Top 5 Cars From Fast And Furious 7
A new video by DIY modification channel Mighty Car Mods profiles the man responsible, Fast 7 car coordinator Dennis McCarthy. In the segment, we’re taken inside the master’s studio to get a close look at the vehicles from the action flick, including an Aston Martin DB9, a vintage Plymouth Barracuda, and the iconic R34 Skyline from 2 Fast 2 Furious.
One interesting note is that McCarthy uses a standardized, 500-horsepower drivetrain on most of the film’s domestics. The LS3 crate motor produces plenty of power, he says, but it also makes repair, part swapping, and on-set customization a snap.
McCarthy says he and his team can take rusted body shell to a Hollywood-quality stunt vehicle in less than two weeks. The rest of the video features interviews with fans, the director, and some of the cast, but true gearheads will probably skip straight to McCarthy’s segment, which starts at 11:35.
