Talk about ghoulish - sunglasses said to be those that Paul Walker was wearing when he died are being sold at auction.

The Fast and the Furious star died at the age of 40 in a car accident last year.

And now BidAmi.com claim they are selling articles found at the scene of his death, including sunglasses and crash debris.

These soiled Maui Jim sunglasses supposedly worn by Paul Walker when he died are being auctioned off on the internet.

“I felt like I should do something,” BidAmi.com acquisition specialist Kieta told Celebuzz. 

“I didn’t want it to be morbid.”

The site claims the unnamed man picked up the Maui Jim sunglasses embedded in a charred ivy brush after police cleared the crash scene. But when he attempted to give the spectacles to authorities and Paul’s family, no one was interested in acquiring the item.

While there's no proof the sunglasses were actually Walker's, the site claims they look the same as sunglasses Walker was wearing in a video taken shortly before the crash.

“He said he tried to contact [the actor’s family] about the glasses and they weren’t really interested,” she explained. “Whether or not he’s telling me the truth, I don’t know. He seemed sincere.”

Kieta claims a portion of the proceeds from the sale will go to charity, and she’ll donate to Paul’s non-profit Reach Out Worldwide if requested.

“Bidding for the higher good is my mantra," she said. 

"With every tragedy we can make it something positive. I want it to be for good. It’s about honouring Paul and not dishonouring him.”

Paul and his friend Roger Rodas, 38, were travelling together from a charity event in a Porsche Carrera GT in Santa Clarita, California on November 30 when the car veered off the road before slamming into a pole and exploding in flames.

It was recently reported he left his entire fortune to his 15-year-old daughter Meadow.
