The cars of The Fast and the Furious 4
The Fast and the Furious 4 has been confirmed with a 2009 release date and Justin Lin as Director, anything else you may have heard is rumour and speculation, but the film is definitely going into pre-production and will hopefully be filmed pre strike.
So with it definitely going ahead I wondered what cars you'd like to see in The Fast and the Furious 4.
Although I love cars, I'm not into modding them and tricking them out, I love just the elegance of looks, the feel of the drive, and a bit of power. So that pretty much defines what I would like to see.
Saying that I really appreciate the work and style of modded cars, but for me personally the list of cars I'd like to see is limited to:
Honda S2000 GT
It's my car and I adore driving it, and with it appearing in two of the other films - I don't think it was in the third - I'd love to see it back. Oh and I'd prefer if it wasn't pink again! The black one was much cooler.
I love the throaty growl of the muscle cars and the big, more phallic look to the cars. There's little in the way of smooth and gentle aerodynamics and it's all hard lines and big beefyness.
There's a rawness and almost uncontrollable power to them I love too, like an untamed huge beast. Yeah, more muscle cars I say. Dodge Charger, Corvette, Shelby GT, Ford Mustang, to name but a few
I say maybe because there's no real fit in the Fast and the Furious world for the top end supercars like the Ferrari Enzo, yet there are more attainable versions for the richer racers.
A few appearances from some older Lambourghini's and Ferrari's, lower end Aston Martin's, a Honda NSX or two, these would be great to see as I love the sleek looks and the incredible power and noise from them.
However I do know that these wouldn't really fit into the Fast and the Furious world since they are more the playboy's racing toy.
So really, for me it's more muscle cars and an appearance from my favourite, the S2k.
What about you? Would you prefer muscle or import? Rawer or heavily modded? Do you see a place in the Fast and the Furious for supercars?
I know from the other Fast and the Furious topics on the site that you lot are much more knowledgeable on cars and imports than I am, so you'll no doubt have specific favourites. So tell us what they are.
