Cars of “Fast and Furious Six”

According to a Universal spokesman, in “Fast and Furious Six,” Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) will finally play out the sexual tension between him and his car that has been simmering since the first film and the audience will be able to view the relationship move to the next level.

In all seriousness, the “Fast and Furious” franchise from Universal Pictures is back and better than ever with it’s sixth installment written by Chris Morgan and directed by Justin Lin.

 

The Plot (No Spoilers)

Following “Fast Five” where Dom and Brian’s (Paul Walker) heist in Rio brought down a kingpin’s empire and scored them $100 million, “Fast Six” begins by showing how these two protagonists have moved all over the world to start new lives. However, their inability to return back to their hometown, and living forever on the run have left them feeling restless, according to IMDB.com.

During this time, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been working to track down an organization of deadly mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose head boss (Luke Evans) is assisted by a ruthless ally who is revealed to be Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Dom’s lost love he thought was dead. IMDB.com states the only way to stop the mercenaries and their criminal plan is to beat them on the street. Hobbs recruits Dom to assemble an elite street-car team in London. If they agree, Dom and Brian will be granted full pardons, allowing them to return home to a normal life in the states. To get a feel for the upcoming film and a visual taste of what’s to come, check out the trailer.
