Fast and FuriousWith the release of the latest installment of the Fast And Furious franchise; Fast And Furious 6, comes the tide of car enthusiasts who can’t wait to get their hands on the latest information about the spectacular cars featured in the film. Many of the vehicles featured in the Fast And Furious films have been American or Japanese, but this particular film features some old style European cars guaranteed to get your heart racing. Here, ExpressInsurance.co.uk has done there research and given you the baddest cars in Fast & Furious 6 this year to look forward to.

Perhaps the star of the show, driven by the actor Vin Diesel who plays Dominic Toretto in the films is the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. This high performance and limited edition model was produced simply for winning NASCAR races and was the first car in NASCAR history to break the 200mph speed mark in 1970. The car featured in the film isn’t an exact replica of the 1969 model and features a shorter nose and rear wing compared to the original. The pop-up headlights proved to be impractical to fix after every stunt so were disregarded, however the car certainly looks the part.

The actress Michelle Rodriguez who plays Letty in the films is lucky enough to drive the 1971 Jensen Interceptor. The 1971 model was one of 232 cars built with a 440 c.i. engine, making it the most powerful car to have ever been built by Jensen, with a 7.2 litre engine and a top speed of 135mph.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class features in the latest Fast And Furious film and is a classic that many fans will appreciate. This box-style car has a multitude of features and a high speed of 109mph. Often referred to as the ‘Wolf’, this car was originally designed as a military vehicle at the suggestion of the Shah of Iran.

The Koenigsegg CCX is perhaps the most visually appealing cars out of the lot, winning a place in the Top 10 Most Beautiful Cars by Forbes Magazine, as well as being designed with economics and global safety in mind. However, this car can reach a speed of 250mph making it the fastest car on the set.

There’s not one car enthusiasts that dislikes a Ferrari, and the Ferrari 360 isn’t a force to be reckoned with. This two-seater classic replaced the F355 by being 28% lighter yet 10% bigger. With a top speed of 189mph, there will be some guaranteed exciting car chases involving the Ferrari 360.

The one car we perhaps didn’t see coming is the Alfa Romeo Guilietta which is considered as a small family car. Not the usual vehicle you’d see in the Fast And Furious franchise but all the same a very stylish machine. This car came second in the European Car of the Year awards which is no easy accomplishment and can reach speeds of up to 135mph, much like the Jensen Interceptor.

There are many more fantastic cars featured in the Fast And Furious 6 film which is proving to be a film franchise that car enthusiasts enjoy thoroughly.

    That’s not a Jensen Interceptor in the Pic – It’s a Jensen FF

    While they share very similar external similarities they are considered separate models due to the radically different engineering between the two models.

    Easy way to spot the difference is the double air vent on the front wing and the bonnet scoop – the Interceptor only had a single air vent and no bonnet scoop

What do you have to say about this?
