In order to prevent Kip's death, Randall must reassemble his team and steal 50 exotic cars and have them on a container ship in a few days in 72 hours. It will be tough with Raymond threatening to kill Kip in the car crusher with him in the car and the police unit GRAB after Randall and and Randall's old rival wanting to work for Raymond, to pull off the impossible.
Freb: You ever feel bad about any of this?
Donny: Hell, no. I'm Robin Hood, man. I rob from the rich and give to the needy.
Freb: You mean the poor.
Donny: No, like I said, the needy. 'Cause brother, we need this car.
Trivia: 13 Mustangs from 1967-1968 were modified to be "Eleanor" in the movie. One was a True Shelby GT500, but this was used by Bruckheimer as a reference piece and used by him personally. The rest were run of the mill Mustangs modified with bodykits and other goodies. One was chopped up to film certain sequences (in car shots, etc.), 2 were destroyed, and the other Mustangs were modified to perform certain tasks (Chases, Jumps, etc.).
