The Fast and Furious Franchise began back in 2001, and who knew back then that 12 years & 10 films later we would be here celebrating the release of Fast X.
The Franchise has engrossed the whole world from its street racing origins to its latest action fuelled adventures. Each film in the Franchise stands apart from one another, yet together they arguably form the best collection of automotive films ever made.
Is it due to the actors, locations, or storylines………Or is it due to the legendary cars that they race on the streets?

The latest and final installment in the Fast Franchise is due to be the best and biggest film in the saga, bringing together all the crew and celebrating the 10 films.
Who would have thought that 12 years ago when Brian and Dom first met on the streets of L.A. That they would have not only built their crew around the world but also driven around it, stole vaults, drove through buildings, jumped off cliffs, and flown into space…..probably Vin Diesel!
