The Fast and the Furious

Other mistake: Not necessarily a mistake, but still odd. When Brian pulls up with the Supra on the flatbed, and he pops the hood, the wrong engine is shown. Yes, Jessie says it's a 2JZ, which is technically correct, but it's the naturally aspirated version 2JZ-GE, not the twin turbo 2JZ-GTE. Are we supposed to believe that they replaced the engine and the transmission of this car before it was done? It would have been cheaper and easier to find a twin turbo version with the right transmission.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Brian shoots the guy on the motorcycle, he gets out of the car and clearly shuts the door before crossing the street, but when he runs back to the car to chase Dom, the door is open. (01:34:23)

108

Continuity mistake: If you pay attention to the Supra at the end of the movie when he's chasing the dirtbikes, and when he's racing Dom you will notice that it switches from clean to very dirty many times. (01:29:53)

Visible crew/equipment: When Mia sees Brian coming into the house, she looks down at herself and decides to change. When she takes off her shirt and throws it at the camera, look at the mirror and you can see the cameraman's elbow just coming into shot for a few frames. (00:29:20)

Revealing mistake: In the final racing scene, when Dominic's car hits the truck and flips in the air, you can clearly see the stunt driver's helmet as the car turns in the air. (01:37:45)

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Brian jumps onto the semi truck to save Vince if you look closely at the back of Brian's pants you can clearly see the safety cable that holds him onto the semi truck. (01:26:17)

Continuity mistake: When Letty goes to race the guy with the RX-7 at race wars, she has Sparco racing seats, but when it shows the RX-7 driver rev his engine, it flips back and she now has factory seats. (01:10:29)

72

Other mistake: At the end of the first race scene with the four cars, Brian spins out. As he spins out you can see that the Asian guy in the white car comes toward him, but when Brian completes the spinout the white car doesn't pass him. (00:20:27)

67

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Brian is chasing the guys on motorcycles, one of the motorcycle drivers shoots at Brian in his Supra. As he does they show Brian drives past the same brown Ford Thunderbird twice. (01:32:35)

Visible crew/equipment: When Brian picks up Dom he runs away from cops. He drives between two cop cars and then jumps. When you look carefully you can see a ramp for the car. (00:25:27)

Continuity mistake: In the last scene with the three black Civics, the spoiler on the car Dom is driving is different at the beginning of the scene (when Vince jumps off the back for example) than at the end (when he spins out). (01:21:44)

63
The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: There is a scene near the end of the movie, where the hero is chasing the two guys on motorcycles that just shot his friend. At one point, first the motorcycles, and then the car leap over a hill on the street. You can clearly see two ramps at the top of the hill, one for each motorcycle. (01:32:50)

Continuity mistake: After Dom parks his car in the garage after the first race, and walks outside, the cop car that comes down the hill is a Ford Crown Victoria. When the cop car turns around in the middle of the street it's a Chevy Caprice. Easiest way to spot the difference? First car has wide lights, the second one doesn't. (00:23:20)

36

Continuity mistake: At the last truck hijacking scene Letty's rear window is shot. When she pulls up again there isn't even a scratch on the window. A second later with a shot in the car the window is broken again and another second later it hasn't got a scratch. (01:20:39)

Revealing mistake: When Brian is maxing out his car in the parking lot at the beginning of the film, when he spins out his reverse lights are on. (00:03:30)

39

Continuity mistake: In the race between the four cars, you see Brian after his first shot of NOS pass Edwin, but in the next shot you see him pass the same person again. (00:19:23)

28

Character mistake: In the opening scenes when Brian goes back to the shop, he demands that he needs some nitrous to boost his low top speed. Well I'm sure that most tuners will agree that more horsepower doesn't equal more top speed, it only contributes IF you have a transmission that can handle it and distribute it. (00:09:53)

64

Continuity mistake: The final hijacking scene was shot on Dominigoni Parkway Road. You can see where they pass the same background a few times. In the beginning of the scene they pass over the same bridge twice. You can also see where they switched from traveling east to west and vice versa. (01:17:40)

Johnny Tran: I'll see you in the desert next month. Be ready to have your ass handed to you.
Dom: You're gonna need more than that crotch rocket.
Johnny Tran: I got something for you.

More trivia for The Fast and the Furious

Question: Jessie is using a car design program from the Supra. Does anyone know either what the program is or where to get it?

Neon_Turbo

Chosen answer: It's not a real program, just some CGI. As well as when the pictures of "what it could look like" show up. Those are existing pictures of the car.
