Here’s a closer look at the cars of the Fast & Furious Car Pack:

 

1968 Dodge Charger “Fast & Furious” Edition

Under the body of this classic piece of Mopar muscle is a true Pro 2 Trophy truck chassis with massive suspension travel and a race-prepped V8. It’s just the kind of rig to hop curbs like they don’t exist or swing sideways at will.

 

 

1969 Dodge Charger Daytona HEMI “Fast & Furious” Edition

The Daytona HEMI was already fast, but once it has seen some custom wrench work, it is nearly untouchable. Add some big wheels and you have something worthy of Dominic Torretto’s driving skill. Just put your foot down and get ready to shift, because this baby is ready to fly through the gears to victory.

 

 

1970 Ford Escort RS1600 “Fast & Furious” Edition

The Mk1 Ford Escort has a following worldwide that makes it one of the great imports. Sadly, this sporty compact never made it to the states, even in its much tamer non-RS form. In the RS, you get infinitely tunable Cosworth power and suspension and braking that can reel in any apex and take the bite out of any corner.

 

 

2014 Terradyne Gurkha LAPV “Fast & Furious” Edition

The Terradyne Gurka Light Armored Personnel Vehicle (LAPV) is a beast that may not win many races but it will survive just about anything thrown at it including armor piercing bullets and improvised explosives. Under its reinforced steel body is the heart of a Ford F550 truck, along with its 7.3 liter diesel.

 

 

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport C2 “Fast & Furious” Edition

One of the most rare and valuable Corvettes ever built, the Grand Sport was really a racecar in a Corvette’s clothing. Sure it was a production car, but it was produced to race. This is a tube frame chassis with a high-power V8 under the hood. Treat it with respect and you will be rewarded with a ride like no other car ever made. Take the Grand Sport for granted though and this ride will take you for a spin.

 

 

 

1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS “Fast & Furious” Edition

The Eclipse has a large following in the import loving community. Not only is it a car that, with the upgrades you see here, can win races, but its form will keep the crowd’s eyes on you. Win or lose, the Eclipse is a rewarding drive and makes a statement anywhere it goes.

 

 

1995 Toyota Supra RZ “Fast & Furious” Edition

Here it is: the original “10-second car” of film glory. With its 2JZGTE motor under its hood, and an aggressive livery on its flanks, this is just the kind of car that can surprise your opponents – whether you’re on the quarter mile, or bombing around the race track. In the 20 years since its release, it’s quickly elevated itself to JDM classic status.

 

 

1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) “Fast & Furious” Edition

The Nissan Skyline is one of the most treasured JDM icons in car culture. The R34 being one of the most desirable, depending on who you ask. All-wheel-drive, twin-turbos, and all the suspension and braking to keep in out of the barriers. Step inside this Japanese masterpiece for a taste of what has made the Skyline the stuff of JDM dreams.

 

 

2001 Honda S2000 “Fast & Furious” Edition

Honda’s high-revving roadster has been a crowd-pleaser since the first model left the showroom. After all, what’s not to like about a 9,000 rpm redline and VTEC pushing the rear wheels with your head in the sunshine. One thing is for sure, this one is ready to race, and who said pink was only for girls?

 

 

2002 Nissan Fairlady Z “Fast & Furious” Edition

Whether you’re in downtown Tokyo or the mean streets of Long Beach, there’s one language that all car fans understand: drifting. The Fairlady Z is an ideal drifting specimen, with its RWD setup and an engine capable of belting out 480+ horsepower. Then there’s the classic mix of matte and gloss paint, and that the intimidating scarab livery. Think you’ve got what it takes to be the Drift King? Here’s your chance to prove it.
