The Fast and the Furious franchise has had a massive impact on the car world since the first film came out in 2001. The first four movies have influenced a whole generation of car enthusiasts and changed the way some people think about tuner cars. Fast Five, the latest installment in the series is set to premiere on April 29.
And what better way to enjoy opening night of the new film than by rolling up in one of the actual cars from the series? We found five of the cars for sale right now on AutoTrader.com and AutoTraderClassics.com. Just save the racing for the track, Ok?
Car: 1996 Acura Integra GS-R
Movie: The Fast and the Furious (2001)
What you can do with it: Yell “Monica!” at every car that passes you.
Filmmakers used this 1996 Acura Integra to promote the original Fast and Furious movie. The prop car used in the movie was destroyed, so this replica was made by the production company to stand in its place. The car is signed by musician Ja Rule, who drove the other car in the film. It also comes with pictures and memorabilia from The Fast and The Furious. With a Polk 12-inch subwoofer and full exhaust system, people are likely to hear the car before they can even spot its distinctive red and yellow paint.
Car: 1991 Nissan 240SX
Movie: Fast and Furious (2009)
What you can do with it: Go around corners sideways in massive clouds of smoke
This Nissan 240SX was built as both a drift and show car. It made its debut at the SEMA custom auto show, and has been extensively modified since then. It made an appearance in Fast and Furious, the fourth film in the series. It served mostly as an extra, but make no mistake, this car is no backup performer. The engine has been swapped for a turbocharged Japanese unit, and the car has more modifications than a real housewife of Orange County.
Car: 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Movie: 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
What you can do with it: Enjoy cruising with your favorite attractive companion.
Tyrese drove this Mitsubishi Eclipse in the first sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious. It is one of four similar cars from the movie, and this is the only car that actually has a manual transmission. The museum selling the car is asking $25,990. The Eclipse starred alongside Paul Walker’s 2001 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, which recently sold at the Barrett Jackson Collector Car Auction for $24,200.
Car: 1973 Chevrolet Camaro
Movie: Fast and Furious (2009)
What you can do with it: According to the sellers, this car was designed to do wheelies, so that seems like a good place to start.
This Chevrolet Camaro has an interesting story. The car it’s based off of, called the F-Bomb, is the custom ride of Hotrod Magazine’s chief editor. The original car produces over 1,500 horsepower, and it has a massive reputation among the hotrodding community. This replica was used by the filmmakers for the fourth Fast and Furious movie. Its 350 horsepower falls a little short of the original, but it has something the real F-Bomb does not: Exposure on the silver screen.
Car: 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Movie: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
What you can do with it: Win over the girlfriends of spoiled jocks.
This is the 1971 Monte Carlo that raced against a Dodge Viper in the opening scene of the third movie, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Its body was designed to make the car look like something a high school student might tinker with in his spare time. The car is still equipped with the rollcage, chassis bracing and special suspension that allowed it to do jumps during filming.
