Every Car Dom Has Driven In The Movies

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) was behind many wheels across the Fast & Furious movies, and among all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious sit some of the best and most expensive in the franchise. Every car Dom drove in Fast and Furious is a powerful beast that reflects the protagonist’s personality, serving as an extension of the character’s onscreen presence. Dominic Toretto has appeared in eight Fast & Furious movies, as well as Diesel’s self-created and directed tie-in short film, Los Bandoleros. The actor will surely add a few more vehicles to this list with Fast X on the way.

Dom is a major fan of muscle cars, something that became apparent very early in the franchise. Rather than use typical models for speed during street races, Dom preferred something with horsepower. His love for this type of car was influenced by Dom’s father, another car fanatic, and Dom had a tendency to argue with Brian O’Conner over his friend’s loyalty to imports. Most recently, Dom appeared in a central role in the F9 cast. Dom will surely get behind the wheel of some more vehicles in the final two installments of Fast & Furious. Until then, here’s every car Dom drives in Fast and Furious.

1970 Dodge Charger R/T

What is the black car Dom drove in Fast and Furious’ early movies? Dom’s signature car in The Fast Saga is the black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. Built by Dom and his father, it appeared in The Fast and the Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Furious 7 – where it was destroyed when Dom faced off against Deckard Shaw in LA. Based on how the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T looks at the hideout in F9, it seems Dom repaired the car after Furious 7.

One of the most recognizable out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T was a part of the second generation of cars, but featured a completely unique style from previous iterations. Equipped with one of the biggest motors Dodge had in production at the time, the R/T was the first to give the option of an installed 440 six-pack, which pushed out a whopping 375 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque. A cross between a luxury vehicle and a muscle car, the Charger remains in the annals of most coveted muscle cars of all time.

Not to be outdone by the other cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the end credits of The Fast and the Furious shows Dom escaping Los Angeles and driving a red Chevelle in Baja, Mexico. The car then returned in Fast & Furious when Dom drove home to attend Letty’s funeral. Dom later sanded the car, repainted it gray, and blew it up while trying to get vengeance for Letty’s “death” and then her subsequent resurrection several sequels later.

The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS had the option of four different engine styles, with the 454 (LS6) maxing out at a staggering 450 horsepower. Coming in a wide variety of paint colors, 15 in total, the LS6 454 was the third-fastest classic muscle car from the muscle car era and the 2nd fastest overall in 1970. It also featured the highest advertised horsepower at the time and has surpassed its retail value. If one wanted to purchase a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS today, one would have to shell out over $99,000 for the desirable Sport Coupe LS6 454.

1970 Plymouth Road Runner
Fast and Furious Dom Plymouth Road Runner

Dom’s Road Runner was first seen at the end of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift when he encountered Sean at the race. He mentioned that he got the car from Han, which led back to Furious 7 when Dom traveled to Tokyo to retrieve Han’s belongings after his presumed death. Of course, Han’s death was faked by him and Mr. Nobody, returning for F9. Dom used a different Road Runner in the movie when he was back in Los Angeles.

Out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the Plymouth Road Runner was the most revolutionary of the muscle car era. While other muscle cars hiked up their price tags and beefed up their size, the Road Runner did the opposite. Not only does it get its name from a famous cartoon character, but each Road Runner was equipped with a special horn to mimic the character. This stripped-down and basic muscle car, when equipped with a 426-ci Street Hemi, reached a shocking 494 horsepower, living up to its iconic namesake.

2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8

Dom bought the Challenger in Spain and was later seen racing Brian at the end of Fast Five while celebrating their successful heist. In the next film, Fast & Furious 6, Dom and Brian were racing once again while using the same two cars. The fate of the car is currently unknown in The Fast Saga.

Out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 is the newest. Running on a V-8 engine, the Challenger reaches a max horsepower of 425 with 420 pound-feet of torque. Its retro styling is reminiscent of the muscle car era, to be sure, and features a lower suspension for expert handling.

1968 Dodge Charger Hellacious
Fast and Furious 9 Han Car Dom Charger

Dom first used the 1968 Dodge Charger Hellacious in F9 when the group arrived in Edinburgh to hunt down Jakob Toretto to stop him from using the Project Ares device. The car was then used during the convoy sequence in Tbilisi, specifically in taking down the armored vehicle with magnets. The Charger was then given to Jakob Toretto, who later attempted to return it to Dom as the brothers made amends.

Out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the 1968 Dodge Charger Hellacious is by far the fastest. Custom-built by Speedkore, a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat HEMI V8 is what gives the vehicle a staggering 707 horsepower and 650 pound-foot of torque. The car also features a gated-manual Graziano transaxle from a Lamborghini Gallardo and also has a hydraulic handbrake to help deal with drifts and slides.

The F10 trailer has been released, and it only adds to the list of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious. Hitting theaters on May 19th, 2023, the upcoming movie Fast X will be the first in a two-part finale for the high-octane franchise, seeing Dante (Jason Momoa) swearing revenge against Dom and his family. The first car Dom drives in the trailer is the old reliable 1970 Dodge Charger R/T while he’s talking to his son and driving in a street race against Dante. In addition, he also drops out of an airplane in the car and uses it to pull helicopters from midair.

Another new car that Dom drives in Fast X will be the 2023 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. The car was shown performing a series of tricks while filming in Turin, Italy, and in the trailer, Dom is driving it while being pursued by Dante. Other cars from the Fast X trailer that have unknown drivers are the 1971 Datsun 240Z, the Lamborghini Gallardo, and the 1966 Ford Fairlane. Any one of these bad boys could count as one of the cars Dom drives in Fast & Furious, but audiences will have to wait until the film drops in May to find out who exactly will be at the wheel.

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

The Rock’s WWE Run Proves Fast & Furious 11 Needs To Give Hobbs More Of An Edge
Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five
A custom image featuring Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious movies Custom image by Debanjana Chowdhury

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.

Fast & Furious 11
is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
