2 Fast 2 Furious


Cars from 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)


1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R (GT-BNR34)


The Nissan Skyline GT-R is a classic "grey market" car; never sold by Nissan in the US, but enterprising individuals can use some legal loopholes to acquire one and make it street legal. It's not particularly well known to non-aficianados, but to those in the know the Skyline is a legend. Think of it as Nissan's Mustang and you begin to get the idea.


2001 Honda S2000


A rare roadster makes an appearance in the Fast & Furious series, but this Honda is no mere boulevard cruiser. The stock version of the S2000 was a lightweight, perfectly balanced sports car. Suki's car has a Veilside body kit, a custom pink paint job, and a great big bottle of nitrous in the trunk.


1994 Mazda RX-7


Another RX-7 makes the list, and for good reason. The third generation of Mazda's famous sports car was Motor Trend's Car of the Year in 1993. That was the same year that Playboy magazine tested it against a Dodge Viper and judged the RX-7 to be the better car. This particular car doesn't get much respect though; Orange Julius drives it into a billboard while racing Brian's Skyline.


2000 Acura NSX


This NSX makes a very brief appearance in 2 Fast 2 Furious. We only ever see it sitting outside Tej's (Ludacris) garage, because Tej doesn't really race anymore. But it does have a sweet custom Louis Vuitton pattern, and so we're including it on this list.


2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII


The Evolution series is Mitsubishi's sporty version of what would otherwise be a mundane economy car. The Evos have become a mainstay in the World Rally circuit, and if you've ever played Gran Turismo you've probably seen the dozens of different Evos featured in the game. In fact, the Gran Turismo games helped popularize the Evo series in the US, and Brian's version isn't the last one we'll see in the series.


2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Spyder


Since the second film in the franchise takes place in Miami, the filmmakers obviously thought some ragtops were needed, and so we see Suki's S2000 and this purple racer. Both Roman's Eclipse and Brian's Evo are wired with GPS tracking devices, which leads to their need for the next two cars on this list.


1970 Dodge Challenger R/T


If you saw Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, then you got to see a Challenger in one of the greatest car chases in recent film history. Tarantino used a white Challenger as an homage to Vanishing Point, but in any color, the Challenger was a hot car (even without the ejector seat seen in 2 Fast 2 Furious).


1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko sYc


Muscle car fans like to talk down to the import tuner crowd by saying "there's no replacement for displacement," and it's cars like the Yenko Camaro that back up that kind of talk. In case you were wondering, the sYc stands for Yenko Super Car.

I didn't like the new Fast and Furious movie, thought it was mediocre, though if u are a fan of the series then you'll like it. Also the Dodge Charger IS the coolest one.

Jokerboy, I agree with you on the Charger, at least in the first movie. But I have to say I'm also partial to the Skylines and the Yenko Camaro.

You've gotta love the Skyline that blows the hot ladies' skirts up. also the 98 skyline is soo beasty. love skylines.
Same with later 90's supras, love em.
Since Suburu went with the permanent change to the WRX STi body and made it a hatchback back in....idk 07 or 08 model, i haven't liked them as much. i love the STi sedan models.
I also gotta show some love to the old muscle cars like the Charger and Chevelle SS.

I've also been wondering for a long time why Mazda has not made a 'mazdaspeed' version of the RX-8. they've done it with the Miata, 3, and 6 (which my family owns), but why not RX-8? idk. RX-8 certainly deserves to be much faster and sportier like its predecessor the RX-7. i've driven an RX-8 was definitely not impressed. not a big fan of the rotary engine (also bad gas mileage) for a reg driver cuz it needs to be constantly revved so high.

They shold've just put the new Nissan GT-R in the new movie, whoever has that car just wins all, it would undoubtedly smoke the shi.t out of any car in those 4 movies, best car on the planet.

The reason why it would be a shame to have the new Nissan GT-R as a replacement of the GT-BNR34 is because exactly that. The motor alone, that particular inline 6 is what made that car so popular. The GT-R is a V6 and has no comparison to power, or bolt on capability of the R34.

What about the Saleen Mustang in 2F2F? The one that got murdered by the semi? Saleen Mustangs are my favorite muscle cars all around. Even though I drive an '03 Lancer EVO VIII, I still love me some American muscle! You kind of miss the torque ripping the rear of your car out from underneath of you.

They said the saleen mustang was not acually a saleen, just had the appearance of one, I think it was to just save money. So we can all breath easier knowing all that extra cash wasn't wasted. lol

I like Mazda a lot though, have had a Miata (great car), the first model of the Mazda 6 (such a great car) and the Mazdaspeed 6 is pretty sick, when the turbo kicks in mannnnn....Didn't mean to come off as hating on the RX-8 its a nice car, I meant I wasn't too impressed with the performance I thought it would be better, but I think it deserves a sporty Mazdaspeed tune up! =)

Haha sorry for the multiple posts I just love cars =)

I agree with the original author, the F&F movies are about the cars. I loved that Orange Supra so much (from the first film) I ended up buying a stock 93 on ebay. It was a twin turbo and then I just recently did a single turbo conversion on it. 500 horsepower at the wheels :)

Lucky you! Supras are hard to find, especially twin turbo 6 speed manuals. If you find one it is usually very expensive also, it's basically a collector's item now.

Easily the hottest car in the entire series (up to the 3rd movie, haven't seen the 4th yet) is the Veilside 1997 RX-7. The RX-7 is one of my all time favourite cars and typically I hate what tuners do to the car. However, the combination of the ultra-wide body and the orange and black colour scheme and I just loved it.

In a distant second, I'd probably have to say Paul Walker's first car, the 1996 Eclipse. The colour was wild for its day and it just started it all.

Nicholas Fersch

The best "car" was the F-150 Lightning being used as a parts hauler in the first movie that probably could have outrun 90% of the "fast" cars in the rest of the film. :-P

I haven't watched the movies, but just from checking out the cars on the list, I'd rank 'em like this:
1. Yenko Camaro
2. Challenger
3. Charger
4. F-Bomb
5. Chevelle
6. Buick Grand National
7. Mustang (without the dumb motor)
8. Torino
9. Everything else.

frogleg i understand u don't like imports but don't hate on a motor that puts out 330whp in stock configuration and can put 700 down with mere bolt ons, all out of a 2.6 liter...seriously wat did it come with stock a 289 that put out 170hp?? and gets 17mpg??

RB26DETT (factory rated at ~280HP..) also weighs ~700 pounds (fully dressed).. the 289/302/351 can also put down serious power with "mere bolt ons".. HP/L is a worthless measurement of performance(It also gives little in regard to efficiency, especially with forced induction), try power/weight.. And i would say 600 hp at the crank is more reasonable than "700 down". The Hi-Po 302..in '64.. made 271 HP.. Boss 302 in '69.. under-rated at 290, and weight

apparently cant use less than or greater than on rotten tommatoes. Boss 302 is under 600, modern 5.0s are often under 500. Why would you say "don't hate" then knock an engine thats been in the GT40, Shelby Cobra, and GT350..

Apr 4 - 07:09 PM

edwin mora

the rb26dett was underrated as well...many have been dynoed in stock configuration and put out numbers well over 300...i have a sr20det powered 240sx and i actually beat a 289 powered mustang...a v8 nova as well...torque can only get you so far..and i still get 27mpg

i like big blocks too i just dont like the hating on imports. everyone has their own taste in cars i was mad cause he hated on a great engine...it was just a movie...omg a jdm engine in an american car!! ford guys put chevys engines in their rides all the time..stop the hate!!

mixed make cars are more of a hot rodders thing than a "ford guy","chevy guy".. or "nissan guy" thing.. Ive seen LSX powered 240s (z and sx), im pretty sure a windsor ford v8 one too (actually an LSX has really been in everything..normally do to their lightness, cheapness, and tremendous aftermarket), could not imagine those people wanting to be addressed as "nissan guys".. an engine swap like that is going to always bother someone, o well.

I agree... dont disrespect a legendary muscle with a import engine... it doesn't matter what it puts out, its all bout the respect the Fastback deserves... American Muscle was meant to have nothing smaller than a V8... The Chargers is hands down the greatest car of all of them an the only one to go through hell an back...

The Yenko Camaro is by FAR the best car in the series. All other discussions are null and void! I would gladly trade in my beloved 69' SS Camaro for Yenko!

My rankings:

1) Yenko Super Camaro
2) 1970 Dodge Challenger
3) 1970 Chevelle
4) Buick GNX
5) F-Bomb Camaro
6) 1970 Dodge Charger

You guys can have the rest.

these movies were supposed to be inspired by import tuning scene.. hondas,acuras, eclipses.... why is so much enphasis being put on the american muscle cars?.. altho i personally love the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS... i think the best car of the 1st series was hectors hatchback.. that was a bad *** lil ride.. skylines tho have to be the best cars..especially in the tuning world.

I am a huge Mustang fan but I'm going to say that the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is the best car in the series (the first one and the second one). I still do like that Mustang though even if it did have a tuner engine implant.
