A very rare 2001 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II is for sale in the U.S. The car itself is collectible, but this particular sports car is also valuable because it was owned by Hollywood actor Paul Walker. 

The Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II from Paul Walker's collection is an exact replica of the car that was filmed in the first part of "Fast and the Furious. The sports car has been tuned and received a straight-through exhaust and adaptive dampers. The Nissan was advertised for sale on the Hive Auto Group's website, but its value is not specified.

However, it's not hard to guess that the Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II is worth at least half a million dollars. After the tragic death of the "Fast and the Furious" star in 2013, collectors went on a real hunt for his cars. Last year, for example, his tuned Toyota Supra sold for $500,000. The V-Spec II is even rarer than the Supra, making it a highly valuable car. Its connection to the "Fast and the Furious" franchise only adds to its value, making it a desirable car for collectors and fans of the movie series. 

With such a high price tag, the V-Spec II is definitely not your everyday car. But for collectors and die-hard "Fast and the Furious" fans, it's a piece of movie history that's worth every penny.

Not only that, it was a blue Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II that Walker's character Brian O'Conner drove in the very first part of "Fast and the Furious. The actor liked the car and bought one just like it.

In addition, this Paul Walker's car was tuned - it received a sport straight-through exhaust and adaptive shock absorbers. A Momo steering wheel and a Nismo gearshift lever appeared in the interior. Despite all the changes, the VIN number of the car remained unchanged.

V-Spec II is a limited edition track version of the Nissan Skyline GT-R34. A total of 1,855 of these coupes were produced. The car was lightened due to the carbon fiber hood and refusal of air conditioning, and it also has a seriously upgraded suspension and increased brakes. Under the hood of Nissan Skyline, GT-R V-Spec II hides a 2,6-liter turbo-six. On the paper, it is specified as 280 hp, though in reality, it is closer to 330 hp. The Nissan Skyline V-Spec II was truly a race car for the street.
