BMW M1 once owned by Paul Walker - $500k

453 examples of the BMW M1 were made, and this modified AHG Studie is even rarer. 53 cars would be built for racing. Ten road cars were modified by German BMW dealership AHG. Made to look like the racing M1s used in the Procar series, they received a comprehensive makeover.
The 3.5-liter straight-six engine produced 277 horsepower in a regular M1. AHG pushed this to 350 hp. A five-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential was standard. This M1 has covered 4,200 miles from new. It made $500k.
The modified M1 rarely come to auction. One appeared in 2015 and failed to change hands on a $650k high estimate.
