In the early scenes of the first movie, Dom Toretto’s racing vehicle was a Mazda RX-7, but Diesel immediately chose the brotherhood of muscle route. The action hero claimed that his first vehicles were a convertible ’67 Pontiac and a ’78 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in an YouTube interview with Kjersti Flaa . Even while it’s likely that Diesel has a thing for muscle cars, the renowned Dom Toretto automobile isn’t definitely one of his favorites. That distinction belongs to none other than the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle that Toretto used to flee to Mexico.
Diesel responded that the 1970 Chevelle “was always essential” to him when asked in another YouTube interview with Supercar Blondie which “Fast and Furious” vehicle was his favorite. The Charger still maintains a special place in the actor’s heart, though, as he calls it something with “sentimental significance.” Regarding what happened to the Chevelle after “The Fast and the Furious” ended, it reappeared in the sequels, albeit with various paint jobs; in the fourth movie, Toretto raced one to victory. In “F9,” the Chevelle reappeared during a car chase as well, but this time, it wound up far closer to the actor’s heart.
