Paul Walker's Impressive Car Collection Includes Rare BMWs

We've all seen them on the big screen, driving some of the most appetizing cars in the world but what do they drive in real life? Few actors really measure up to the audience's expectations when it comes to automobiles.

When it comes to the cast of Fast and Furious, things should be as expected: everyone has at least 5 cars. That's not the case though. Actually, from the entire cast, only Paul Walker (the guy who played Brian) and Ludacris are known to have more than one car.

If Luda has mostly contemporary American cars, Paul has a more distinguished taste. His collection includes a mix of Japanese, English and German cars like: Ford Escort Cosworth, Nissan Skyline R33, Toyota Supra, Datsun 240Z, a BMW E36 M3 LTW (lightweight) and a 1974 BMW 2002 Touring.

The last two are of great importance to us because they are both iconic vehicles in their own way. The 2002 was the one that cleared the road for the first 3 Series, whilst the LTW M3 is one of the best handling cars BMW ever made, a proper collectable for any drifting and racing enthusiast.

Furthermore, Paul claims that his Touring model is actually full of Alpina parts, almost becoming an Alpina vehicle over the years. That's even more impressive as to the regular Joe in the US, the name Alpina doesn't mean anything.
