Since 2001, the Fast and Furious franchise has brought us dozens of drool-worthy custom cars such as Dom’s Charger, numerous iterations of the Nissan Skyline GT-R, a bright orange Toyota Supra and Han’s Veilside Mazda RX-7. One man in Edmonton, Alberta, quite likes these cars — so much so, that he has 24 replicas from the film franchise.

Jorge Acosta, who owns the collection you can see above, has not just the three cars stated above, but also the original Mitsubishi Eclipse, Spyder, and Evo, as well as a Nissan 350Z, a new-gen Toyota Supra, a Volkswagen Jetta, a Honda S2000, a Subaru WRX STI, and even the Ford F-150 SVT Lightning.

Speaking to Roads Untraveled, Acosta said, “My dream was the green Eclipse, so I built one three years ago, and that’s it… Everything started from there.” He added, “I didn’t want to have the largest Fast and Furious car collection in the world on purpose, right? But then I started getting excited.”

His obsession started after he saw the very first race and his passion grew as he looked into the world of Fast and Furious cars, finding the original films’ technical advisor and source Craig Lieberman.

Acosta is already looking to expand the collection to 35 cars. For JDM models, the collector typically imports them from Japan to sell and then fund his replicas, which can feature body kits that sometimes cost more than the car alone.

Take a look at Jorge Acosta’s Fast and Furious car collection in the video above.
