Over the course of the Fast & Furious franchise, we’ve seen the stars hop into all kinds of awesome vehicles – some of which have managed to become iconic in their own right in the legacy of action movies. The truth of the matter is, however, that cinema is filled to the brim with legendary cars often driven by legendary stars. This got me thinking: if the crew of Furious 7 could drive any classic movie car in the franchise’s next sequel, what would they choose?

Fortunately, I was able to get an answer to that very question earlier this month while attending a special press event in Los Angeles for the upcoming blockbuster. Having the opportunity to talk with Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Dwayne Johnson, I asked them all the aforementioned question, and they gave me a fantastic variety of answers and explanations.

Jason Statham
Character: Deckard Shaw

Personality: Though we technically first met him in the post-credits sequence of Fast & Furious 6, but Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw gets fully fleshed out in an excessively badass villain role in Furious 7. He’s a government trained ass-kicker, and he’s on a mission to avenge his brother, Owen Shaw, by killing the series’ protagonists.

Movie Car of Choice: Befitting a character that’s all about muscle and speed, Jason Statham went for a rather classic car with his choice, and decided to take a vehicle out of Steve McQueen’s garage: the 1968 Ford Mustang GT from director Peter Yates’ crime thriller Bullitt. Not only is it an awesome choice, but this car definitely wouldn’t look at all out of place in a Fast & Furious film.
