Name:

Dominic “Dom” Toretto

Bio:

“You never turn your back on family,” Dom tells his crew before leading them into an explosive new mission for Fast & Furious Crossroads.

No matter the odds, Dom has never quit on anything or anyone. Beginning with the heartbreak of his father’s violent death and his own long stint in prison—from his days of illicit street-racing glory to the heyday of hundred-million-dollar heists—Dom always rises. His code demands it, and his family depends on him.

Still, it’s only behind the wheel of fast-tuned cars that Dom can escape his demons. “For those 10 seconds or less, I’m free,” he told his brother Brian O’Conner as the two men stood beside a midnight-black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T with all its “900 horsepower of pure Detroit muscle.” Once belonging to Dom’s father, now it hauls Dom to the quarter mile in under 10 seconds.

Now that they’ve survived the cyber-terrorist known as Cipher, Dom, Letty and their crew celebrate the safe return of Dom’s infant son in Manhattan. It’s here where the head of our family is approached by Mr. Nobody and shown a top-secret file concerning the boss of an international crime syndicate—a mastermind who has eluded capture for decades. Dom’s mission: bring down this criminal magnate before it all goes sideways.

As Tej’s sister-in-arms, Vienna, and her best friend Cam enter deadly territory in Spain and become embroiled in Mr. Nobody’s latest assignment, they’ll come to rely on Dom and Letty’s protection in order to survive. To Dom, if you’re family to my brother, you’re forever part of our crew.

The dark 1970 Dodge Charger R/T with its Chrysler HEMI® V8, electronic fuel injection, and 9-71 Roots-style blower once belonged to Dom’s father. Now it is a vital piece of Dom’s life.

Much like Dom himself, the Dodge Charger has become a legend despite all the reasons why it should never have been one. Back in the day, street racing in L.A. was all about tricked-out Bosozoku-style Japanese imports driven by racers who wouldn’t be caught dead in an American muscle car. From Brian’s Mitsubishi Eclipse RS and rescued Toyota Supra to Letty’s Nissan 240SX and Mia’s Acura Integra Type R, it was all street-to-street Japanese imports.

Yet, like Dom, a man who comes from a blue-collar district in Downtown L.A., there was always something special about that black-as-night Dodge Charger R/T.

Dom explained it all to Brian back when the two stood in the Toretto garage with the Dodge Charger’s HEMI® glistening American steel. No one knew then that it was the start of a friendship that would be sealed forever when Dom in a ’68 Dodge Charger R/T and Brian in a ’94 Toyota Supra drifted apart at a crossroads 15 years after they’d pitted Dodge Charger versus Toyota Supra for that epic quarter mile run that ended with the Dodge Charger in a cloud of broken debris.

Eight years later, it was Letty who would rebuild Dom’s wrecked Dodge Charger and bring the family back together again. That Dodge Charger, like Dom, is the steel at the heart of this family.

The Chevrolet “One-Fifty” is a postcard from America dated 1957. With a body shaped by Fisher, the “Sweepsight” windshield, two-tone Chevy tailfins, and Chevy’s small-block OHV V8 283 “Super Turbo-Fire” pushing 283hp, what you have here is nothing less than that ol’ “Chevy feeling”—pretty-much America in chrome-and-technicolor for Chevy’s debut color-TV ads.

Chevy had the Corvette and the Bel Air for its more well-to-do customers, but if you were a blue-collar American looking to add a bow-tie to your life, the Chevy “One-Fifty” was waiting at the dealership, right next to the dude with the brown sack-style flannel suit.

Its working-class roots have long-since made the “One-Fifty” an iconic piece of the American landscape, and given Chevy shifted around 700,000 of them, they’ve been a shoe-in for hot-rodders since forever.

For Dom, the Chevy “One-Fifty” is a home-spun gasser—a purpose-built, stripped-down hot-rod that tags on pieces of the Bel Air, a beam axle to jack-up the ride, and a heavily tuned supercharged engine along with six Holley two-barrel carburetors to push out north of 500 horses of Detroit muscle.

That gives Dom a ride capable of doing the quarter mile in around 11 seconds on its way to 120 mph. Iconic American cool. Remind you of anyone?

“This is a body style I've always been a major fan of,” Dennis McCarthy, the official car coordinator of the Fast & Furious franchise, told Autoblog.com. “This car in black, with 16-inch wide rear tires and a stance that’s as low as we could physically accomplish, gives it a very dark and ominous presence. It's a perfect match for Dom.”

The Chrysler Corporation produced the Plymouth GTX for only five years—between 1967 and 1971—and the “Gentleman’s muscle car” came with either a “440” 7.2 L V8 engine (AKA the “Super Commando” and good for around 375 hp) or the asphalt-chomping HEMI® V8 pushing north of 420 hp. Impressive numbers, but not as impressive as the results: 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds … in 1971!

Given the oil crisis and the era, they sold only a few thousand of the Plymouth GTX models in 1971, and that makes the Plymouth GTX as rare as it is epic.

Dom’s Plymouth GTX in Fast & Furious Crossroads has that same legendary HEMI® V8 but it’s been beefed-up to produce even more American power. How much more? No-one’s saying, but the last time you saw it was out in the wild, on the streets of Manhattan, when the crew harpooned Dom’s Plymouth GTX and tried to stretch him out and hold him.

“He's gotta have 2,000 horsepower in that thing!” is what Hobbs said as he realized there was no holding that Plymouth GTX in place.

“Try 3,000!” suggested Tej.

“Try five,” said Shaw with the rear tires of his ride on fire as they all tried—ineffectively—to hold the Plymouth GTX in place moments before it unleashed all sorts of mayhem.

Serious American muscle, and it’s is waiting for you in Fast & Furious Crossroads.
