Fast & Furious 4: Ford Gran Torino | Edmunds.com

Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=144127 What Clint Eastwood did for the 1972 Gran Torino in Gran Torino, Fast & Furious will try to undo. Because in this movie, the very nastiest bad guy - you know, the chief henchman who does the dirtiest deeds and dies just before the big boss bad guy gets his - drives a '72 Gran Torino Sportsroof. The inspiration for the Gran Torino in Fast & Furious comes from a similar Torino built for Dan Widmann at Steve Strope's Pure Vision Design - the same shop from which emerged the Hammer Road Runner that's also featured in the film. Strope brought Widmann's Torino to a casting session and a star - well, a co-star - was born. The one significant visual change between Widmann's Torino and the replicas built for the film is that Widmann's car is blue, and the bad guy Torinos were painted green. It seems that blue was already assigned as super-dreamy Paul Walker's color in Fast & Furious, so the bad attitude character "Fenix Rise" (played by Laz Alonzo) would have to wear green. Little matter, however, as the Gran Torino looks dang good in green. To portray Fenix's FoMoCo, the picture car department acquired six '72 Torino Sportsroof models and one '73. As with the Charger, some of the stunt cars were fit with Chevy crate V8s and automatic transmissions, but at least one of the cars was originally equipped with a 429 and four-speed manual transmission. Five of the cars were either destroyed during production or ripped apart for parts. Among the Torinos destroyed was that 429 four-speed car. Sometimes evil must be done in order to portray evil.

Fast & Furious 4: Chevy Chevelle SS 454 | Edmunds.com
Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf paul walker, vin diesel, jordana brewster, f&f, Fast5, fast and furious, stunt,stunt car, movie carsAt the end of the first The Fast and the Furious film, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) is seen driving off in a pristine, red 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS454 coupe. Few noticed. However, it isn't a detail overlooked by Fast & Furious picture car coordinator Dennis McCarthy, whose long Southern California hot-rodding career includes quite a few of Chevy's finest midsize cars. So when it came time to put Dom back in the driver seat, the first car that sprang to McCarthy's mind was that Chevelle. And with Dom already in that Chevelle in the first film, McCarthy's logic was impossible for Director Justin Lin and the producers to deny. In Fast & Furious, the Chevelle undergoes a transformation. At the beginning of the film, the car is red with black stripes and in essentially stock condition, cowl induction hood and all. Later, Dom takes the car and twists it into a nasty street racer covered in primer. Here we're dealing strictly with the car as it appears in red. And when it's red, it's stock except for its aftermarket 18-inch wheels. The production hit eBay and the classifieds looking for Chevelles. Eventually McCarthy acquired two well kept and very real big-block-powered 1970 Chevelle SS coupes to portray Dom's classic ride. Both were original SS396s and the primary hero car was an original four-speed. The backup was an automatic. Then McCarthy and team essentially left them alone. Since action with the car in this condition was limited, both cars survived intact and are now in storage.
