Dennis McCarthy is the picture car coordinator for 'The Fate of the Furious'. That means he's the man behind all of the cars from the whole Fast and the Furious franchise, what a job! He gives us his insights on all of the iconic cars from the films we've come to know and love. He takes a look at some of the classics like the Mazda RX-7, 1969 Yenko Camaro, Nissan Skyline GT-R, and the Mitsubishi Lancer.
It's pretty well known that the cast of the Fast and the Furious franchise have become some of the most prominent actors and actresses around due to the series’s massive amounts of success. But we can't forget that the cast wasn't the only part that made the series popular. The cars that appear on screen have become just as memorable as the people behind the wheel. Especially for the people who watch the series mainly for the cars.
With there being 8 films in the ever-evolving storyline now, you can bet that there are almost more cars involved than ever imagined. And of course, a lot of time and work went into making those cars perfect and movie-worthy. And thanks to this video, you can check out every last car that played some role in the movies.
Thanks to this featurette from WIRED, we’re able to catch up with the guy who actually had the responsibility of putting all of the cars together. Because who else would be better to give us the complete rundown of the cars and tell us a little more detail about them. He also explains why exactly he felt that the fit so well in the series.
These are truly one-of-a-kind cars that were literally made for the movies. Heck, some people love them so much that they’ve taken it upon themselves to build replicas of their favorites!
