The iconic car of fast and furious is Dominic Toretto’s 1970 Dodge Charger. It first showed up back in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, was an integral part of the story in 2009’s Fast & Furious and it’s back again for Fast Five. Along the way it has rolled after hitting a big green semi, been rebuilt and gone from glossy to flat black. Many of us love this 1970 Dodge Charger because we are thinking that this dodge charger 1970 is too fast but the goal of this car isn’t to go fast. The goal is for it to look like it’s going fast. And it’s also fun to drive.

This iconic black 1970 Dodge Charger is resurrected for Fast & Furious. The fourth movie’s story has the wrecked 1970 Dodge Charger being restored for Dom by his beloved Letty (that’s Michelle Rodriguez) while Dom is living as an exile in Central America. In reality, the Fast & Furious picture car department had to build six Chargers to perform all the stunts. One 1970 Dodge Charger RT was built with a real-live blown 528-cubic-inch Hemi V8 under its hood. But the three stunt cars were actually powered by small-block Chevy crate motors to keep things simple. And one Charger was nothing more than an engine-less “buck” built for use on stage where the actors could pretend to drive with the scenery added in later during post-production.
Fast and Furious and happened to fall in love with that beastly 1970 Dodge Charger RT Vin Diesel drove in the movie, then you’re in luck. The movie car has been put on sale by the Volo Auto Museum in Illinois.
