The allure of The Fast and the Furious world is simple: the cars are the stars. In all three of the movies, sexy up-and- coming actors are paired with radical sport compacts and pavement-twisting, old-school muscle cars. Add in locations rife with street racing action, from the boulevards of Miami to the twisty canyon roads near Tokyo, and you have a formula for high-revving action movies guaranteed to start your engine.
The Fast and the Furious: The Official Car Guide packs the four-wheel sex appeal of all three films in one package. This book features nearly 200 photos of the movies' premier cars and offers insight on their specifications—from the highly modified Supra in The Fast and the Furious to the tire-smoking 350Z in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
Interviews with the tuner gurus who built the cars, including Craig Lieberman, David Marder, Eddie Paul, and Dennis McCarthy, reveal even more details on how these cars stole the spotlight in scene after scene. Also included is an introduction to the sport of drifting—the Japanese sport compact racing sensation now sweeping America.
