Cars of Fast and Furious 6: GoBankingRates Reveals Monthly Auto Loan Payments Would Range from $470 to $45,000 to Own One

Fans can see the latest car eye-candy in action when Fast and Furious 6 debuts May 24th. But to see what these vehicles really cost, www.GoBankingRates.com found the worth of five cars of Fast and Furious and calculated monthly payments for an auto loan on each.

cars of Fast and FuriousEL SEGUNDO, CA, May 17, 2013 – In the 12 years since the original film awed audiences with stunt scenes involving beautiful cars driven by beautiful people, the Fast and Furious franchise has grossed an impressive $700 million in domestic box office sales, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. When it comes to the cars themselves, however, GoBankingRates decided to calculate how much the average consumer could expect to shell out for an auto loan on each of the cars featured in the newest “Fast and Furious.”

The sixth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, “Fast and Furious 6,” hits theaters May 24, and it’s obvious that these films still have widespread appeal. “Most people are there for the cars,” says GoBankingRates expert contributor, Paul Sisolak. “Over the years, we may forget some of the cast members who come and go — but the vehicles remain indelibly imprinted in our memories.”

The current average auto loan size for a new car is estimated to be $26,691, putting monthly car payments at $460, according to Experian Automotive. But, as Sisolak points out, prices for the cars of Fast and Furious can reach well beyond that.

“The cars of Fast and Furious are an impressive marriage of classic muscle with modern performance, and like most movie cars, well beyond our budgets,” Sisolak says. “But out of curiosity, just how much would one of those chrome beauties set us back?”
