Just saw the movie tonight, and there is a stock BLack Raven Cts-v in one of the scenes. It's not racing but it's definitely a V2, that the supposed Baraga arrives in when their is supposed to be a trade off of the money for the product. JUST THOUGHT I'D LET EVERYONE KNOW. Other than that pretty cool movie, i just wished they would've shown Vin Diesel's escape at the end

Honestly, I know the STS-V and new CTS-V look similar but they're not the same, people!!!

Gawd...my brain actually hurts when I watch Paul Walker act.
Agree.

How many times did he say "brah" or "cuz" in this movie? In F&F2, he said them so many times I was almost violently ill from watching the movie. The only movie in the franchise I even came close to liking was F&F1, and they left so much on the cutting room floor on that one that they killed the plot. I am waiting for this one to go on DVD or Netflix download before I watch it.

OTOH, Paul Walker CAN drive.
Sorry, can't embed video, so here's the thread where the video is.

I'm 0.3% more sure that it's a CTS-V ;)

The bottom grille was not big enough to be a CTS-V, and the headlights didn't have the neon tubes that run up the side.

And if you want more close-up proof, look at the rear door when the old guy gets out. The CTS-V doesn't have metal around the window when the door is open; only the chrome trim. The car in the movie has metal around the window. It's a STS-V.

Look:
See the body color metal around the window is part of the door?


Now look at the CTS-V. There's no body color metal that's part of the door, only a chrome surround.

Well i cant go back and look at it again now, but actually the first thing i noticed was the neon tubes that run up the side of the headlights. I then noticed the size of the grill and that it was a 09v. So im not sure you've given me the proof i needed. I still believe it was an 09v. BUT AS MORE PEOPLE GO AND SEE THE MOVIE IM SURE WE WILL GET THE TRUE ANSWER AND IF NOT I GUESS WE'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT ON DVD. BUT SOMEONE WILL GET A SNAPSHOT OF IT SOMEHOW AND THE TRUTH SHALL BE TOLDD.

Just to clear everything up, that's my car in the movie. I rented my 06 STS-V to Fast and the Furious last year. It was supposed to be in the scene at the shipping container yard. I wasn't sure it would make the movie but it looks like it did.
Thanks for finding it.

Even with low expectations, that was a shitty movie. Gawd...my brain actually hurts when I watch Paul Walker act.
None of them are going to win any Oscars, but the movie was very entertaining (which I am pretty sure is the point). The movie actually made almost $75M this weekend, so it is my understanding that there will likely be a part five. Anyway, how bad could the movie be with a quote like "Muscle beats import every time" (or something like that).

My friend was in charge of finding cars for the movie and all the product placement. I took my car to the show and tell and got to see the F-bomb camaro (hot rod's twin turbo'd camaro, Big red (69 road race camaro), the 1st new evo in LA, and countless ugly japanese rocket ships. They called me a month later and used it for a weekend.
It sounds awesome but anyone that rents their car needs to know it will get it damaged. They ripped my center consule in three places pretty bad, curbed a rim, and it got a couple new scratches. They will normally pay to fix stuff but it's a real hassle fyi.

Sounds like someone was tearing around LA in your car after shooting the scene. That stinks.
