Dominic Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, drives quite a few exotic cars in Fast and Furious that resonates with his gruff and tough personality. And it wouldn’t be wrong to say that these cars have as fans as Vin Diesel himself. Today we’ll have a look at some of the cars driven by Dominic Toretto across The Fast Saga.
Dom Toretto is a fan of powerful American muscle cars, which is evident from his selection of wheels across the franchise. He has often been in heated debates with Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner over his love for imported cars like JDMs.
The cars that Vin Diesel drives in the Fast and Furious franchise ooze stealth, power, and speed, reflecting his on-screen character’s nature. However, we believe this list is not exhaustive, as we expect more and more Fast Saga installments to come.
Vin Diesel has made eight Fast Saga appearances and was also seen in his own directorial, Los Bandoleros. Let’s see what his set of wheels looks like.
1970 Dodge Charger R/T
The Charger, Dom’s signature black car, needs no elaborate introduction. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you already know that the Charger sits on top of all the Vin Diesel cars in the Fast and Furious franchise.
Dom and his father built this Charger together, and we’ve seen him flaunting this ultimate muscle car in many movies. These are The Fast and the Furious, Fast & Furious, and Fast Five. It sustained serious damages in Furious 7 while fighting against Deckard Shaw in LA. However, the car again appears in Dom and Letty’s farmhouse in Thailand in Furious 7, hinting that they were rebuilding the car.
Talking about Charger’s specs, the movie version boasts of a massive 526 cubic inch Hemi V8 engine producing a whopping 900hp. Furthermore, the car could produce up to 1100 hp with the NOS kit. However, in reality, the car had a comparatively modest 440 Magnum Engine. This was just to ensure maximum control for shooting purposes.

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
If you were patient enough to wait till the end credits sequence of The Fast and the Furious, you might’ve seen Dom driving a red Chevrolet Chevelle in Baja, Mexico, after fleeing LA. The car again reappears in Fast & Furious in the scene where Dom drives home for Letty’s funeral.
However, the car, later painted grey, explodes and gets destroyed alongside Brian O’Conner’s R34 Nissan Skyline while fighting Fenix to take revenge for Letty’s death.
1970 Plymouth Road Runner
Vin Diesel has been seen driving the Road Runner in two Fast and Furious movies, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, as well as in Furious 7. On a faceoff with Sean, he is seen driving the car toward the end of the former. In contrast, he is seen driving and crashing a Burnt Orange Roadrunner in Furious 7. This is during the chase sequence featuring Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham, in Los Angeles.
2009 Challenger SRT-8: Another Vin Diesel Dodge in Fast and Furious
You’ll find Vin Diesel racing this 2-door muscle car alongside Paul Walker’s GT-R towards the end of Fast Five, after a successful Rio Heist. The duo appears again with the same cars in the opening scene of Fast & Furious 6 in the Canary Islands, Spain. However, the car hasn’t so far appeared in any other installments in the Fast Saga.
What car does Vin Diesel Drive in Fast and Furious- F9?
Vin Diesel drives a 1968 mid-engineered Dodge Charger Hellacious across the streets in Edinburgh in F9 while chasing down Jakob Toretto, played by John Cena. Later, the car appears when the crew chases Otto’s armed convoy in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Wisconsin-based performance builder SpeedKore plonked a 707 horsepower 6.2 liter V8 Hellcat engine in the Charger. In addition, they also put a Graziano transaxle derived from a Lamborghini Gallardo, making it an ultimate performance beast.
What car is Vin Diesel driving in Fast X?
2023 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. Phew! The latest Charger from Dodge’s stable with a self-explanatory moniker is one car you’ll see Dom driving alongside the 1970 Charger R/T in Fast X. This comes as no surprise, given Dodge’s long-standing association with the franchise and obviously Dom’s penchant for American muscle. Fans have spotted Vin Diesel driving this car across the streets of Turin in Italy. This is on a chase sequence with Jason Momoa, who plays Dante.
