The plot for the new chapter has still not been revealed, however, there are new teaser posters which show Manhattan as a background. This gives a hint that the upcoming edition will based out ofNew York, where the F&F saga originated. The crew has also been spotted shooting in Iceland with a host of vehicles which include Lamborghinis, Imprezas, rally cars and even golf karts.

The highlight of the Fast and Furious series has always been the cars. We believe in the new chapter too, there will be plenty of them. The series hit a massive block with the unfortunate death of Paul Walker in November 2013. Following which, his role was retired in Fast and Furious 7. It needs to be seen whether Fast and Furious 8 raises the bar as Vin claims, this will be the best movie you have ever seen.
