Most who like the "Fast and Furious" film franchise hope to own one of the featured cars, but few have the Pokémon-adjacent aspiration to buy them all.
A man named Jorge Acosta does — amassing the world's largest collection of film car replicas from the "Fast and Furious" phenomenon. As of writing he owns 24, but he plans on buying even more.
World's largest 'Fast and Furious' themed car collection
"My dream was the green Eclipse, so I built one three years ago, and that's it," explained Acosta in a YouTube video on Roads Untraveled. "Everything started from there."
Acosta made his way into the world of "Fast and Furious" replica makers via the franchise's car-wrangler and technical advisor Craig Lieberman.
Acosta learned other owners enjoyed three or even five replica cars — but he wanted more.
"I didn't want to have the largest 'Fast and Furious' car collection in the world on purpose, right?" said Acosta in Roads Untraveled. "But then I started getting excited."
Some body kits cost more than the 'Fast and Furious' cars
Acosta then began to import cars from Japan to sell — to build a fund for buying and tricking-out additional replicas.
But some body kits cost more than the cars themselves, which is why he sometimes runs into what he's dubbed the "Fast and Furious tax" for film-inspired material needs.
Acosta wants 'Fast and Furious' to go to space
As of writing, he wants to grow his film-like collection to 35 cars, with seven to eight cars already in the works, The Drive reports.
"I don't know if I'm going to stop or not," conceded Acosta during the Roads Untraveled video. "I don't know. I don't know."
Predictably, Acosta loves the direction of the "Fast and Furious" film series. He even thinks sending the cast of the franchise to space will draw more moviegoers (or watchers, now) into the car community he's come to love. Suffice to say once a serious film-inspired car collection gets going, the tendency is to take it all the way.
