“I got a chance to drive a Supra and a Mustang. My car’s flying in the air. Their pony car designs, long nose short tail end, they’re designed to handle well. But man, we saw so many more cars. I would have to take Noble that Helen Mirren took for a spin, especially when she took it, that was a really exciting part of the movie.

“There was a lot of precious metals scattered throughout a big mansion party that we filmed. I was totally geeked out that day. On the fact that there were so many tremendous cars that Fast has evolved over the years and I like the fact that they still keep their attachment to the automobile, to vehicles.”

John Cena revealed his favorite car from the Fast and Furious franchise

Over the years, the franchise has included many cars from different makers in the movies. There are jeeps, trucks, SUVs, premium cars, and, of course, modified sports cars. It’s difficult to select only one favorite from the entire collection, but Cena has his pick figured out.

“I think the most iconic one for sure is Dom’s charger. My favourite is the green Mitsubishi Eclipse from the very first Fast and Furious because without that car Brian doesn’t take Dom to the limit and without that they don’t bond and without that we don’t have any Fast and Furious.”
