Every gearhead has seen at least one installment of the Fast and Furious film series. Even though modern installments are more blockbuster action films than street racing films, audiences continue to throng to theaters for each new release.
Even though the Fast and Furious films have moved away from the street racing motif that made them so popular in the first place, they still feature some incredible automobiles. Who could forget the Toyota Supra Mk4 from the first film?
Top Cars Featured in the Latest Fast & Furious Film
As anticipated, the new trailer for the latest installment of the franchise, Fast X, released by Universal Pictures recently is filled with cool cars. Here are some of the vehicles featured in Fast X, ranging from screaming muscle cars to ultra-fast sports cars.
10. Dodge Charger R/T 1970
The Fast and Furious cast has changed considerably since the first film was released two decades ago, but one character has remained consistent: Dominic Toretto. Toretto is a popular cinema protagonist known for his love of his family and American muscle vehicles.
Dominic Toretto’s go-to vehicle has always been a 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, one of the most recognizable muscle cars in history. Dom’s Charger has been in numerous accidents, yet Dom keeps repairing and restoring it.
9. Lamborghini Gallardo
One of the most dramatic scenes in the Fast X teaser involves a gold Lamborghini Gallardo in a frantic vehicle pursuit. This is also the Gallardo that Turin visitors photographed and videotaped.
The Gallardo is one of the most iconic Italian supercars, therefore it’s no surprise that it was featured in the Italy sequences.
The Gallardo appears to be the type of car that Tyrese Gibson’s character Roman Pearce would drive, but because it appears to be in the bad guys’ convoy, we’re guessing Dante.
8. Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody 2023
Stellantis has always had a close connection to the Fast and Furious franchise. The automaker constantly makes sure that its vehicles play important roles in films, and there’s usually a new Dodge model on display.
The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye with gray paint and a factory widebody kit is the car chosen for Fast X. According to the trailer, the Charger is involved in one of the best vehicle chases in the film.
7. Classic Chevrolet Impala
Jason Momoa is one of the most recent Hollywood megastars to join the Fast and Furious franchise, but unlike in many of his previous films, he portrays a vengeful antagonist named Dante. Dante lost his family during Fast Five’s chaotic bridge pursuit, and he’s apparently been after Dom ever since.
They must own a cool vehicle in preparation for the inevitable street race with Dom, as would be expected of any Fast and Furious villain. Dante’s preferred vehicle is a classic lavender Chevrolet Impala that appears to have been modified to increase performance.
6. Datsun 240Z
The Fast and Furious series has always had a close relationship with the Japanese automobile industry. The franchise is largely responsible for the success and popularity of vehicles like the Toyota Supra Mk4 and Nissan Skyline GT-R.
Fast X continues to pay homage to this connection by showcasing the legendary Datsun 240Z, one of the finest Japanese sports cars of all time.
5. 1966 Ford Fairlane
Even though this is Dante’s first appearance in a Fast and Furious film, we can tell from the cars he drives that he is a great fan of classic American muscle cars.
Dom uses his iconic Charger to pursue Dante’s Ford Fairlane down the interstate after he abducts Dom’s son. Based on the apparent speed of Dante’s Fairlane, it could be the ultra-rare R-Code. Only 57 Ford R-Codes were produced, making it one of the rarest muscle vehicles.
4. Chevrolet El Camino
After Vin Diesel’s infamous feud with The Rock, the producers of Fast and Furious decided to replace the former WWE superstar with John Cena, another renowned wrestler.
Cena engages in a high-speed automobile chase through the canyons while driving a Chevrolet El Camino. However, Cena’s El Camino is unlike any other, as it is equipped with missile launchers that he employs to destroy enemy vehicles.
3. Police Car Alfa Romeo159
If you’ve ever seen a Fast and Furious movie, you know there will be at least one vehicle pursuit involving the cops. This police chase takes place in Italy in Fast X and is as crazy as you’d imagine.
The Alfa Romeo 159, one of the coolest police cars in the world, is used by the Italian law enforcement authorities participating in the chase.
2. Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997)
A street race between four vehicles is one of the most memorable scenes in the Fast X teaser. We’ve already mentioned the first three. The race’s final vehicle is a green 997-generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS that looks spectacular.
The Porsche GT3 RS is a homologation variant of the Porsche GT3 RSR that competes in races such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, so it’s always ready to race. Unfortunately, the GT3 RS is involved in a massive explosion and will most likely not survive till the end of the film.
1. Nissan Silvia
When it comes to Japanese drifting vehicles, the Nissan Silvia is hard to beat. The Silvia’s design, front-engined rear-wheel-drive combination, and smooth engines make it one of the best drifting cars of all time, which explains its cult appeal.
A white Nissan Silvia S13 makes a quick appearance in the Fast X teaser, and it looks beautiful. Silvia, however, does not appear to play a significant role in the film, as it was only seen in a car meet scene.
