"Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw" Some Outstanding Cars Used In The Movie by autojosh: 11:14am On Nov 08, 2019


Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is a spinoff of the “Fast & Furious” movie franchise. Like the previous franchises, Hobbs & Shaw features some automotive eye candies.

This spinoff stars regulars, former WWE wrestler Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson (Luke Hobbs) and Jason Statham (Deckerd Shaw). It also features Vanessa Kirby (Hattie) and Idris Elba, who played the role of a cyber bio-engineered terrorist (Brixton).
Typical of the Fast & Furious franchise, this edition is full of wits, humour, impossible car stunts and high-octane car races.

Not a few striking cars were used to execute the movie, some of which were postapocalyptic-looking utility vehicles.

Fast and Furious: Hobbs & Shaw debuted in cinemas worldwide on August 2. In Nigeria, it made N6.8 million on its first day, thus unseating Lion-King as the best-grossing movie on the first day in Nigeria.

Here, Autojosh.com highlights, in order of appearance in the movie, 8 outstanding cars used in Fast and Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.



McLaren 720S



The dark blue McLaren 720S featured in one of the major car-chase sequences.

The 720S treated viewers to several squeals and nice stunt sequences. Driven by Statham, the car engaged in some jaw-dropping dare-devil moves in what appears like the street of London. (Actually, all the stunt driving took place in Glasgow, which stood in for London).

The highpoint was when Stratham —behind the right-hand-drive wheel—slides the car under two opposing trailers.

However, what was particularly interesting about the scene with the 720s was how 3 people – Stratham, Vanessa Kirby and the incredible hulk in the form of Dwayne Johnson fitted in the McLaren. The McLaren isn’t exactly the most spacious car. Apparently, some adjustment or some CGI was done to create that interior scene.

Now, here are some things to know about the Mclaren 720S. A 720S will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, blow through a quarter-mile in 10.2 seconds at 145 mph, and will reach a claimed top speed of 212 mph.



The car is loaded with a massive 3,994cc 4-litre V-8 petrol engine and 7-speed Reverse Seamless Shift dual-clutch Gearbox (SSG) along with twin Electrically-Actuated Twin Scroll turbochargers, Dry sump. With the help of it, 568lbs Torque produces and generates Power 720ps /710bhp.

The McLaren is designed and manufactured by British automobile manufacturer McLaren Automotive. The 720S was launched on 7 March 2017.

The starting price for a McLaren 720S is about $315k. However, in Nigeria, the post-shipping and landing cost for a McLaren would be in the neighbourhood of N200million.



Rock Crawler (Customized Land Rover Defender 110)



Another prominent automotive feature in the Hobbs & Shaw was a Rock Crawler. Some unbelievable stunts were performed with it during a car chase sequence.

According to the producers, the initial design of the crawler was loosely based on a Land Rover Defender 110. However. it evolved during the process of filming.

The vehicle was made using gear that had been leftover from a past Fast & Furious movie. They ended up with a powerful machine: full tube chassis with 500 horsepower. Everything about the rock crawler was custom-built.

In the movie, Statham managed to achieve impossible manoeuvres with the utility vehicle during an escape scene.


MAN KAT1



Another vehicle that featured prominently in the Hobbs & Shaw is the iconic MAN KAT1.

The MAN KAT1 is part of a family of high-mobility off-road trucks developed by MAN SE for the German army.

In the movie, A MAN KAT1 was kept at the Eteon Headquarters and was used to escape from the facility.

The first model of the KAT1 was introduced in 1976. The original intention was to build a family of logistics vehicles, which could carry full loads across severe terrain whilst keeping up with modern main battle tanks. The first model produced was 8×8; 6×6 and 4×4 variants followed.

A few ex-military MAN KAT1 vehicles are released onto the second-hand market in Germany.




1935 Ford Truck RatRod



The year 1935 was a great year for auto-maker Ford. Both Ford cars and Ford trucks featured engineering improvements and new styling, and customers responded. When the tally was counted at the end of the year, more buyers chose Fords — both cars and trucks — than any other make.

A redesigned 1935 Ford Truck was used in the Hobbs & Shaw.

The vehicle just seemed to fit the environment. They took a Pro 2 truck, which is the ultimate in short-course off-road racing, and topped it off with a kit from Factory Five. So there is a monster chassis with a 1935 Ford pickup body over it. For the movie, the vehicle was then aged, to look like it had been sitting out for a few years, but the components beneath were spotless.

This is a preview of the latest.
All of us @MANNABBQGRILLS saw the movie 3 months ago.
It was da BOMB!

This is a short review of the movie.
Watch it if you can.
INTERESTING!!

Brixton Lorr is a cybernetically enhanced soldier who possesses superhuman strength, a brilliant mind and a lethal pathogen that could wipe out half of the world's population. It's now up to hulking lawman Luke Hobbs and lawless operative Deckard Shaw to put aside their past differences and work together to prevent the seemingly indestructible Lorr from destroying humanity.
Lot and lot of some eccentric driving skills all around.

They spent around 200 million USD to produce the movie.
But so far they have made almost 760 million US Dollars.

There are cars and there are cars. Not like those people who know nothing about cars but will just be shouting Benz up and down. Benz is for poor people who just wanna have a taste of what luxury feels like. Benz ain't in the league of exotic brands like bmw and Audi, Benz should be competing with the likes of Hyundai , Lexus etc who would definitely give them a run for their money.

I thought I was the only one with this point of view. It’s a very useless movie and the action package looks so wack as if it’s a musical film cheesy
