Built and owned by Keith Imoto, Dom's RX7 was modified a bit from Keith's original design. The car was originally gray and had a roll cage. The cage was removed because Vin could hardly fit in the car. We built several clones of this car and the clones were changed for their new role in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

Although the movie depicts a crazy audio system, those shots were taken from another car. This RX7 had the factory sound system as the owner was more about keeping the car lightweight.
A magazine article claimed 493hp (500ps) back in 2002. Since most magazines lie to sell magazines, we have to look at real world data with similar mods. Based on these specs though, the more likely numbers are about 330 RWHP at 15psi.
280 Horsepower (as rated by the factory), est. 330 RWHP w/these mods
0-60 = 4.5 seconds (estimated, this car was never hooked up to data collection tools)
¼ mile = est. 13.1 – 13.5 seconds at 94-99 mph (also supported by timeslips and videos of similar cars from that time)
Top speed = 170 mph
