During the opening scene of the fourth installment of the franchise, Fast & Furious, the Buick Grand National can be seen tailing a gas truck. As Vin Diesel takes the wheel, co-star Michelle Rodriguez, jumps onto the hood of the GNX, and the mission is underway as she leaps onto the rig. 

Throughout the scene with the GNX and the gas truck, the driving stunts are exactly as outlandish as you’d expect out of the series, and you can see where this stunt car got its damage from. Mainly, the side of the Buick is smashed up to simulate damage from hitting up against the side of the gas truck during one segment of the opening scene. You can see the full appearance of the car here:

It sits in the form it was in when it (with the magic of Hollywood) drove under the flipping gas truck, and is currently up for grabs through Orlando Auto Museum. Since it was used as a stunt car, you’re not going to get much road time in this GNX, unless you have a tow truck on hand. 

The car appears to be still purposed as a stunt car, and the steering wheel is even mounted to the space where the back seat would be. This would be a really cool addition to a movie car collection, or a great conversational piece for the GNX enthusiast.
