Seems like just yesterday this movie franchise burst onto the scene and transformed the import and sport compact world. Watching the first film in the theater in 2001, who would have known it would have grown into what it is today.
As one might expect, there’s been many memorable Fast and Furious cars, good and bad. Some have been much better than others, but who cares about those right? Some of the more recognizable cars have been the hideous ones, yknow… those.
The Fast and Furious cars that 10 guys in suits somewhere in a meeting room decided was a good idea, which ended up being completely laughable. Because the movies became less about cars, or less about anything fast really, most of the cars on this list are from the early Fast and Furious movies.
In honor of the late Paul Walker, and the success of Furious 7 here’s some lighthearted fun with the Top 3 worst Fast and Furious Cars.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
I don’t know what’s more unbelievable, that Bow Wow actually can live in Japan and study there, or that someone actually looked at this van and thought it might have been a good idea. Aren’t there budgets and focus groups for this kind of thing? What is with the hands?
The Hulk theme is misplaced, at best and there’s no underlying motif that explains anything on this monstrosity. The only thing it’s good at is looking goofy, and it’s a big reason why the tuner part of the movie series began to die as the movies went along.
2 Fast 2 Furious
Sorry ladies but I am not feeling this piece of shit. I mean you have to be REALLY trying to fuck up a car for this to happen. I don’t think anyone could have ever ruined a Veilside kit, but the pink S2000 from the 2 Fast 2 Furious movie piloted by Suki is just the worst.
I like the hard top bonnet but outside of that, there’s very little this S2000 gets right. The stance has always looked funky to me, and the rim choice is horrible considering they took the time to bolt on fender flares and a Veilside body kit.
I guess they just ran out of money when it came to the rims?
2 Fast 2 Furious
Ah yes what could have been for Mitsubishi when this movie came out. With the Lancer Evolution and new Eclipse in the movie, it could have been a marketing coup for the Japanese car manufacturer.
Instead both cars ended up looking like Mitsubishi had lost their fucking minds. The Evolution looked bad and the Eclipse was even worse. Mitsubishi banked on the success of the third generation Eclipse and put more marketing into the Spyder model, which was an absolute failure.
In fact, failing miserably would be a generous way to describe their efforts to revive the Eclipse brand.
Continuing the downward spiral of the second generation Eclipse, the third gen fared no better but this convertible Barney mobile didn’t do Mitsubishi any favors. The front of the vehicle is higher than the rear, because reverse rake is sexy.
The chrome rims look waaay out of place, which is okay because out of place is the theme to this piece of crap. To think that this car could have kept up with any of the three others during the pivotal race around the oil drums is comical.
If I had this car as the only means of my escape from apocalypse, I’d rather run.
The Sparco alcantara seats were the only thing on this car that wasn’t a flaming dumpster fire, and Tyrese behind the wheel only made things worse.
What did you think was the worst car in the Fast and Furious movies? Comment below !
