The late Paul Walker had a ridiculously impressive collection of cars. Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen a number of them change hands on the interweb, but this might just be the best one yet.

That interior is stunning in its functionality, too, with leather seats, a five-speed manual gearbox, and a Blaupunkt cassette player. Lovely.

The current owner has apparently only put 80km on this thing, and the M1 only has 6,800km on its odometer in total after 40 years on this earth. How much do we think it’ll go for, folks?
