A SPORTS car driven by the late actor Paul Walker during the Fast & Furious film franchise is tipped to sell for £1million.
The American star drove the 2000 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R during Fast & Furious 4 (2009) and stood on its hood in one scene.
The 'Bayside blue' coloured vehicle was customised to Walker's personal specification, which is how it is offered for sale at auctioneers Bonhams, of London.
It has a 2.6 litre twin-turbo engine, bespoke dashboard and custom racing bucket seats which remain in Walker's seating position.
During filming, the car was raced through Los Angeles and for smuggling people over the Mexican border.
A Bonhams spokesperson said: "In its iconic Bayside Blue colour, this scene-stealing modern classic is unquestionably one of the most notable and covetable vehicles from the most celebrated automotive film franchise of all time.

"What's more, the timeless Nissan GT-R has seen an exponential rise in global interest and this is one of, if not the most significant example of the 'Godzilla' in the world, with an unmatched provenance.
"It is an instantly recognisable example of a timeless design, built to the precise personal specification of a most celebrated (and now sadly missed) true enthusiast.

"This is surely a don't miss opportunity for any Skyline enthusiast or a Fast & Furious fan."
Walker was killed in a car crash in Los Angeles in 2013.
The 40 year-old was the passenger in a Porsche which was speeding at over 100mph crashed into a tree and burst into flames.
He was in the process of filming Furious 7, so stand-ins finished his scenes.
Not only did the star play a car-obsessed racer, he was also a massive motorhead in real life.
When the star passed away he had an impressive collection of more than 30 vehicles, stored in a Valencia Warehouse.
Among the collection were classic Porsche and Ferrari sports cars, and seven BMW e35 M3 high-performance racers.
The sale of the 2000 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-Rtakes place on May 5.
