One of the famous Hollywood movies and thick with nuances of modified and high-speed cars is The Fast and The Furious. The film who starred by the late Paul Walker and Vin Diesel managed to win big profits.
But who would have thought, behind the making of this movie there was a unique story buried by the director, Craig Lieberman. Reporting from Motorauthority.com, Craig admits that he has a very limited budget at that time in making this movie that finally boomed.
The budget provided was only $ 39 million, but the compilation of production costs left only $ 2 million for the procurement of cars from the unit to the modified budget. While 40 cars consisting of Toyota Supra Mk IV, Mazda RX-7 Miata, Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T, Dodge Charger 1970, and many other expensive cars.
Craig Lieberman and the crew ware looking for ways and crazy ideas so they were able to overcome the lack of funds. In the end, they found a way that is a little complicated but amazingly was able to cut quite a lot of costs, namely by way of rent.
Yeah, they rented several cars that have passed the qualifications which used for the action in several scenes. And they call these rental cars with ‘Hero Cars’.
That is it? Certainly not guys. Craig prepared some cheap used cars to be modified like ‘Hero Cars’. Well, the cars that are not modified maximally will later become stuntman cars from ‘Hero Cars’.
