The first installment of a whirring saga that will have eleven episodes, Fast and Furious has taken the dynamic of Point Break and transposed it to the world of illegal car racing. A great vehicle for its star Vin Diesel, the film managed to amass 207 301 667 dollars at the worldwide box office the year of its release. A score since then largely exceeded by most of the sequels.
After dark, Dominic Toretto rules the streets of Los Angeles at the head of a team of followers who share his taste for risk, his passion for speed and his cult of sports cars launched at more than 250 km/h in urban rodeos of a rare violence. His days are spent tinkering with and restyling top-of-the-range models, making them ever more powerful and flashy, organizing illicit jousts where numerous candidates clash mercilessly under the enamored gaze of their groupies. Following several truck attacks, the L.A. police decide to investigate the street racers’ scene. Brian, a young policeman, is in charge of influencing Toretto’s gang, which appears, with that of his rival Johnny Tran, in the first rank of the suspects.

The Nissan Skyline from Fast and Furious
The Fast and Furious saga is emblematic and which car to choose among all those that heroes buy, sell, destroy, steal… The Nissan Skyline is one of the most obvious choices. Present from the short film The turbo-charged prelude linking the first and second parts, the Nissan Skyline is a legend in street racing, and probably one of the most beautiful cars driven by the late Paul Walker.
