You know a movie’s about to be good when the very first scene is Vin Diesel getting broken out of a prison bus, and Fast Five definitely didn’t disappoint. In fact, a lot of people actually consider this the best F&F movie ever!
And as I’m sure you’re expecting by now, Fast Five had some seriously unbelievable rides. In this article, I’m going to take you through the cost of every one of these sick whips driven by Brian, Dom, Han, and all your favorite characters. This is the cost of every car from Fast Five!
Koenigsegg CCXR ($4 million)
In perhaps the greatest flex in the history of the Fast & Furious franchise (and we all know that they flex more than Hulk Hogan), Universal Studios bought not one, but two Koenigsegg CCXRs! In case you didn’t know, only four of these cars were ever made, as they said in the movie, and Fast & Furious literally had 50% of the CCXRs on the planet.
As you can imagine, a car that rare carries a pretty hefty price tag. MSRP on the CCXR is $2 million, but unlike most rare cars, the market value of this elusive supercar seems to be going down. Estimates are now around $1.5 million. That’s a whole Rolls-Royce Phantom in depreciation! Poor investment on the part of Universal Studios, but it did make for a pretty awesome scene toward the end of the movie.
2011 Lexus LFA ($400,000)
Sure, Lexus is known for making luxury high-performance vehicles, but we certainly don’t think of Lexus as a builder of futuristic supercars. That is, with exception of the LFA. Han is seen blazing down the Autobahn near the end of the film in his 2011 LFA, which is capable of spitting 553 horsepower out of a 4.8-liter V10, and can jump up over the 200 mile per hour mark.
The LFA is worth somewhere around $400,000, partly because it’s the only supercar Lexus ever produced, and maybe ever will. And they only made 500 of them! Representatives from Lexus have said that they may produce another supercar in the future, but there are certainly no immediate plans on the horizon. With all the buzz that the LFA has had around it, I’d say they probably won’t need to for quite some time.
Porsche 996 GT3 RS ($150,000)
Although it had a pretty minor role in Fast Five as the car Dom wins in a drag race and gets driven by Brian back to their garage, the Porsche 996 GT3 RS is definitely one of the cooler cars in the movie. Well, maybe I’m biased, I just love the 911… sue me! The 996 GT3 RS was an even more track focused version of the GT3, with a lighter body thanks to some carbon fiber on the hood and rear wing.
It’s motorsport counterpart won the GTO Class in the 2001 British GT Championship, and only 140 right-hand production models of the car were ever made. Plus, the 996 GT3 RS was never sold in the United States or Canada, making them especially rare on this side of the Atlantic. The original price of the 996 GT3 RS was $175,000, but they’d probably fetch more like $150,000 in today’s market.
2003 Acura NSX ($120,000)
The very beginning of the movie gives us a glimpse of one of the cooler cars in the lineup when a 2003 Acura NSX driven by Mia Torretto drives head-on toward a bus that’s carrying her brother to prison. The bus is forced to swerve and runs into Brian O’Conner in a Charger and gets totally wrecked, allowing Dom to escape.
The badass black NSX used in the movie is heavily modified with NSX-R suspension, brakes, wheels, body mods, and more. This black Japanese panther is a rear-wheel drive and puts out 295 horsepower through a 6-speed manual. A stock model 2003 NSX will cost you around $100,000 today, but with all that modding, they probably spent at least $120,000 on this car.
1972 De Tomaso Pantera GTS ($75,000)
A lot of people in the US have never even heard of the Italian carmaker De Tomaso. And laying eyes on the Pantera, you might even think it was an American muscle car. In fact, this car actually featured a Ford Cleveland V8 in the 1972 model, and was sold through Lincoln Mercury dealerships in the US.
The GTS was the more race-minded version of the original, however, for some reason, this car’s been reported to overheat on a 75-degree day. Apparently engine fires are especially common in the Pantera GTS too! I wouldn’t want to race in that death trap. A real 1972 Pantera GTS will cost around $75,000, and the producers did get a real one, but they also had to get several replicas for when the real one inevitably overheated during the filming of the train scene.
1963 Corvette Grand Sport ($10 million)
Alright, alright, before you start freaking out about the $10 million dollar figure on the screen, or about the Fast & Furious guys driving a $10 million car off a cliff into the Colorado River, I should mention that none of the 1963 Corvette Grand Sports used in the film are real.
They had five replicas made of this absolute classic, with some interesting modifications made to them. If you know anything about classic cars, you know that modifying one is about the worst thing you can do for its value. Make a few modifications on a real 1963 Corvette Grand Sport with an auction value of $10 million, and suddenly it’s only worth half that. Good thing the ones in the movie were fake.
1970 Dodge Chargers ($55,000)
Dom Torretto and a Dodge Charger go together like peanut butter and jelly. A big muscley dude, and a big muscley car. And I mean, come on, how badass is that gigantic blower on the hood of his 1970 Charger R/T? They used 6 total Charger R/Ts for the film, one which was actually hooked up with a blown 528-ci Hemi V8, and the other ones which had LS3 GM crates for simplicity’s sake. The production crew sought out the best R/T they could find, but even a pristine example of this car would only cost around $55,000, even with the blower. But as far as we know, the R/T with the Hemi engine was the only REAL model, while the rest were just replicas.
The film also features two 2010 Dodge Charger SRT-8s that Dom and Brian use to break into a police vault, finished in matte black paint and hooked up with some other cool mods like roll cages, XD Rockstar wheels, and chassis reinforcement. A normal 2010 Charger SRT-8 probably goes for around $30,000, But with all those mods, we’re guessing the Fast & Furious production team probably spent more like $50,000.
The police chase scene is simply riddled with Chargers, as the cops are driving 2006 Charger LXs, with the Police Package installed of course. These whips are probably worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $8,000.
We’re going to say that all in all, the Chargers in Fast Five probably cost around $175,000.
1966 Ford GT40 ($2 million)
In Fast Five, the role of the car containing the computer chip that let’s the crew in on Hernan Reyes’s little $100-million-dollar secret is played by a 1966 Ford GT40. It should make you happy to know that the car used in the film was not a real 1966 GT40, which could go for as much as $2 million at auction, but rather a replica built for the film. If they had really taken a $2 million car and drove it off a moving train, went off-roading with it, and stuck in an aftermarket DVD player… well, I’m just glad they didn’t.
The replica they used was reported to be a fairly expensive kit car, but how much exactly it cost, we’re not sure.
2010 Nissan GT-R R35 and 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 ($90,000)
In the very last scene before the credits, Brian challenges Dom to a rematch. Dom’s got his 2009 Challenger SRT-8 and Brian’s got his 2010 Nissan GT-R R35. While we never actually got to see the race, since the credits cut in before they start, I think we can all agree it would’ve been fun to watch.
Brian had the edge in terms of top speed, with his R35 going 23 miles per hour faster than Dom’s Challenger, but with some fancy driving, maybe Dom could’ve pulled it out. I guess we’ll never know. What we do know, however, is that both of these cars are worth right around $45,000 apiece.
1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 ($150,000)
After they initially break Dom out of the prison bus, Dom, Brian and Mia all head down to South America. While Dom drives his Charger, Brian rolls down south in something a bit more rare, a 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10.
This was the first ever Skyline to bear the GT-R badge, and because of its rich history, these cars can go for as much as $150,000 today.
Other Cars ($115,000)
Among the other cars in the film were a 1999 Toyota Supra MK IV JDM worth somewhere around $60,000, a 2009 Nissan 370Z worth only about $10,000, a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STi worth around $15,000, a Ford Galaxie 500 XL worth about $20,000, a Volkswagen Touareg at about $5,000, and a Mazda 626 GF worth about $4,000. All together, that’s about another $115,000 on Universal’s bill.
