Fast and Furious 7 Uses Worlds Fastest Production Car and More

From the world's fastest street-legal production car, to the diamond-encrusted UAE's only super car, the Lykan HyperSport and of course don't forget the Bugatti Veyron; Fast and Furious 7 used 340 cars in total. 270 of them were harmed during the making of the film. These cars were raced off ramps, parachuted from planes and driven head first into each other. The multi-million dollar action packed franchise puts a real emphasis on real stunts. Only 10% of the action scenes in Furious 7 were computer generated. This explains why 270 of the 340 cars used in the Fast and Furious 7 were completely trashed during production. Dennis McCarthy, the man who modifies the cars for Furious 7, gives each one of the cars the same basic structure: a 500-horsepower fuel injected engine with a three-speed manual transmission. This minimizes the range of spare parts that have to be used, and allows the stunt team to minutely choreograph each scene without having to know the individual peculiarities of each vehicle.

Furious 7 will be available for purchase September 15th!

There are currently only seven models available in the world. The Lykan Hypersport is so lavish and outrageous that even the headlights are illuminated with white gold, diamonds and sapphires and cost alone more then the average American mid-sized sedan. The Lykan HyperSport accelerates from zero to 60mph in less than three seconds and is capable of over 240mph. In Furious 7 you'll see the HyperSport being jumped from one Abu Dhabi skyscraper to another. Dennis McCarthy made six exact replaces of the car using molds lent by W Motors, fabricating them from fiberglass rather than carbon fiber, and using a Porsche Boxster for the chassis.
