Anyone interested in a test drive? Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Cars in the Fast and Furious Franchise.

For this list, we’ll be looking at cars from the series that are… (for lack of a better description) absolutely insane. Whether they’re iconic, fast, stylish or just sound incredible, any car that left a lasting impression on audience members is eligible for this list. Buckle your seatbelt.


#10: 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

“2 Fast 2 Furious” (2003)


First seen in the audition race hosted by Carter Verone and owned by Darden, this car later transfers ownership to Roman and Brian when they decide that they need more muscle. Thanks to a half-empty bottle of NOS positioned under the passenger’s seat, the Challenger delivers one of the most famous and quotable scenes in the franchise, when Roman ejects his passenger out of the car. With a striking burnt orange color, this car’s hard to miss, and sure to stand out in any setting. “Ejecto seato, cuz!”


#9: 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Stingray

“Fast Five” (2011)


This car might only get a little screen time, but it certainly makes a BIG impression. Dom and Brian are in a... spot of trouble while aboard a moving train. Dom steals the Corvette Grand Sport and drives it off the train with a hard landing, but quickly regains control, showing off the vehicle’s impressive handling and speed. Dom catches up to Brian, who jumps into the Corvette just before the car he’s holding onto gets utterly demolished. Sadly, with nowhere else to go, it proves a short ride, as the car flies off the cliff. Nonetheless, it went out in style, making for one of the most iconic scenes in franchise history.


#8: Flip Car [aka Ramp Car]

“Fast and Furious 6” (2013)


Owen Shaw and his crew mean business - just look at the crazy-looking vehicles they employ. In terms of design, this one’s a veritable Frankenstein of parts. Despite its minimal, utilitarian appearance, the car weighs a staggering 3,900 pounds. What really sets this vehicle apart however, is the ramp on the front end, which features a flap, activated with the click of a button, to send cars flipping in the air. We see the devastation it’s capable of when Owen Shaw evades the law on the streets of London, driving head first into police and launching them skywards, creating obstacles for the pursuers who struggle to avoid the airborne wrecks.


#7: 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR

“Fast Five” (2011)


When you’re a millionaire, have a love for cars, and can afford pretty much anything you want, it makes sense to snag a car that’s incredibly rare. Roman does just that, flaunting his sweet ride and the exclusive status it brings him to his pal, Tej. It’s with a lot self-satisfaction that he states that he has the only one in the western hemisphere. Tej breaks it to him that there are actually two, and in fact, he’s the guy with the other one. But hey, when you’re talking about a car this cool, the more the merrier, right? We’d be excited just to see one!


#6: Mazda RX-7 VeilSide Fortune [aka 1997 Mazda RX-7 FD]
“The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” (2006)


The sound of this car... is incredible. It’s also breathtakingly beautiful, and most importantly, wicked fast. Like… really fast, with an extremely expensive body kit. It’s just one of the various cars which Han uses to cruise the streets of Tokyo. We can’t help but get a little nervous when Han uses it to teach Sean to drift, but thankfully, Sean doesn’t wreck it like he does the Nissan Silvia, proving in the process that he’s becoming a competent racer. Viewers felt two losses when the car was T-boned by that Mercedes S-Class. Damn you Deckard Shaw… damn you.


#5: 2014 Lykan Hypersport

“Furious 7” (2015)


The fate of this gorgeous W Motors car is devastating. It’s owned by a prince in Abu Dhabi and resides in a skyscraper. Yeah we know, it’s expensive and rare, but still, a car like that needs to be driven. Escaping Shaw, Dom gets into this sleek automobile, which is an extreme deviation from the usual muscle cars he drives. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of room in the penthouse for the Lykan to spread its wings, but it astonishes in another way, by getting driven out of one building and into another… twice, before slamming into the ground.


#4: 1994 Toyota Supra MK IV

“The Fast and the Furious” (2001)


How could we not talk about Brian’s car in the film that started it all? He owes Dom a ten-second car, and this car is it. With a new engine and a new exterior, sure enough, it wins a lot of races for Dom. Toward the end of the film, Dom finds out about Brian’s actual occupation. Dom’s charger and Brian’s Supra go head to head. They both narrowly avoid being wiped out by a train, but the charger is demolished by a truck. Brian then gives Dom the keys to the Supra to escape.


#3: 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback

“The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” (2006)


This Ford Mustang appears in Tokyo Drift and is originally owned by Sean’s father. After Han’s death, Sean brings that old mustang to life, installing a Skyline GT-R RB26DETT engine salvaged from the Nissan Silvia he had driven - and wrecked - in a previous race against Takashi. It was a weird sight for the viewers to see them put a Japanese engine in a muscle car, but it creates one hell of a custom-built speed machine. Sean wins the race and is proclaimed the new Drift King behind the wheel of this unforgettable ride.


#2: 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34

“2 Fast 2 Furious” (2003)


This is Brian O’Conner’s signature car, and easily one of the most iconic rides of the Fast and Furious franchise. First appearing in the Turbo-Charged Prelude to the second film, Brian gives it a paint job and works on it underneath, before using it in a number of races. Unfortunately, Brian is caught after finishing a race thanks to a freaking electromagnetic pulse harpoon being fired into the Skyline, and the car is impounded following his arrest. It’s a real shame the car didn’t have more screen time, but Brian would go on to drive more Skylines in the series.




Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few Honorable Mentions.



Ford GT40

“Fast Five” (2011)


2002 Nissan Fairlady Z33 (350Z)

“The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” (2006)



1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS

“Fast & Furious” (2009)


#1: 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

“The Fast and the Furious” franchise (2001-)


This is Dom Toretto’s signature car, and arguably the most recognizable of the series as well. Dom has a connection to it, as it was his father’s before him, with the two of them working on it together when Dom was just a kid. Perhaps that’s why he keeps coming back to it, no matter how many times the charger gets destroyed. Over the course of the franchise, the car has undergone various iterations and changes. Who can forget the off-road version in “Furious 7”? When the crew needs different cars in the sixth movie, Dom, of course, picks another Charger; the Daytona. But hey, you can’t beat that classic look.
