Over 230 Cars Were Destroyed in the Making of 'Furious 7'

230 cars were destroyed in the making of 'Furious 7'

After landing parachute drops, head on collisions, and driving cars through three seperate building, you would assume that all of the cars were digitally created. But, that's not the truth. According to a new report, for all of the cars damaged in the filming of 'Furious 7' - 230 in total - all of the cars were sent to the junk yard. From Comicbook.com:
As a new report shows, for all the cars damaged in the filming of Furious 7—230 in total—almost all were unceremoniously crunched into the world’s most expensive cube of metal scraps. As Furious 7's Richard Jansen revealed, he ordered all of Furious 7's damaged cars to be smashed beyond repair, so that people wouldn’t try to salvage and then potentially harm themselves in them. Of the drawn-and-quartered cars included several black Mercedes Benzes, A Ford Crown Victoria, and a Mitsubishi Montero.
“It was kind of unusual, to see some relatively late-model Mercedes-Benzes, all crunched up and good for nothing,” Jansen told The Wall Street Journal. 'Fast and Furious 6' only wrecked up to 25 cars a day while shooting. So, wrecking havoc is nothing new to the 'Fast and Furious' franchise. What do you think?
