Practice for Vault heist
The 2009 Nissan 370Z is a minor car featured in Fast Five.
The car is first seen in Fast Five, with a silver and black color scheme. The car is first seen on Dom and Brian's first outing on the Rio street racing scene. It first shown racing against a silver 2011 Subaru Impreza STI sedan.
The car is later won in a pink slip race and becomes a part of the collection that the team built when in Rio, preparing for the heist of the vault. The car is then seen at the hands of Gisele, where she impresses Han with her practice run of the compound in the warehouse.
"We originally wanted to get the Brian character in a Nissan GT-R and have Paul actually do some stunts since that’s what he races in real life," says Dennis, "but the 370Z’s RWD layout just made it more agile." Three cars were actually sourced for filming—one hero car, one RHD-converted filming car (achieved by mounting the stock steering rack upside down), and one for stunts—all survived the ordeal in great shape. Seibon and XXR Wheels helped out a lot with the Zs, contributing parts and offering discounts, but production had to pony up and actually buy the cars from dealerships. As with all other nitrous-equipped cars that appear on film, like the 370Zs’ front-mount intercoolers, it was added simply for looks.
