What Car Does Letty Drive In Fast And Furious 6

What Car Does Letty Drive In Fast And Furious 6 – In the event that there’s an unlikely legend in Fast & Flabergasted 6 it’s the Jensen Interceptor. Built by very small Jensen Motors in Britain between 1966 and 1976, the Interceptor is a big, rear-drive personal luxury machine in the train of thought of the Jaguar XJ-S or a Bristol. Nevertheless rather than a temperamental, Euro-weenie six or high-strung V12 under its hood, the Interceptor was powered by pure American muscle: either 383 cubic inches (6. 3 liters) or 440 cubic inches (7. 2 liters) of old-school, carbureted, V8 American muscle. And that made it kind of super cool rear when you could utilize phrases like “super cool” without paradox.

In Fast & Mad 6 the 1971 Jensen Interceptor is driven by a character who profits from a presumed fatality. OK, it’s Letty, as played by Michelle Rodriguez, the once super-tight significant other of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) who evidently died in a tumbling ’70 Plymouth Road Jogger about halfway through 2009’s Fast & Furious, your fourth film in the series.

Instead of repairing the Interceptors to their original, leather-lined, wood-trimmed and high-gloss finish, it was decided that Letty’s Jensen would be kind of menacing: finished in dull gray, with massive area pipes dumping out just forward of the back wheels. But it’s not an ancient Chrysler engine breathing out through those pipes. Jensen may have built the Interceptor as a luxury car, but it’s a Spartan machine in Fast & Mad 6. Gone are the carpeting, the air-conditioning and whatever else that hints at comfort. Instead there’s a thick roll cage and two Sparco R100 seating. AutoMeter gauges fill the holes left behind by the Jensen’s original devices.
