In 2001, The Fast and the Furious skidded into cinemas and gunned every adrenaline-fueled, testosterone-steeped, speed-freak fantasy within us. Set against a back drop of underground racing, it pushed the car beyond just what it could do and showed us exactly what it could be. More than just modes of transports, they became invaluable tools, weapons of mass destruction, growling, grinding extensions of an owner’s soul and the ultimate path to freedom. And yet, even with two subsequent sequels, this franchise seemed doomed to be a sad one hit wonder. Luckily for gear heads everywhere, it only took 8 years till the Fast & Furious brought back all of the original cast in an effort to reboot the story and kick-off an unprecedented rejuvenation which has already given us three brand new installments and no plan on stopping.
