With the recent release of Fast & Furious 6, we’ve decided to relive the Fast & Furious action-packed journey, and race through our favourite cars from The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious and Fast Five.
1996 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE
With a horsepower of 140 @ 6000 RPM and a value of £2625, way more than most cars have the 1996 Mitsubushi Eclipse is the classic car, perfect for The Fast and The Furious. We first see this baby screaming around the parking lot at Dodger Stadium as the characters practice the drag racing skills we all wish we had. Bring on the modifications as we see the characters scrap the cars current system and replace it with a nitrous oxide one for that ultimate thrill ride.
1970 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SS
The Chevrolet Chevelle SS, predates the time of amalgamation between Daewoo and Chevrolet. A classic in its own right, the Chevy featured in the original Fast and Furious movie and is making a comeback in the latest edition of the instalment.
1969 CHEVROLET CAMARO YENKO SYC (Super Yenko Car)
Guess this muscle car. 1969, Chevrolet Camaro is a timeless classic that car fans to this day still lust over. Used in the original film, this is the dream car that helped to define the 70’s. This sure is a super car.
1967 FORD MUSTANG FASTBACK (NISMO)
Another defining car of the 20th Century the 1967 Ford Mustang, like the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro can also be deemed a timeless classic shown in both the original and Tokyo Drift. From the moment Sean’s father picked up this Mustang at the naval base, we were hooked.
2006 Nissan 350Z Roadster
A pricing range of between £5 and £30k, the Nissan Roadster is breath-taking in the Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift. Surprisingly during the Race Wars, real race cars and drivers came to participate in the iconic scene. Changes within the 2006 included an increasingly powerful and improved interior quality. Fun fact: the model was originally developed to be a convertible as well as a coupe.
2001 BMW M5
BMWs and Mercedes noticeably have a habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, becoming wrecked in the races (as cars and obstacles). The BMW M5 is no different when it appears in Fast and Furious, one of the more recent cars to show up in the Fast and the Furious instalments, the BMW certainly made its mark. Watch out as the more recent 2010 M5 is set to make an appearance in the latest instalment: The Fast and The Furious 6.
The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and Fast & Furious: The Complete Collection are available to own on DVD and Blu-ray™ now. Fast & Furious 6 is in cinemas now.
