Infographic: Breaking Down Dom Toretto's Beloved 1970 Dodge Charger R/T


Of Dominic Toretto’s prized possessions, his jet black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T tops the list.

At the outset of the Fast and Furious series, we learn Toretto (Vin Diesel) modded the muscle car with his late father in what was a seminal bonding moment. Toretto only rolls out the customized ride on special occasions — usually in an epic final battle with a baddie.

Yahoo Movies consulted with the car experts behind the Fast and Furious franchise to break down Toretto’s vehicle of choice:
