It hasn't taken long for someone to try and exploit the death of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker.

A German claiming to own the only Nissan Skyline R-34 generation GT-R to make it through The Fast and the Furious 4 has tripled his asking price since Walker was killed in a Los Angeles car crash on November 30.

The owner had been asking a cool €300,000 (NZ$499,964) but has since increased that to a cool €1 million (NZ$1.66 million).

Autoblog.com reports the car, and seven others, arrived in the US for filming minus engines so they could be classified as kit cars to get around US laws under which the cars are illegal for street use. The eight cars then had engines installed but seven were written off during filming, leaving just this car.

The car was forced out of the US following a crackdown by authorities on importers with around 50 GT-Rs seized and owners were reportedly told to export them or they faced having them destroyed.

This car was exported and turned up recently in Germany with its initial NZ$499,964 price tag before Walker's untimely death.
