Continuity mistake: When we first see Daniel in the taxi and the guy jumps in the back, when Daniel removes the steering wheel from the car the armrest has all four electric window switches present but when he changes the wheel whilst driving with Emilien in the back for the first time, the armrest only has one switch meaning a right hand drive modified car was used in motion shots. Hard to spot but its there.

Continuity mistake: When Daniel gets into the 2 Mercedes, he breaks one of the side mirrors, but in the race the mirror is there again without a single scratch.


Continuity mistake: During the shootout in the garage, somebody shoots at a gas tank and it explodes. When the criminals are gone, there's no fire.

Continuity mistake: When Daniel and Émilien are racing the Mercedes under the bridge, there is a sign for "Man In Black". Watch that scene, and you will notice that the sign returns after one shot.

Revealing mistake: When they attach a GPS device to the gang's car and they watch their situation on the computer screen, you can see on the left top part of the screen some playback, stop, rewind, . buttons, showing that it's a pre-made video that they play manually.
