Fast & Furious 4: The Cars and Trucks | Edmunds.com
FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=143967 Opens Friday, April 3!!! In the movie business, cars are expendable. They're not respected, nowhere near cherished, subject to abuse and constantly thrashed. It doesn't matter if the cars are Ferraris or Ford Crown Vics, the job of any vehicle in a movie is to tell the story effectively - even if it must be destroyed in order to do so. And in a movie like Fast & Furious (opening April 3) the cars do a lot of storytelling. We should know; we went behind the scenes. In October of 2007, Dennis McCarthy was hired as the picture car coordinator for Fast & Furious, and after leasing a 60,000-square-foot shop in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and hiring a staff of mechanics and fabricators, he got started building the 240 or so cars that would be needed for the production - to portray about a dozen on-screen cars tied to a character. After all, duplicates were needed of every car to ensure the production never had to slow down; to perform specific stunts; and to be wrecked in the most spectacular way possible. Using documentation from the production's picture car department and in-person interviews with McCarthy and his hard-working team of fabricators, Inside Line has created the most comprehensive guide to this year's hottest movie cars. Here it is: Inside Line's guide to the cars and trucks of Fast & Furious.

Hurst Hemi Challenger | 2008 SEMA Show | Edmunds.com
FOR MORE SEMA COVERAGE: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=131266 CHATSWORTH, California - Hurst gets its turn in the barrel with the new Dodge Challenger, readying a 2009 Hurst/Hemi Challenger for a splashy debut at the 2008 SEMA Show. The tuner says it takes a Dodge Challenger SRT8 and beefs it up to 500-plus horses. Hurst said the Hurst/Hemi Challenger will be available in four trim levels through participating Dodge dealers. Details include five-spoke Hurst alloy wheels and a classic pistol-grip Hurst shifter. Pricing has not yet been announced for the four trim levels. But Hurst spokesman Ron Flint said the special model will add a minimum $10,000 premium to the Challenger. "We are targeting a range of $10,000-$20,000 MSRP above the cost of the vehicles for Stages 1 through 3," he said in an e-mail to Inside Line. "Stage 4 will come later and is a built-to-order model that can range much higher depending on special options like special paint colors."
