We as petrol heads grew on car movies and epic car chases in epic movies. The magic of driving a car fast through a crowded street with cops on your tail never failed to impress us. The one movie franchise that brought action cars, cops, stunts and cheesy one-liners together is the Fast and Furious franchise. So get ready and strap yourself in that ‘ejecto seato cuz ‘and lets blast off the top ten cars from the Fast and Furious franchise –
1970 Dodge Charger
One of the most iconic cars from the first movie. The car that we will always associate Dominic Torreto with. The car that supposedly made 900 bhp to the wheels and pulled off burnout wheelies. This car was seen first in a drag race with Brian O’Connor’s Supra and then in the 4th and 5th film. This car also upped the cool factor for muscle cars in the movies.
Nissan Skyline GTR (R34)
This is the car that came in the second movie where imports were shaming American muscle. The R34 GTR not only enters a midnight race and wins but also jumps a bridge in the process. The car was also the part of the famous question asked by Brain in the 4th film to an FBI officer – “Gallo12” or “Gallo 24”.
RB Swapped 1967 Mustang
Hate it or Love it! This Mustang was the definition of – ‘Built Not Brought’. The car was the highlight of the movie with the final drift race down the mountain the Drift King in his Nissan 350Z. The car was being powered by the RB26 inline-six engine from a Nissan GTR. The noise of the twin turbo high revving engine sounded wicked and weird to some coming out of the back of a classic Mustang. In the end, this was a very unique build.
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
One of the most charming muscle cars of the series. This car stood out like a prize fighter at a boxing ring. Finished in matt black with the car was ultimately destroyed by Dom who crashed it to take out the baddie in the end.
1969 Dodge Charger Daytona
The car that was not robbed or built by the crew but was bought at an expensive auction in London by Ludacris. The Charger Daytona was famous for NASCAR wins where it was so good that it was actually banned in the end. The car in the film was actually a regular charger made to look like a Daytona because the film director thought the original one with the long nose looked very ugly. Weird but true.
The car was seen in the sixth move like the above Daytona and both of them raced each other on the streets of London. The car in the movie was driven by Letty who did not remember anything but still had a British sports car with a Chrysler V8 shoved in it.
Corvette Grand Sport
This car really did not get a lot of screen time but was cool. It was supposed to be the car on which Dom and Brian get away but when their robbing buddies turned on them the car had to be jumped off a cliff into a lake. Still a very cool car nonetheless.
F1 meets Mad Max. These ramp cars are seen in the sixth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. The cars are the ultimate track/traffic vehicle’s. Somebody is not moving over? Flip them off the road. These cars ran circles around the stock BMW M5s provided by the Rock to Dom’s crew and ended up creating a whole lot of havoc.
Toyota Supra Mark 4
The car in which Brian started and ended his journey in Fast and Furious. We saw Paul Walker in the first movie race Dom in this car against a Charger and cruise at the end of the 7th movie in a white Supra to along with Dom. The car is very symbolic for enthusiasts everywhere.
1987 Buick GNX
Last but not least. The most underrated but coolest car in the author’s opinion. Buick only sold 1000 of these cars ever. So they are super rare. The car was seen at the start of the 4th movie where Dom and Letty are stealing fuel tankers in South America. The image of a black GNX power sliding under a burning petrol tanker is the coolest start to any movie.
