Sung Kang Gives Us A Peak At The Cars Behind Fast & Furious 9
The COVID-19 pandemic has delayed Fast and Furious 9 to May 20, 2021. With the highly anticipated 9th installment of this franchise delayed, fans are going insane waiting. Sung Kang, who plays Han Lue in the franchise, has posted a video of some of the cars on set giving us a sneak peak. We finally get an up-close look at the cars behind the scenes. More importantly, a close look at the Toyota GR Supra that Kang will drive in the movie.
The first car we see in the video is a Dodge Charger, which will likely be driven by Dom Torreto (Vin Diesel) in the film. We expect this Camaro to get the standard treatment that all of Dom’s cars get, which is massive amounts of horsepower and several tanks of NOS on standby. This modified Camaro’s front grill is all that’s in view, but judging by this car’s look, it is much like his past wheelie-inducing street beasts.
Sitting next to the Camaro is a Jaguar XE SV Project 8, which is arguably “the most extreme” performance cat they have ever made, according to the marque. The 5.0 liter supercharged V8 produces almost 600 horsepower. Sadly only 300 of these vehicles were ever made. All of which were assembled at the Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operation Technical Centre in Warwickshire, England. This car still holds the record for the fastest saloon car to lap the Nurburgring.
Next to that is Dom’s brother’s car, which is a modified Ford Mustang. Dom’s brother Jakob is played by WWE Legend and actor John Cena. This is Cena’s first appearance in the franchise and the first time we have heard that Dom has a brother. This Shelby looking Mustang is sure to pack a lot of muscle just like its driver. Just beside the Mustang is a couple of Pontiac Fieros with rockets strapped to the back of them, which is seen in the trailer below. Beside them is an epic-looking Honda NSX that is expected to be driven by Mia Walker (Jordana Brewster), who has always driven a Honda. More recently, she drove an older style NSX.
Also in the shot are more Project 8‘s, which are likely to be backup cars as they have some apparent damage to them. Next to those is a matte black M5 and the epic looking Toyota GT Supra. This car will be driven by Sung Kang’s character Han in the next film. This particular car has no windows, so it is either a stunt car or will just be used for interior shots. This car, with its iconic orange and black paint job, further excites us of Han’s return.
