There's a hundred-thousand streets in this city. You don't need to know the route. You give me a time and a place, I give you a five minute window. Anything happens in that five minutes and I'm yours. No matter what. Anything happens a minute either...
The production used two different Mustang GT's while filming. One, a 2011 model, is equipped with the 5.0L engine. The other is a 2010 model, which looks identical but is equipped with a 4.6L engine. All 2011 and later model Mustangs equip a wide view mini mirror, which can be seen when Driver steals the Mustang before the pawn shop heist. In the chase following the heist, the mirror is a regular full-on driver-side mirror without wide view, last used on the 2010 model.
