker's Secret Car Collection was INSANE | Ideal
