A team is nothing but pieces switched out until you get the job done, its efficient and works. but you? You are loyal to a fault, your code is about family, that's great in the holidays but it makes you predictable. In our line of work predictable makes you vulnerable, it means I can reach out and break you any time I want.
— Owen Shaw to Dominic Toretto

Owen Shaw was a dishonorably discharged spec ops mercenary and convicted criminal freed from prison ending up the mastermind of the crime syndicate intending to bomb the entire capital of the United Kingdom which makes him the main antagonist of the 6th film who will be challenged by Brian and Dominic's crew. He was portrayed by Welsh actor Luke Evans.

Furious 6

So far he has been shown, driving a Specially-Built Open-Wheeled 3-Seat Sports Car which has a reinforced front end with a flip-up extension that can form a ramp.

After the race with Dominic Toretto and Letty Ortiz had finished, and Letty had left, Owen can be seen driving an Aston Martin DB9. The conversation involves Owen telling Dominic that his code makes him vulnerable, saying "I can reach out and break you whenever I want". Owen then proceeds to have Dominic killed by a sniper after he refuses to drop efforts on bringing Owen to justice, however Owen is forced to back down as the "two-bit government hack", Luke Hobbs then has him targeted with a sniper-rifle.

Owen's next operation involved getting hold of a powerful Computer Processing Unit, which meant having to steal a tank from a military base in Spain. After havin a headstart on Hobbs and Dominic's team, Owen's team managed to get control of the tank, by ambushing the military convoy. Once he, Letty and Jah are inside the tank they then have to face off against Dominic's team, made up of Brian O'Conner with a MK I Ford Escort, Dominic, with a Charger Daytona, Roman Pearce, with a 1970 Ford Mustang and Gisele Harabo and Han Lue with sportbikes. Dominic's team decides to improvise and because Owen's team were clueless as to their oppnonents tactics, they began to have less control of the situation. Roman positions his car milimetres in front of the tank and uses high-tensile cable to tie the car to the tank. Roman then jumps from the Mustang as it gets crushed, into Brian's Escort. The Mustang then begins to act as an anchor to the tank as it is dragged along behind it. Brian realises this and then attempts to push the crumpled mustang into the gap between the two sides of the road, so that it acts as a true anchor. Owen instructs Letty to get the cable removed, but the Mustang falls to its lowest point before she can do so. Before the car does, Letty jumps into the arms of a Dominic Toretto that had leapt from the roof of his Charger. The tank is then rendered stuck by the anchor and Letty is saved as Dominic lands on the front of a car on the other side of the road, without being injured.

Following the tank Operation, Shaw is apprehended along with the members of the team that were with him. However his team had kidnapped Mia Toretto and in order to have a better chance of rescuing Mia, the team have to let go of Owen, his team and the billion-pound CPU. At this point Riley reveals herself to be working with Owen Shaw and leaves with Shaw's team.

During the aeroplane collection which was supposed to be a simple sequence of his team driving their vehicles into the plane's cargo area and then the plane taking off, Owen, along with Klaus, is involved in a fight with Brian, Dominic and Hobbs. At the climax of this fight, Dominic beats the crap out of Shaw using the interior of the Mercedes G463 that they were in, and recovers the CPU. Dominic jumps out of the SUV which flys out of the cargo area, killing Shaw.
