For 2.33 million dollars ... selling 21 cars and motorcycles to the late star Paul Walker

Twenty-one cars owned by the late actor Paul Walker, who starred in the popular movie "Fast and Furious", sold for $ 2.33 million (roughly Rs. 16.55 crores) during an enthusiastic auction at an annual auto auction in Arizona.

The group Walker collected had strong results at the week-long Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale, with Alpine White 1995 BMW M3 Lightweight achieving its single highest price of $ 385,000 on the last day of sales on Saturday. It was one of five BMW lightweight cars, of which 126 were produced, sold at auction.

Walker, famous for his passion for cars, died at the age of forty in a Porsche Carrera GT car accident while sitting next to her driver and friend Roger Rodas, who also died in the accident, in November 2013.

The car hit several trees and a pillar in Santa Clarita, near Los Angeles, and the cause of the accident was traced to excessive speed.

"People were paying a premium for his cars," said Jonathan Klinger, a spokesman for the Michigan-based classic car insurance company. "With these prices, it seems that the late actor will become Newman later for the famous car collector."

Klinger said that star power does not always generate high bids, but the "Walker" mix of celebrities and their passion for the automobile industry has made vehicles a must for car collectors.

Among the gang favorites is the 2009 Nissan 370Z, which appeared in the movie "Fast Five". The low-mileage car that sold on Thursday for $ 105,600, the first expensive price that bought the 370Z at an auction.

Auction officials said that the 2013 unprecedented Ford Boss 302S rider was delivered to Walker as a gift by another orange car and put it in stock for sale at $ 95,700 on Saturday.
