Trailers have teased Han back behind the wheels of the bright orange vehicle, reminding us of his Mazda RX-7 from "Tokyo Drift."

The film's production notes mention the orange and black coloring of the Toyota Supra are meant to be "an emotional throwback" to the RX-7 in which Han was "killed."

Helen Mirren has expressed her desire to "be a mad driver" in a "Fast and Furious" movie since 2015 and director Justin Lin finally let her check this one off her bucket list.

Queenie takes Dom for a spin during a moment star Jordana Brewster described to Insider as "epic."

"What's awesome about Helen Mirren is she just made it seem so seamless. So that's also one of my favorite scenes," Brewster told Insider in April.

General Motors built the mid-engine sports car for a few years in the mid '80s. As seen above, the car curiously has some rockets strapped to it.

The car is heavily teased in trailers for the film for a huge action sequence that Insider previewed in May.

It's one of a few Chargers Dom has in "Fast 9," including his rebuilt original 1970 Charger R/T, which sits in his garage at the film's start.

(How does Dom continue rebuilding this car after seemingly destroying it time and time again? We don't really try and think too hard about that.)

According to the film's production notes, a Mustang was the only car choice director Justin Lin had in mind for Jakob. The rivalry between the Charger and Mustang is meant to mirror the fractured relationship and tension between the two brothers.

The vehicle has a supercharged V8, 640-horsepower engine.

The Apollo Intensa Emozione retails for $2.7 million and has a projected top speed of 208 mph. The car is super rare. According to Motor Authority, only 10 of them were built.

Vehicle supervisor Alex King worked with production designer Jan Roelfs to engineer and custom-built two versions of the Armadillo.

"The Armadillo, or as I've always called it, the Mother Trucker, is the biggest on-screen vehicle I've ever seen and certainly that I've ever built," King said in the film's production notes.

"The Armadillo outperformed our expectations and it looks like nothing is going to stop it, and that was the whole point. It's the biggest and toughest thing on the road and it just keeps going. It's like the Hulk on wheels," he added.

We can't say much about it yet, but you'll see the car later in the film as it races through the streets of Edinburgh and Tbilisi.

A Universal Studios rep confirmed to Insider that over $1 million was spent to build the custom mid-engine Charger.

"Dom's 'F9' Charger had to be something that was over-the-top, iconic and different from what we've done in the past," vehicle supervisor Dennis McCarthy says in the film's press notes.

"With its mega-horsepower Dodge Hellcat motor, unique Charger engine location, and combination of old and new technology, the mid-engine Charger satisfies all of these criteria. This Charger is now my all-time favorite 'Fast & Furious' car," McCarthy added.
