Unless you’ve been living underneath a rock for the past decade and a half, you’ll undoubtedly have heard about the Fast and Furious movies. The original 2001 blockbuster has since spawned numerous sequels with the seventh – Furious 7 – slated to hit theaters on April 3. 
To celebrate the monumental seventh iteration, we’ve handpicked a few quite fast and equally furious cars from the throngs of eBay. These cars were absolutely, not-in-any-way involved in the movies, but it wouldn’t take much imagination to see Brian O’Conner or Dominic Toretto get behind the wheel of one of these street machines. Enjoy.

2005 Saleen Ford Focus S121 N20

‘Saleen’ is a legendary name among the Mustang tuner crowd, in fact F&F star Paul Walker was a huge fan of the cars, owning many. This Saleen Ford Focus is certainly a different breed, but nonetheless interesting. Denoted as an ‘N20′, the Saleen S121 Focus packed a nitrous kit, boosting power up to 225 horsepower. The seller notes that this Focus is the 79th of the build series.

1973 Dodge Challenger ‘Six Pack’

Trailers for Furious 7 show Letty driving a new Dodge Challenger. It looks good, but this ’73 with a built motor and a trio of two-barrel carburetors looks like the business. Inside, there’s some very ’70s wood veneer and a pistol grip, and outside a custom paint job that might have you rethink a street race.

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

In a ranking of the greatest Fast & Furious cars, the Mitsubishi Evo slots somewhere behind the Charger, Supra, and Nissan Skyline. This Evo however makes us think otherwise; perhaps you’ve seen it before. This ’08 Evo sports a UK-market FQ400 body kit and was featured on the cover of modified magazine. It’s quite the full-page spread.

1995 Acura NSX-R GT Spoon Conversion

In order to homologate entry into the Japanese Super GT series, Honda needed to build at least five production versions of its new NSX race car. They did – the NSX-R GT – and they’ve each been tucked away in collections ever since. Renowned Honda tuner Spoon created kits to turn normal NSX cars into NSX-R GTS… and this is one such fully-equipped car. Yes, roof scoop.

1968 Ford Mustang ‘Villain’ by CR Supercars


Last year, our own Jonathon Klein got to drive this car, an experience he isn’t likely to forget for a long, long time. The Mustang ‘Villain’ debuted at SEMA and packs a modern Ford Coyote V8, pumping out 450 horsepower and throaty howl. Given that it’s set up for pro-touring, it can handle a corner or two.

1967 Chevrolet Camaro ‘Ultimate Sixty Seven’


The F&F series has seen its fair share of wildly custom cars, and this 1967 Camaro could easily have graced its silver screens. Another SEMA Show representative, this LS9-powered pony car features some of the interior treatments of a 2013 Camaro, combined in a highly modified ’67 body. It’s stunning to say the least, and frankly very expensive as well.

1993 Mazda RX-7 Touring


If it was good enough for Dominic Toretto, it’s good enough for you. This ’93 RX-7 totes the Touring trim, and unlike most RX-7s you’d find on the Interwebs – it hasn’t been slammed, fender flared, and given spangly decals. In fact, the seller notes the only modifications were to the cooling system and stereo.
