2 Fast 2 Furious, the sequel to the blockbuster film The Fast and the Furious, gave screen time to a lot of memo- rable machinery while doing some unforgettable (and not exactly legal) things. One such scene had this car, a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, driven by Eric Etebari (playing the role of “Darden”), in a tag team street race against a pair of nitrous-tweaked Mitsubishis. It was a thrilling segment that we’ve watched several times, and the takeaway from here (aside from popcorn bloat) is that GreenLight’s done a great job turning the car out in 1:18. Rolling on American Racing-style five spoke rims and meaty rubber (sans the raised white “BF Goodrich” lettering), the model’s well scaled with good shut lines on its opening doors, hood, and trunk. A moderately detailed 383 V8 has a touch of plumb- ing and sits well between the fenders; opening the doors to the black plastic interior reveals a nicely recreated dash- board and center console, photo-etched seatbelts, and a flocked floor. True, the model is missing the ejector seat featured later in the movie, but it makes up for that with very crisply scaled foil “Challenger” scripts and working hood pins, all wrapped in a neatly decorated box featuring artwork and logos from the film. 2 cool. – Joe Kelly Jr. greenlightcollectibles.com
