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

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 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.

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.

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.
