You have seen it, if you have watched the movie, is the car that, in the last scene, saves the day. This is why Ford built this pony car, to finish the job properly where other’s failed to achieve. The car featured in the film is, a true american car .. or is it so.
In 2006 Universal studios, the ones who produced the movie, needed specially modified car, to fit their needs for the upcoming film. Particularly they set their eye on the 1967 Ford Mustang, but its V8 engine was not suited for the job, sow they added “some” Japanese tuning parts.
One of these Mustang heart’s was an RB26DETT (RB is the engine code used by Nissan to denote the engine type. 26 means 2.6 litre, D refers to the dual overhead cam setup, E refers to the electronic (multi point) fuel injection, and TT means twin turbo.), taken from a R32 GT-R Skyline.
This engine is used in all high perfomence Japanese car’s. The standard puts out around 280 horsepower, although it is possible, with modification, to get as much as 850-1000hp. The ones that were used in the movie, where tuned to stay around 320-330 horsepower range.
Universal equipped the Ford’s with a Global West suspension pieces and rack and pinion steering in common. And all three had 245/35R19 front and 275/35R19 rear Toyo Proxes T1R tires and Volk Racing Grey GT-7 wheels keeping them off the ground.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is a 2006 American crime action film directed by Justin Lin, produced by Neal H. Moritz and written by Chris Morgan. It takes place between the events of sixth and seventh films. The film stars Lucas Black, Bow Wow, Nathalie Kelley, Brian Tee and Sung Kang.
