18 Fast & Furious Cars That Appear In Multiple Movies

If there’s one thing the Fast & Furious franchise is about, it’s family, but the movies are also about flashy and speedy cars, many of which appear in multiple installments. Since the release of The Fast and the Furious in 2001, the franchise has followed a growing ensemble of characters, and just as every one of these players has come and gone, so have their vehicles. Few of them drive the same cars more than once, especially since a lot of Fast & Furious rides are destroyed, so it’s rare for any to make multiple appearances, yet there are also occasional Easter eggs where autos from past movies reappear.

While the focus here is on specific recurring cars, there have been repeated models of vehicles as well as other modes of transport that have shown up in multiple Fast & Furious movies. The submarine from The Fate of the Furious makes a surprise appearance in the cliffhanger ending of Fast X, for instance. Any cars that only returned via flashbacks to previous movies are excluded from the list — unless these revisited moments involve new or reworked footage of the original scenes. Also, while the Fast & Furious franchise features multiple Chevrolet Caprices and Ford Crown Victorias as police and taxi vehicles, they’re left off the list as well.

Dominic’s 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

“Nine-hundred horses of Detroit muscle.” If there’s one iconic car from the Fast & Furious movies, it’s Dominic Toretto’s black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, which he built with his dad as a kid. Following its introduction in The Fast and the Furious, where Dom totaled the car during a chase-turned-race with Brian, the Charger returned in Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Furious 7, F9, and Fast X. The car seemed to be destroyed multiple times, but like the franchise’s main “family” characters, Dom’s Charger will never die. While Dom drives a lot of cars in the Fast & Furious movies, this is the one he’ll always be best known for.

Another car introduced in the original movie, Dom’s 1970 Chevelle SS made its debut during the post-credits scene at the end of The Fast and the Furious. At that time, the car was red and black, and that’s how it looked in Fast & Furious when Dom drove it to Letty’s funeral. Dom later painted the vehicle gray for the audition race, which it barely survived as he drove it to a win. The Chevelle was then sacrificed, however, so that Dom could escape Fenix. In The Fate of the Furious, Dom purchased a near-identical Chevelle. Then in Fast X, he was seen building the same car with his son.

Brian’s 1994 Toyota Supra MK IV

One of the other notable cars in The Fast and the Furious is the 1994 Toyota Supra MK IV, which Brian got from a junkyard and brought to Dom. After it was restored, Brian drove the car during the movie’s climax, ultimately racing against Dom and his 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. At the end of The Fast and the Furious, Brian gave Dom the keys to the Supra, allowing him to evade arrest and flee to Mexico. While it never reappeared in any other Fast & Furious feature, the Supra received a mention in The Turbo Charged Prelude for 2 Fast 2 Furious as having been abandoned by Dom.

Han’s 2001 Nissan Silvia S15 Spec-S

Referred to as the “Mona Lisa” in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Han’s 2001 Nissan Silvia S15 Spec-S was loaned to Sean when the kid needed a car to race Takashi in. Unfortunately, the car was damaged beyond repair while Sean attempted his first drift race. Its still-destroyed status was confirmed in the director’s cut of F9: The Fast Saga. During an extra scene where Letty and Mia broke into Han’s old garage in Tokyo, the Silvia could be seen still wrecked.

Han’s 1997 Mazda RX-7

Making its first appearance in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Han’s 1997 Mazda RX-7 technically only appeared in one part of the franchise. However, this sequence was revisited in multiple Fast & Furious movies, with the car reappearing each time. In Tokyo Drift, it was driven by Han as he attempted to evade Takashi. In that third installment, which is the sixth Fast & Furious movie chronologically, Han crashed the Maza and was presumed to be dead. At the end of Fast & Furious 6, Deckard Shaw was revealed to have crashed into Han’s Mazda, and in Furious 7, the car was seen again in a flashback.

Similar to Han’s Mazda RX-7 reappearing in Fast & Furious for a retcon of the character’s death from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, the 1992 Mercedes S-Klasse that was involved in the same crash also returned. In the later appearance, Deckard Shaw was shown to exit the Mercedes, throw Dom’s cross into the wreckage, and walk away as Han’s car blew up.

Dominic’s 1970 Plymouth Road Runner

This one was also originally Han’s car. Dom told Sean that he won his 1970 Plymouth Road Runner from his friend a few years earlier. The car first appeared at the end of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift when Dom appears for his cameo. The same scene was revisited and extended in Furious 7 as Dom talked more about Han and also drove the Road Runner while racing Sean for fun. Dom drove another 1970 Plymouth Road Runner in Furious 7 when he followed Deckard Shaw from Hans’s funeral in Los Angeles, but it was a different car.

Letty’s 1970 Plymouth Road Runner

Not to be confused with the 1970 Plymouth Road Runner that Dom has in Tokyo, this car was driven by Letty when she flipped over multiple times and was presumed to be killed during Fast & Furious. That supposed death scene was revisited in Fast & Furious 6, this time with Letty shown crawling out of the Road Runner before Fenix lit the car on fire.

Mia’s 2003 Acura NSX

Fast & Furious ended with Dom sentenced to prison and riding in a transport bus. Mia, Brian, Leo, and Santos followed the bus with three cars, one of them being Dom’s iconic 1970 Dodge Charger, driven by Brian. Another was a 2003 Acura NSX with Mia behind the wheel. The fourth Fast & Furious movie concluded with a cliffhanger as Mia and Brian swerved their cars in front of the prison transport bus. Then the next installment, Fast Five, opened with a continuation of the same scene, with Mia still driving the Acura NSX as part of the gang’s plan to break Dom free.

2 Modified Dodge Charger SRT-8s
2010 Dodge Charger SRT-8

After the Fast & Furious family stole four 2011 Dodge Charger SRT-8s from the Rio police station in Fast Five, they repainted and modified two for the bank vault heist. Brian and Dom drove the two reworked Chargers as they hauled the vault through the streets of Rio. These cars, along with numerous police vehicles and Hernan Reyes’s Volkswagen Touareg SUVs, were again seen in a revised version of the sequence during the opening of Fast X.

Dominic’s 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8
Fast and Furious Dom Dodge Challenger SRT8

Having purchased the vehicle in the Canary Islands, Dom drove a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 at the end of Fast Five when he raced Brian for fun. The two raced again in Fast & Furious 6, both of them in the same cars.

Brian’s 2010 Nissan GT-R R35
Brian races Dominic on a cliff in Fast and Furious 6

This is the car that Brian drove when he raced Dom in the Dodge Challenger at the end of Fast Five. Brian drove his Nissan GT-R R35 again at the start of Fast & Furious 6 when he raced Dom and the Dodge Challenger a second time. Never mind that the car used in the later sequel was a 2011 model.

Dominic’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda

Another car from 1970 that made multiple appearances in the Fast & Furious movies, a black 1970 Plymouth Barracuda made its first showing at the end of Fast & Furious 6 parked in front of Dom’s Los Angeles home. The car returned in Furious 7 as Dom drove Letty to Race Wars to help her regain her memories. Letty also drove the Barracuda later in the movie when she and Ramsey evaded a drone while Ramsey attempted to shut down the God’s Eye device.

Owen Shaw’s Flip Car

This stunt car was used by the villainous Owen Shaw and his crew during their efforts to build the Nightshade weapon in Fast & Furious 6. Featuring a ramp in the front, the car could ram the Fast & Furious family’s vehicles and flip them. The “Flip Car” later made a cameo in Deckard Shaw’s garage in Fast X.

Dominic’s 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum

Like the Fast & Furious family, Dom’s 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum has traveled the globe. The car was first shown in The Fate of the Furious, located at the crew’s hideout in Berlin where Ramsey sat on its hood. Dom then brought the Tantrum to London, as it was next seen outside his and Letty’s farmhouse in F9. In the same movie, the Tantrum appeared in Los Angeles when Dom drove to see Buddy.

Deckard Shaw’s 2017 McLaren 720S

Fast X paid some respect to the spinoff movie Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw by including Deckard Shaw’s 2017 McLaren 720S in his safe house. The sports car was prominently featured in Hobbs & Shaw driven by Deckard around London. But it didn’t seem likely to make any reappearances in the franchise since its tires were destroyed and the vehicle abandoned as a result following a chase sequence where Deckard, his sister Hattie, and Luke Hobbs evaded the villainous Brixton Lore.

Jakob’s 1992 Ford Mustang
Dom vs Jakob flashback race in Fast X

During the flashback to Dom and Jakob’s younger years in F9, the two brothers race for the latter’s fate. Dom drives a 1967 Dodge Charger while Jakob is in a 1992 Ford Mustang. Jakob loses and is forced to leave Los Angeles. In Fast X, the same Mustang was used for humor when Jakob rescued Little B, who thought his uncle’s ride was a Dodge Ram parked nearby. Instead, it turned out that Jakob was still driving his old car, though he ultimately abandoned it at a gas station when he headed to the airport with his nephew. Perhaps it could return again in the next 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.
