Paul Walker’s BMW M1 to be auctionedJanuary 24, 2021
A few days later, a car auction starts, which will sell a “charged” BMW M1 coupe, which belonged to the famous Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker. The starting price is $ 350,000
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, BMW sold a unique and rare model, the mid-engined BMW M1. Production of the high-performance car lasted four model years, during which only 453 such cars were produced, making it a highly sought-after and expensive item for collectors. It is such a car, which belonged to the famous actor Paul Walker, will be sold at a foreign auction.
The car was part of the AE Performance Collection, owned by Walker in partnership with Roger Rodas.
However, his connections with Walker, the actor who played Brian O’Connor in the Fast and the Furious franchise, will undoubtedly spark an increased interest in the car. The M1 for sale is a 1980 model that has been modified. Updates included a custom exhaust, all-leather seat upholstery, custom BMW Motorsport livery and BBS three-piece wheels.
The BMW M1 is powered by a 3.5-liter inline-six engine that produces 277 horsepower from the factory. That said, the AHG-tuned cars that this M1 is are putting out 350bhp. thanks to a new exhaust system and other engine modifications. The motor works with a five-speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential.
The car currently has about 6,800 kilometers on its odometer and is in exceptional condition. It’s also surprisingly well equipped for an early mid-engined supercar with air conditioning, power seats, and an audio system. At the time of this writing, the starting price of the car was $ 350,000, although the car will likely sell for a much higher price. Nine days are left before the auction, and previous copies of the BMW M1 have been sold several times for over $ 500,000
