Factual error: In the scene where Shaw is talking to a goon while fixing his car he states the simplest things cause the most problems while holding a spark plug. We know this can't be right as Brian concludes the car is a turbo diesel like a Le Mans car, which would actually use a glow plug and not a spark plug. (00:19:50)

Suggested correction: That's exactly the problem that Shaw is referring to, a member of his team installed the incorrect plug which caused a problem, i.e. a Spark Plug and not a Glow Plug (a simple thing, causing the problem), along with the 'good' being simple minded and causing the rest of Shaw's team a problem.

The glow plug isn't what causes combustion in a diesel like how a sparkplug does for gas. The wiring harness for a spark plug vs a glow plug is completely different and they aren't interchangeable. You can't just accidentally put a spark plug in a diesel, it doesn't work like that.

Revealing mistake: Just as the buggy flips Brian's car, it does a handbrake turn and on the ground are tyre marks from a previous take. (00:27:30)

Continuity mistake: Roman removes a 100 Grand bar from the shot-down vending machine. In the close-up shot, there are several other 100 Grand bars visible. One of them is held by springs on both sides, with the left side slightly raised. In the next shot, that specific bar has vanished from the pile. (00:34:10)

Casual Person

Factual error: Roman is searching through the shot-down vending machine after the massive chase. Two of the products shown in the machine are a couple of Nestle 100 Grand bars and a couple of Nestle Butterfingers bars. This scene takes place in the UK - 100 Grand bars and Butterfingers bars aren't available in vending machines in the UK, just specialist sweet shops. (00:34:10)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: After the first big action sequence in London, the gang meets back in their HQ to discuss the next course of action. During this scene, Gina Carano has her hands hooked into her belt/pockets, when during various camera changes, she's got her hands around her in a hugging motion, then back to her belt/pockets. (00:35:00)

Continuity mistake: Tej tells Hobbs he's got this, and the scene changes to establishing shots around London. The first shot shows a shot of London, featuring many landmarks and Big Ben in the background. The time in the first shot is 2:10. The shot changes with the camera closer to Big Ben and the time is suddenly 3:00. (00:36:25)

Casual Person

Character mistake: Tej mentions that the BMWs they used were factory-line, ie. unmodified. Hobbs then says that they were twin-turbo V8s "spitting out 560 ponies". The BMW M5s they have are E60 models (2005-2010) powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V10, producing 507 horsepower. (00:38:30)

Continuity mistake: At the shoot out, Gisele is talking with the wounded man who made the gadgets. He has a small amount of blood spilling out of his mouth, down the side of his cheek. A couple of shots later, the blood is now a long streak down his cheek. Then it is suddenly just a tiny smear of blood around the edge of his mouth. (00:46:20)

Casual Person

Factual error: The range rover has a UK 'PE60 EKJ' number plate indicating it's a late 2010 car. It's a 2002-2005 model. (00:48:00)

Continuity mistake: When Brian is taken into the prison by 2 guards his jumpsuit comes open. As he is being dragged through the door it is now closed again. (00:56:00)

Revealing mistake: When Letty slides her Interceptor around the statue during her race with Dom, you can see skidmarks on the ground from previous attempts. (01:06:00)

Friso94

Visible crew/equipment: When Letty and Dom are racing through London, you can see crowd control fences along quite a few of the sidewalks, especially when they are at Picadilly Circus. (01:07:40)

Friso94

Continuity mistake: In the first movie, Mia tells Brian that Letty lived down the road, was into cars since she was 10 and immediately had Dom's attention, but here Dom tells Letty that he gave her her first scar at age 15, when they first met. (01:08:00 - 01:09:00)

Continuity mistake: When Dom hands the cross to Letty, the chain is dangling. Camera cuts and now the dangling part of the chain has disappeared. (01:10:30)

Trivia: When Brian goes undercover as a prison inmate to talk to Braga, his fake name is T. Bridges. Bridges is the real last name of Ludacris who plays Tej, and T is the first initial of Tyrese Gibson who plays Roman. (00:55:25)

More trivia for Fast & Furious 6

Question: Han's death, seen in Tokyo Drift, is seen here, tying up the threads and the jumping timeline leading into Furious 7. Was it always an option to re-feature that down the line to unite all the movies, or as more sequels were made did the makers just realise there was an opportunity to make use of the event?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: The most logical answer would be that quite a lot of people liked the character Han. Since he dies at the end of "Tokyo Drift" the filmmakers probably came up with the idea of having the movie take place after all the other ones, so as to feature Han in more sequels.
