Held in Chelmsford, the festival was organised by Paul Walker’s young brother Cody in memory of the iconic actor.

More than 10,000 people attended the car show to get a glimpse at some of the world’s best motors, including Lamborghinis, Mustangs and Bentleys.

Rev heads even got the chance to admire motors used in the Fast and Furious franchise and other films, including Gone in 60 Seconds and Bullitt.

One of the most popular attractions was actor Vin Diesel’s custom 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum.

Paul died when a car he was a passenger in smashed into a tree in Los Angeles in 2013.

Following his death, Cody and his middle brother Caleb Walker spent three months filming for Furious 7, finishing the remaining scenes that Paul couldn’t.

Tyrese Gibson, who starred alongside Paul in the film series, and Cody were both swarmed by fans for a photo at the event.

Even the police got into the celebrations, with local officers dancing on stage with the two actors.

Cody Walker said: “Thank you UK for showing how much you love and support the cars, the Fast Furious Franchise and Paul Walker and his foundation.

“10,000 people came out to have fun for a great cause and we appreciate the warm and fun welcome from all the fans.”

Cody revealed last week to the Sun he misses Paul every day, but is determined to carry on his legacy.
