The 1997 Mazda RX-7 FD is the real star of “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” and even went on to become an icon of its own because of it. The flashy car gets its unique look from its House of Kolor black and orange color combination and its Veilside Fortune Bodykit. The RX-7 is an exceptional car for drifting with its rotary engine, compact size, and well-balanced chassis.
So, it’s no wonder it is Han Seoul-Oh’s car of choice in a movie about drifting. The protagonist, Sean Boswell, also takes a spin in the vehicle on multiple occasions. But one of the most memorable scenes with the RX-7 is when the two drift around two Japanese women sitting in a stationary car in an attempt to get their phone numbers.
The car, like the character Han, meets an unfortunate end in the movie. During an adrenaline-pumping escape from antagonists Takashi and Morimoto, Han T-bones a vehicle at high speeds. This resulted in an explosion that seemingly killed Han. As “Fast & Furious” fans may already know, this was eventually retconned in the later movies, as Han resurfaces in “F9.” The custom RX-7, however, wasn’t as lucky.
