Pretty NO, Bad ass for sure, and I dont know of many others that can compete on this level for Hollywood and its one of the most powerful movie car's ever made.

I'm partial to the Monte Carlo in Tokyo Drift since its a NASCAR inspired movie car with legit parts. That and I have a 72 Monte Carlo 350/350. I posted more movie car info below or click on it's own movie car homepage http://www.tokyodriftmontecarlo.com/1.html



700hp 572 Bil Mitchell BBC










Most of Tokyo Drift's action takes place in, naturally, Tokyo, but the story is framed as the consequences of the hero's stateside street racing. The primered, NASCAR-inspired Monte Carlo is what gets him in trouble. Two of the nine first-generation Monte Carlos built for The Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift had big-blocks — this one with the 560-horsepower 509 aboard and the other with a 700-hp, 572-cubic-inch Bill Mitchell "Hardcore" crate engine (the other seven either had small-block V8s or were used as engine-less bucks). In both Chevrolet cars, the engines feed Hooker headers and Flowmaster mufflers and, for story purposes, are disguised with "Hardcore 632" valve covers. Both run Richmond T-10 four-speed manual transmissions, Wenco driveshafts and Moser-built 12-bolt rear-ends running 4.88:1 gears in a spool differential. Both also ride on a chassis wearing Global West front control arms and coil springs, KYB shocks, Speedway Engineering anti-sway bars, Global West weight jack plates and quick-ratio steering boxes.

Wilwood disc brakes sit behind each of the Cragar 397 steel 15-inch wheels. The tires are Goodyear stock-car specials, 27 inches tall and 8 inches wide in front and 27-by-10 inches in the back. The stark interiors consist of sheet metal fabricated in the Tokyo Drift shop, custom-built roll cages, Grant steering wheels and massive Hurst V-Gate shifters. Auto Meter gauges bolted to sheet metal replace the stock gauges and the seats are Beard low-back buckets.


Everything about the Tokyo Drift Monte Carlo demands muscle to operate and steely courage to remain composed. The 509 Monte ripped to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds and devastated the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 118.3 mph. That's despite tires built for circle-track racing rather than straight-line acceleration, and a distinct lack of traction that had the car squirming all the way down the course. That's quick by any measure, and it's hard to imagine any car accelerating with more drama.

Not many movie cars are true bad asses. The Tokyo Drift Monte Carlo is.

Back to the future DeLorean. But if I have to pick a non-time traveling car it would be Gone in 60 Seconds Eleanor. A 1969 Shelby GT 500

Never seen Dazed and Confused though.
I've seen the the movie, but must have been too dazed and confused when I watched it, because I don't even remember this car. Now I'm going to have to watch it again. Love that car!

The Yenko and 'Cuda from 2F2F, as well as the Monte from FFTD. That Monte is badass.

The truck from Fall Guy is awesome, and inspired me to build my first truck.

Oh, the Charger from the original FF! That wheel stand at the end, lol.

Man, a person could go on for a while thinking about this. I'll stop there, lol.

700hp 572 Bil Mitchell BBC










Most of Tokyo Drift's action takes place in, naturally, Tokyo, but the story is framed as the consequences of the hero's stateside street racing. The primered, NASCAR-inspired Monte Carlo is what gets him in trouble. Two of the nine first-generation Monte Carlos built for The Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift had big-blocks — this one with the 560-horsepower 509 aboard and the other with a 700-hp, 572-cubic-inch Bill Mitchell "Hardcore" crate engine (the other seven either had small-block V8s or were used as engine-less bucks). In both Chevrolet cars, the engines feed Hooker headers and Flowmaster mufflers and, for story purposes, are disguised with "Hardcore 632" valve covers. Both run Richmond T-10 four-speed manual transmissions, Wenco driveshafts and Moser-built 12-bolt rear-ends running 4.88:1 gears in a spool differential. Both also ride on a chassis wearing Global West front control arms and coil springs, KYB shocks, Speedway Engineering anti-sway bars, Global West weight jack plates and quick-ratio steering boxes.

Wilwood disc brakes sit behind each of the Cragar 397 steel 15-inch wheels. The tires are Goodyear stock-car specials, 27 inches tall and 8 inches wide in front and 27-by-10 inches in the back. The stark interiors consist of sheet metal fabricated in the Tokyo Drift shop, custom-built roll cages, Grant steering wheels and massive Hurst V-Gate shifters. Auto Meter gauges bolted to sheet metal replace the stock gauges and the seats are Beard low-back buckets.


Everything about the Tokyo Drift Monte Carlo demands muscle to operate and steely courage to remain composed. The 509 Monte ripped to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds and devastated the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 118.3 mph. That's despite tires built for circle-track racing rather than straight-line acceleration, and a distinct lack of traction that had the car squirming all the way down the course. That's quick by any measure, and it's hard to imagine any car accelerating with more drama.

Not many movie cars are true bad asses. The Tokyo Drift Monte Carlo is.
Honestly I didnt like the f+f movies, it intoduced n2o to a bunch of punk little kids with hundas and gave a fals eimpression of how it is used that i had to deal with
