Here at Jalopnik, we get a lot of press releases, marketing pitches, spam and emails. Most of them I half-heartedly archive, but one caught my eye today: a pitch with the subject line “David Leitch to direct Fast & Furious spin-off starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham.” And I got very excited because I initially and…
Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? Well, when it comes to Fast and Furious movies and the people who love them, the line between movie and reality seems to get a bit blurred. And you know what? I totally get it.
Stunt driving is an extremely intense, high pressure and dangerous profession, but it’s extremely rewarding for both the audiences that get to enjoy the crazy action on screen and the people that get to do the driving.
Some people measure the life on their cars by the number of miles on the odometer, but the “Brotherhood Of Muscle” has a different way of doing things, especially if we are talking about a Dodge Demon.
Radwood 2 looked like a good neon time full of the old cars we actually care about. If you were stuck at home, you can relive the good old times vicariously through Jalopnik’s Instagram here, or Radwood’s main account here. We hope you all enjoyed it and weren’t hassled too much for rad props by The Man.
Meadow Walker, the daughter of Fast & Furious franchise star Paul Walker, has settled the lawsuit against Porsche concerning her father’s death in 2013, according to The Blast.
Sometimes movie trailers really do provide enough information to warrant skipping the actual movie, and beyond the heart-wrenching Paul Walker send off at the end of it, I’d say Furious 7 is one of those movies. Luckily, that means replacing the trailer footage with The Little Rascals makes it easier to imagine those…
We’re thankful for direct-port nitrous injection, four-core intercoolers, ball-bearing turbos and titanium valve springs. And of course, family. Here’s hoping you can enjoy yours this week.
If it’s been unbearably hot outside for you this summer, Netflix has got you: August offerings are out and it looks like more than just a few of us are going to settle in for some binge-watching in an air-conditioned room. One of their latest offerings is APEX: The Story of the Hypercar, and now you have no excuse not…
The 15th anniversary of the original Fast & Furious movie reveals how far the series has morphed from street racing to crazy international heists, but the first film had its roots planted firmly in the very real and very illegal culture of underground racing. Specifically, the racing culture that dominated the Uptown…
There is no car-filled franchise more widely known, widely loved and even widely reviled than the Fast and the Furious movies. Everyone has seen at least a couple of them. And today, the first film of the franchise celebrates its 15th anniversary. (You can catch it one more time on the big screen tonight.) Fifteen…
Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and the rest of Universal’s Fast 8 crew is currently relocating to Iceland to blow up the peaceful island using multiple Ripsaw ATVs and armored trucks. Here are more of their stunt cars.
I might have been wrong about the plot of Vin Diesel’s Fast 8. As it turns out, the most furious film crew of them all is planning to blow up Iceland instead of just cruising around Manhattan, using custom built ATVs, military vehicles and heavily armored Dodge trucks. Our reader caught them at the port.
That beautiful and delightfully obscene Volkswagen Jetta from the original The Fast and the Furious, the one driven by “Jesse,” the guy who promised “overnight parts from Japan,”the one signed by Paul Walker (RIP), which is currently owned by Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz, is now up for auction. Get your…
None of the movies in the Fast and Furious franchise make any concessions to reality, and that’s what makes them so great. These are their ten most absurdly unrealistic scenes.
The Fast and the Furious conglomerate of movies is known for their egregious use of CGI and quite frankly some poor decision making, but according to a recent behind the scenes look from the latest Furious 7 sequel, this reputation might need reconsideration.
There's a new trailer for the new Fast and the Furious movie and it's just jumps. Seriously, just jumps. It's amazing.
Nutty tuner cars bending the laws of physics. Slow-motion leaps across vehicles. The comic relief of Tyrese Gibson's clichés... if you like anything about the Fast & Furious series, it looks like Furious 7 is going to blow your happiness gasket. Also, cars go skydiving.
We all remember the first time we saw The Fast and the Furious on the big screen, and most of us peeled out of the parking lot in our 127hp Honda Civic EX. If you long for those days when you made the VTEC kick in, now is your chance to own an original movie car with this 1996 Integra GS-R.
Tyrese, who is famous for many things that you totally know off the top of your head, owns a Sprinter van with Rolls Royce badges on it. And now it's for sale. On Instagram. A well known car sales site.
