Dominic "Dom" Toretto and Brian O'Conner with the rest of their team, returned to the United States to live normal lives after securing amnesty for their past crimes in the previous Fast & Furious 6 until Deckard Shaw (Statham), a rogue special forces assassin seeking to avenge his comatose younger brother, puts the team in danger once again.Shaw is taken into custody by Hobbs and locked away in a secret, high-security prison. At a beach, Brian and Mia play with their son while Dom, Letty, Roman, Tej, and Ramsey observe, acknowledging that Brian is better off retired with his family.
Mr. Nobody.says that he will assist Dom in stopping Shaw if he helps him obtain God's Eye, a computer program that uses digital devices to track down a person, and save its creator, a hacker named Ramsey, from a mercenary named Mose Jakande. Dom, Brian, Letty, Roman Pearce, and Tej Parker then airdrop their cars over the Caucasus Mountains in Azerbaijan, ambush Jakande's convoy, and rescue Ramsey. The team then heads to Abu Dhabi, where a billionaire has acquired the flash drive containing God's Eye, and manages to steal it from the owner. With God's Eye near telecommunications repeaters, the team tracks down Shaw, who is waiting at a remote factory. Dom, Brian, Nobody and his team attempt to capture Shaw, but are ambushed by Jakande and his men and forced to flee while Jakande obtains God's Eye. At his own request, the injured Nobody is left behind to be evacuated by helicopter while Brian and Dom continue without him. To reduce their disadvantage, the crew returns to Los Angeles to fight Shaw, Jakande and his men. Meanwhile, Brian promises Mia that once they deal with Shaw, he will retire and fully dedicate himself to their family.
Dom silently leaves, Ramsey asks if he's gonna say goodbye. Dom says, "It's never goodbye." He drives away, but Brian catches up with him at a crossroad. As Dom remembers the times that he had with Brian, they bid each other farewell and drive off in separate directions, as the screen fades to "For Paul" written on a white title screen.

Did you notice?
- During the opening scene, as Shaw leaves the hospital and gets into his car, the registration plate is missing from the front of the car making it illegal to driven in the UK.
- Although only one car is mentioned as bulletproof, all cars somehow manage to repel all bullets including high-caliber mini gun fire.
- In the government garage, Brian's car is shown to be a Subaru WRX STi sedan. However, when they go to jump out of the plane, it has become a similar looking hatchback version.
- After Dom and Deckard's crash on the parking garage, Dom's car is clearly damaged. However, after Deckard falls into the hole caused by the missile fired at the parking garage, Dom drives away in his car, which is unscathed and shows no signs of collision.
- Although numerous late-model vehicles are shown colliding with other cars and random road objects, none of the vehicles' multiple front or side airbags ever deploy.Also during Dom and Deckard's first face-off in L.A., where the two end up crashing their cars into each other's directly head-on, none of the multiple front airbags in the Maserati Ghibli Deckard was driving deployed.
- When Dom chases Deckard from the funeral, the window tint on Deckard's Maserati keeps disappearing and then reappearing also Jason Statham's Maserati is fully tinted during the cemetery scene but all the window tint disappears before the head on crash scene with Vin Diesel.
- In the very last scene you see Brian pull up to Dom in his Toyota Supra, the sound doesn't match the actual car but the Mitsubishi Eclipse from the first movie.

The film marks the final film appearance of Walker, who died in a single-vehicle crash on November 30, 2013 with filming only half-completed. Following Walker's death, filming was delayed for script rewrites, and his brothers, Caleb and Cody, were used as stand-ins to complete his remaining scenes. These script rewrites completed the story arcs for both Walker and Brewster's characters.
Furious 7 marked the final film performance of Paul Walker, who died in a car accident on November 30, 2013. The film was dedicated to his memory.
On November 30, 2013, while on a break for the Thanksgiving holiday, Walker, who portrayed Brian O'Conner, died in a single-vehicle accident. The next day, Universal announced that production would continue after a delay that would allow the filmmakers to rework the film. On December 4, 2013, Universal put production on hold indefinitely. Wan later confirmed that the film had not been cancelled. On December 22, 2013, Diesel announced that the film would be released on April 10, 2015.
In January 2014, Time reported that Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, would be retired instead of killed, and that new scenes would be developed in order to allow the franchise to continue without him. To recreate Walker's likeness, the filmmakers hired Peter Jackson's Weta Digital visual effects house Initially, what Weta could do was severely constrained by the quality of the reference materials available for Walker's physical appearance.In April 2014, it was reported that Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody had been hired as stand-ins. Their cooperation, along with their strong resemblance to their late brother, enabled the filmmakers to use Walker's likeness throughout the finished film. That is, Weta Digital no longer needed to recreate Walker's entire body from scratch, and could focus on accurately modeling his face.The final film showed Walker's face superimposed over the bodies of his brothers or actor John Brotherton in 350 visual effects shots.260 used a computer-generated face, while 90 repurposed actual footage of Walker's face borrowed from outtakes or older footage.
