5. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T
When Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto, unveiled his late father’s 1970 Dodge Charger R/T to Brian O’Conner, all muscle car fans were in awe. Seeing a true piece of American muscle car history in a movie with lots of Japanese imports must have seemed like a gift. This street dragster is one of the most menacing cars in the series because there is a lack of loud paint jobs, stickers, fancy rims or body kits.
It’s an evil-looking 1970 Charger with a blown hood, a black roll bar and a racing steering wheel. Because they featured the car in four F&F movies, Dom’s Charger changed its looks numerous times. This means they had to build and destroy many stunt cars in the process.
Although they sold most of them, they sent one to the Illinois-based Volo Auto Museum. In 2010, the museum decided to sell the car for the low price of $130,000, but the appraised value of the car was around $200,000. Even though it is a lot of money, its low price is not far from non-F&F prices. Similarly modified Chargers with 426 Hemi or 500 engines can easily cost around $80,000.
Reportedly, they tuned the engine in this movie car to 950 HP. When you add that to the fact it was one of the most prominent cars in the movie franchise, you’ll understand where that $200,000 price comes from.
