Are you a Fast and Furious super fan? You should probably check out this Fast and Furious trivia and see if you really are as Furious as you say you are.

This is an extensive list of all the coolest cars used in The Fast and The Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, Furious 7, and The Fate of the Furious. The final film in the car-racing franchise, Furious 7, is not only a thrill ride for car aficionados, but also a moving tribute to the late Paul Walker, the beloved actor who died in a car crash, with only half of his scenes for this movie completed at the time. This franchise became so popular not just because of its over-the-top action sequences but because audiences around the world fell in love with the characters. We all feel like we're a part of the "family" too. why don't you take a look and see who other fans voted their favorite Fast and Furious series characters and you can vote for your favorite as well!
Of course the 1970 Dodge Charger, the 1999 Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R, and the 1973 F-Bomb Chevrolet Camaro are on this list of fast cars. You gotta hand it to the marketing guys with their "creativity," right? Vote for the cars you would want to take for a joy ride the most. And who knows, maybe one day you'll be lucky enough to do just that.
1999 Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R
Brian O’Connor’s Skyline wasn’t the first Skyline to appear in The Fast and the Furious franchise (that honor belongs to “Big Bird,” the yellow, grey market import R33 that briefly appeared in the original), but the R34 would go on to become the signature ride of Paul Walker’s character.
It showed up in the opening sequence of 2 Fast 2 Furious, and lasted all of ten minutes before it was wrecked. But what a glorious ten minutes it was! If you pay close attention during that sequence, you can actually see the GT-R’s incredible HICAS rear-steering system at work, allowing it to pull off some of the most stunning handling maneuvers ever committed to film.
Since then, despite having seen a few Mitsubishis come and go, Brian O’Connor has forever been associated with Nissan and the GT-R badge.
It might not be the fastest car in the series, but is there a more iconic car than Vin Diesel’s original Dodge Charger from the first Fast and the Furious movie? The “star car” used for close-ups had a functionally blown Hemi while the other three that were wrecked for stunts used 440 big blocks.
Part of what made Dom’s black Charger special is that it stood out amid a sea of brightly colored buzz-boxes. Without a doubt, it's one of the most iconic cars in the history of the franchise and one of the most beloved cars in the history of film.
1995 Toyota Supra Turbo MkIV
If any car from the first movie could lay claim to being legitimate competition for Dom’s Charger, it’s the 2JZ Supra that Paul Walker spent most of the film building. The Turbo Supra was then and remains Japan’s muscle-car king. Wheelies aside, the last race of the movie is pretty plausible as long as you don’t look at the Supra’s rear tires. With a decent set of drag slicks, two stages of nitrous, and some standard engine tuning, this orange sticker vector could probably keep up with Dom’s Charger on its best day.
The day of the last race, however, wasn't its best, considering that it threw a rod just before hitting a truck. Still, this Japanese muscle cars broke the stereotype most Americans held about Japanese iron. Or, aluminum, as it were.
1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse
As the first non-Civic depicted in the entire series, Paul Walker’s original lime green 1995 Eclipse has certainly earned a special place in our hearts. Brian O’Connor’s Bomex-equipped GS (sadly, not GSX or even GS-T) practically created the modern body kit industry in the United States. A true credit to the Eclipse name.
On the other end of the spectrum was Tyrese’s hilariously awful Spyder. Sorry, Mitsubishi, but all the product placement in the world won’t convince us that the third-gen Eclipse wasn’t a terrible car.
The Mazda RX-7 FD is one of a few cars to show up in the series twice, but it’s the FD’s appearance as Dom’s first car in the first movie that many will remember. Although Mazda’s incredible rotary was shown a bit out of its element in the drag race scenes, it’s always been known as one of the best-handling cars ever produced.
Shame viewers only got to see it turn two corners before Dom parked it. Of course, that might have been for the best, considering how likely RX-7s are to fall apart when pushed to the limit. Oh well, at least we got to see some great footage of it drifting during the second appearance.
Tyrese’s Challenger R/T from 2 Fast 2 Furious is one of many brutal Mopars to appear in the series. Alongside the equally awesome Yenko Camaro in the same movie, the orange Challenger gets higher billing simply because it started one of the funniest recurring gags of the entire series: Tyrese’s deadpan expressions after he gets played. Classic.
