For anyone who is a fan of Vin Diesel, fast cars, or the Fast and the Furious franchise, I have a special treat for you. This year, at the Festivals of Speed in Amelia Island, someone brought along the hero car from FF4 and FF5. This Dodge Charger, although set up for movie stunts and lacking a proper Chrysler V8, is the sole surviving car from the film shoots and was used for the beauty shots and promotional material. It has no interior, unless a roll cage, racing seat, and nominal dashboard counts. It’s packing a 350 under the hood with a simulated supercharger (not real), for reliability reasons–and so that parts are easier to come by. Despite these shortcomings, it’s hard not to gawk at this superb looking ride. Enjoy the photos.
