One of the most anticipated films in 2019 is the thrilling, action-packed ‘Hobbs and Shaw’, which is a spin-off of the popular Fast and Furious franchise. No doubt, the film did meet people’s expectations and we are really excited to tell you about the scintillating cars that were used in the film.
A lot of popular actors featured in this blockbuster movie, featuring the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Idris Elba, Jason Statham and several others. The film made its debut on 2nd of August and has been a huge success, showing across cinemas worldwide. Here on Naijauto are 8 of the best cars in Hobbs and Shaw you can’t miss if you truly watched the movie.
1. 1981 Ford Bronco
This model is one of the very first cars you would see in the movie. It was driven by the massively-looking Dwayne Johnson, who played the role of Luke Hobbs in the film. This Ford Bronco is of the third generation, which was succeeded by Ford Expedition after the relaese of the fourth generation model. It was categorized under the SUV model line produced and marketed by the iconic Ford (1965-1996).

2. McLaren 720S
This McLaren720S was earlier showcased at the premier of this film earlier this year by Jason Statham. The dark blue model was used in one of the high chase scenes in the movie. A lot of crazy road moves were performed by Jason Statham, who was behind the wheel while trying to escape from Idris Elba, in the street of Glasgow.

The most surprising moment was when the big guy, Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ was able to fit into the car alongside Statham and Vanessa Kirby. Not the spacious car you would think of but it is obviously a speed demon. With a top speed of 212 mph, the McLaren 720S can accelerate from a standstill of zero to 60 mph in a remarkable 2.7 secs.
It comes fitted with an impressive 3,994cc V-8 4.0-liter gasoline engine with seven-speed Reverse Seamless Shift dual-clutch Gearbox and twin electrically-actuated Twin Scroll turbocharger. Its engine generates an output of 710 horsepower and 568 pound feet of torque.

3. Mini Cooper
The Mini Cooper might look small to the eyes but it sure does its job quite well. It is unarguably not the type of car you would want to take on a racing quest. It made a cameo appearance among other incredible models in the garage. The sub-compact comes fitted with 2 engines – 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with generative output of 228 horsepower and a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine with an output of 134 horsepower.
The mini Cooper, a product of BMW, offers 4-wheel drive with an option of either manual or automatic transmission.

4. Range Rover Series III (L322)
These models were used at the latter part of the movie, in a bid to prevent the two protagonists – Luke Hobbs and Hattie Shaw from escaping from Eteon Headquarters. Asides its high road performance, the Range Rover Series III is quite an excellent off-roader. It comes equipped with V6 3.0-liter engine with a generative output of 254 horsepower and 443 pound feet of torque.

5. Rock Crawler
This intimidating beast is a custom-made version of the potent land Rover Defender 110. It was one of the breathtaking models that were earlier displayed at the premiere of the movie. This tough beast was seen in one of the heart wrecking and high chase scenes in the movie. As a result of its evolvement during the course of filming, it was fitted with gear that was previously used in one of the Fast and Furious movies.
It offers a remarkable 500 horsepower and was perfectly used by Jason in the course of the film.

6. MAN KAT1
Mere looking at this road monster would give you chill. Not surprising when we learnt that this model was created solely for German army. It was developed by MAN SE and it is really a powerful off-road truck. A lot of crushing and out-of-the-world maneuvers was done with this machine here in the movie.
Its first model was built in 1976 with the intention to use it as a logistic vehicle for conveying loads across difficult terrain. Thankfully, it helped them escape from the hellish Eteon headquarters.

7. 2020 Jeep Gladiator JT
Pictured with Deckard Shaw and Hattie Shaw in the movie, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is one of the most powerful cars out there for any altitude. With its tough look, it is a perfect candidate for any kind of road job. Its rugged look doesn’t take away its beauty as it appears very elegant. It comes equipped with V-6 3.6-liter engine with an output of 285 horsepower and 260 pound feet of torque. It comes fitted with 6-speed manual transmission (standard) and 8-speed automatic transmission (optional).

8. 1935 Ford Truck RatRod
The featuring of this stylish and tough looking classic ride in Hobbs and Shaw is an indication of a successful year for the automaker – Ford. The particular model used was redesigned for the movie. Although the ride might look old in the film, it was a deliberate attempt to give it that appearance of a long used car. The components used in assembling it are very much new.
