This is very sad. RIP Paul. His loss is irreplacable in the FnF series. Feels like I lost a friend.

The reason I became a JDM and Skyline fan. I can't believe this has happened. There's absolutely nothing left of that Carrera. Its also incredibly ironic how he passed. The F&F series will never be the same now. Its just a bunch of brawny guys driving cars.. :/

Shocked to read about this. Always came across as a genuinely good guy even though I only knew him from his movies and from what I have been reading, he was an all round good guy. Can't believe this has happened.

RIP Paul. F&F will never be the same without you.

This is a saddening news.. Like most of you, assumed this news could/should be a hoax. He was strarred and accepted as one among the best through his F&F series. Globally acclaimed and accepted. Won many hearts, will hurt us all now and we will miss him. Safety is a question no matter how equipped the car be,there would be weak spots and this could be bang on it.

This is one crazy, crazy car. Terribly unfortunate accident, but looking at the damage, high speed was most definitely a contributor. These kind of automobiles don't warp just like that.

R.I.P. Paul Walker. You were responsible for tempting an entire generation into tuned cars

I was talking with my brother and he asked me if I had checked FB. I was like for what? Then he tells me Paul Walker has passed away! I was shocked and till this moment cannot believe he is no more. I am a die-hard FnF fan and it is an irreplacable loss for FnF and also in reality as Paul Walker was such a brilliant human being and actor.
Sadly,
-He was not driving the car.
-They were out on a joyride.
-Roger's son witnessed his dad dying infront of him.
-He was only 40.

RIP Paul Walker you Will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

Met him once in the airport in Boston while waiting for a flight almost 7+ years ago. Gentleman.
May the heavens give you faster cars to drive.
RIP Paul.
