Fast and Furious 6 invented a special flip-car for stunts

Living life a quarter mile at a time can take some improvisation. In the sixth Fast and Furious film, the filmmakers actually built their own car, a custom “flip car” designed for some key sequences.

A report from Jalopnik states that the producers of Fast and Furious wanted something that was versatile and fast, but could still topple other cars and take a beating. Not an easy task, but Dennis McCarthy, who was part of the production car team, set out to build something that could do it all. He ended up with the Flip-Car, a four-wheel drive buggy with a low wedge up front so any oncoming traffic essentially uses it as a ramp.

The engine is an LS3 V8, if that’s what you’re into, it uses a speedboat’s V-drive system for that extra oomph. The exhaust was apparently the hardest thing to get right. It weighs nearly 4,000 pounds, and yes, it’s rideable, although it took stunt riders a few days to get used to the handling.

If it’s been a minute since you’ve seen 2013’s Fast and Furious 6, Luke Evans flip-cars around London in a sequence that casts Owen Shaw as someone for the crew to worry about.

Police cars drive left and right in turn. The flip car looks incredibly convincing and is considered a custom vehicle in the adventure film. Of course you would have to do that with the thing, it’s not exactly conspicuous.

Fast and Furious 10 is currently being filmed. Now that Sung Kang is back as Han, we’re waiting with bated breath for the flip car. Hopefully this time they get into space like that – they take one of those prestigious muscle cars, drive down the other end of a runway and just hop in the flip car at full tilt.

Look, I would pay any cinema price for this.
