The Flip Car (also known as the Ramp Car) is a major car driven by Owen Shaw and Vegh in Fast & Furious 6.

History

Fast & Furious 6

Two of these custom sports cars were designed and manufactured by Firuz, an auto mechanic that supplied Owen Shaw's crew with weapons and vehicles. They had a ramp that could be deployed by pushing a button. The crew used the two Flip Cars to perform heists on military convoys. During the pursuit in London, Owen Shaw and Vegh drove the cars and used the ramps, attempting to take out Dominic Toretto and his crew. During the plane chase, one of the Flip Cars was used by Vegh in one final attempt to eliminate Brian O'Conner and Mia Toretto. However, Brian and Mia were driving in reverse, so they did not get flipped over. Vegh did not see the barrier on the runway, resulting in the Car flipping over and causing a deadly crash. The Flip Car was totaled as a result of the crash. The second Flip Car was most probably in the plane, and thus was destroyed with it.

Specifications

The actual Flip Car used a 480 horsepower LS3 motor. It was fabricated by builder Dennis McCarthy, and features a custom tube frame and cow catcher, four-wheel steering, and a V-drive transmission system, derived from a speedboat, while the suspension uses parts from a Chevrolet Suburban.

Despite its minimal appearance, the car weighs 3,900 pounds.

It is loosely based on a Formula One Race Car.

Behind the Scenes

  • During the first car chase on London, a couple shots clearly show the engines in the flip cars to be GM LS engines. When Dom's crew debriefs afterwards, Brian refers to them as "turbo diesel" (which is incorrect).
