I saw the movie. It was fun. I hated to see another Saleen die on the big Was that Roger's car? So when is the widebody Saleen build?

The exotics and supercars featured in the movie are replicas. Custom cars with a skeletal substructure and composite body.

I figured the actual race scenes the cars were replicas. I noted the odd wheels on the S7 before it went flying off the road. Too bad the Shelby HUD is not real... that looked killer.

You can always tell the movie car replicas, wheels and the wheel offsets are always wrong...
