The primer grey Chevelle in that movie is the same car as his initial red Chevelle, in the scene before the race he is shown painting the red Chevelle primer grey(not really sure why but sure). He later blows up this car in order to escape with his life.If you really want to get nerdy about the Fast & Furious Chevelle's.. (I'm a big F&F nerd...)
In the movies, the primer gray one was in a race where it did a wheelie at the start of the race, the red one was just shown driving around.
They should be the opposite of above, the gray would have to be the jacked up one to do a wheelie, and the red should be more of the lowered one.
(..and they did put out the gray as more of a mainline one on a F&F card, and they also did the red as a premium F&F lowered.)
The only cars that can really do that are the "fuel" cars at NHRA events. Making around 11,000 horsepower out of 500 cubic inches, with a HEMI of course.Yeah, I remember those scenes now.... and I guess when it comes to the one doing a wheelie, I'm sure that was a one off modified one anyway.
Like someone said online, in the first movie, the iconic scene where the Charger does a burnout and a wheelie?... they say it would be one or the other, either doing a wheelie because it has a lot of traction, or a burnout because he lost traction, but not both
