Xbox has designed a custom Xbox One S console modeled after Paul Walker’s first car from The Fast and The Furious to commemorate the success of the series.
“I loved the idea of Xbox going back to when it first started for Paul and The Fast and the Furious with this awesome custom console design,” said Cody Walker, Paul’s brother and CEO of Reach Out WorldWide.
“It’s so important for the work of ROWW to continue and we’re so appreciative of Xbox designing this Xbox One S and raffling it off as part of our Game4Paul livestream.”
The unique console has the same bright green and blue design as the car used in the opening scene and in the first race between Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. The console has also been signed by some of Walker’s closest friends and castmates, including Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson and Cody Walker.
“Our Xbox family is so proud to play a very small part in remembering Paul’s great career and work with ROWW,” said Aaron Greenberg, GM of Games Marketing at Xbox.
“The team put a lot of thought into this custom console design and we are thrilled to pay homage to Paul’s unforgettable Fast and Furious character.”
One fan will have the opportunity to own the custom console as it will be raffled off on Sunday, October 1 during the livestream charity event, Game4Paul. All proceeds raised by the console auction will go directly back to ROWW, a disaster relief nonprofit, founded by Paul Walker, with the purpose of providing quick and efficient relief to those who need it most in the chaos after a natural disaster. Raffle tickets can be purchased now at www.game4paul.com.
Fans who want to take part in the raffle or anyone looking to support ROWW can contribute and watch Game4Paul live at www.game4paul.com, and through Mixer Xbox Channel, Twitch Xbox Channel and Cody Walker’s Facebook page.
