PHOENIX — Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. is known for bringing in some high-profile vehicles to its annual Scottsdale auction, and next year it is highlighting a collection from actor Paul Walker.

Walker, who starred in the hugely successful "The Fast and the Furious" film franchise, was an avid car collector until his death in 2013. The Barrett-Jackson auction, held Jan. 11-19, 2020, will feature 21 of Walker's cars crossing the block.

“We’re deeply honored to offer the amazing Paul Walker Collection at our 2020 Scottsdale Auction,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, in a statement. “Paul’s impact was immense through both his influence as an actor in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ movies and his philanthropic drive as the founder of Reach Out Worldwide.”

Among the cars being auctioned will be five versions of the 1995 BMW M3 E36 Lightweight. The German automaker released this variant for consumers who wanted to take their street cars racing. The five in Walker's collection are among only 120 made by BMW.
