A handful of cars you’ll see racing in “The Fate of the Furious.”Universal

When “The Fate of the Furious” hits theaters Friday, all eyes will be on Dom’s crew and their fast cars. “Fate” introduces plenty of shiny new vehicles for Dom, Letty, Roman, and the rest of the Fast family to destroy.

While you’ll see several flashy cars race through New York City, from a classic Corvette and Lamborghini, many of the cars were modified to accommodate the winter conditions and stunts when the crew filmed in Iceland.

Universal released a list of several of the cars you’ll see in the movie in its production notes, while the duo from auto series Mighty Car Mods went to “Fast and Furious” car coordinator Dennis McCarthy’s garage in Southern California to check out a bunch of the cars individually.
