Fast and Furious Cars in the world

Everyone expected The Fast and The Furious to be a popular movie, but no one expected it to spawn.
1. 1970 Dodge Charger
The recognizable 1970 Dodge Charger was Dom s car of choice in the early Fast and Furious movies. An irony really since this car is the only car that Dom admitted to being afraid to drive. Nevertheless it makes its way on our list due to its preeminence in the film and its overall Kick awesome retro looks. You can t deny, this charger is in charge.
2. 1973 F Bomb Camaro
A menacing looking hot rod, the F bomb is a 1,500 horsepower (you read that right), twin turbocharged monster of a car. This beast is so powerful that it comes with a handy dandy rear parachute. You know, for those times when you feel like breaking the sound barrier but need some assistance to stop. Sadly, the original is not used in the movie. Instead three replicas where used all equipped with 300 horsepower GM crate V8s.
3. 1970 Ford Escort RS1600
Another small car, the Ford Escort was a very common car in Europe. Introduced in 1968, the Escort was Ford s European small car which housed a four cylinder, overhead valve engine of 1.1 or 1.3 liter; needless to say, not a powerful vehicle. That is until the small rugged nimble car was introduced to a 1.6 liter twincam 16 valve BDA four cylinder engine in 1970. The BDA featured Ford s first four valve combustion chambers and transformed the Escort into a daredevil of a performance vehicle.
4. 1969 Dodge Daytona
In Fast and Furious 6, Vin Diesel lays the 1970 Dodge Charger keys down, and picks up the 1969 Dodge Daytona keys. The Irony behind this car selection is that the Daytona is aerodynamically enhanced version of the Charger which was created in order to compete in super speedways the likes of Talladega and Daytona. The evolution of design from one car to another seems to fit the evolution of Vin Diesel s character from a more rugged thug like criminal to a more refined and sophisticated leader. Needless to say though, this car is all sorts of beautiful with its striking fin and smooth yet strong curvature.
5. 1969 Chevy Big Red Camaro
An icon among icons in the hot rod world, Big Red made its first appearance in 1987 and took the hot rod world by storm. The muscular look of the car bespoke of its power; a power that was on full display the year of 1989 when it was taken to a closed section of Nevada highway. Here, Big Red absolutely destroyed the competition and expectations at that year s Silver State Classic open road race. Using its 800 horsepower Chevy big block V8 it sped through the 94 mile course in just 27 minutes and 54 seconds; an average of 197.99 mph with radar guns picking a top speed of 222 mph. The car used in the movie is the same car.
6. Custom built ramp car
What car can zooms around at impressive speeds and flips other cars to their demise? Why, this bare bone steel cage menace on four wheels of course. This go cart looking ramp car uses the same 6.2 liter LS3 V8 from the GM Performance catalog that McCarthy has installed in other vehicles for the film. Rated at 430 horsepower, this cage on wheels has more than enough juice to zoom around and leave the other cars spinning literally spinning in the air. As if the crazy cage design was not enough, the LS3 is mounted backward in the ramp car which sends power into a GM Turbo 400 three speed automatic transmission that in turn churns a Casale V drive gearset that s mounted just behind the driver. The V drive reverses the power flow so a small driveshaft can then feed the rear axle. Furious design? You bet.
7. 2010 Nissan GT R
The Stock Nissan GT R is already stunningly beautiful. But when you add a full BenSopra body kit which comes with the dugout fenders and strakes; doors that have been replaced with Seibon Dry Carbon replicas, door sills that are carbon fiber; AMS Performance dry carbon roof and trunk panels;0 and a giant BenSopra rear wing, there is no doubt that the outcome is just pure face slapping awesomeness!
8. 2012 Lucra LC470
Small in measurement and weight (only weighs about 2,000 pounds kind of reminiscent of the Mazda Miata) The Lucra LC470 is a deceptively powerful machine. The structure under that carbon fiber body is a straightforward tube frame chassis supported on aluminum suspension links taken from underneath a C4 Corvett. The front 17 inch wheels are encased in 275/40R17 Nitto NT01 tires, while the rear set are incased in 315/35R17 Nittos coupled with PBR 13 inch disc brakes. The engine sits near the middle of the 96 inch wheelbase, well behind the front wheels. With the LS7 V8 outputting 505 hp under its hood it s easy to see why the Lucra can obtain performance such as zero to 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds. (phew, that s fast!)
9. 1971 Jensen Interceptor
What makes this car so furiously designed is that it really looks like someone was furious while designing it. There is a painfully obvious lack of shine, glimmer, color and bling (In other words, no sugar, spice or anything nice). But, some people don t mind the pain, at least we don t. This bare bone designed car looks rough and ready to take beating. The producers decided to leave Letty s Jensen finished in matte gray, with massive side pipes dumping out just forward of the rear wheels. This interceptor also comes equipped with GM LS3? V8 crate engines straight out of the GM Performance Parts catalog. To give you a perspective, that s the same 6.2 liter engine that s standard in the Chevrolet Camaro SS and rated at 430 horsepower.
10. 1963 Corvette Grand Sport
In spite of the huge budget allocated for the production of the Fast and Furious films, discretion when it comes to vehicle acquisition is still wise. Therefore, the producers of the film turned to a company called Mongoose to create a 1963 Corvette replica. The Grand Sport replica was built on a custom fabricated tube frame steel chassis from the fourth generation Corvette with design elements similar to the 1960 s Grand Sport. The car features a GS frame designed by Altair engineering and a suspension from 88 96MY Corvettes with fully adjustable front and rear coil over shocks.
