The Fast And Furious film series is known for having high-octane action and gorgeous cars. Over the years, the films have become less about street racing and more about espionage. But the vehicles have always been impressive. The Fate Of The Furious will be released on the 12th April, and we’ve put together a list of the finest classic cars from the series.
1970 Dodge Charger
The dynamic between Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner is one of the most important relationships in the series. In the first film, Toretto races O’Conner in his father’s 1970s Dodge Charger. The car is damaged after it hits a truck and flips through the air. However, the Charger returns in the fourth and fifth film to break Toretto out of a prison transport bus.
1987 Buick GNX
Toretto uses a 1987 Buick GNX for a truck heist in the fourth film. The GNX features a turbocharged 3.8-litre V-6 engine with an output of 245 hp. This makes it a true beast on the road, and a rarity, considering only 1000 were made.
1971 Jensen Interceptor
Letty Ortiz drives a beautiful matte grey 1971 Jensen Interceptor in the sixth film. The English sports car was in production between 1966 and 1976. Instead of it being powered by a British inline-six, the car features a Chrysler V8 engine.
1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
The 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo appears in Tokyo Drift, driven by Sean Boswell. Although the car is destroyed after losing control, the vehicle is a beauty. The Monte Carlo was introduced in 1970 as a competitor to the Ford Thunderbird. With a V8 engine that’s able to crank out 360 horsepower, the car has earned its place in the franchise.
1970 Ford Escort RS1600 MK1
Brian O’Conner uses this nimble motor in Fast & Furious 6 during a high-speed chase against a tank. The Escort came out in 1968 and was fitted with a four-cylinder engine. The RS1600 improved on the original design by coming with a 1.6-litre twincam 16-valve BDA four-cylinder engine. As the car weighed 18,000 pounds it had a power-to-weight ratio that made it a versatile model.
1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko SYC
Brian O’Conner drives a ‘69 Yenko Camaro SYC to escape from police in 2 Fast 2 Furious. The car has been in high demand since it was created by racer Don Yenko because of his ability to craft top-performing vehicles. Many of the cars were equipped with rally wheels, E70x15 tyres and a special 427 emblem
