Did You Know!
Several hero cars for the new film are being procured from California-based Lucra Cars.
Rihanna was rumored for a role.
An early leaked version of the Superbowl TV spot showed the title "Furious 6" as the title of the film. The later released teaser poster and TV spot showed the final title of the film. However, the international version still carries the title Furious 6.
Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) did not have a driver's license before she began filming for the first part in the series.
Dennis McCarthy, the man behind building the vehicles used in the fast car franchise says that they used "a whole fleet of BMW M5s" in order to complete one sequence. McCarthy also said "We pretty much destroyed every single one later on in other scenes"; cars that appear on-screen in close-ups or action shots are not BMW E60 M5s.
The Dodge Daytona that Vin Diesel is driving was made custom. The actual car used in production was rebuilt by McCarthy and his team from the old $5,000 piece of junk that they first acquired.
Jason Statham and David Tennant were at different points considered to play the film's antagonist before Luke Evans signed on. Statham would go on to play antagonist Ian Shaw in the end credits scene and the seventh film.
The second Fast & Furious film to end on a cliff-hanger.
The post-credits sequence is Han's death from "Tokyo Drift", while using new footage to introduce Ian Shaw.
During Brian's (brief) deportation back to the U.S., he is detained under the alias, "T Bridges." This is a reference to both actor Todd Bridges and co-star Ludacris' real life last name.
