SEVEN Vehicles We’ll See in Fast & Furious 9
Universal Pictures have dropped new posters and trailer of the ninth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise or F9: The Fast Saga (running out of names, guys?). The posters feature each character along with what could be their main machines. Here are seven of the metal stars that we can expect to see:
The lead character, Dominic Toretto, has been associated with muscle cars since the first movie in 2001. This time around, he will be using a Dodge Charger 500 to get away from someone from his past out to get him.
Letty Ortiz is street-smart and tough and not afraid to engage in physical fights. We see her perched on a Yamaha YZ450F that could possibly hint at more out-of-car confrontations.
Wrestler-turned-actor John Cena joins the Furious franchise as the new baddie, Jakob. He is an assassin, a thief…and Dom’s brother, who will be apparently teaming up with Cipher to come after Dom…in a Ford Mustang GT350, it looks like.
Mia Toretto is able to hold her own next to her brother Dom and husband Brian O’Conner. She was missing from The Fate of the Furious but returns to the ninth installment in a 1974 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, and possibly also with an update on whether her husband (played by the late Paul Walker) is still alive.
Across the franchise since the second movie, Roman Pearce has driven all sorts of cars from a BMW M5 to a Koenigsegg CCXR. But the new poster has him posing in front of a Jeep Rubicon—does this mean we should expect some off-roading adventure or chase scene?
Hacker Ramsey doesn’t drive and neither does actress Nathalie Emmanuel who plays her. Well, maybe things have changed since we last saw her and we will see her taking the wheel of this Noble M600.
Probably nothing can beat driving a Ripsaw Tank, but resident technical expert Tej Parker cannot complain when he gets the legendary Honda NSX.
We’ll have to wait till April to see if these are just pretty posters. Meanwhile, the trailer shows Dominic having settled on a farm with his son named Brian (a nod to Paul, of course)…but we can expect more than tractor racing to develop:
