Some fantastic cars have appeared in the Fast and Furious movie franchise, and now they are officially ranked.

The Fast and Furious franchise has made everyone waiting to see what comes next from one year to the next and from one movie to the next. Beginning from 2001 with The Fast and the Furious and continuing with no end in sight. The first film was a blast. With a lot of modified cars, pace, and street races, anything entirely new and remarkable. At that time, it continues to create a pattern, and it did not stop there. A new film with spectacular rides and wild adventures is released every two or three years, but the storyline changed when one of the lead stars, Paul Walker, passed away.

The movies haven’t been the same without him though the directors felt that even though Paul was no longer around, the franchise could continue. Muscle cars, sports cars, bikes, races, and pursuit on the streets of important foreign and American cities are focused on Fast and Furious. The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast and 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast and Furious, Fast Five, Fast and Furious 6, Furious7, and, last but not least, The Fate of the Furious. Here’s the list of the greatest and most impressive drives from all the Fast and Furious films.

One should bear in brain that only the beautiful cars but the actors and the story behind them. These movies did not become popular.

Lexus LF-A 2012

Lexus LF-A 2012

In the movie Fast Five, this vehicle, the 2012 Lexus LF-A, has a very brief appearance, more specifically in the end, like Han’s trip. His taste for cars is very curious, but according to us, this car’s central concept was Han’s final ride. However, as everyone could see afterwards, it wasn’t. Han had a controversial part in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, having had the horrific crash, but in the next films, he managed to resurface. In the following movies, he did make a remarkable appearance and had other cars to drive. Still, this car can be considered one of his best drives throughout the series.

Corvette Grand Sport

The 1966 Corvette Grand Sport features in Fast Five. When he and Brian O’Conner managed to get away from a freight vehicle by jumping off a cliff, Dominic Toretto drove it into the sea.

Of course, the car used in the film was a reproduction since only a few original Grand Sports are left in the world.

In particular, Chevrolet built and homologated it for the 1960 races because, according to Motor Trend, it was light and powerful. Even though it was a copy, in the movie, it certainly looked beautiful. When he or she sees one, everyone understands how to appreciate a masterpiece.

Ford Escort RS1600 Mk1

Ford Escort RS1600 Mk1

Fast and Furious 6, the 1970 Ford Escort RS1600 Mk1, gave quite an exciting ride. This car was originally sold on the European market, and it was a little monster all the way through the mid-’70s, starting from the late 60s. The RS1600 model, which had a 1.6-litre 16-valve twin-cam Cosworth BDA four-cylinder engine with 113 horsepower, was powered by Brian O’Conner in the movie. One might think that this car was not chosen well because of its power but taking into account that it weighs less than 2,000 pounds.

As the sequels progress, cars are becoming more and more unusual and exotic. In terms of rarity, The Charger Daytona is undoubtedly up there. The Charger Daytona and its sibling, the Plymouth Superbird, are characterized by their elongated “nose cone” and massive decklid-mounted wing, a legend in NASCAR racing. A standard ’68 Charger dressed up to look like a Daytona is actually the car seen in the film.

MAZDA RX-7 VEILSIDE FD

MAZDA RX-7 VEILSIDE FD

Han’s (Sung Kang) powered Mazda RX-7 is probably the most striking car in the entire movie. In part due to the fantastic drift scenes around Tokyo, but mostly due to Japanese tuner shop VeilSide’s beautiful custom body kit. The ’97 RX-7 is the most iconic example of a Wankel rotary engine ever created, coming from the golden age of JDM automobiles. The engine will launch this JDM masterpiece to 60 in less than 6 seconds, turbocharged to generate 280 horsepower. And you can be assured that you see this car doing the drifts in the movie.

Ford GT40

Here’s another ultra-rare car that was hosted by the franchise The Fast and Furious. Currently, the train heist from Fast Five is about this 1965 Ford GT40. The navigation system installed on the vehicle will provide precious details about the bad guy’s hideouts. The movie’s replica was made based on the famous GT40 sports car, a good winner of many 1960s races. He was also the 24 Hours of Le Mans champion four years in a row, from 1966 to 1969. According to Motor Trend, only a few models were designed to be qualified for the competition.

Dodge Charger Daytona

Dodge Charger Daytona

The Daytona is a legend on the NASCAR racing circuit. Although the one, a modified version of the regular 1968 Charger and not the exact model is in the movie. Only during 1969 and 1970 were the actual Dodge Daytona Chargers made. In Fast and Furious 6, Dom drives this vehicle twice: once when street racing with Letty and the time in the tank chase, the car meets its untimely end. In Quick and the Furious, the Dodge Daytona is not quite as it seems. To give this Charger the Daytona look, the entire front end was made from Dennis McCarthy’s fiberglass.

1973 F-Bomb Chevrolet Camaro

1973 F-Bomb Chevrolet Camaro

According to Motor Trend, David Freiburger, the Roadkill host, constructed the 1973 F-Bomb Chevrolet Camaro. He also wanted to see how often a car could be changed while retaining its street-legal status. Estimating by the 1,500-horsepower result from a twin-turbo engine, the project was a success. This car was considered the best choice for the 2009 Fast and Furious film director’s final scene. A replica of the beast is guided right into one of the bad guys by Dominic Toretto. It should be remembered that the real vehicles in the movies do not actually appear.

The Ramp Car

Koenigsegg CCX-R

The person who invented the Ramp Car saw the Mad Max movies because one of those strange-looking cars looks remarkably like it. The bad guy, Owen Shaw, engineered this vehicle in Fast and Furious 6 of 2013 simply to overturn other vehicles, with a wedge-like front end and a low profile.

According to Motor Trend, even though it’s custom made, it still looks like it was based on an open-wheel racing car.

The engineer who built it thought installing a V8 engine mixed with a three-speed automatic transmission on it would be fair enough.

Koenigsegg CCX-R

Koenigsegg CCX-R

As a limited edition, the 2010 Koenigsegg CCX-R was produced; only four cars are on the streets. The idea of this car was to help save the world because it’s ethanol-fuelled. Perhaps this is why one of the vehicles bought by Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) and one by Tej Parker appeared at the end of Quick Five (Ludacris). Its engine produces 1,000 horsepower, so it’s fast enough and environmentally friendly as well. Based on the beasts they built over the past few years, Koenigsegg has seen a rapid rise in car manufacturers’ scale.

RB-Swapped Ford Mustang

RB-Swapped Ford Mustang

At the climax of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, piloted by Sean Boswell, the RB-Swapped 1967 Ford Mustang appears. The car was previously owned by Sean’s father in the novel, who decided to restore it. The car needed a new engine, however. Since the action takes place in Japan, according to Motor Trend, the muscle gets a 2.6-litre twin-turbo RB26 inline-six unit from the Nissan Skyline GT-R. If it took many custom parts for such a swap to work on a Mustang, we have to note that this was in a movie, and on the big screen, anything is possible. Ultimately, the project was a success, and the final race was a blast.

McLaren 720S

McLaren 720S

This McLaren720S was previously seen by Jason Statham at the premiere of this film earlier this year. In one of the high pursuit scenes in the movie, a dark blue model was used. While attempting to flee from Idris Elba in Glasgow Lane, Jason Statham, who was behind the wheel, performed many wild road movements.

The most shocking moment was when, alongside Statham and Vanessa Kirby, the big man, Dwayne Johnson, ‘The Rock,’ fit into the car. Not the luxurious vehicle you’d think of, but it’s a speed demon, clearly. With a top speed of 212 mph, in a stunning 2.7 secs, the McLaren 720S will accelerate from a standstill of zero to 60 mph.

It comes with an impressive seven-speed Reverse Smooth Shift dual-clutch Gearbox 3,994cc V-8 4.0-liter gasoline engine and dual electrically-actuated Twin Scroll turbocharger. The engine produces an average of 710 horsepower and 568 pounds of torque.

W Motors Lykan HyperSport

The most expensive car in Fast and Furious series

An exciting option for the Fast and Furious franchise was the 2013 W Motors Lykan HyperSport.

It’s a very pricey journey, judging by the price tag of $3.4 million.

But in both headlights, it also provides 420 fifteen-carat diamonds and a combination of diamonds and sapphires in the interior. This was not that important, keeping in mind that according to Us, the RUF-tuned Porsche flat-six engine provides 720 horsepower and a sprint in just 2.8 seconds from 0 to 60 mph. It appeared to have a fiery red colour in Furious 7, but it did not have the same effect as the other cars despite its strength.

Corvette Stingray 1966

Corvette Stingray 1966

This bright-red C2 also appeared in the New York chase series, as if the BRZ wanted a classic domestic counterweight. The vehicle was initially being reported to be a barn discovery in desperate need of reconstruction. The ‘Furious’ mechanics gladly obliged with a 400-horsepower crate engine, a new differential, power steering, power brakes, and a custom large body package.

Mitsubishi Eclipse

Mitsubishi Eclipse

Brian O’Conner drove the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse in The Fast and the Furious. This was the first car Brian used to participate in illegal street races and gain Dominic Toretto’s favour. The intake manifold of the vehicle begins to overheat when it’s in the middle of the race. Still, he simply ignores the alarm before the car starts to fall apart. Initially, this car had a 420A Neon 16-valve 4-cylinder DOHC 3.0-liter engine that produced 210 horsepower. According to Fast and Furious Wikia, the film’s modifications incorporated with Sparco racing seats, the RoboCar Armor Eclipse body kit, and the whole set of 18-inch wheels.

Toyota Supra Turbo MkIV

Toyota Supra Turbo MkIV

In the film’s first movie, the 1995 Toyota Supra Turbo MKIV was the only car in the movie that could stand beside Dom’s Charger. Brian gives the keys to his 2JZ Supra to Dom at the end of the movie after an entertaining and emotional race so that he can escape. However, suppose it had two phases of nitrous, a set of drag slicks, and a few performance modifications. In that case, this Japanese muscle car could actually keep up with the Charger, according to Us.

Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R: The O’Conner Beauty

Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R: The O'Conner Beauty

The 1999 Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R, the lead character from The Fast and Furious franchise, was the iconic car of the character played by Paul Walker. Still, it wasn’t the first Skyline that appeared in these movies. The original hosted the “Big Bird” called the yellow, grey market import R33, which could be seen for a few moments. At the beginning of 2 Quick 2 Furious, however, the R34 GT-R was given a full 10 minutes before it was killed. At a closer glance, one can see how the unique HICAS rear-steering mechanism mounted on the GT-R actually operates. Although Brian drives many other cars in the movie, he is most identified with the GT-R badge.

Dodge Charger: The Dominic Demon

Dodge Charger: The Dominic Demon

The 1970 Dodge Charger is considered Dominic Toretto’s iconic car because he appeared in the first movie, The Fast and the Furious, driving it.

In reality, four cars were used.

One with a mechanically blown Hemi engine and three more with 440 large blocks for close-ups and modding. It really stood out from the crowd was the most fascinating thing about it, which made it very unique. It’s one of the most quintessential and beloved cars in all the Fast and Furious movies, as well as in film history.

Let’s see what rides Fast and Furious 9 has to offer for its fans.
