At the time of writing, Fast & Furious: Crossroads has a Steam review score of “Mostly Negative.” I don’t know if many people counted on it being a definitive Fast & Furious gaming experience, but if they were, I’m sure that they’re bitterly disappointed. Not even Vin Diesel could save the game. However, not all is lost. Upon seeing the reviews I thought to myself, “why do we need a new Fast & Furious game when we have GTA V?” So, I’ve collected together the best GTA V Fast and Furious mods out there. These should help you create a better Fast & Furious experience, and divert your attention away from that train wreck of a game.
You can’t have a Fast & Furious game without vehicles, so these GTA V Fast and Furious mods are all about horsepower. You can download them individually if you just want to drive around feeling like Paul Walker, or bring them together for a much broader experience.
These mods are possibly the best on this list when it comes to actual vehicles. They pack in some of the most iconic cars from the movies, and are the most authentic reskins that you will find. If realism and accuracy are your thing, then you really don’t need to look anywhere else. The rest of the car mods on this list are pretty great though.
Nissan Skyline R34 Paul Walker Paintjob
Do you fancy the idea of driving the Nissan Skyline R34 that Paul Walker used in Fast & Furious 2? Well you’re in luck. This mod replaces the Comet in GTA V with original textures based on Walker’s car design. Once again, it’s a simple mod, but it works so well. The control you get with the comet suits this mod right down to the ground, so much so that you might forget that it’s a mod.
Toyota Supra GR 90 Fast & Furious 9
Bringing things a bit more up to date, this is the Toyota Supra 90 from Fast & Furious 9. The paint job is based on Han’s, and I think you’ll agree that the mod author has actually done a pretty great job with this one. It’s not really the sort of car you’d drive though. Personally, I’d just use it to pose for photos to post on Twitter or Reddit.
Now we’re power sliding all the way back to the original movie. This mod is based on Leon’s Nissan R33, but it isn’t quite a complete replica. Some of the companies on that original design have since closed or disbanded, so the mod author had to change a few of them out. The skin however, is pretty much perfect.
Staying with The Fast and The Furious for a moment, this is Brian O’Connor’s 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. It actually comes with two versions of the vinyl if you’re feeling a little picky. This mod is definitely one of the higher quality ones, particularly if you’re only looking for mods based on the original movie.
This is the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback from Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift. While it might not be the most memorable movie, this car is definitely one that stands out. It’s pretty much the only one that doesn’t resemble the Nissan 350z. Even if you’re not into cars, this is still a beautiful mod to spice up your driving in GTA V.
Here’s one more from The Fast and The Furious. This is Netty’s Nissan s14. Specifically, this is the vinyl that you see on her car. This car is more of a work of art, and the effort that went into it shows in the final design. This isn’t just a car to race around in, it’s one you can cherish and show off at every opportunity.
The Fast & Furious franchise spans multiple movies, and has a storyline that’s harder to follow than a straight line after 10 beers. However, there are many dedicated fans out there who can tell you everything about every film. That’s why I’ve included the following mods, which add some of the Fast & Furious lore into GTA V.
Aren’t you tired of hearing the same song when you load into GTA V? Well now there’s just no need for it anymore. Change things up, relive The Fast and The Furious, and have the theme song playing while you wait for the game to load.
This mod covers five of the movies; The Fast and The Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, and Furious 7. It has 21 loading screens to replace all those that you usually have to stare at while waiting for the game to load. This is a truly great mod, because GTA V never received additional loading screens.
Toretto’s is staple location from The Fast and The Furious, and now you can have it in your game. Combine this with the right vehicle mods, and you can even stage some of the best scenes from the original movie if you’d like to. This mod might seem a little pointless, but really any Fast & Furious fan will need to have this, as it’s too iconic to leave out.
This mod isn’t the parking structure you know of from Tokyo Drift, but it was inspired by it. There are two versions in the mod, one with lights and one without. Enjoy learning how to drift like a pro or avoid the police in style, as you drift with ease around the corners and sharp turns of this crazy building.
If you’re ready for a mod that completely overhauls your game, this is the one for you. It pretty much transforms all of the vehicles into drift cars, and then challenges you and the NPCs drive them. Naturally, everything is much harder to drive, but you will feel like you’re living in the Fast & Furious movie series. Don’t waste another second driving a car that isn’t pushed to the limit of its drifting capabilities, and download this mod now.
Just for fun
These mods serve little to no purpose, but they’re pretty funny. I wanted to include them just in case you felt that you needed a little more of the Fast & Furious franchise in your life.
I know we’re past this movie, but the mod is still going strong. If you love the franchise, then this will be right up your street. It spreads some colossal ads across the biggest buildings in Los Santos, and gets every citizen excited about the movie that is definitely already old by our standards.
This final mod was created by someone who wanted to recreate the Fast & Furious 8 movie trailer in their game of GTA V. Not only does it add in a colossal, and I mean colossal, submarine that you can drive on, it also allows you to shoot rockets out of your car. If you ignore every other mod, then please don’t ignore this one, as it’s too funny. The best part? This mod works with FiveM, so you can pull together some friends and recreate the movie trailer in GTA Online.
Altogether, these GTA V Fast & Furious mods should provide a satisfying experience relative to the franchise. While this is simply a collection of different mods, it’s sure to play better than Fast & Furious: Crossroads.
