Hollywood movies are incomplete without high-octane car chasing sequences. Some of the most popular movies have featured the best of automobile models over the years. Movie buffs who have seen the popular series such as the James Bond movies know the impact of cars to the success of these movies. However, there is one series of movies, which have transformed the whole concept of racing cars in the modern generation. Yes, you have guessed it right; there is no movie more popular than the Fast and the Furious series when it comes to fast cars. Right from the beginning of the series, this movie has amazed the audience with its plethora of super cars. Ranging from Toyota to Honda cars, this car has had it all when it comes to showcasing super cars. Probably, this is one movie series, which has focussed on the range of cars more than the leading actors in the movies. Here is a list of the top cars used in movies of this series.

1994 Acura Integra: When it comes to cars used in Fast and the Furious, the 1994 Acura Integra. This car was driven by the ravishing Jordana Brewster in the movie, who played the role of Mia Toretto, the sister of Dominic Toretto. The car had been given the ultimate makeover to complement the beautiful Jordana. The best appearance of the car is using it in the hijacking attempt, where you just cannot stop admiring the car.

1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse:  The first race sequence of the uber-cool Paul Walker in the franchise met a not-so-happening end in the first movie. However, all eyes were attracted to the bright green and blue car he was driving. It was the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse that was put into use for the movie. Not only was the car super-fast, but also it was interestingly spruced up to suit the coolness of the character Brian O’Connor. This was an apt car to challenge the machismo of street smart Vin Diesel’s character in the movie and undoubtedly paved the way for the epic line, “It don’t matter whether you win by an inch or a mile; winning’s winning.”

1997 Mazda RX-7: The 1997 Mazda RX-7 was first showcased at the 2005 Tokyo Auto Show. This car was portrayed as the Veilside-tuned sportster model initially. The production house was immediately impressed by the car and its specifications and decided to use the exact model for the part. However, the aesthetics was slightly changed. The production house changed the suave burgundy to the more appealing orange and black to hype the car in front of the audience. Undoubtedly, the car lived up to the expectations and was a stand-out performer in the movie.

1995 Honda Civic: Honda cars have played an important part in the entire movie series. Not that these cars were the fastest among the lot, but definitely, these cars had the looks to go in favour of them. The 1995 Honda Civic was not used for racing purposes, but stole the show when they were filmed with those massive trucks. A number of Civics was used in this sequence and these were synonymous with the best display of cars used in movies.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder: The 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder was another of the super performing cars in the entire range of movies. The car debuted in the second movie of the franchise, “2 Fast 2 Furious” when it was driven by Roman Pearce. The convertible was all decked up in purple and metallic silver and complemented the character quite well. To make things even better, the car was Lowenhart BR-5 allow wheels, Shine Street wide body kit and a rear wing.

1970 Dodge Charger R/T: The 1970 Dodge Charger R/T has to be one of the best models that the movie range ever used. This menacing muscular performance car was nurtured greatly by Dom Toretto as it belonged to his father’s range. Even the iconic Dom accepts to Brian O’Connor that this is one car that even he is scared of driving. The Charger was powered by the super-powered Chrysler 426 HEMI V8 engine, which extended from the bonnet to the blower. Such was the iconic presence of this car that it featured in not one, but two Fast and the Furious movies in all – the first and the fourth.
