Fans of 2001’s The Fast and the Furious could never have dreamed that two decades later, the tenth installment of the franchise would be racing into theaters. You can watch Fast and Furious 10 (which the studio also calls Fast X because Fast 10 sounds like what Vin Diesel does to his seatbelt) on May 19th. The film’s second trailer gave us a glimpse at Roman’s gold-platted Lamborghini Gallardo (which Han calls “Fort Knox on Wheels”), John Cena’s tactical Chevy El Camino (the cannon car), and several fan-favorite vehicles from previous films.

In what may be Fast and Furious 10’s opening scene, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew convoy through Rome. The bad guy, Dante (Jason Momoa) has set a trap for them, and soon they must battle a huge, rolling bomb that is hurtling toward the Vatican. Just another day at the office, I guess.

In this sequence, Dom drives a manual version of the latest Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye with a factory widebody kit. Han (Sung Kang) from Tokyo Drift cruises in an orange 1971 Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce. Someone (possibly Letty/Michelle Rodriguez) is riding a motorcycle.

Dante is in pursuit on a Harley-Davidson prototype or custom. This fits with the long-standing Fast and Furious tradition of Universal Studios pairing actors with brands they are already ambassadors for.

But the scene-stealing car is a 2003 Lamborghini Gallardo. Why a twenty-year-old entry-level Lambo? Because this is an extraordinary example that someone has gold-plated. It echoes the bright-orange Lamborghini that made Roman an easy target for Cipher’s (Charlize Theron) torpedos back in Fate of the Furious. It seems Roman is testing his plot armor even more aggressively in this movie.

The Gallardo also happens to be the final model Lamborghini offered with a manual transmission. Considering Fast and Furious cars are known for using at least 12 gears in a 1/4-mile drag race, we can fully expect Roman’s Lambo to be a true three-pedal.

John Cena’s 1967 El Camino makes him the world’s coolest uncle

There’s another very unique Fast and Furious 10 car on display in the latest trailer: Jakob Toretto’s (John Cena) 1967 Chevy El Camino “cannon car.” Why does he call it a cannon car? Because it has several huge cannons strapped to its body which he lights off before high-fiving Brian Marcos Toretto (Leo Abelo Perry).

[F9 Spoiler alert…kinda] John Cena plays the franchise’s latest bad-guy-turned-good-guy. Jakob is Dom and Mia Toretto’s (Jordana Brewster) long-lost brother. After losing a race and being shunned by the family, he becomes one of the world’s best international spies/assassins/drivers and then pops up several decades later to take revenge on his brother. I guess that technically makes him a good-guy-turned-bad-guy-turned-good-guy.

But in Fast and Furious 10, he has transformed into the world’s coolest uncle. When Dante kidnaps little Brian (boo!) Jakob rolls to the rescue in his El Camino cannon car.

Though Jakob was a die-hard Mustang fan in F9, this classic car fits well into what appears to be the film’s final set piece. This sequence also features Dante’s 1966 Chevrolet El Camino, a 1966 Ford Fairlane, and Dom’s beloved (and indestructible) 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. But the Charger from the final race of 2001’s The Fast and the Furious is far from the only fan-favorite returning from a previous film.

If the Chevy El Camino is too mainstream, check out the GMC Caballero.

Fast and Furious 10’s cars are Easter eggs for previous films

The picture car team working on Fast and Furious 10 has packed the movie with Easter eggs harkening back to much of the long-running franchise. Yes, there’s even a Tokyo Drift shoutout: the orange and black paint job on Han’s Alfa Romeo.

Dom usually favors Dodge muscle cars. So why does he have a primer gray 1970 Chevelle SS parked in his LA garage in Fast X? It’s the car he drove through Mexico for much of the fourth film: Fast & Furious.

And why did the film crew hunt down two black 2010 Dodge Charger SRT-8s? For a flashback scene revealing Dante has been at odds with Dom’s crew since they pulled a safe through the streets of Rio in Fast 5. This movie even features Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) sliding behind the wheel of a 2019 McLaren Senna, reminiscent of the standalone Hobbs & Shaw.
