'Fast & Furious' Franchise Damage Would Cost $514 Million, Expert Estimates

To actually be that fast and furious would come at a price.

According to insurance company InsuretheGap.com, the damage done onscreen through the stunts of the Universal street-racing franchise would total more than $514 million.

Surprisingly, it's the protagonist characters who do most of the damage throughout the films, but villain Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham) is responsible for the most damage per character.

Furious 7 featured the most serious damage to buildings and cars onscreen. It also saw the franchise's most expensive car destroyed so far: a Lykan Hypersport by W Motors, valued at $3.4 million.

The conclusions were derived from analyzing the cost of the total amount of damage to each film's cars and buildings. Classic car consultant Nacho Llacer weighed in on the findings.

But that might all change come April 14, when The Fate of the Furious hits theaters. Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Statham and Kurt Russell, as well as newcomers Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren, are among the cast of F. Gary Gray's installment, which will kick-start a new trilogy.
