2. Honda Civic 1995

This Honda Civic update was the fifth generation ever since its debut in 1991. It's made of lightweight material like its predecessor and has an aerodynamic body. Upon introduction, the Honda Civic bagged the Car of the Year Japan. This wasn't the first time it happened, however. This is because the brand already bagged the award on its earlier models.

Honda Civic 1995 may have been the perfect ride for a street race movie because of the upgrades. Compared to its older generations, the vehicle's cowl was raised. This made way for better suspension. The ride was also smoother even though the tweaks compromised the crisp handling.

The Dodge version used in the first Fast and the Furious movie was a mid-sized automobile. The company mass-produced it from 1966 to 1978. The design was based on another vehicle called the Chrysler B platform.

The Dodge Charger is one of the most iconic vehicles when it comes to the street racing community. This is due to its unique design and aggressive performance if driven correctly. The Dodge Charger lineup remains as one of the most coveted muscle cars to this day.

5. Toyota Supra

The Toyota Supra is a grand tourer. This is also classified as a sports car. The vehicle’s design is based largely on the Toyota Celica’s design. The only difference is that the Supra is wider and longer than Celica. A comic mistake is when the Supra would be mistaken as the Celica and vice versa. Asides from the Fast and the Furious movie, the Toyota Supra also appeared in other media like video games, music videos, and even TV shows.
