Here is a favourite of his.
1994 Toyota Supra
The Toyota Supra that Brian O’Conner drove in the film and later gifted to Dom was certainly an iconic one. The car, with its Lamborghini Diablo Candy Pearl Orange Paint was used for multiple interior and exterior shots throughout the series. It got sold off at a Las Vegas auction for a whopping $550,000.
The car has a turbocharged 3.0-liter 2JZ-GTE inline-six engine with the fourth-generation Supra’s optional four-speed automatic transmission.

Surprise many as it will, there is way more to Vin Diesel than his Fast and Furious persona Dom Toretto. After vandalising a theatre with his friends as a child, he was cast in a play. Therein began his passion for acting, which he pursued through and into his adult life. His first break-out role was in the first Fast and Furious film after which it was a quick climb to fame and glory.
With a net worth of over $220 million, here are some of the exquisite cars in Diesel’s garage.
There are only seven of these in the world and one of them belongs to none other than Vin Diesel. The hypercar is manufactured by the Lebanese supercar setup W Motors. It featured in Fast and Furious 7 and Diesel had to buy it after, at a price of around 3 million euros.
The 2014 Lykan Hypersport comes with a 3.7-litre twin Turbo engine generating a max power of 780 bhp. It clocks a top speed of 245 mph, and can do 0 – 62 mph in less than a mind-blowing 2.8 seconds. It gives a mileage of 5.7 kmpl.
Instead of a touch screen panel, the centre console of the car has a holographic display. The seats come with intricate gold stitching. The HyperSport also allows for jewels and precious metals to be incorporated in its construction. Buyers get to choose between rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds and sapphire to integrate into the headlights.
Its rivals other hypercars in the market such as the Bugatti Veyron and the Koenigsegg Agera R. However, in India, its prices would be an approximated ₹26 crore as of now.
1970 Dodge Charger R/T
Dom Toretto’s signature car. Gifted to Diesel by director of four flicks of the series, Justin Lin.
The Dodge Charger has a naturally aspirated 7.2-litre 440 ‘Magnum’ V8 petrol engine. Moreover, it is mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox.

The car comes with rear wheel drive. In addition, the Daytona’s dimensions happen to be 5296 mm in length, 1946 mm in width, and1346 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2972 mm. The car is a 5 seater fixed head coupe with two doors. The Daytona remained in production through the years 1968 to 1970.
