Fast & Furious 6

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene on the bridge involving the tank, two cars (silver Toyota Corolla hatchback, licence NE34 12 and a black VW Bora, licence NU67 67) appear during many shots, often travelling in different directions on the bridge and either ahead or behind the chase.


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: Throughout the entire movie, Hobbs has a goatee. But when Hobbs is driving and talking on the phone to Tej, his goatee is gone. In Hobbs' next scene, the goatee is suddenly back again. (01:22:35 - 01:23:55)


Continuity mistake: During the runway scene, Shaw's vehicle is seen fitted with HID type headlights (bluish tinge). Yet during the sweeping wide angle shots and when Shaw drives into the cargo plane, the lights are a standard yellow.


Continuity mistake: During the scene where the cable is shot into the sides of the cliffs to stop the convoy, there are no civilians in the area. As soon as the convoy hits the cable and stops, you can see two normal cars just feet away from it. Not only were the cars never there before, but they would have also gotten stopped by the cable. (01:27:00)

Continuity mistake: Han's Charger gets pretty badly damaged during the chase over the runway - especially when he hits it up against the Range Rover with Shaw's guys in it. Yet at the end of the chase, it doesn't even have so much as a scratch. (01:47:55 - 01:54:15)


Continuity mistake: In scenes showing how Letty survived the explosion it shows her crawling out of the car then getting blown down the hill, but in Fast and Furious she is still in the car when Phoenix shoots it, causing the explosion, so she couldn't have been blown down the hill.


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

Continuity mistake: When Dom runs against Letty the space between the cars and the girl who starts the race changes between shots. (01:04:00)

Continuity mistake: When Riley and Gisele are about to talk with the blonde guy who makes the gadget for Shaw, Riley moves her hands between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Roman is fighting the guy on the bonnet of Shaw's Land Rover, Tej signals him to get back on his Mercedes jeep. When Roman does this, the jeeps are pressed up against one another. Then Tej rams Shaw's Land Rover into the jetwash of the plane. Right before he does this, suddenly a massive gap has appeared between the cars.

Continuity mistake: During Brian's jump over the bridge debris, the Ford leans forward pretty far and is still rolling forward by the time the shot cuts. When he touches down, the angle of the car is a lot less steep. (01:28:00)


Continuity mistake: When Shaw orders the driver to take the tank to the other side, the tank swerves to the left and just as the camera changes you can see the tracks stop. In the next shot though it is still traveling at speed. (01:26:00)

Continuity mistake: When Dom and Letty are talking on the start line ready for their race, Dom's right arm is either on the passenger seat or down depending on the shot. (01:03:20)

Continuity mistake: After the race between Dom and Letty, they pull over and start to talk. The lights from Dom's car go from on to off and then on again.


Continuity mistake: When we first see Brian with his wife and baby he hands him the toy car. The baby holds a stuffed monkey in his right hand but a shot later he is grabbing the car.

Continuity mistake: Hobbs' jeep drives past the blockade on the bridge as seen in the wide shot. In the close-up it's meters behind and it drives past it again.

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: When the movie ends and they're saying grace, Jack the baby turns 180° around between shots.

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)


Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

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.

Tej Parker: It's all between you and the car you build. It's a bond, it's a commitment.
Hobbs: Sounds like a marriage.
Tej Parker: Yeah, but with cars, when you trade up they don't take half your shit.

More trivia for Fast & Furious 6

Question: Towards the end when the briefcase has been recovered and Hobbs asks what the reward should be, Dom replies "1327." What do these numbers refer to? Shaw's former hideout? Or an amnesty law code or something?


Chosen answer: It's the house number of Dom's old house in Los Angeles, from the first film. Hobbs says "name your price", so I guess Dom was asking him to buy his old house back (the gang are having a BBQ there in the next scene).
