Fast and the Furious, The - A 10-Second Car?
When Toretto and Brian take the orange Supra out for its first run, they pull up to the light next to a Ferrari 355 Spider. When they race, the cars are almost neck and neck for a good 10 seconds. Toretto said that Brian owed him a 10-second car, and they beat the Ferrari--a car that does the quarter mile in 13.7 seconds (as reported by Road and Track magazine, June 1996, Page 73)--by just a few car lengths. So an allegedly "10-second car" just edged out a nearly 14-second car. If that Supra was a true 10 second car (which is almost impossible in a street-legal car, as the 627 bhp McLaren F1--fastest car street-legal car in the world--does the quarter in 11.6), then Toretto and Brian really would've "smoked" the Ferrari.

No one said the car was street legal. And Horse Power doesn't always mean more speed, you have to take about a million things into effect. 1.) a stock McLaren F1 does the quarter in 11. 2.)coefficient of drag, aerodynamics, the amount of torque beings put to the ground, etc. 3.)no where did it say they were racing a quarter mile against said Ferrari 4.)Nothing on that supra was stock, remember how they all stared in awe at the engine? Yeah. Then they rebuilt the entire thing. Another thing, the Top Secret Supra GT300 (Super Street, Sept. 2001) tops out at around 200 mph and has 720 hp @ 8500 rpm and 470lb -ft of torque. Street legal. Speaking of ten second cars, why must he be b**chy when he has a 900 hp '69 Dodge Charger in the garage. Oh well. Later

Even though you say the Ferrari will run a 13.7 in the quarter mile you have to remember that the Supra did beat it and did so w/ out having to use NOS. I almost guarantee that the Supra would run a 10 second quarter if it was to use its two shots of nitrous.

There IS such thing as a 10 second car... and there is such thing as a STREET LEGAL 10 second car... I work on a STREET LEGAL 94 Cobra that runs the 1/4 in 10.4! It has a 4.10 saleen rear end cobra upper and lower intake... port and polished heads... runs a 100 shot of nitrous from Nitrous Works out of Texas...

another thing to consider is the fact that that supra is a bonified tuner car owned by Mr. Craig Leiberman ... and is in fact a 10 second as proven on the drag strips it has been raced on ... however... there wasn't a 10 second performance in that movie... safety and recording sake ...

Aside from everyone else picking up on your thread i just want to point out that brian and dom are swerving through THREE lanes of traffic while the ferrari has a straight run, as soon as the supra gets back onto a clear straight he completely whoops the ferrari. So the supra is clearly as fast as it's meant to be.

It's actually quite possible to make a street legal car that will do the quarter mile in 10 seconds or less..... I've seen a street legal 900hp Dodge Viper

Brian needs NOS to get the Supra under 10 seconds. When he raced the Ferrari, he wouldn't have used as much NOS as he would if he was "circuit racing". When you're illegally racing like that, times mean nothing, its just to see who gets there first. So, I'm thinking that he only made the car go as fast as he needed it to. NOT as fast as the car COULD go.

well the supras easily become 10 second cars. The Fact that "Brian" wasnt a good driver in this movie, but just a beginner, can add to the fact. you guys have to remember that the quarter miles not everything .. just because the stats say 13.7 doesnt mean that guy can make it go 13.7. i made my evo run a 13.1 when it was stock yet the stats say the best you can get it stock is a 13.9 .. stats dont mean crap.

To The Fast and The Furious Fan, the car on the cover is actually the Toyota Supra driven at the end, yes, by Dom. If you look closely, you can tell. It would be easy to mistake for the Eclipse, but it is not. If you need help, check out: http://www.geocities.com/aangel1984/Cars.html And compare the cars, for instance the intake on the hood of the one on the cover and the supra, and if that is not enough double check the fog lights on the car. Don't let the green tint fool you, the car on the cover is actually the Supra.

There is no way an Evil Lancer 7 (which AT STOCK is about 300 HP because it has a crappy turbo four cylinder engine) beat out a McLaren F1 in ANY race. The only way the Skyline or Supra would win is in a QUARTER MILE race with some serious under-the-hood work. Those cars (the Skyline is the only illegal car in that list - and it can be imported granted you go through a private company to make it street legal) are illegal because of US car policies involving emissions, and importing from Japan. FOR GOD'S SAKE, you can go to a auto mall and buy Octane boosters that do just about nothing and aren't technically street legal in use. Same with tires (though those do affect how your car races - a lot). You're full of it, and made it all up - the McLaren's top speed is 241 mph, it's the third fastest production car in the world. The Supra is the fastest of those three when suped up - the GT300 - tops out at 200 mph. Don't make stuff up and post it. The world's fastest supra goes 164 mph in 9.2 seconds. The car in the movie was a ten second car - it's not just some term.

It is possible to have a 10 second car. The 1988 Callaway Corvette Sledgehammer has a 10.6 second quarter mile. I also know people that race at PIR (Portland International Raceway) in Portland, Oregon that get high eights on the quarter mile!

First of all, the orange Supra in TFATF was a 10 Second car, you can find this info on TFATF website. Secondly, I have a few slip-ups that I would like to post, but cannot because there are too many being reviewed. *If you have a copy of the movie, look at the cover, you can clearly see Dom driving the Green Eclipse. He never got to do this because the car exploded before he could take the car from Brian. *Brian did not actually owe Dom a ten second car, the eclipse's 1/4 mile time is actually 14.1 seconds, again, found on TFATF website. Thanks. Peace 'n Love!

fastnthefuriousfan, on the cover, that is the Supra that Dom driving. NOT the Eclipse. Remember, the Eclipse had a black Carbon Fiber hood.

tlo, I'm afraid you're very, very incorrect. "Ok- just so you know that the McLaren F1-- is not the fastest car... If you look over seas- the skyline,Supra,evil 7"lancer" (which has a 1000hp) beat the McLaren F1 so bad in the japan motor race. "THE Supra did when that race" McLaren F1 is fastest cause they allow it in the US. Alot of the cars are not allowed to come into the us, because of speed... just my 2 cents.... " The McLaren F1 WAS the fastest production in the world. WAS. It's quarter-mile time is irrelevant. Why? The fastest production car in the world is the car that can reach the HIGHEST SPEED (in this case, 241 mph...though this record was broken by both the Bugatti Veyron (currently the holder of fastest production car in the world) and the Koenigsegg CCR). How fast a car accelerates and how fast it CAN GO are different variants of physics. A ten second car may be an expression, but that Supra is LITERALLY A TEN SECOND CAR. Look it up. As for the Skyline and Supra being faster than a McLaren...no. Just...no. STOCK FOR STOCK McLaren destroys both of them. Post-modification, in terms of TOP SPEED the McLaren STILL DESTROYS THEM. The only way those two are faster would be in a quarter mile run. That's it. And that isn't the determining factor in the FASTEST CAR. That was an interesting theory about the McLaren only being considered the fastest because it's allowed in the US...yeah...NO. We're talking fastest PRODUCTION cars when we're talking McLaren or any of those twelve-cylinder baddies. As for the Evil Lancer. I've seen two, and though they look cool, I'm not a big fan of turbo-charged, four cylinder engines (GARBAGE). I've heard of 420 HP Laners, but not 1000, in fact, I seriously doubt that's true...at all. You can import a Skyline and get it modified up to 1000 HP at the tires, maybe a bit more, and there have been a few instances of 1200 HP Supras, but that whole Evil Lancer thing was bull. Some cars aren't allowed in America because of their ACCELERATION. And there are several reasons certain cars aren't considered street-legal (go into a specialized Auto shop sometime - they sell OCTANE BOOSTERS THAT DO NEXT TO NOTHING THAT AREN'T STREET LEGAL). Hell, your tires can be non-street legal. While I was checking my resources, I came upon some new info: "The Bugatti Veyron is no longer the world's fastest car. Today, a new automaker called Barabus unveiled a car with 1005 horsepower, a ridiculous 0-60 time of 1.67 seconds, and a top speed of 270 mph. Even better, it will be sold for under $500,000 -- much less than the Bugatti's $1.3 mil" Google it. ^That's a car that utilizes the physics of fast acceleration and high top speed. One of the fastest Supras in the world went from 0 to +160 MPH (it was in the 160s) in 9.4 seconds. Rice Rockets generally don't get to 200 mph or more (except for the Supra GT300). Don't just make up stuff and post it, expecting everyone to eat it all up dude.

ok. why are y'all arguing about a movie. they were really probably goin about 45 to 50 anyway. its a movie! they gotta make it look close so its more intense. it the damn car went through blowin everyone away then it wouldn't be a good movie. that movie is so far off anyway. when the car brian's car gets lit on fire... torretto yells NOs! ok. NOs isn't flamable. when torretto is talkin after the first race he says. "granny shiftin, and not double clutchin like ya shoulda been" why the hell would you double clutch in a race?! think about it people.

If you had looked on the Fast and Furious site, the Supra is 720hp. All the stats are listed.

okay guys, the 10 second car is just an expression. most street cars average 12, 13 seconds.

Actually..... the McLaren F1 isn't the fastest car in the world. It IS however the fastest production car in the world. And that can be proven..... as it holds the guinness world record for fastest road-production car. tlo, either those cars weren't stock or the McLaren was having problems..... cause there is no way a stock Supra could outrun a stock McLaren F1. I don't know about an Evil Lancer... cause I've never seen one. But I can assure you... that any street legal Supra would have a tuff time beating a McLaren F1...
