The movie, debuting in 2001, caused quite a few waves in the industry due to it’s authentic stunt driving (fresh lack of the green-screen rubbish of today) and perhaps the most under appreciated car in move history — the 1970 Dodge Charger driven by Diesel himself.
Bob Hartwig, the man who has a tendency to purchase famous, ridiculous and gorgeous movie muscle cars, decided to burn his wallet on the four-wheeled American dream slathered in black paint. And it’s still sounds as grumpy as it did in the film.
How much did he pay for it though? In 2013, one of the cars used in the film was being sold for US$690 000, and note, it was damaged. Consider the pristine example he purchased to cost considerably more.
