This new infographic courtesy of OSV looks at the coolest cars from the Fast and Furious franchise. There are numerous things needed to make a Fast and Furious film: high-octane stunts, several of your favourite F&F characters, a villain or two and of course a copious supply of action.
But most of all the films need sleek, mean racing machines in a variety of colours and loaded with modifications. The new infographic shown below from the car leasing and purchasing specialists looks at 12 of the most iconic vehicles in the history of Fast and Furious, from the Dodge Charger to the Mitsubishi Eclipse, to the Honda S2000.
OSV’s picks have been listed below. Is your favourite in there?
The Dodge Charger has to be one of the most recognised vehicles from the franchise. Built by Dom and his Father, the car is famed for its incredible power at 900 hp and holding a record ¼ mile time at just nine seconds flat.
Nissan Skyline GT-R R34
Brian drives this particular Skyline in 2 Fast 2 Furious. He uses the vehicle to participate in Tej Parker’s street race.
Mitsubishi Eclipse GS
Possibly the most iconic car from the franchise thanks to its lime green body kit and neon underbody lighting. This car was driven by Brian and was used to evade police and rescue Dom in The Fast and The Furious.
The black NSX driven by Dom’s sister Mia has red leather seats, rear-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission.
The vehicle of choice for The Fast and The Furious villain Johnny Tran and sometimes girlfriend of Tej Parker, Suki.
Toyota Supra MK IV
After the destruction of the Eclipse in The Fast and the Furious Brian receives a rusty Toyota Supra MK IV from a junkyard. After its restoration, the car is driven by Brian and Mia to rescue Vince and is later abandoned by Dom (who was given the car by Brian in order to escape).
Ford Mustang Fastback
Previously owned by Major Boswell, Sean and his friends restore the Mustang in Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and used it to race against Takashi in a drift race. After several close calls, Sean is able to win after Takashi’s car drives off the edge of the mountain.
Driven by Han Seoul-Oh in Tokyo Drift, the car and driver meet a sticky end after a crash with Deckard Shaw. Sean Boswell also briefly drives this particular Mazda RX-7.
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII
Inspired by the lime green eclipse, the Lancer was a key car for Brian in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Brian gets hold of the Lancer after Roman claims the Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GTS.
Plymouth Road Runner
The Plymouth Road Runner appears briefly in Fast & Furious, driven by Letty Ortiz. The car makes a reappearance in Fast and Furious 6 in a flashback to how Letty died.
Nissan GT-R R35
