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: 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: 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

Other mistake: Dom drives his Dodge Charger out of the Antonov's cargo hold - which is filled with, well, cargo - through the nose of the plane which was already on fire while he was still in it - and yet there isn't a single dent on his car before he loses control and rolls it.

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

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

Friso94

Factual error: Brian mentions that the engines in Shaw's flipcars sound like the engines you hear at Le Mans, turbo diesels. These cars have over 500 horsepower and are capable of reaching speeds upwards of 250 miles an hour. They also weigh less than one ton. Shaw's cars seem to meet all these demands: massive power and torque, no body fat and very fast. But here is also a problem: Dom is easily able to keep up in a factory-tuned BMW, which would be nearly twice as heavy, and Hobbs is able to keep up in his "four-wheeled tank", which would be thrice the weight, with even less power. There is no way that an extremely good driver like Shaw wouldn't be able to lose them with such an advantage in terms of power to weight ratios.

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

Add time

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.

Add time

Friso94

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

bigjimmyauk

Factual error: When Mia changes gear to pull the Antonov down, she moves the gear lever straight down, then straight up again, meaning she would end up in the same gear.

Add time

Friso94

Revealing mistake: The truck Roman and Tej are suspended in during the runway scene has no prop shaft attached (without it, the truck won't be able to drive at all). When you look at the bottom of the truck while it's in the air, you can see where the shaft was supposed to be attached to the rear differential.

Revealing mistake: After the tank runs over one of the army jeeps in the crash you can see a dummy.

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

Friso94

Factual error: When the Mercedes jeep hits the wall at the end of the plane, Shaw goes straight through the windshield and falls to his death in a cloud of shards. Windshields on modern cars, like that jeep, are made out of laminated glass, layers of glass and plastic, precisely designed to prevent shattering into those deadly daggers during an accident and kill the unlucky guy in front of it.

Add time

Friso94

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.

brianjr0412

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

Factual error: Hobbs would not be able to walk around London with a holstered gun on show, despite his position in the USA.

Factual error: In the scene of Paul Walker getting off a plane in an orange prison jumpsuit escorted by U. S. Marshals, the jackets worn by the Marshals have the misspelling "Marshall" printed on them.

00:56:45

Plot hole: At the end of the film Shaw and Dom drive their cars onto the plane and the pilot says they are too heavy to take off, but Shaw's team consisted of an extra car, which the plane was clearly prepared to take off with.

Add time

Factual error: There is no way that a 1 ton car suspended from a wire loosely twisted around the barrel would stop a 70 ton tank going at least 60 miles an hour dead in its tracks, let alone flip it end over nose.

Add time

Friso94

Plot hole: There is not enough time for Dom's team to prep the cars for Europe that Parker brought at auction, adding winches and roll cages etc.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The first police car Shaw flips changes from a hatchback to a saloon when Hobbs rams it.

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 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.

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

Factual error: None of the cargo on the plane at the end is strapped down - the cars and crates, boxes etc in the middle of the cargo hold. The plane would not even taxi like that, let alone take off.

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

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.

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

Other mistake: When Hobbs and Letty jump from the plane they jump down to the car, but earlier when Shaw's girlfriend fell out of the door she was blown backwards, this should apply to Hobbs and Letty too.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Dom goes to the street race it shows him watching Letty, Letty walks over to her car and the top is down, she starts to walk around the car, the shot cuts and suddenly the top is up.

Continuity mistake: When Han and Gisele are eating together in the beginning of the movie, Gisele opens the food plate. In the following shot, the lid of the food plate magically reappears again.

Shawky

Factual error: The route Dom and Letty use for their race is not consistent with the sights shown in the background - they are jumping all around the west end of London, then pull up near Battersea Power Station which is south of the Thames.

Continuity mistake: When the lorry hits the wire, it raises up at the back of the tractor unit and start of trailer. Camera cuts to a different angle and it raises up again.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Hobbs asks where Shaw is at the very start, the distance between the 2 men changes instantly.

Continuity mistake: At the start when we see the Jeep approaching the blockade on the bridge, the position of the 4 men change instantly. Note the white line.

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

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

Other mistake: The Underground fight was apparently filmed in Aldwych Tube station, which is unused. When Letty jumps on the train the underground sign has "ras" at the end, probably saying "St. Pancras." When Hobbs heads to the CCTV office, he claims they got attacked in Waterloo Station.

Suggested correction: Letty and Rome and Han are at 2 differant stations. Watch closely and you see Roman and Han run past a sign saying Waterloo.

Revealing mistake: During the end plane chase the two land rovers drive over the open ramp - at this point you can see the support wheels under the ramp. It would not have this feature as they would only be used when the plane is stationary.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Hobbs says "I'll sort your transport out for Spain" it cuts to a Hercules transport plane. We can tell that the rear ramp is down as we can see the support struts, but the inside scene shows none of the effects of having the ramp down while flying.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the fight on the bonnet of the land rover the bullet holes in the windscreen appear and disappear between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Brian and Mia are in the red Alfa on the runway, Vegh comes after them in one of the flip cars. Brian turns the car around to trick her into crashing into the barriers but after the turn the red Alfa is still going towards the plane so to speak, and Vegh is going in the opposite direction. When she crashes, the red Alfa is suddenly going the other way, away from the plane.

Suggested correction: As part of Brian's trick, he puts the Alfa in reverse, allowing him to fly over Vegh's flip car without actually flipping. Since the car is in reverse gear, it is still moving in the same direction, it is just physically facing the other way.

Revealing mistake: When we see Rome's car being pushed by the tank there is a shot from inside Rome's car looking forward. In this shot you can see tyre marks from previous takes on the road.

Revealing mistake: When we see Shaw climb into the tank we see a shot of him outside the tank that's on the back of a lorry travelling at speed. In this shot, the background is not moving.

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.

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.

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

Factual error: After Letty and Riley fall down the stairs in the tube station, Letty jumps onto an unpainted train that has a Northern Line map inside. The London Underground hadn't had an unpainted train in service for almost ten years when the movie was released, and the train is also the wrong style for the Northern Line.

Continuity mistake: When the bridge gets blown during the tank chase Dom and Brian are next to each other. In the next shot there's a big gap - Dom makes it under the bridge and Brian is forced into the jump.

Add time

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

Suggested correction: When the debris from the bridge begins to fall onto the road below, Dom applies more power to the gas pedal of his car and narrowly avoids the debris. Brian is not shown speeding up his car and is forced to make a jump.

Continuity mistake: When Gisele falls from the car shooting in slow motion, the drop is greater than the height shown in the next shot.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Shaw parks his Mercedes on the left side of the plane facing forward. Dom then comes in and parks his Charger on the right of the Mercedes, also facing forwards. But when Shaw wants to drive out of there, the Mercedes is now facing backwards, and it and the Charger have switched sides. Now the cars did move around a little when the plane was leaning, but this does not explain how the Charger would have moved "uphill".
