The R's Tuning R35 GT-R Featured in Fast and Furious 6

Fast and Furious 6 Nissan GT-R with Ben Sopra bodykit from R's Tuning
The Fast and Furious series. Say what you want about it, for me personally its been a pretty fun ride. From 1,2,3,and 4, I had a little bit of involvement with some vehicles in the films(Big Bird, Blackbird, RB Mustang,Technical Advisor for the insert unit).  Fast and Furious 6 is set to release May 24th, and one of the cars that is featured in the film, is the Ben Sopra bodykitted, Switzer P800, R's Tuning R35.  SP Engineering recently put up a blog post on the car, that was picked up by blogs around the world. I think the car only had a pretty minor role in the film, but "featured" is a good word.

Remember when this was red?

On October 21, 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported that Universal was considering filming two sequels—Fast Six andFast Sevenback to back with a single story running through both films; both written by Morgan and directed by Lin.[14] On December 20, 2011, Diesel confirmed that Fast Six would be split into two parts, with writing for the two films occurring simultaneously. On the decision, Diesel said:[15]
We have to pay off this story, we have to service all of these character relationships, and when we started mapping all that out it just went beyond 110 pages...The studio said, 'You can't fit all that story in one damn movie!'[15]

Looks like its not just 6, but 7 coming at us too. And remember, the movies are entertainment, not documentary's. If they were documentary's no one would go and see them.
