Dominic Toretto is a pretty cool guy, I mean he’s not exactly a squeaky clean good guy but you would much rather he was on your side than against you, the iconic ’70 Dodge Charger previously Dominic’s dad’s car has been used countless times to win races and defeat baddies.
Easily the most recognisable car in the Fast and Furious movie series, this jet-black car appears in most of the films, that’s now nine in total making it the most successful franchise in Universal Studios history. The Dodge Charger nameplate has been used on three different platforms, the most famous Chargers were the classic ‘68 through ‘70 versions with the Chrysler B-body, these cars sell for thousands of dollars today.
Dominic’s ‘70 Charger has the powerful HEMI engine, which is a classic on its own, this was a special engine option in 1970, and is very rare today, it helped Dodge win many stockcar races and championships.
Now, unless you have a lot of time and money on your hands the chances of owning a full size version of this powerful car are slim to none, but as they say, size isn’t everything so there is always this 1/25 scale model version from Revell.
