Paul Walker was an actor, but he was also a well-known gearhead. And like his best-known role, Fast and Furious main character Brian O'Connor, Walker's enthusiast tendencies manifested as a love for the Nissan Skyline GT-R. Over the course of the six Fast and Furious films O'Connor featured in, he drove Skylines or R35 GT-Rs in all but one, a fact that was almost certainly inspired by Walker's love of the iconic sports car.

Now, GTChannel has uncovered allegedly lost video of the late star visiting legendary Japanese GT-R tuner, Mine's. Like the GT-R itself, that name will likely be familiar to US enthusiasts thanks to its prominent placement in the Gran Turismo racing series. In the video, Walker takes the wheel of a Mine's-modified R35 GT-R and reacts much as any car enthusiast would to a 600-horsepower, all-wheel-drive, road-going rocket – with wide eyes and a mile-wide smile.

You can check out the video up top, direct from GTChannel's YouTube profile. All proceeds from the video's views will go to the Paul Walker Foundation. You can also make a direct donation to the charity at its website.
