This Insane Flip Car From Fast And Furious 6Attacks And Murders Innocent Vehicles For Fun
A couple weeks ago, I was invited to inspect the few cars that survived the filming of the Citizen Kane of driving-fast-to-fight-crime-or-something movies, Fast and Furious 6. In that post I mentioned there was one car I felt merited its own post, and, true to my word, this is it. That car is the genuinely bonkers Flip Car.
The name Flip Car conjures up many things: a car designed to flip itself like a motorized pancake, funnyman Flip Wilson’s garishly customized Rolls-styled golf cart, or maybe a car known for its flippant attitude. This flip car is very different: it’s a mobile weapon, a beastly machine that attacks by flipping other cars over.
When Dennis McCarthy first read the script to the movie and saw what the vehicle needed to achieve, he pictured something built around a full-sized Freightliner cab, because it takes a hell of a lot of force to completely flip over another moving vehicle. But the producers demanded something small, something sleek and nimble, physics be damned.
