We guess that most of you like “The Fast and the Furious” movies. As fun as they are, we should be glad that the events of the films never took place. The reason is simple: because they would be extraordinarily expensive. One of British websites went through all seven current films and calculated an estimate for the damage to both cars and buildings that ensued in the films. The total was £419,446,914, or $523,222,275 at current exchange rates.
The website also broke down the damage by movie, types of damage, and damage by character. By far the film with the most damage and highest cost was Furious 7. In the film, characters caused enough damage to have cost over $250,000,000. That's roughly half of the damage cost for all seven movies. By contrast, the first five movies all caused less than $25,000,000 worth of damage individually. If you're looking to watch the most car friendly Fast and Furious films, we would recommend the first one, that had the lowest levels of cosmetic, "serious," and "special vehicle" damage. Furious 7 had the most "special vehicle" and "serious" damage to cars, and 2 Fast 2 Furious had the most cosmetic damage.
Interestingly, the franchise's villains have collectively been less costly than the heroes. Their total comes in at $197,482,598, while the heroes rang up $325,709,517 worth of damage. On an individual basis, character Deckard Shaw destroyed a whopping $185,597,144 worth of stuff, which is about 94 percent of the villains' total. The second and third heavy hitters in cost are Dominic Toretto and Luke Hobbs.
