In addition to breaking several international records, Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw has cruised back into first place on the international box office charts with a $102 million debut in China. This Labor Day weekend, if you decide to bypass the road trip route and stay local, the franchise’s latest film is in theaters all across the country. And, to celebrate the film’s success, our Caliber Collision team is taking a look behind the curtain at the movie’s top motors.
The McLaren 720S can fly from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, travel a quarter-mile in 10.2 seconds and reach a claimed top speed of 212 mph. In Hobbs & Shaw, the dark blue British supercar is driven by Shaw (Jason Statham) out of secret garages, through the streets and even underneath two opposing semi-trucks. The iconic auto comes in standard, luxury and performance trim levels, and 37 choices of paint. The wheels, tires, brake calipers, seating, steering wheel and even air vents can all be customized. However, all the features and upgrades come with a price. Models begin at $284,745 and have been known to run for up to $750,000.
2020 Jeep Gladiator
When Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) takes Shaw to Samoa, he makes the trip in style. The scene features the new 2020 Jeep Gladiator: the first Jeep pickup since the XJ-based Comanche two-door was discontinued in 1992. The pickup comes in four models—Sport, Sport S, Overland and Rubicon—and starts at $33,545. Like the McLaren, the possibilities for customization are endless. With more than 80 safety and security features, ten paint colors, four top styles and two different wheel options, this Jeep can be tailored to your personal style faster than you can say “furious.”
In the film’s opening scene, Hobbs hops into his brown Ford Bronco: a classic, everyman truck that he can trust with his life. Compared to the rest of the automotive firepower in this movie, the humble Bronco might seem tame, but it’s earned a permanent spot in American car culture after appearing in countless Hollywood classics, including Speed, Charlie’s Angels, The Chase, Ocean’s Eleven and Terminator 2. It’s a testament to this sturdy ride’s durability that it’s featured as Hobbs’ go-to ride, but if you’re looking to pick one up that hasn’t been around the block a few (thousand) times, you’re in luck: the Bronco is coming back in 2020.
1966 Custom Peterbilt Semi Truck
This tough-as-nails semi is made for long hauls on the highway, but in the final minutes of Hobbs & Shaw, it goes off-road, handling dirt roads with ease during a heart-stopping car chase. It probably doesn’t hurt that this particular 1966 model was heavily outfitted just for the flick, with huge tires, turbos jutting out on all sides and barely enough ground clearance to get by. Even with all that, the Hobbs & Shaw crew still managed to perform automotive acrobatics in a semi-truck, with jumps and drift turns galore throughout the movie’s climactic final stretch.
Fortunately, these four autos barely scratch the surface of the film’s stocked garage. You can also spot the 2017 Aston Martin DB11, a 2005 Audi A4 B7, a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and a long list of others. No matter the souped-up ride, if your road trip ever gets too fast and furious, Caliber is here to get you back on top. Every day, our teammates suit up to fulfill our not-so-secret mission—Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life.®
