Vin Diesel’s garage is packed with cars even Dom Toretto would be jealous of.
To all the fans of the Fast & Furious franchise, Mark “Vin Diesel” Sinclair needs no introduction. The renowned actor, filmmaker, and producer has been on TV since the early 90s and has amassed a wealth of over $225 million. Vin Diesel is best known for his role as Dominic Toretto in the FnF franchise, in which he performed several breathtaking car stunts.
But his love for cars isn’t just on-screen. Off-screen Vin Diesel has a thing for American muscle cars, JDM, and hypercars. Diesel’s car collection will grab the attention of any automotive enthusiast, collector, or connoisseur. Without further ado, here’s a selection of the most insane cars in Vin Diesel’s garage.
10. 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Grand Sport
Vin Diesel has a first-generation Corvette Stingray Grand Sport, which is a rare gem to collectors. Vin Diesel’s 1963 Sting Ray Grand Sport is believed to be one of only 199 ever made and goes for roughly $100,000 at auction houses. As a car meant for the racetrack, it’s no surprise that Vin Diesel got himself a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray, which was featured on Fast Five.

The 1963 Sting Ray Grand Sport is built with a front anti-roll bar, large-diameter shocks, and a vacuum brake booster. Chevrolet mounted a 3.2-liter V8 engine on the Sting Ray, and it delivers 300 hp and tops out at 142 mph.
9. 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona
Following the poor performance of the 1968 Dodge Charger 500 at NASCAR races, the limited-edition 1969 Daytona was introduced, and it won the Talladega 500 race in the fall of that year. Vin Diesel owns the second-generation Dodge Charger Daytona, which is estimated to cost roughly $90,000.
Vin Diesel’s 1969 Daytona was built on the Chrysler B platform and features a 7.0-liter HEMI V8 engine that makes 390 hp. Only about 503 Daytonas were built, so it’s a highly sought-after muscle car among collectors.
8. 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle
You can’t discuss the “best muscle cars of the 70s”, and not mention the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. When General Motors lifted the ban on mounting engines bigger than 400ci in midsize vehicles in 1970, Chevrolet seized the opportunity to mount a 7.4-liter (400ci) V8 engine on the 1970 Chevelle.
The engine of the Chevelle pumps out 360 horses, so we understand what drew Vin Diesel to the vehicle. This muscle car can do 60-mph in 6.0 seconds and reach a quarter-mile in 13.7 seconds.
71970 Dodge Charger Tantrum
The first thing that you notice about the 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum is its beauty. The all-new front-end bodywork of the 1970 Tantrum is rendered in carbon fiber. The glossy black finish grabs your attention from a mile away. Vin Diesel actually got the 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum as a gift from the Fast & Furious crew to mark his 52nd birthday.

The Fast & Furious cast members were very thoughtful in their gift choice because there’s no doubt that Vin Diesel would love a muscle car with 1,650 horses. The 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum gets its power from a 9.0-liter Mercury Racing twin-turbo V8 boat engine, and it’s worth over $700,000.
6. 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 “F-Bomb”
If you are familiar with the super rare 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z28, then it’s most likely that you saw it in the Fast & Furious franchise driven by Vin Diesel’s character Dominic Toretto. Well, the F-Bomb Camaro featured in the movie is actually a replica built by Hot Rod Magazine’s David Freiburger.
While the Fast & Furious F-Bomb offers a 300-hp engine, Vin Diesel’s real 5.7-liter twin-turbo V8 engine makes over 1,500 horses
5. 1974 Plymouth Barracuda

Towards the end of the 60s, Plymouth knew that it had to redesign the Barracuda in order to catch up with other muscle cars of that era. This was how the third-generation Plymouth Barracuda was born in 1970, and it was built on Chrysler’s E-body platform.

By 1974, the Plymouth Barracuda was pumping out over 245 hp from a 5.9-liter engine. To give the Barracuda an attention-grabbing look, the wheelbase was truncated and flattened to be just about the same size as the Chevrolet Chevelle SS. Vin Diesel’s 1974 Plymouth Barracuda is estimated to be around $70,000.
4. 1993 Mazda RX7
Vin Diesel owns a 1993 Mazda RX7 that’s one of the best sports cars of the 90s. The sports car won the 1993 Import Car of the Year award put together by Motor Trend, and Vin Diesel got to take it for a spin on the set of The Fast and the Furious.
With the performance, handling, and look of the 1993 Mazda RX7, it’s not a shock that Vin Diesel spent over $40,000 on the Japanese sports car. A 1.3-liter twin-turbo engine was mounted on the Mazda RX7, and it makes up to 255 hp.
3. 1994 Toyota Supra
Vin Diesel’s 1994 Toyota Supra cannot go unnoticed, even at the dead of night. But what’s even more noticeable to a performance freak is the 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that blasts out 320 hp.
This Toyota Supra is steady, agile, and easy to handle, just like the Nissan 300 ZX, and Dodge Stealth. It hits 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and tops out at 160 mph. Some auction houses offer the 1994 Toyota Supra for sale at $173,000, and the Fast and Furious franchise had a reasonable influence on the sales figures of the Supra.
2. 2010 BMW E60 M5
Apart from his American muscle car collection, Vin Diesel gets a kick out of German cars like the 2010 BMW E60 M5. BMW held nothing back in building the four-door sedan. It is one of the first passenger cars to come with a V120 petrol engine that puts out over 500 hp.
Via Cars & Bids
The E60 M5 climbs to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and tops out at 155 mph. At some point, the E60 M5 was one of the fastest sedans in the market and was valued at $86,000.
1. 2014 Lykan Hypersport
When you have a need for speed, the only reason why you shouldn’t have a Lykan HyperSport is if you can’t afford it. Vin Diesel’s 2014 Lykan HyperSport is one of only 7 in the world, and it’s worth over $3.4 million. This supercar was featured in Furious 7, although it wasn’t driven by Vin Diesel.

Buyers get to choose which jewels—diamonds, sapphires, and rubies—are embedded in the headlights. The Lykan HyperSport features a 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six-cylinder engine that cranks out 780 hp and tops out at 245 mph.
