Every Car Roman Drives In The Movies

Roman Pearce has been a member of the Fast & Furious franchise since the saga’s first official sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious. The character, played by Tyrese Gibson, starred in five installments to date, and in that time, he’s driven a slew of noteworthy cars. Roman was initially depicted as a childhood friend of Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), but in time, he became a loyal ally of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and the rest of the crew. Gibson reprised his role in the most recent sequel, F9, which released in June 2021.

Brian reunited with Roman in 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious for an undercover sting operation targeted at a Miami drug lord. Roman had a history of stealing cars, and he was under house arrest when he made the deal to help his old friend despite the grudge he held against him. When Brian needed help in taking down a corrupt Brazilian businessman in Fast Five, Brian enlisted Roman. The figure then took part in subsequent worldwide missions due to his knack for driving and his skills in manipulating others with his fast-talking ability.

While it usually seems like Roman agrees to the missions for the money and cars, he has remained extremely loyal to the crew. Unsurprisingly, Roman immediately agreed to assist in the search for Mr. Nobody before the investigation led to a battle against Dom’s brother, Jakob. Gibson will likely return for the tenth and eleventh franchise installments, which will serve as the two-part Fast & Furious finale. Until then, here’s every vehicle that was driven by Roman in the film series thus far.

1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Fast & Furious

When Roman made his debut in 2 Fast 2 Furious, he was participating in a demolition derby while under house arrest. Roman was shown driving a beat-up 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo that was painted black, red, and white. There were even teeth painted on the car’s grille. During the derby, Roman kicked out the windshield after it became damaged. Following the competition, Roman reunited with his childhood friend, Brian, before the two engaged in a scuffle. Roman blamed Brian for his legal troubles seeing as he went on to become a cop. Roman ditched the damaged derby car after agreeing to join the sting operation to take down a drug lord.

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GTS
Fast & Furious

To work undercover, agent Monica Fuentes gave Brian and Roman two vehicles to choose from. Roman picked the purple Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GTS convertible model. While he drove it for a while, Roman and Brian discovered that their cars were equipped with tracking devices. When the two men attempted to lure the police away from their whereabouts, they switched cars during a massive vehicle scramble at a large compound. Suki took the Eclipse and was pursued by the cops since they thought Roman was still behind the wheel. It was never revealed what happened to the car, but there was an assumption that Suki became the new owner. It’s important to note that Gibson had a say in some of the Eclipse’s customization, and he even paid for the chrome rims out of his own pocket.

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T
Fast & Furious

Since Roman and Brian got rid of the cars previously given to them to carry out their undercover mission, they were forced to acquire back-ups. The pair raced two of Carter Verone’s associates, Darden and Korpi, which resulted in the keys to their respective vehicles. Roman took Darden’s orange Dodge Challenger, which he then drove to escape from the car scramble at the garage to evade police. Brian had the new muscle cars equipped with half-empty bottles of NOS under the passenger seats to eject the person in the seat. Roman successfully ejected Verone’s henchman from his vehicle, but when Brian got into trouble, he was forced to crash the Challenger into a Lincoln to save his friend. The car wasn’t completely destroyed, and it was most likely impounded after Brian and Roman’s mission was complete.

As Dom and his crew tried to orchestrate a plan to steal the bank vault in Fast Five, they were forced to come up with a way to avoid police cameras. During various street races, the group won the keys to a handful of cars to test out with their own cameras. Among them was a black Toyota Supra, which Roman tested in their mockup track to prepare for the big vault heist.

Since they failed to beat the cameras with their own cars, Han suggested acquiring a handful of police cruisers as a way to blend in during the mission. Dom, Brian, Han, and Roman then broke into the police station parking lot to steal four Dodge Charger Police Cruisers. On the way back to their hideout, the four men had a million-dollar quarter-mile race in which Dom let Brian win. During the heist, Roman drove one of the Chargers to prevent members of the police from catching up with Dom and Brian.

2010 Koenigsegg CCXR
Fast & Furious

After the successful vault heist in Brazil, each member of Dom’s crew acquired a substantial amount of money. Roman used his money to buy a black Koenigsegg CCXR, claiming it was “the only one in the Western Hemisphere.” When he stopped by Tej’s new garage in Miami, he found that his friend had another one of the four models ever produced. Rather than get upset, Roman told Tej that they could “shine together” with their two rare vehicles. Neither one of the cars has been seen since their respective appearances in Fast Five.

2010 BMW E60 M5

To watch over Owen Shaw’s team in Fast & Furious 6, Luke Hobbs gave Dom’s crew a bunch of BMW M5s. When alarms went off at Interpol Headquarters in London, the group used the vehicles to chase Shaw’s team around the city. Roman drove one of the black BMWs, but his car was destroyed, as were all the others except for the one Dom was driving.

While trying to track down Shaw’s convoy to acquire a computer chip, Roman used Tej’s 1969 black and white Ford Mustang Fastback. When Shaw emerged from one of the convoy trucks in a tank, Roman used his car to slow it down until it fired at his vehicle. He quickly braked, but the car got stuck in front of the tank, causing Roman to abandon his plan. Brian saved Roman just before the Ford Mustang was completely crushed by the tank.

1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
Fast & Furious

In Furious 7, Mr. Nobody enlisted Dom’s crew to rescue Ramsey from Mose Jakande’s terrorist organization. The plan involved using cars to jump out of a plane in the hope of surprising the convoy. Roman selected a grey Chevrolet Camaro, which was equipped with large off-road tires and a parachute for the plane jump. When it was time to drive out of the plane, Roman refused to take part, forcing Tej to set off Roman’s parachute early. Roman floated in the forest before he could get back to the group.

2011 Bugatti Veyron
Fast & Furious Bugatti Veyron

Once Dom’s crew acquired Ramsey, they needed to get access to the God’s Eye program. In order to do that, they needed a special flash drive located in Abu Dhabi. The group arrived in the city with expensive cars as a way to blend in. Roman, specifically, drove a white Bugatti Veyron. That was the first and last time the vehicle was seen in the Fast  & Furious franchise.

1985 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
Fast & Furious

Dom’s team returned to Los Angeles, where they faced off against Deckard Shaw and Mose Jakande. The terrorist tried to pursue the group with a stealth helicopter and an aerial drone as Ramsey attempted to hack into God’s Eye. While evading Jakande’s tech, Roman and Tej were driving a light grey Chevrolet Caprice. It was eventually destroyed after being exploded in the faceoff against the multitude of antagonists.

At the start of The Fate of the Furious, members of the team assisted Hobbs in acquiring an EMP device in Berlin. Dom, Letty, Tej, and Roman used grey Dodge Challenger Demons to carry out the special mission. That was until Dom betrayed his team in order to steal the device from Hobbs to deliver to Cipher. The remaining vehicles were believed to be sent back to the DSS.

2010 Bentley Continental GT Vorsteiner BR9 Edition

Cipher sent Dom to New York City on a special mission in The Fate of the Furious. Dom’s former crew decided to try and stop them, but they needed new vehicles. Little Nobody hooked up access to a warehouse of cars, and Roman selected a white and red Bentley Continental. The gang chased Dom through the city before managing to corner him. Despite using harpoons to stop him from escaping, Dom managed to destroy their cars one by one. Roman’s Bentley was flipped and believed to be returned to the FBI’s impound warehouse.

Lamborghini Murciélago LP640

Before choosing the Bentley for the NYC mission, Roman initially wanted the neon orange Lamborghini Murciélago in the FBI’s warehouse. Little Nobody convinced him otherwise, but Roman finally got a chance to drive the car when the gang tracked Dom to Russia. Roman’s car fell through the ice and into the water, forcing Tej to rip off one of the Lamborghini’s doors. Roman then used the broken-off door to attack Cipher’s men on snowmobiles.

2018 Acura NSX

While tracking down Jakob Toretto and his men, Dom’s group traveled to Edinburgh in F9. Roman drove Tej into the city in a silver 2018 Acura NSX before the pair parked it in a town square. After following some of Jakob’s associates, the pair ended up escaping the area in a magnetized truck with Ramsey, meaning the Acura was left behind and not seen again.

Pontiac Fiero Rocket Car

Roman and Tej first saw the Pontiac Fiero when they met Sean Boswell, Twinkie, and Earl Hu in Germany, where the trio were designing rockets. The group tested their Pontiac Fiero equipped with a rocket, which was later redesigned and used as part of Dom’s mission. In order to destroy a satellite intended to be used to implement Project Ares, Dom sent Roman and Tej in space with the rocket car. Though driving wasn’t involved, Roman controlled the modified spacecraft in the ninth Fast & Furious movie.

Fast & Furious 11 Needs Hobbs Vs. Dom (To End The Rock & Vin Diesel’s Feud)


Fast and Furious 11 needs to feature an epic fight between The Rock and Vin Diesel to resolve the real-life feud and bring closure to their characters’ relationship. The clash between Dom and Hobbs in Fast Five was a game-changer, and revisiting that epic confrontation in Fast 11 would elevate the action and add nostalgia. A showdown between Dom and Hobbs in Fast 11 could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation, reaffirming the underlying themes of family and unity in the franchise.

Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has returned to the Fast Saga, Fast and Furious 11 needs to include an epic fight between Johnson and Vin Diesel. In the high-octane world of the Fast and Furious franchise, the thrill of fast cars and heart-stopping action has always been amplified by the magnetic on-screen chemistry between its stars. However, a real-life feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel has been brewing since 2016. Director Louis Leterrier achieved the impossible by bringing The Rock back into the fold. Now, he must find a way to reunite Luke Hobbs and Dominic Toretto on-screen.

Ever since Fate of the Furious, the void left by The Rock’s absence has grown more conspicuous. The actor’s feud with Vin Diesel has cast a shadow over the franchise, making it increasingly difficult for the writers and directors to craft a cohesive narrative. As Fast Saga fans await the next installment, all eyes are on Leterrier to weave a compelling story that not only showcases jaw-dropping action but also offers a chance for Hobbs and Dom to partake in an epic showdown.

Hobbs & Dom Fighting In Fast & Furious 11 Would Bring Their Arc Full Circle

Fast X and Fast and Furious 11 act as sequels to Fast Five in many ways, so it makes perfect sense for the upcoming installment to build on the fight scene between Dom and Hobbs from Fast Five. The clash between the two powerhouse characters left an indelible mark on fans. Revisiting that epic confrontation could elevate the adrenaline-fueled action and add a layer of nostalgia to Fast and Furious 11. Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had a change of heart and returned to the Fast Saga, the anticipation for a rematch between his and Vin Diesel’s characters has reached a fever pitch.

Dom and Hobbs’ showdown in Fast Five was a game-changer for the franchise, propelling it to new heights with its intensity and raw energy. Given the unresolved tension between the two stars in real life, a meticulously crafted fight scene in Fast 11 has the potential to invigorate the climax of the series and provide a cathartic experience for the actors and fans alike. As Fast 11 may be the final chapter in the Fast and Furious universe, all eyes are on this anticipated clash. Hopefully, a brotherly fight will be the defining moment that brings harmony back to the Fast Saga family.

The Rock & Vin Diesel Can Put Their Feud To Rest On Screen

Vin Diesel and The Rock’s personal history adds a layer of complexity to any potential fight between their characters in Fast and Furious 11. Given their real-life feud, it’s unlikely either actor would be portrayed as the clear winner or loser. Moreover, from a storytelling perspective, it would be counterproductive to have Dom excessively harm or kill Hobbs or vice versa. However, as the series approaches its potential end, a showdown between Dom and Hobbs could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation. After all, throughout the Fast and Furious films, audiences have witnessed a recurring pattern of men engaging in physical conflicts before eventually forming unbreakable bonds.

For instance, Fast and Furious sees Dom and Brian’s tumultuous relationship evolve into a deep brotherly connection after a series of knock-down, drag-out fights. This same sort of understanding between Dom and Hobbs would reaffirm the underlying themes of reconciliation and family that have contributed to the franchise’s enduring popularity. By embracing the notion that they are, in a sense, brothers, Dom and Hobbs could mend their on-screen relationship and deliver a broader message of unity. This would ultimately give fans a satisfying conclusion to their relationship in Fast and Furious 11.

Vin Diesel Posts Paul Walker Tribute On 10th Anniversary Of His Death


Vin Diesel shares a touching tribute to Paul Walker 10 years after the actor’s tragic death on November 30, 2013. Diesel expresses that “more smiles manage to break through the tears” as years pass because he knows his bond with Walker will be stronger than ever when they eventually reunite. Walker’s character, Brian O’Connor, remains alive in the world of Fast and Furious, and Diesel has previously teased that the franchise won’t end without a proper farewell to Brian and Walker.

Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel takes to social media to share a touching tribute to Paul Walker, 10 years after the actor’s death. First released in 2001, the debut installment in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise introduces Diesel as Dominic Toretto and Walker as Brian O’Connor. Both characters would return for a number of sequels, but Walker tragically passed away on November 30, 2013, during the production of Furious 7.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Walker’s passing, Diesel has shared a touching tribute post on Instagram to honor his late Fast and Furious costar. Check out the actor’s emotional post below:

Accompanying an image of Walker with one of his daughters, Diesel reminisces about an important lesson learned from the late actor and how his legacy still lives on today. Diesel’s full caption is included below:

I was listening to a song this morning…‘That Lucky Old Sun’… thought of you, racing around Heaven all day. Hahaha…
The family of the Mourning, feels like it has grown since a decade ago… feel’s like that experience of losing someone is far too common today. Leaving more and more of us in search for meaning, trying to make sense of this complex existence…
Oh, I have finally understood what you use to do with the phone, “phone Fasting”… you had the insight to turn off your phone for long stretches of time. I started this year to do just that. You used to say, Vin and I can go years without talking, and our brotherhood will always be stronger than we left it, the ones who truly love you will always be there.
Amen to that.
This is one of my favorite images ever taken… You knew how proud I was when my daughter, the Alpha Angel, your niece would play the piano… well last night she was playing Moonlight Sonata… it took me back to the night before she was born. Me and you were working late… you were telling me that the best moment in life would be witnessing my child being born. That priceless smile you had when I told you the next day that I had cut the umbilical cord…
The next song she started playing on the piano is by an artist you would have loved, named Billie Eilish, ‘What was I made for’… when she started to play, the other angels all came and joined her at the piano and they started singing… wow…emotions… angels, I know you were listening.
After ten years… I know these days of beautiful remembrance will be filled with tears. But as time rolls on, with each year that passes… more smiles manage to break through the tears. Cause I know, when I see you again… our brotherhood will be stronger than we left it.
Miss you.

Will Brian Be Seen Again In Fast & Furious?
Furious 7 Reveals How Paul Walker’s Character Can Return
CGI Paul Walker in Furious 7.

Walker’s death in November 2013 came with a great deal of sadness, but it also created problems for the Furious 7 production, which was about halfway done. It was ultimately decided that Walker’s remaining scenes would be completed with a digital recreation of the actor, with his two brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, serving as body doubles. Although Walker may have passed away, Brian remains alive and well within the world of the films, though he has not been seen in the flesh since Furious 7’s emotional ending.

The closet audiences have come to seeing Brian again (outside of the flashbacks featured in Fast X) is at the end of F9: The Fast Saga, when the character’s iconic Nissan Skyline pulls up at Dom’s house. This summer’s Fast X supposedly sets up the conclusion of the franchise in an 11th and potentially 12th installment (in addition to the announced Dwayne Johnson Luke Hobbs spinoff movie), and it’s very likely that the final movie will see Brian return in some capacity.

Diesel has also essentially teased as much, telling Total Film (via GamesRadar) earlier this year: “I couldn’t imagine this saga ending without truly saying goodbye to Brian O’Conner.” It’s unclear if this will mean a substantial digital recreation of the actor for extended portions of the film or a quick cameo at the very end, but it seems like audiences haven’t seen the last of Brian just yet. Even in death, Walker remains a key pillar of Fast and Furious, and it’s fitting that the final film will feature another heartfelt goodbye to further honor the late actor.

All 4 Fast & Furious Heroes Who Stayed Dead (& Which One Is Most Likely To Return)


Fast & Furious franchise is known for bringing back dead characters, but there are a few heroes who have remained dead. Jack Toretto, Dom’s father, died in a racing accident and his death should not be undone in the franchise. Jesse, a member of Dom’s crew, was killed in a drive-by shooting, while Vince was killed during an ambush. Elena, Dom’s love interest, was killed by the villain Cipher.

The Fast & Furious franchise has brought many characters back from the dead, but a handful of its heroes have remained killed off after their demise. The Fast Saga has taken its characters on a wild ride from street racing to the most outlandish adventures possible. The running theme of the Fast & Furious franchise has long been family, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) building quite a large family indeed over the course of the Fast Saga’s run.

On top of its embrace of ridiculous, superhuman feats as a staple of its action scenes, the Fast & Furious movies are also well known for bringing back seemingly dead characters for more missions. The returns of Sung Kang’s Han in F9 and Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashar in Fast X would be especially noteworthy in emphasizing the notion that no Fast & Furious death is irreversible. However, that is not entirely true, as there have been a few Fast & Furious heroes who have died and never come back.

4 Jack Toretto
An image of Jack Toretto driving a car in F9

Jack Toretto (J.D. Pardo) is the father of Dom, Mia (Jordana Brewster), and Jakob Toretto (John Cena), and is first seen in a flashback to 1989 in F9. Jack is a highly skilled race car driver who instilled that talent in his children, with Dom and Jakob being part of his racing pit crew. However, Jack’s racing career took a tragic turn when his car malfunctioned and crashed, killing him. Dom later beat his father’s racing opponent, Kenny Linder (Jim Parrack), almost to death with a wrench, believing him responsible for his father’s demise.

This tragedy also led to Dom and Jakob falling out, with Dom later coming to believe that Jakob set up their father’s death since he was the last one to work on his car. However, Jack was intentionally attempting to throw the race in order to get his family out of debt. He had asked Jakob to help tinker with his car so that it would fail, with Jack’s death being unintentional on both their parts. While his return has been theorized by fans, of all the characters killed off in Fast & Furious, Jack Toretto’s death should never be retconned.

3 Jesse

One of the early members of Dom’s family in the original The Fast and the Furious, Jesse (Chad Lindberg) was the brains of Dom’s crew in his enterprise of stealing DVD players. Jesse went on the run after losing a street race to Dom’s rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune), having bet his MK3 Volkswagen Jetta in the race. Jesse was later killed outside of Dom’s house when Johnny Tran and his associate Lance Nguyen (Reggie Lee) arrived and performed a drive-by shooting. Dom and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) then chased down Johnny Tran and Lance Nguyen to avenge their fallen friend.

2 Vince

Vince (Matt Schulze) was another member of Dom’s crew in The Fast & the Furious, and he was badly injured during a truck heist in that first movie. After his recovery, Vince fled to Rio de Janeiro where he later reunited with Dom and family in Fast Five. Despite Vince having settled down with a wife and a baby son, he agreed to join Dom’s daring heist of Rio’s most feared crime boss Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida). Unfortunately, Vince was killed during an ambush by Reyes’s team. After successfully pulling off the heist, Dom left Vince’s intended share of the money with his wife and son.

1 Elena

Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) worked alongside Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in apprehending Dom and his crew in Fast Five. She and Dom gradually developed feelings for each other, however, and departed for Spain with Dom at the end of the movie. After Dom learned that his wife Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) was still alive despite her apparent death in Fast & Furious, Dom and Elena had an amicable split, only for it to later be revealed that Elena is the mother of Dom’s son in The Fate of the Furious.

After Elena was killed by the villainous Cipher (Charlize Theron), Dom and Letty raised the boy together, with the two naming him Brian after Brian O’Conner. Meanwhile, Dom later met Elena’s sister Isabel (Daniela Melchior), who joined Dom’s crew in Fast X. While Elena remains deceased as of Fast X, the arrival of her sister Isabel and Fast & Furious’s habit of not truly killing off characters makes her the most likely thought-to-be-dead hero to potentially return as the franchise speeds towards its finale.
