Fast & Furious 4: Subaru WRX STi
MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
What's a Fast and Furious movie without some obvious product placement? And
in Fast & Furious, the most obvious product placement is Subaru's WRX STI.
The Subie got its role in F&F when the picture car coordinator went looking
for a new, high-performance, rally-type car for FBI agent Brian O'Connor
(super-dreamy Paul Walker) to drive near the film's climax. Basically it
was a choice between the Mitsubishi Evo X and the WRX STI, and Subaru was
the first one to say it would supply cars. So Subaru it was.
Subaru gave a total of seven brand-new WRX STI models to the production in
exchange for prominent placement in the film. But just because they were
zero-mile cars doesn't mean that they were treated with any respect by the
picture car department. After all, what matters in movie-making is getting
the movie made, not making sure any Subaru survives unscratched.
So all the Subies had their interiors stripped, all were fitted with
straightforward tuner-style modifications from Perrin, Cobb Tuning and
Veilside, and then they were sent out to work on the set. Of the seven, one
was cut up into an engine-less filming buck and five were destroyed during
filming. The remaining car is in a warehouse awaiting another shot at fame.
