It’s been nearly 18 years since the 1st The Fast and the Furious was released and today is one of the highest grossing film series of all time. While some of the actors have left an indelible mark on automotive pop culture, it’s the cars that turned out to be the real stars.
Dennis McCarthy is the man behind all of the cars from the Fast and the Furious franchise. As we approach 2019, it is true that some of them and their mods have become mostly tacky. Their influence on the car tuning scene however is impossible to deny.
Wired published a video well over a year ago that features Mr. McCarthy explaining the various reasons for and modifications done to many of the most famous cars in the franchise. What really stands after watching the video is how big Mitsubishi was… And we do mean was. We’d never seen it so we thought we’d pass it along.
