Paul Walker’s Seven BMW Lightweight M3s Sold for a Combined $1.3 Million
Paul Walker’s collection was auctioned off at the 2020 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event, while he is most associated with Asian imports because of his role in the long-running street racing film franchise, Walker’s collection shows that his automotive interests were wide and varied. The highlight for collectors was a series of five white BMW M3 Lightweight Editions which all fetched huge winning bids. A gorgeous 1995 E36, with just 4,600 miles on the odometer, was the clear star of the lot, selling for $385,000. The other four M3s sold for between $220,000 to $258,500 apiece. Only 125 examples of the 240 hp two-door were ever made, and the five up for sale were the most to ever appear at a single auction. Two other M3s, one from 1991 and another from 1988, sold for $220,000 and $165,000, respectively.
