Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) was behind many wheels across the Fast & Furious movies, and among all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious sit some of the best and most expensive in the franchise. Every car Dom drove in Fast and Furious is a powerful beast that reflects the protagonist’s personality, serving as an extension of the character’s onscreen presence. Dominic Toretto has appeared in eight Fast & Furious movies, as well as Diesel’s self-created and directed tie-in short film, Los Bandoleros. The actor will surely add a few more vehicles to this list with Fast X on the way.
Dom is a major fan of muscle cars, something that became apparent very early in the franchise. Rather than use typical models for speed during street races, Dom preferred something with horsepower. His love for this type of car was influenced by Dom’s father, another car fanatic, and Dom had a tendency to argue with Brian O’Conner over his friend’s loyalty to imports. Most recently, Dom appeared in a central role in the F9 cast. Dom will surely get behind the wheel of some more vehicles in the final two installments of Fast & Furious. Until then, here’s every car Dom drives in Fast and Furious.
1970 Dodge Charger R/T
What is the black car Dom drove in Fast and Furious‘ early movies? Dom’s signature car in The Fast Saga is the black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. Built by Dom and his father, it appeared in The Fast and the Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Furious 7 – where it was destroyed when Dom faced off against Deckard Shaw in LA. Based on how the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T looks at the hideout in F9, it seems Dom repaired the car after Furious 7.
One of the most recognizable out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T was a part of the second generation of cars, but featured a completely unique style from previous iterations. Equipped with one of the biggest motors Dodge had in production at the time, the R/T was the first to give the option of an installed 440 six-pack, which pushed out a whopping 375 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque. A cross between a luxury vehicle and a muscle car, the Charger remains in the annals of most coveted muscle cars of all time.
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
Not to be outdone by the other cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the end credits of The Fast and the Furious shows Dom escaping Los Angeles and driving a red Chevelle in Baja, Mexico. The car then returned in Fast & Furious when Dom drove home to attend Letty’s funeral. Dom later sanded the car, repainted it gray, and blew it up while trying to get vengeance for Letty’s “death” and then her subsequent resurrection several sequels later.
The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS had the option of four different engine styles, with the 454 (LS6) maxing out at a staggering 450 horsepower. Coming in a wide variety of paint colors, 15 in total, the LS6 454 was the third-fastest classic muscle car from the muscle car era and the 2nd fastest overall in 1970. It also featured the highest advertised horsepower at the time and has surpassed its retail value. If one wanted to purchase a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS today, one would have to shell out over $99,000 for the desirable Sport Coupe LS6 454.
1970 Plymouth Road Runner
Dom’s Road Runner was first seen at the end of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift when he encountered Sean at the race. He mentioned that he got the car from Han, which led back to Furious 7 when Dom traveled to Tokyo to retrieve Han’s belongings after his presumed death. Of course, Han’s death was faked by him and Mr. Nobody, returning for F9. Dom used a different Road Runner in the movie when he was back in Los Angeles.
Out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the Plymouth Road Runner was the most revolutionary of the muscle car era. While other muscle cars hiked up their price tags and beefed up their size, the Road Runner did the opposite. Not only does it get its name from a famous cartoon character, but each Road Runner was equipped with a special horn to mimic the character. This stripped-down and basic muscle car, when equipped with a 426-ci Street Hemi, reached a shocking 494 horsepower, living up to its iconic namesake.
2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8
Dom bought the Challenger in Spain and was later seen racing Brian at the end of Fast Five while celebrating their successful heist. In the next film, Fast & Furious 6, Dom and Brian were racing once again while using the same two cars. The fate of the car is currently unknown in The Fast Saga.
Out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 is the newest. Running on a V-8 engine, the Challenger reaches a max horsepower of 425 with 420 pound-feet of torque. Its retro styling is reminiscent of the muscle car era, to be sure, and features a lower suspension for expert handling.
1968 Dodge Charger Hellacious
Dom first used the 1968 Dodge Charger Hellacious in F9 when the group arrived in Edinburgh to hunt down Jakob Toretto to stop him from using the Project Ares device. The car was then used during the convoy sequence in Tbilisi, specifically in taking down the armored vehicle with magnets. The Charger was then given to Jakob Toretto, who later attempted to return it to Dom as the brothers made amends.
Out of all the cars Dom drives in Fast and Furious, the 1968 Dodge Charger Hellacious is by far the fastest. Custom-built by Speedkore, a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat HEMI V8 is what gives the vehicle a staggering 707 horsepower and 650 pound-foot of torque. The car also features a gated-manual Graziano transaxle from a Lamborghini Gallardo and also has a hydraulic handbrake to help deal with drifts and slides.

The first car Dom drives in the trailer is the old reliable 1970 Dodge Charger R/T while he’s talking to his son and driving in a street race against Dante. In addition, he also drops out of an airplane in the car and uses it to pull helicopters from midair.
Another new car that Dom drives in Fast X will be the 2023 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. The car was shown performing a series of tricks while filming in Turin, Italy, and in the trailer, Dom is driving it while being pursued by Dante. Other cars from the Fast X trailer that have unknown drivers are the 1971 Datsun 240Z, the Lamborghini Gallardo, and the 1966 Ford Fairlane. Any one of these bad boys could count as one of the cars Dom drives in Fast & Furious, but audiences will have to wait until the film drops in May to find out who exactly will be at the wheel.
