The 15 Fastest Cars In The Fast And The Furious Franchise, Ranked

Though the Fast and Furious franchise stopped being about racing quite a while back, the films still feature some of the most immaculately-built custom cars. Main man, Dominic Toretto, prefers muscle cars over traditionally designed sports cars and the series has featured some fantastic vintage muscle models, like the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback and the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, which provide exceptional torque, making them ideal for drag racing.

But the franchise that has spanned over two decades has featured quite a few American classics and German and Asian supercars, and these are the fastest cars in the franchise. 

1971 Jensen Interceptor – 139 Mph

This is a touring car, built by tiny Jensen Motors in England. The model used in the film had a California-bought V8 engine and was outfitted with the Magnaflow side exhausts. It has been reported that at one point this car was able to pump out 335bhp of power when the engine was mated to 4-speed manual transmission.

Dennis McCarthy, who engineered and modified many cars for the franchise, wanted this car to feature a moody grey paint to reflect Letty’s dark personal narrative in the movie.

1969 Yenko Camaro SYC – 140 Mph

The limited-edition was equipped with a “special performance package,” featuring an L72 427/425hp engine, special ducted hood, dual exhaust system, and exclusive suspension.

The Yenko Camaro had a 7.0-liter L72 Big-Block engine with nearly 425 horsepower. 

2001 Nissan Silvia S15 Spec-S – 143 Mph

This was McCarthy’s favorite build, and in the film, it was referred to as the ‘Mona Lisa’, to convey how important it was to Sean. This is a drift car, a rear-wheel-drive, front-engined sports coupé, and the naturally aspirated 2-liter, 16V inline-four petrol engine can take the speed up to 62 mph in 8.1 seconds and up to a maximum speed of 143 mph, which provided a pretty good drift.

1969 Dodge Charger Daytona- 156 Mph
1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

This was a starring car in the franchise, especially in Fast & Furious 6. The original Daytona number 88, driven by Buddy Baker, has made history as the first NASCAR vehicle to break 200 mph on the track.

McCarthy and his team reportedly found seven ‘69 Chargers for the film and they were customized with fiberglass and safety components, along with a 420hp LS3 crate engine backed by a Turbo 400 three-speed automatic transmission.

1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 – 156 Mph

In the ’90s, the R33 GT-R was considered “peerless” for its twin-turbo RB26DETT engine. The model is fitted with two parallel ceramic turbochargers and was rated at 276 horsepower with dual-mass airflow sensors and it offered 271 pound-feet of peak torque, which made the car a unique custom specimen.

2001 Honda S2000 – 174.3 Mph

This Honda model was being driven by Devon Aoki’s character, Suki. The custom bubblegum pink car was equipped with a full dose of nitrous behind the seats and its engine is a 2-liter aluminum-alloy DOHC F20C1 inline 4 with a Comptech supercharger.

The engine was left untouched from the factory build and wasn’t amped up, but it didn’t let Suki down when she had to make the audacious bridge jump.

2010 Dodge Charger SRT-8 – 174.3 Mph
2010 Dodge Charger SRT-8

Four Dodge Charger SRT-8 models are seen in Fast Five, and two of them are converted into heist cars. Brian, Dom, Roman, and Han steal four police cars – two of them are modified to be used during the Rio vault heist and they use the other two to blend in with the cops.

The two matte black heist cars had enough strength to actually haul a gigantic metal vault full of money out of a police station, so clearly their torque was superior to the speed, however, these muscle cars were out-and-out performance cars, with 470-horsepower, 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under the hood.

2011 Lexus LFA – 202 Mph
Han and Gisele head to Berlin at the end of Fast Five

Han’s black Lexus LFA only made a brief cameo and he was seen driving around Berlin along with Gisele. The model can jump from 0 to 60 in just 3.6 seconds and can reach speeds of up to 205 mph, which is quite astonishing.

It’s also a supercar, powered by a 4.8 liter V10, and was designed with aluminum and titanium alloy and carbon fiber to stabilize the LF-A and also to let it maintain a low kerb weight.

1966 Ford GT40 Mark II – 205 Mph
Dom inspects the Ford GT40 in Fast Five

The GT40 used in Fast Five is not an actual Ford model, but a replica built solely for the movie. The real one features a 7.0-liter V8 with 500 horsepower and is ideal for long-term races since it has a lot of consistency. For the movie, only one stunt model was designed since the car wasn’t involved in any major stunts, and it was built with a bare-bones crate motor. 

Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 – 209 Mph
Fast & Furious Murciélago lamborghini on a road

Murcielago’s massive 6.5-liter V12 is its biggest asset since it can also achieve a quarter of a mile drag time in under 10 seconds, making it the famed “10-second” car that Dom and Brian kept referencing throughout the franchise.  The car produces roughly 630 horsepower at 8000 rpm – this model was also used for many of the glamor shots in the film.

2015 Lykan Hypersport – 245 Mph

A hypercar is basically a high-functioning supercar, and the uber sleek Lykan HyperSport featured in Furious 7 costs 3.4 million dollars and has expensive diamond headlights.

RELATED: The Fast & Furious Family, Ranked By Likability

The luxury make has a mid-rear positioned, twin-turbocharged Porsche engine generating 750 horsepower, 960nm of torque, and it can go from 0 to 60 in less than three seconds.

2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Edition – 254.61 Mph

With an acceleration of 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, 1,018 horsepower offering an incredible power-to-weight ratio, and a top speed of 250+ mph without rear wing, the CCXR edition from Fast Five was created simply to break track records.

The CCXR Edition is fitted with the Koenigsegg aluminum V8 engine, along with 4 valves per cylinder and double overhead camshafts. 

Dom’s 1968 Dodge Charger R/T – 257 Mph

Dom’s 1970 Charger packs a Hemi engine that’s quite intimidating, at 9.4-liters, and is bolstered by two 2000-horsepower turbochargers. It’s fitted with the MAXIMUS-SB AeroKit that can reach speeds in excess of 260 mph, which also effectively makes it one of the fastest cars in the world.

Roman’s 2011 Bugatti Veyron – 257.8 Mph
Fast & Furious Bugatti Veyron

With a quad-turbocharged W16 producing 1,001 horses and a 0-60 time of just 2.5 seconds, the Veyron can rip up the tarmac. An extra pair of in-tank fuel pumps is a bonus and the seven-speed, dual-clutch automated manual drives are quite enviable. The aluminum-bodied model with a curb weight of 4,400 pounds is also lighter than most supercars, thus contributing to its speed.

Dom’s 1971 Plymouth GTX – 269 Mph
Fast & Furious Dom's 1971 Plymouth GTX in the fate of the furious

This pre-tuned 1971 marked the “end of the muscle car era” since it was one of the final models to work with the old Chrysler Hemi engine. Dom uses it to steal Russian nuclear codes.

The model comes with a supercharged 7.2L V8 engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission that produces 2,000 horsepower and rapid acceleration of up to 100 mph (161 km/h), which makes it the most powerful model in the Forza series.

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.

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.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

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.
