Fast Five

A 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sport Stingray was one of the cars that Mia, Brian, Dominic and Vince were going to steal from the train.

During the heist, Brian realizes that the cars are seized property under custody of the three DEA agents on the train. He and Dom fight Zizi and his men after Zizi reveals that he wanted to steal a Ford GT40 for his boss Hernan Reyes. Dom has Mia steal the car herself and he and Brian escape from the train using Corvette Sport Stingray. They drive it off a cliff and jump from it just as the car hits the water, the car sustaining significant water damage.

Production

The ’66 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport Stingray: Very few exist in mint condition, with the price of one eclipsing six figures. A real Stingray was used in the movie, with a built 502 big-block engine, four-speed trans, clean interior, and near-flawless everything else. It was designated a First Unit Production, or "hero" car, meaning only actors can sit in it and it never goes through stunts. "We built and wrecked 10 matching replicas for about $40K each, consisting of Mongoose kits over C4 ’Vette chassis and 400hp crate engines," Dennis explains—a comparatively small price to pay for having Dom Toretto jump one out of a train and eventually over a cliff on film. "Two were built with rear-mounted, air-cooled VW engines for even less," he explains. "Those were used for the jump scenes. We successfully jumped one over 50 feet, about eight feet off the ground."
