Every Car Luke Hobbs Drives In The Movies

Luke Hobbs was a latecomer to the Fast & Furious franchise, but he had a handful of opportunities to get behind the wheel of some memorable cars. Portrayed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Hobbs made his series debut in 2011’s Fast Five as an enemy-turned-ally of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker). After emerging as a fan-favorite, Johnson led the franchise’s first spinoff, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, alongside Jason Statham in his portrayal as Deckard Shaw.

When Hobbs joined the Fast & Furious series, he was a Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent assigned to investigate the deaths of DEA agents. Hobbs’ search took him to Brazil, where he got involved in the country’s corruption. Initially chasing after Dom and Brian, Hobbs later allied with their group and remained on the frontlines in key missions across the globe. Hobbs eventually decided to take some time away from the DSS to focus on raising his young daughter, but he could never stay away from high stakes conflict for too long.

The Fast & Furious franchise transformed with the release of Fast Five, and it was no coincidence that the installment featured the addition of Johnson in a key role. Hobbs’ role helped change the Fast & Furious movies for the better, increasing the level of action sequences and bringing another blockbuster star into the fold. It didn’t hurt that Hobbs didn’t shy away from using unorthodox vehicles. That said, here’s every vehicle used by Johnson’s character in the franchise thus far.

Gurkha LAPV
Fast & Furious

When Hobbs made his debut in Fast Five, the character was given one of the most intimidating vehicles possible. As a DSS agent, the enormous human of a man drove a Gurkha LAPV. Hobbs and his team used the armored military vehicle to drive around Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as they sought Dom and his crew. When Hernan Reyes’ men ambushed Hobbs’ team, Dom’s group put their lives on the line to help the DSS agents. When Hobbs realized that the group was trying to take down a corrupt Brazilian business person, he volunteered to assist in their mission to steal Reyes’ bank vault. As part of the complicated heist, Hobbs received assistance from Elena Neves and used his Gurkha LAPV to knock down the wall leading to the vault. Dom and Brian then used their cars to pull the vault out of the building, leading to a chase through Rio.

Navistar MXT

Hobbs returned in Fast & Furious 6, which primarily featured the character using a Navistar MXT. Hobbs was first seen behind the wheel of the large truck when he arrived at the convoy attack in Moscow, Russia. The DSS agent recruited Dom and his crew to help track down Owen Shaw, who happened to be working with Letty Ortiz at the time. After Shaw’s team performed a heist on Interpol HQ, Hobbs used the Navistar MXT to chase them around the streets of London. He had no trouble brushing off police cars, but when it came to Shaw’s flip car, Hobbs had no choice but to jump out of his own vehicle to reach his enemy. It was never revealed what happened to the Navistar MXT.

International 4000-Series Ambulance
Fast & Furious

Hobbs spent most of Furious 7 in a hospital room after a violent run-in with Owen Shaw’s brother, Deckard, at the beginning of the movie. When Dom’s crew battled Deckard and a terrorist named Mose Jakande in Downtown Los Angeles, Hobbs broke out of the hospital to assist his allies. To get to the location of the action, Hobbs stole an International 4000-series ambulance, driving it off of a bridge to destroy a UAV drone in mid-air. The ambulance was badly wrecked, but Hobbs managed to use a gun to shoot at Jakande’s helicopter.

Land Rover Defender
Fast & Furious

In The Fate of the Furious’ first action sequence, Hobbs enlisted help from Dom, Letty, Roman, Tej, and Ramsey to retrieve a stolen EMP device from a military outpost in Berlin. Hobbs used a dark-colored Land Rover Defender to carry out the mission while the others drove grey Dodge Challenger Demons. The group was successful until Dom shockingly crashed into Hobbs’ vehicle to steal the EMP device for cyberterrorist Cipher. Because of the wreck, Hobbs was arrested and taken to the same high-security prison that housed Deckard Shaw.

International MXT
Fast & Furious

Mr. Nobody later let Hobbs and Shaw out of prison, recruiting them both to find Dom to take down Cipher. Hobbs reunited with the others in New York City, where Dom headed for a special mission. Little Nobody gave the team access to a warehouse that held dozens of vehicles at the ready. Hobb’s fittingly chose an International MXT truck with a digital camo paint job. Hobbs and the team managed to corner Dom on the city streets, holding his car in place using grappling hooks. Dom then freed himself by targeting their cars one-by-one before he allowed himself to escape.

Dodge Ice Ram
Fast & Furious

Following the encounter in New York City, the group turned their sights to Russia to thwart Cipher’s plan to commandeer a  submarine to use its nuclear missiles. Hobbs drove a Dodge Ram truck converted with treads instead of tires to travel on the ice. The behemoth of a vehicle also had a roll cage, armored plating, and a plow, which came in handy to push aside Russian troops. Hobbs also used the truck to push a moving torpedo into an enemy vehicle before Dom rejoined his team by turning the tables on Cipher.

Vehicles Driven By Dwayne Johnson In Hobbs & Shaw
Fast & Furious

To follow in the Fast & Furious franchise’s footsteps, Hobbs & Shaw featured a handful of extremely noteworthy cars. Hobbs was never one to drive flashy cars, siding with something with strength rather than speed. The same mindsight went into the spinoff film, seeing as Hobbs tended to get behind the wheel of vehicles with brute power. Here’s everything Johnson drove in Hobbs & Shaw:

1981 Ford Bronco – Hobbs used a Ford Bronco as his everyday vehicle while driving around Los Angeles before the CIA recruited him for a special mission. Harley-Davidson Softail GTB – Before leaving Los Angeles, Hobbs used his customized Harley-Davidson to threaten a few bad guys at a local tattoo parlor. 2020 Jeep Gladiator – Hobbs used the silver Jeep pickup truck when he brought Shaw and Hattie to his family’s home in Samoa. MAN KAT1 – The off-road high-mobility truck was taken from the Moscow base so that Hobbs, Shaw, and Hattie could escape with a device that could potentially extract the deadly virus threatening the latter. 1966 Peterbilt Truck – Hobbs and Shaw used the modified semi-truck for the spinoff’s final action-packed sequence.

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.

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.

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

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.
