The movie "Fast and  Furious" is arguably one of the best selling movies of all time. Since its first release, many have been craving for the next installment because of its action-packed scenes, visual special effects, and of course, the cars used by the main characters. The "Fast and Furious 8" is at it again, showcasing tough cars, as tough as the lead cast.

Moviegoers are constantly waiting in so much anticipation to see what the cars are used and driven by the main characters. This movie sends car enthusiasts to an unexplained orgasm seeing various cars in action, over-speeding while being chased by cops, or simply running away from villains. Case in point, cars used deliver angst, fierceness, and overflowing bravado which is every car enthusiast's dream movie.

So what are the cars used for this year's installment, "Fast and Furious 8?" According to Movie Web, Dom played by Vin Diesel will be driving a Dodge Charger. Letty played by Michelle Rodriguez's ride will be a Rally Fighter. Tej played by Ludacris will drive a tank-like vehicle called Ripsaw, Roman played by Tyrese Gibson in an orange Lamborghini and Hobbs played by Dwayne Johnson in an Ice Ram.


A new addition to the movie, the Oscar award-winning actress Charlize Theron will be driving what is known as a Zombie car. The Zombie car is fitting for her character reported to mess up with all the characters and test their loyalty with each other.

Dom's ride, the Dodge Charger is bad for having 3.6-liter V-6 and an excellent eight-speed automatic transmission according to Car and Driver. Letty's ride fits her strong persona. She may be a woman, but not the type to mess around with. Her Rally Fighter runs in a 6.2-liter V-8 to the giant rear wheels before reaching a time-limit top speed of insane 131 mph according to Top Speed.

Roman's orange Lamborghini is classy and top-of-its-class. Its design and appeal are fitting for his character for being calm, collected and always have his "swag" on. Tej's ride, the Ripsaw is definitely one insane ride. According to Digital Trends, apocalypse doesn't even stand a chance on his ride. This is certainly what he needs for the action and constant bullet-spraying he and the rest of the cast encounter on a regular basis.

The Ice Ram of Hobbs as relayed by Equipment World presumably has a giant fin on the back is some type of ripper for ice and snow. Definitely interesting how this would be used and utilized in the movie "Fast and Furious 8."

These cars alone are sure to bring in the necessary and expected excitement to watch the movie "Fast and Furious 8" over and over again. If car enthusiasts don't salivate upon seeing these cars, there's no telling what else will.
