10. Nissan 350Z from Tokyo Drift

The Z car usually comes with a simple drivetrain – torquey six-cylinder engine mounted in the nose and power sent to the rear. The 2003 350Z is no different, offering the ubiquitous 3.5-liter VQ35DE V-6 for inspiration. Equipped with CVTCS (Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System), this unit makes 287 horsepower and 274 pound-feet of torque.
Not bad for a naturally aspirated powerplant. This car, however, adds a double heaping of turbocharged boost, elevating output to 430 horsepower and 420 pound-feet-of torque.
A team of specialists tested the car and estimated that it makes a 0-to-60 time of 5.7 seconds and a run through the quarter mile in 13.2 seconds at 114.8 mph. This in addition to a better launch control will make it possible to break into the 12s for the 1,320. So to put it context, the customized Z is several tenths quicker to 60 and about 1.5 seconds quicker in the quarter mile than a standard Z.
So the high price - $232,725 to be more precise – is really understandable taking into account that car appeared in the third ‘Fast & Furious’ in addition to the extensive list of extras it features. The Z is even more expensive than the Toyota Supra that Paul Walker raced with during the first ‘Fast & Furious’, which was put on sale for only $185,000. But then Walker’s car was more of a set piece, while what counts here more is the real deal under the hood.

11. R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R

A number of GT-Rs were also prepped for the movie, and while most of them were completely wrecked, Paul Walker’s hero R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R is listed as the only that’s fully working. The R34 Skyline is geared with the legendary RB26 twin-turbocharged straight-six engine, driving all four wheels to the tune of 550 horsepower. Its cracking power comes with universal kitted-out Walker’s GT-R with a Turbonetics intercooler, Volk racing wheels, Nismo NE-1 exhaust and lowering springs body mods, a custom head-up display, etc.

Having in mind the ability of Skyline to handle enormous amounts of power, you will be rowing the gears with over 800 or 900 horsepower on tap. The mileage of the car is just above 3,700. No wonder why that beast has been appraised for between €750,000 and €5,000,000 (or around $817,000 to $5.4 million at today’s rates). And then the old saying ‘if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it’ feels more than appropriate to mention here.
