Le auto di Fast & Furious 4
Cosa c'č realmente sotto il cofano delle Stars




I'm on my way to Hollywood for a photo shoot, and in tow is the very '08 Subaru STI that's being hailed as the "Halo Car" of the upcoming Fast and Furious film. And judging by the barrage of envious looks my cargo and I are getting from passers-by... it's a pretty big deal. Like a lot of you, I was excited for the original The Fast and The Furious film's debut in '01. I'll admit it. Attention was being given to a subculture that I was a part of, and the on-screen glamour of SoCal's import scene came across as a dream lifestyle for any northern East Coast native. A dream that, sadly, was shot down after 120 minutes of seven-speed Eclipses, flammable NOS, MoTeC Systems exhausts, 10-second drag races that last 1:20... and titanium valve springs. Fast forward a few years, to when the second movie dropped, and... on second thought, don't--it's not worth the ink. I was excited for the original The Fast and The Furious film's debut in '01.

Upon the release of the third installment, Tokyo Drift, we saw more than a few wrongs righted. Sure, it was a bit fantastic, but no more than could be expected of any mainstream action flick. Real drift cars with real sound bites were used, technical jargon was more accurate, and portrayal of a more diverse--gasp, Asian--import community all made it a refreshing break from the previous two installments. Once the Fourth movie's trailer hit, however: heavy domestic involvement, vinyl-covered imports, truck-jacking antics by the original cast... "Here we go again," I thought.

And then Carter managed to get a hold of an official script and casting-call pictures of the film's cars. What we saw was more "action/car movie" than botched "import scene movie", and the imports--what few of them there were--appeared far cleaner than anything yet; two welcomed changes, to those of us whose tastes still sour from the first two films. Tokyo Drift director Justin Lin was back, as was Paul Walker--now a real-life, die-hard import enthusiast. Would the fourth time be the charm? Will the world really see an accurate representation of our scene and what our cars are like? Breaking it down in his signature pragmatic point of view, Carter only offered, "Who knows. But at least we can show the world what their cars are really like."
