There’s nothing stronger than family and the muscle cars from the Fast and Furious movies. This iconic franchise has 11 films if you include the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off, and there’s no reason to think they’ll slow down anytime soon. Let’s think about all the vehicles we’ve seen across the films and what the best Fast and Furious cars are. Picking your favorite is brutal, so we’ve ranked the eight best for you.

8. The Gurkha LAPV

Let’s start the list with the Gurkha light-armor patrol vehicle (LAPV), even though it’s not a racing vehicle. Luke Hobbs (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) debuts this gigantic armored vehicle in “Fast Five” and brings along other agents from the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS). Hobbs starts out as an unfriendly character but joins the crew in their heists. His Gurkha LAPV is an iconic vehicle you can recognize from far away.

The Gurka LAPV is a mean machine that exists in real life, featuring a 7-L V8 turbo engine and 330 horsepower. It’s not the fastest vehicle in the world, but it gets the job done with a rugged exterior capable of withstanding gunfire. Plus, the Rock is driving it, and he’s one of the coolest dudes on Earth. Who are we to leave off the guy making nearly $300 million a year from movies alone?

7. 2000 Honda S2000 

If you inserted Margot Robbie’s Barbie into the Fast and Furious movies, there’s a good chance she’d drive Suki’s Honda S2000. This pink machine makes the list because of its speed and style, personifying Suki’s personality in a vehicle. It’s arguably the most recognizable vehicle of the bunch due to its bright colors and artwork on the door. 

You might remember Suki’s Honda S2000 from the scene where it jumped a drawbridge and had a rough landing. However, she still finished second in the race! That scene alone gives the Honda S2000 a spot on the list. 

6. 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Saying the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse isn’t one of the best Fast and Furious cars would be a mistake, considering it dates back to the first film in 2001. This car belongs to Brian O’Conner, who used it in his first street race. Part of this entry is to pay homage to Paul Walker, but the vehicle stands alone as a stud. 

First, the ‘95 Mitsubishi Eclipse looks like a stud with its green and black paint job and blue and white artwork on either side. The vehicle has a 4-cylinder engine and is a sporty machine, even if O’Conner initially struggles to handle it. The Eclipse might not last in the movie, but it remains in our hearts.

5. 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback

We’ll have to go back in time for No. 5 on this list, the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. In real life, the Fastback was part of the first generation of Mustangs. April 1964 saw the first Mustangs introduced, and it would only be four months later when Ford fans got the Fastback. 

In the Fast and Furious franchise, we’d see the Ford Mustang Fastback for the first time in “Tokyo Drift,” the third installment. In the film, Sean and his crew turn the 1967 Mustang Fastback into a drift car using a Skyline RB26 engine and other modifying parts. While some Mustang purists would stick their noses up at replacing the original engine, this machine sounds excellent on the street.

4. 2022 Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV

The electric vehicle (EV) craze has started to take over the auto industry, and for good reason. These cars have no tailpipe emissions, thus making street races more environmentally friendly — even if they’re not necessarily legal. The 2022 Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV was Dodge’s method of electrifying its fleet, and “Fast X” serves as a first glimpse of this vehicle. 

Again, muscle car purists might not enjoy EVs compared to their machines, so don’t expect to see the SRT EV on their list of best Fast and Furious cars. However, this car proves it has the speed and torque to keep up with anybody else on the street. Expect more EVs in the Fast and Furious movies with gas-powered sedans dying out.

3. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

Believe it or not, there was a time when the Dodge Charger ran on gasoline. Dodge’s pony car dates back to 1966, and the 1970 makes its first of many appearances in the OG Fast and Furious. It’s a beautiful and easily recognizable car and arguably the most popular from the entire franchise because it belongs to Dominic Toretto. 

The 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is hard to beat regarding looks and performance. In each movie, Toretto adds something new to make it better and better, whether modifying the V8 engine or something else on the body. Good luck racing against this rig in a street race.

2. 1997 Mazda RX-7 Veilside Fortune

“The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” gets another entry with the 1997 Mazda RX-7 Veilside Fortune. When you see the Veilside Fortune, you might think of a modded car coming from GTA 5 because that’s how good it looks. This vehicle is a speed demon featuring iconic looks with its orange and black paint scheme. While it looks different from most cars on this list, the uniqueness earns bonus points for creativity. 

The RX-7 Veilside Fortune is no match for police and other street racers, as its drifting capabilities readily stomp the competition. Han Lue is the fellow who drives this car, and we’re jealous he gets behind the wheel of this machine. Imagine Han teaching you how to drift in this gorgeous machine.

1. 1994 Toyota Supra JZA80

While the previous vehicles are unique, none compares to the 1994 Toyota Supra JZA80. The Supra is the best Fast and Furious car from the entire franchise because of the vehicle itself and the meaning behind it. O’Conner races this machine in multiple movies, making fans associate the Supra JZA80 with Paul Walker, even though a decade has passed since his passing. 

The car is a sight to behold, regardless of who drives it. O’Conner’s Supra gets an impressive 320 horsepower, twin-turbo 2JZ engines and an iconic paint scheme depicting a bulky arm pointing forward.

Ranking the Best Fast and Furious Cars of All Time

The Fast and the Furious franchise has been around since 2001, and who’s to say it won’t last another couple of decades? For over 20 years, we’ve seen some fantastic machines, ranging from Suki’s S2000 to Toretto’s Charger R/T. Which vehicles did we miss on this list?
