A 1997 Nissan 240SX (a "watered down" version of Japan's Silvia S14) belonged to Letty Ortiz in The Fast and the Furious. It is unknown what happened to her car after the first movie.


The Fast and the Furious

Letty's 240SX is seen at the beginning of the movie, being the first car of the crew to pull up in front of Toretto's Market & Cafe. That night, Letty drives herself and Mia in her 240SX to a street race, and uses the car to escape when the police arrive.

The car is seen again when Letty, Leon and Vince return from grocery shopping for their barbecue. The car is seen for one last time when Letty uses it during Race Wars against another driver's Mazda RX-7; however, she easily wins when she uses her Nitrous Oxide System against him, as he was racing without it.


  • The car was rented from Helen Jasmine Cho and no copies were made of it as it wasn't going to be a car that would be involved in stunts.
  • For scenes with Michelle Rodriguez in the car, a shell of a different model Nissan car was attached to a mic rig which would tow the shell with Michelle inside.
  • The car was returned to its owner and then sold and its current whereabouts are unknown.
