Filming of Fast and Furious 9 has already commenced and filming is currently taking place at Tbilisi, Georgia, where some action-packed stunts are taking place.
Unlike the current Hobbs & Shaw film, which is very short on cars, modified or otherwise, FF 9 appears to have some pretty impressive rides. In what is, in all likelihood, a nod to the original that launched a thousand sequels, a handful of orange Toyota Supras were snapped on set.
The latest-generation Supra isn’t available in orange from the factory, and it seems likely that producers of the film opted for such a distinctive paint color to mimic the shade of the 1993 Supra driven by the late Paul Walker in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious.
The cars pictured are free of the wild bodykits of graphics, like Walker’s original ride was, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see the film depicting them with manual transmissions and the obligatory bottles of NOS, whether applied later or in post-production via CGI.
Car and Driver says that at least one other particularly intriguing car was filmed on the set: a black 1970 Dodge Charger. This will inevitably be driven by Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto.
Filming of Fast and Furious 9 first started in the UK and will visit to a number of other countries before it wraps up. The latest installment in the long-running franchise was initially set for release on April 19, 2019, but that date has been pushed back until April 10th, 2020 to make room for the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off.
