The most recent installment of the Fast & Furious franchise spent much of its time in London, and naturally that meant another one of those interchangeable nighttime party scenes with loud exhausts, loud paint jobs, loud music and loud attire. Vice magazine went to London to check out the real tuner-car lifestyle in a documentary called Boy Racer, and in spite of not coming across a single vintage Dodge Charger or sky blue Porsche 911 GT3 RS, there's a lot of what you'd expect.

But in 22 minutes it has time to go well beyond the high-rise wings, tire smoke, neon lighting and hair-raising (literally) audio systems to look at lives beyond the meet-ups. There's the guy who bought a van to tune because the job placement center wouldn't provide money for a car, there are the two women who work in health care and moonlight as promo girls, there's the guy who crushes cars for a living and there are the police trying to let car culture live and keep people from dying.

And then there's Olly and his Burnt Tangerine Candy Orange Subaru WRX STI. The doc spends most of its time with him, and while he's just one guy with one story, he's a character as vibrant and intense as his car's paint job, and good for more than one laugh. Have a watch below.
