A snapshot of 2023 Bangkok International Motor Show

Small and lightweight machines continue to be the frontrunners in the Asian motorcycle market. The reasons are self-evident: narrow, crowded streets, high import duties on large bikes and the cost of fuel. Large bikes (typically over 500cc) are still very much aspirational and are seldom seen on the streets as daily rides. 

All the Cars Featured in Fast X and Where to Buy Them

2003 Lamborghini Gallardo | The Fast and the Furious Wiki | Fandom
Fast X – the 10th instalment in the Fast & Furious franchise – hit Aussie cinemas this May, completely action-packed, featuring beloved actors such as John Cena and Jason Momoa, and most importantly… filled to the brim with iconic cars! From muscle cars to electric vehicles and sports cars, Fast X is teeming with incredible wheels that audiences have come to expect and love from this multi-million-dollar franchise. If you’ve been eyeing off any of the cars featured on Fast X, here’s exactly what they were, and where you can buy them. Collecting Cars, the world’s largest online auction platform for rare, iconic and sporting vehicles, have got you covered, with breakdowns on each of the cars and how much you might need to splash if you want to nab one of the iconic cars featured in Fast X.

The dream of most millennials, the 2003 Lamborghini Gallardo features in a supercar chase sequence in Fast X throughout the streets of Italy – and for very good reason. The Gallardo is a thrilling Italian supercar with a mighty 5.2-litre V10 engine, able to sprint from 0-100km/h in just 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 324km/h. Nothing says ‘car-chase’ faster than this classic Lamborghini. If the Fast X movie has triggered any of your millennial dreams, you can pick up a Lamborghini’s from the Collecting Cars platform like this 2017 LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR LP740-4 S you might just need to be ready to splash over $700K

Driven by John Cena’s character in the film, the Chevrolet El Camino goes on an intense car chase throughout the canyons, custom-fitted with its own missile launches. So, sadly while everyday collectors have to forego the rocket-launches, the El Camino still boasts a 5.4-litre V8 Engine, with three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission. One of these classic American Utility Vehicles will set any intrigued buyers back by approximately $25-30k + custom rocket launchers.
Fast X Trailer - New Fast & Furious Movie Drops First TrailerPORSCHE 911 GT3 RS (997)
Gear heads adore the Porsche 911 GT3 RS as it is the closest thing to a road-race car that you can get, hence why it is featured in Fast X! A very similar green model that was featured in the movie sold on Collecting Cars earlier this year for a whopping $330k! Designed with the track in mind, it has an impressive power-to-weight ration of 300bhp per tonne! Sadly, whilst it does go up in flames, it makes for one fantastic chase sequence. If you’re looking to add a similar car to your portfolio, Porsche 911’s are classic for a reason – you can pick up one via the Collecting Cars platforming including this 2017 Porsche 911 (991.2) GT3 Clubsport in red, or the 1991 Porsche 911 (964) Turbo 3.3.

Some other notable car highlights from the film include the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T muscle car, which has become synonymous with the protagonist, Dominic Toretto, as well as the other classic muscle car, the 1966 Ford Fairlane. Jason Momoa’s character favours a lavender Chevrolet Impala, whilst the franchise also highlights the Japanese auto industry with cars like the Datsun 240Z, which is by far one of the most legendary Japanese sports cars of all time.

Whether you’re a Fast & The Furious Fan or not, audiences agree that the franchise does feature some iconic and remarkable rides.
