In recent years, the price of a Nissan Skyline GT-R has skyrocketed, particularly for the R34 model, which became popular due to its numerous appearances in the "Fast and Furious" franchise.

Now, an R34 Skyline GT-R is for sale. Paul Walker drove it in the fourth Fast & Furious movie, which came out in 2009, so it will probably fetch a lot of money. It will be sold at a Bonhams auction in Brussels, Belgium, from April 28 to May 5.
The car, a model from 2000, was imported into the United States for filming by the former Kaizo Industries. The company was able to get around import restrictions by labeling the car as a kit car and attaching its own VIN to it. For this particular import loophole, it had to be imported without an engine, so the engine here doesn't match the numbers.
The listing says that after the filming was over, the U.S. Border Force learned about the car's import and seized it. It was finally made available in 2012, and a customer in Germany, where it is now located, purchased it. Be that as it may, it was never enlisted for street use in Europe, and is being made available for purchase with its Kaizo construct plate and a formerly terminated Nevada title.
The filming involved a number of R34 Nissan Skylines, but only one of them was a GT-R; the others were lesser GT and GT-T models that had been modified to look like the hero car.
Walker, who owned multiple GT-Rs and was an avid GT-R fan, selected the specification, according to the listing. Walker is said to have requested modifications such as a Turbonetics front-mounted intercooler, Nismo lowering springs, an NE-1 exhaust, a roll cage, an ARC titanium strut tower bar, 19-inch Volk Racing RE30 wheels, a Rotora brake system with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers, and a Nismo Version II front bumper and side skirts in addition to selecting the signature Bayside Blue exterior.
Walker also chose to make changes inside the vehicle. These include a Momo steering wheel covered in Alcantara, OMP front seats with five-point harnesses, and a Windows PC connected to an MFD Xenarc display that generates the digital gauge readouts seen in the movie.
