The Fast and the Furious Film Cars (2001)
Dominic Toretto 1970 Dodge Charger and Brian O'Connors 1995 Toyota Supra Mk.IV
Los Angeles street racer Dominic Toretto falls under the suspicion of the LAPD as a string of high-speed electronics truck robberies rocks the area. Brian O'Connor, an officer of the LAPD, joins the ranks of Toretto's highly skilled racing crew undercover to convict Toretto.
However, O'Connor finds himself both enamored with this new world and in love with Toretto's sister, Mia. As a rival racing crew gains strength, O'Connor must decide where his loyalty really lies.
Brian O'Connors 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2G
Working titles for the movie included "Racer X", "Redline" and "Race Wars". Before "The Fast and the Furious".
During the Race Wars, real-life drivers brought their cars to participate in the huge scene.
This is the first and only movie in the franchise where Dom drives an import, in the other movies he drives American muscle cars.
Over 1,500 cars were at the Race Wars.
Dominic Toretto's black muscle car is a 1970 Dodge Charger with a 528ci supercharged Hemi and 727 automatic transmission. This Charger is the same body style (although one year newer) as the famous 1969 Dodge Charger "General Lee" of the The Dukes of Hazzard (1979) television series. After the filming of the crash at the end of the film, the same 1970 Charger wound up in the opening scenes of Herbie Fully Loaded (2005) as a car in the junkyard.

There are over 15,000 individual sound effects in the first street race.
The green 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T that Paul Walker is driving at the start, is the same one used in the movie Sex Drive. There were a few differences made to it, such as the roof scoop.
The first street race scene is supposedly a quarter mile race, taking approximately ten seconds. However, the race takes almost two minutes of screen time and shows the vehicles driving in excess of 150 miles per hour, faster than even a 1,200 horsepower Bugatti Veyron can accomplish a 1/4 mile.
The Volkswagen Jetta that Jesse drives in the movie, was later purchased by Frankie Muniz.
