It was back in July that we learned a widebody 1966 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe was going to be one of the featured cars in the 8th “Fast and Furious” movie and that it would be driven by Michelle Rodriguez character, Letty Ortiz.
On Sunday evening just before the Dallas Cowboys/NY Giants football game, the new movie, now titled “The Fate of the Furious”, staged a Times Square takeover and showed the first official trailer from the movie which opens on April 17, 2017
And it’s crazy. So much going on with fast driving cars and explosions that only a Fast and the Furious movie can deliver. In the trailer, Dominic Toretto goes rogue and chaos reigns until we are sure it ends up with one crazy cliffhanger at the end.
But in the meantime, watch out for 1:24 in the trailer where you will see Letty driving the ’66 Corvette:
We grabbed some screen shots for a better look at the car. It’s actually the first of two Corvettes we spotted in the trailer. The other, a C2 Corvette Grand Sport body that looks like a gasser, was parked on a shelf in their headquarters.
Check out our original sighting of the Fast8 ’66 Corvette including a photo where a stunt went wrong and the coupe ended up on its roof.
