Why is it that Vienna gets to make all the decisions? To flee the US, to rebuild their lives in Barcelona, to never street-race again after that catastrophe in Miami—always Vienna making the decisions.
And Cam is over playing the guest star in Vienna’s show.
Still, Cam loves Vienna too much to do anything about it. And more than that, Cam owes Vienna their life.
Vienna and Cam grew up together as neighbors. They had a lot in common back then—schools, cars, racing … a lot in common except for one thing—love. Because where Vienna was raised by parents who treasured and nurtured her, Cam’s life could not have been more different—a life that left them feeling abandoned, alone, and confused …
It was Vienna who’d come to the rescue. Vienna who’d persuaded her own parents to adopt Cam; Vienna who’d welcomed them like a long-lost sibling. And years later, when her parents were no longer around, it was again 22-year-old Vienna Cole to the rescue when she became Cam’s legal guardian.
That had changed everything. Vienna, overwhelmed by sudden responsibility, had quickly morphed from big-fun-sister to mom-in-charge.
And Cam’s been taking orders ever since.
Cam misses those long-lost days of Miami’s wild street-racing scene where they and Vienna had been the star drivers in Suki’s kick-ass race crew. Good times that’d all come to an end one horror-filled night when the illegal street race Vienna had organized had turned to chaos on a dark Miami street glistening the oil and blood of broken cars and lives.
“Cam’s always looking to the future,” Vienna confides to Sebastian one afternoon when they’re alone in her garage, “always finding an angle, hoping for something better. I’m always wishing I could turn back time.” But time’s running out for all of them as they get drawn into a deadly battle with a criminal syndicate in Fast & Furious Crossroads.
The Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32) has long-since been the go-to runner for every street racer this side of the Shuto Expressway.
Back in the early ’90s and still unavailable in the States, the Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32) or in short R32 GT-R, was the Holy Grail of street-racing rides, a car whose performance took on almost mystical proportions. Hardly surprising given its pedigree: A car that was built to win Japan’s premiere Group-A racing series, “Godzilla” entered 29 races and won them all. Then it took a world tour and kept on chewing up anything that came its way.
As impressive as that was, it was out on the streets where the R32 GT-R became a legend with an engine that could be tuned in a shed to thrust out more than 1,000horses.
Success was built around the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system that made a mockery of supercars that tried to keep with “Godzilla” through the twisties. Add in HICAS, Nissan’s smart rotating rear-wheels system, and what you have is a legend of the street-racing scene.

NIO is a Chinese automobile manufacturer that left no one in doubt as to its ambitions as the team that stormed to the inaugural Formula E Drivers Championship in 2015. But as impressive as that was, it didn’t hold a torch to the car they unveiled on the same day the NIO brand was unveiled —the NIO EP9.
Built in an astonishing 18 months, this is one of the world’s fastest cars.
For Cam, that also makes it one of the most desired cars in the world.
Developed alongside its Formula E racing team, the NIO EP9 is an all-electric supercar that features four independent 335.25 hp motors on each wheel. Before you reach for the calculator, that’s 1,341 hp, a carbon fiber body of just 365 kg, and an overall weight of just under 1,800 kg. All this results in 0-100 kmh in 2.7 sec, and multiple record times, including a 6:45.90 around the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Big power, low weight, and all tamed by some serious dark magic—including active suspension, a rear-wing that is adjustable to three positions, and a diffuser that runs the entire length of the car. Magic that amounts to a staggering 2,400 kgs of downforce (more than an F1 car). That’s enough downforce to run upside down in a tunnel.
Just don’t try that on the way home…

A high-tech hybrid built off the same heavy-duty chassis as the old-school sibling Hekili off-roader, but instead of a rust-metal brown pick-up truck, here is a sleek carbon-fibre and lightweight aluminum all-modern design that’s been sculpted for both aero-efficiency and integral strength.
Under the streamlined threads is a high-tech concept off-roader: twin-electric motors running on each rear wheel paired to a gas turbine engine for instant-response AWD …allied to an insane amount of torque.
Inside, the cockpit is decked-out in high-tech gadgetry for one of the world’s most testing environments, and all of it guaranteed to be IP68 waterproof.
Twin shark-fin-wings at the rear give the Uila the ability to get airborne with authority, while the fat Rat tyres allow it to land with minimum fuss and maximum grip.
With just shy of 600 bhp on tap and 0-60 mph in under 5 s, the Uila will do around 250 kms on a single charge from a massive 125 kWh battery pack, and can pull anything under 3,000 pounds with impunity.
To prove the impossible is possible and water and electricity do mix, you can submerge this thing in a metre of water for over 10 minutes. And no, in case you’re wondering, it won’t outrun a submarine …

The history of quarter-mile street racing mirrors the automotive world, drifting from big-block American hot-rod muscle from the ’50s through the ’70s to the screaming-RPM Japanese-turbo imports of the ’90s.
Today, though, if you’re Cam and you’re riding for pink slips, you turn up with silent, instant scorching power in the form of a Jaguar I-PACE. Stock, Jaguar’s new all-electric car shifts to 100 kmh in 4.8 s. That’s the kind of performance you get from instantaneous torque—512 lb-ft of it—along with all-wheel-drive traction and two permanent synchronous electric motors taken from the I‑TYPE Formula E racing car pushing 394 hp.
But Cam’s version isn’t stock. It’s a Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, the star of the world’s first all-electric production-based international race series—the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Championship—that’s been tuned for even more performance.
How much more? Try 750 hp and 0-100 kmh in less than 3 seconds more.
Cam’s all-aluminum silent assassin is faster than you can imagine. But just remember: in an electric car, everyone can hear you scream.
The Wildcat W1 is considered one of the greatest all-round Rally Raid machines you’re likely to take to the back-country. This 4×4 has seen record-making success across 5 continents, and makes the barren deserts and unconquerable landscapes of The Dakar feel like any other humdrum day at the office.
With permanent all-wheel drive, lockable diffs, competition suspension and Chromoly space frame chassis, the W1 is superlight and quicker than most cars you’ll get to street race this side of New Orleans. With a GM-derived LS3 V8 producing more than 550hp, you’re getting to 100kmh in under 4s all the way to a top speed of 250kmh, all in an off-road vehicle! Rapid response over rough terrain in the harshest of environments … the Wildcat W1 ticks all the boxes!
Did we mention the onboard tyre inflation kit and automated hydraulic lifting system…?
The Wildcat W1 hasn’t seen terrain it can’t easily chew-up, and add to that a harpoon firing system, and what you have here is a seriously bad guy not pretending to be anything else.
