The all-new Furious 8 is quickly becoming the biggest box office hit of 2017, but it’s one of the iconic cars from 2009′s Fast and Furious that has all of our attention this holiday weekend.
The Nissan GT-R that Paul Walker drove in the series’ fourth installment is up for sale online, after originally listing late last year, and as far as we can tell, it has yet to find a buyer. Given Paul Walker’s emotional send-off in Furious 7, however, that might not be the case for too long.
When Universal Pictures requested cars for the movie, a number of GT-Rs were built (and a few subsequently wrecked) for filming. However, this R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R is understood to be the one true fully functioning, Paul Walker behind-the-wheel ‘hero car’. It’s quite a brute. The R34 Skyline comes with the legendary RB26 twin-turbocharged straight-six engine, driving all four wheels to the tune of 550 horsepower.
That big power arrives in a big package, too. Universal kitted-out Walker’s GT-R with a Turbonetics intercooler, Nismo lowering springs, Volk racing wheels, Nismo NE-1 exhaust, body mods, a custom head-up display, and quite a lot more. Given the Skyline’s ability to handle ludicrous amounts of power, you could conceivably row your own gears just fine with over 800 or 900 horsepower on tap. Mileage? Stunningly, the car shows just more than 3,700.
As for the price, the old adage sticks: “if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.” The seller well relinquish the exact number to serious buyers, but the listing does note the car has been appraised for between €750,000 and €5,000,000 (or around $817,000 to $5.4 million at today’s rates).
