It’s been confirmed. While the plot and exotic locales of the latest Fast and Furious movie, Fast 8, have yet to be known, the production crew has released a few teasers and hints. The cast is going to Iceland.
The crew recently filmed scenes in the Nordic island nation and here are some of the special “ice cars” that fans can expect to see. Time to get excited.
Expectedly, Roman Pearce (played by Tyrese Gibson) has opted for a fast, exotic, and typically flashy supercar—a shapely orange Lamborghini Gallardo. No word yet on how V10 Italian supercars function in the snowy North…
Another obvious choice, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) finds himself behind the wheel of another specially built Dodge Charger—go figure—outfitted with a set of studded snow tires, gigantic fender flares, and showing some considerable battle damage.
His perennial love interest Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) keeps the muscle car trend going with the rough-and-tumble Local Motors Rally Fighter, complete with an LED light bar, bull bar, and enough ground clearance to tackle some small boulders.
Luke Hobbs (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and Tej Parker (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) both go for a more military-style approach with their ice rides—an “Ice Ram” pickup truck and a Ripsaw tank, both sporting US military liveries. With a turret mounted on top and all-terrain capability, the Ripsaw tank ought to be the hero of the scene, then again you never know what a Ram pickup with a giant claw on the back will do.
Excited yet? The Fast and Furious franchise returns to the silver screen on April 14, 2017.
