Fear Nothing. Risk Everything. So goes the tagline for Redline, the movie that has been described as The Fast and The Furious for adults exotics. Producer Daniel Sadek is a former real estate investor with a pretty nice personal collection of supercars and exotics. We saw some of them on display at the recent L.A. Auto Show.

Sadek not only put up $26 million of his own money to finance the film, but also used his personal car collection in action sequences, including a crash sequence that claimed the life of one of his very nice Porsche Carrera GTs. While this type of senseless destruction makes us want to take all of his keys away, we understand Mr. Sadek will probably explain it was necessary for the film's authenticity.

Shot in Las Vegas and L.A., the movie revolves around high-stakes underground street racing. We recognized the Ferrari dealership at The Wynn and the old El Toro airbase from the video. Although the acting looks typically passable, the cars alone make this a must see. We've spotted a Ferrari Enzo, Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, Koenigsegg CCR, Ford GT, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster and Mercedes SLR McLaren, among others.

Redline is set for a February 23rd release and stars Eddie Griffin, Nathan Phillips, and the oh-so-hot Nadia Bjorlin. As is the norm nowadays, the movie has its own MySpace page where you can find out its likes and dislikes as well as seeing a few additional images and clips.

There's a small gallery of some of the film cars available by clicking on the image above and one of the film trailers is after the jump.

      car porn lol...needless to say I am going to see it we need more car moives! If the sound is good on JUST one car it will be well worth the 8 bucks!

      What happened to the cool and maybe even subtle car movies like Le Mans and Grand Prix. For that matter what happened to good car chase scenes like in Bullitt, Ronin, or the Bourne movies?
      Recently we've had carbage like Days of Thunder and that god-awful POS by Sly Stallone, "Driven". These days we have to suffer Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Ludacris, and Bow Wow in the Fast and the Furious trilogy and now this, albeit Redline has the eyecandy to possibly make up for a horrendous plot. I wish someday before I die another good car movie is made.

      #11 - Top Gear didn't have the wing because it wasn't available for the CCX at the time of the crash. Watch enough Top Gear and check out the Koenigsegg website if you doubt it.

      On the movie, I wouldn't see this for all the money in the world. As it has been said, it may be car porn, but the story line sounds too awful to watch. I would rather watch SCCA racing or F1 racing Speed (for those two hours of the day when NASCAR isn't on) than waste my time watching this crappy movie.

      Who cares if there's no plot? Just seeing all those supercars in action is worth the ticket.

      Amen Patch! First intelligent comment so far.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I agree with the fact that you shouldn't destroy such a cherry automobile, but Nadia Bjorlin is gonna make for some serious time in my spank bank

      The owner of the cars didn't 'donate' them as willingly as he'd like you to believe. Most all his car were on the block to be reposessed, including the Enzo, the Carrera GT, and the S7. I was there when he originally tried to sell the car to an interested buyer, who let me in on the story.

      He crashed these cars intentionally for insurance purposes, and to get out of the repo bind. The man is a lying cheat, and a traitor, who cares for nothing more than money, and getting what he wants at the expense of others. I hope this movie bombs. With the real estate market taking a turn for the worse, hopefully it will hammers all the nails in his coffin.

      about having supercars needing to have unmatchable performance, speed/acceleration/handling/etc. all have diminishing returns on investment. it is more challenging (and expensive) to upgrade a car to go from 3.0s to 2.5s 0-60mph than 3.5s to 3.0s 0-60mph. it is possible but at some point it isn't worth an increasing cost.

      you are also paying for fit and finish, material quality, brand name, prestige, options, usually a higher topspeed in exotics. if all you are looking for is pure racing ability for the dollar sure get a lotus or caterham or atom. and go ahead throw on twin turbos on those (if that upgrade would work, I wouldn't know)
