Dodge Muscle Cars Hit the Silver Screen in Fast and Furious 6

Fast and Furious 6 is hitting theaters soon, and the vehicles in the movie are  the main attraction. Sorry, Vin Diesel. At Glenn Polk Autoplex, we can't wait for it to come out, and a few members of our staff will probably go see it right away. When they do, they'll not only get to see car chases and explosions galore, but also two Dodge vehicles in big roles.

What's even better is besides the Dodge Challenger and Charger making appearances in the film, they were just 9 of nearly 300 vehicles that made it out of shooting without being completely wrecked. That's quite the accomplishment.

Many of the cars used in filming are heavily modified to perform all the crazy stunts. The Challenger added new differentials and a larger e-brake so it could slide sideways and whip around corners like a boss. The Charger also had similar mods, but included a winch on its trunk, so it could pull down a big airplane in a scene.

Both Dodge models are pretty new, so not too much had to be done to improve them, but with others, that's not the case. The man in charge of the vehicles, Dennis McCarthy, scours the states for powerful vehicles that some might think are beyond repair and buys them up. After giving them big facelifts, they are ready for the silver screen, and the carnage that lies ahead.

You can take a closer look at the Challenger and Charger here in the Glenn Polk Autoplex showroom, located at 4330 N Interstate 35 Gainesville, TX 76240. We're happy to provide you with additional details and discuss the many new Dodge options available to you.
