Continuity mistake: In the first race, the Supra crashes down after jumping the bridge, and a side shot shows that the Supra's rear wheels have changed from the expensive chrome items to the standard Supra wheels.
Continuity mistake: When the Evolution smashes into the gate in the boatyard it should have made a really big dent in the front of the car or at least a scratch on the bodywork. Yet in the next scene when you see it come to a stop in front of the Ferrari, the car is in perfect condition with no dents or scratches.
Visible crew/equipment: Near the end, in a shot of Monica and the baddie (just before they get onto the boat) standing beside a large vehicle, the camera is quite close and then it tracks backwards. The reflection of the legs of the steadicam operator walking backwards as he moves the camera, is seen at the side of the car.
Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene towards the end of the film, Brian is not wearing his seat belt in close-ups, yet in the outside-the-car shots, the driver has his seat belt on.
Revealing mistake: When Suki and Tej are being booked for speeding when they took Brian's and Roman's cars, the police officer next to them should be writing on his notepad, but instead the words are already written and he is just moving the pen over these words.
Continuity mistake: When Brian and Rome find Verone's red car at the impound lot, just after they get out of their cars, the Mitsubishi sign on the Evo's front is missing. In the next shot, however, it's there again.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the opening race scene, you'll notice that Suki's car has neon lights around the rear license plate. However, in one shot, just after the second corner, there are no neons. One of the less detailed clone cars perhaps?
Continuity mistake: In the very first racing scene, when they all go around the first turn and it shows them all struggling to hold their steering wheels through the turn, it shows an overview of the 4 cars. As you can see the pink Honda S2000, is in front, and to the left of the red Mazda RX-7. In the very next shot, the Honda S2000 is directly behind the RX-7.
Continuity mistake: When Brian is driving the Skyline to the first race, and during the race, the car has rubber pedals. But after his Skyline gets shot with the ESD and he tries to slam on the brakes, the pedals are the aftermarket Momo pedals.
Continuity mistake: When Brian is escaping from the police at the start, he drives past a building with a big face and an elephant on it. When the Skyline drives past the building, looking out from the driver's side window, the car is driving past the building again.
Continuity mistake: When Brian and Roman are speeding down the highway to get to the boatyard, the camera cuts to inside police headquarters (I think). On the computer screen are two GPS signals (Brian and Roman), and it says 6th and 7th Street, but when it cuts to a wider angle it says 4th, 5th and 6th Street, indicating the screen has moved up instead of down. (Zoom is required.)
Continuity mistake: After Brian's Skyline is shot with the electric thing, when he hits a parking meter it shatters into smithereens and there is no damage or dents on his car. In the next shot his hood is bent up and his car is totaled. This is because the original scene was of Brian hitting something much more solid, however, Paul Walker who was doing the stunt himself, lost control and hit the parking meter. They didn't bother to retake as it looked much cooler. (Slow motion is required. DVD Special Features.)
Continuity mistake: In the first race scene after the jump, the gold car crashes into the sign head on, yet the whole back of the car is demolished, not the front.
Continuity mistake: When Luda is explaining the rules of the drag to Rome and the bloke in the Yenko, he has his hands on his knees, then in the following shot they're behind his back, then again in the next shot they're on his knees. All in quick succession.
