The profiteering from Paul Walker’s death has begun.
A German car dealer is offering for sale what it claims is the Nissan sports car driven by Walker in "Fast and Furious 4" for 1 million euros, approximately $1.37 million.
According to GT Spirit, the car was listed prior to Walker’s fatal crash, but the price has more than doubled in the weeks since.
The blue Skyline GT-R was heavily modified for use in the film, and currently sports a 2.6-liter twin turbocharged inline-6-cylinder engine with about 543 hp, 6-speed manual transmission, all-wheel-drive and a laundry list of additional performance equipment.
The seller says it comes with the original lease from Universal Pictures from when it was used in the film.
Motoramic reports that the car is the only one of eight prepared for the movie that survived filming unscathed, but was forcibly exported from the U.S. after it was found to be in violation of U.S. import regulations.
If sold, it won’t be the first car or piece of movie memorabilia that’s earned a premium price thanks to its association with a deceased star, but it will certainly be one of the quickest to do so.
