What year did the first fast and the furious movie come out

The first installment of the Fast & Furious films was released on June 22, 2001 (USA).

It earned $40,089,015 during its opening weekend screened at 2,628 theatres and amassed a total gross of $207,283,925 worldwide.

There are a few cars that stand out in all seven of the 'Fast and Furious' films, many of them happen to be Dodge Chargers.

The two main "hero cars" in the first film were a 1970 Dodge Charger driven by Vin Diesel's character, Dominic Toretto, and a 1995 Toyota Supra driven by the late Paul Walker's character, Brian O'Conner. In the final scene, the '70 Charger crashes into a semi-truck, sending it flying through the air.
