It's hard to believe, but it's been more than seven years since the popular "The Fast and the Furious"-Actor Paul Walker in a traffic accident on November 30, 2013 tragically in a red Porsche Carrera GT was killed. The memory of the great actor lives on through his films as well as his car collection, which is still extremely extensive today. Now another vehicle from the large collection of exotic automobiles that Paul Walker built during his lifetime is being auctioned off, namely a modified BMW M1 (Vin: WBS00000094301090). This one stands 10 days before expiration the auction with a highest bid of 350.000 US Dollars on the auction platform Bring a trailer. The bidding battle ends on February 1st, 2021 at 8 a.m.
very special example of the M1 series
While a BMW M1 is an extremely rare automobile anyway, it was not exclusive enough for Paul Walker during his lifetime to buy a model AHG M1 study equipment, of which only 10 copies were built, the one Mix from the production vehicle and the Procar racer represents. The model has a customized body and various technical Upgrades. The M1, the classic M design is painted, and over BBS wheels at that time set standards in super sports car construction. The vehicle is only unsuitable for California, as it cannot comply with the strict Californian emissions regulations, which only apply there. In our opinion, the very special M1 belongs in loving collectors' hands, which both the history of the vehicle and the life's work of Paul Walker appreciate. To head for a supercar meeting to possibly burn the baby, would be blasphemy in our eyes.
The interior is surprisingly comfortable.
At first you might think it's hardly possible, but in the narrow cockpit of the super sports car, which by the way was only produced around 460 times, there is both one Air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats as well as a Cassette radio from Blaupunkt. This almost turns an M1 into one Daily Driver, although of course it is too good for that, because as we have already mentioned above, such a vehicle belongs in the hands of a car enthusiast collector.
3,5-liter R6 with around 350 hp provides powerful propulsion.
The heart of the M1, which once belonged to Paul Walker, is a 3,5-liter R6 petrol engine without turbocharging, the round from 350 HP generated. In contrast to the basic version, the just from 277 HP that is a performance increase of almost 100 hp, which means the standard top speed of 265 km/h should be far exceeded. Unfortunately, we are happy with the information on torque, performance and top speed of the very special model can not be in front. But we're pretty sure that the car can compete with today's super athletes in terms of performance.
Our conclusion on this BMW M1:
Every solvent car collector and car fan can consider themselves lucky if they have the opportunity to take part in the bidding battle for such an automobile Klassiker to participate. The happy new owner of the car will certainly do everything possible to cherish and care for his newly acquired piece of jewelery in order to take care of the further one to be expected appreciation not to endanger.
