What’s racing faster: the cars on the screen, or your pulse? For 14 years and seven films, the Fast & Furious franchise has used one to drive the other. And these are some of the cars they’ve put into action to do it!
1987 Buick Grand National (Fast & Furious)
A second generation Buick Regal, the Buick Grand National debuted in 1982 as a way to capitalize on winning the Manufacturers Cup the two previous years. It was named for the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series.
1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro SYC (2 Fast 2 Furious)
Created in 1967 to compete with the Ford Mustang, the Camaro proved a suitable rival for the top of the pony car category. Continuing its years of success, Chevy debuted the sixth generation in May of 2015.
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (The Fast & The Furious, Fast & Furious)
One of the most popular midsize muscle cars of the era, the Chevelle was produced by Chevrolet from 1964 to 1977. There were three generations: 1964 – 1967, 1968 – 1972, and 1973 – 1977. Top production was 86,307 in 1969.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Grand Sport (Fast Five)
The first Corvettes were sold way back in 1953! Currently in its seventh generation, the iconic American sports car has served more than 10 times as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500.
1970 Dodge Challenger (2 Fast 2 Furious)
Based on the Plymouth Barracuda platform, the Challenger debuted in 1970, and was only originally produced through 1974. A second generation bearing the Challenger name showed up as an import in 1978 and finished in 1983. The third generation finally emerged in 2008.
1970 Dodge Charger R/T (The Fast & The Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, Furious 7)
The Dodge Charger has seen several size iterations since its concept debut in 1964. The R/T (Road/Track) editions began to appear in 1967 with more powerful engines and other performance upgrades. Despite a 19-year absence from 1987 to 2006, the Charger is in its seventh generation.
1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport (Fast & Furious)
Named after the Italian city, the Ford Torino debuted in 1968 as a higher model of the Ford Fairlane. The Gran Torino, an even higher performance model, debuted in 1972 and is known for the oval-shaped front grille — which many have compared to the face of a big fish.
Ford GT40 (Fast Five)
Originally produced to beat Ferrari in long-distance races, the iconic racing car managed to win at Le Mans four times from 1966 – 1969. Success!
2006 Nissan 350Z (The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift)
The fifth generation of Nissan’s Z-car line, the 350Z was produced from 2002 to 2009. In 2009, it was replaced by the 370Z.
