One of the greatest scenes in the early Fast and Furious franchise was the "warehouse scramble" sequence in 2Fast 2Furious, where characters Brian O'Conner and Roman Pearce use dozens of cars to advert capture by police and make their escape. The scene, which involved over 200 cars and drivers, required a whole lot of planning.
Senior producer Craig Lieberman was put in charge of organizing the scene, and he recently published a video on YouTube explaining how he pulled it off. Because the film didn't have the budget to buy 200 cars, it decided to contract private owners, and have them drive the cars on-set instead. To get volunteers, he organized a "car casting call" meet up at Homestead Speedway, where 500 people showed up, each with their own unique car. The director ended up selecting 192 cars to participate.
For the scene to happen, the film also needed around two dozen police cars. Fortunately, the Miami PD was planning on selling off a bunch of its old fleet, so the producers snapped them up for $9000 each (that's $216,000 total, if you're curious).
The scene itself only lasted a couple of minutes, but a lot of things had to go perfectly for it to work right. The trucks that led the group out of the warehouse were supplied by Dodge, and the one that drove up the hood of the police car was actually lifted by cables and pulleys. The lead cars for the group were mostly re-used cars from the first Fast and Furious movie, and driven by stunt drivers.
Neither Paul Walker nor Tyrese Gibson were on set for this scene—remember, their characters switched cars, and while their star cars made appearances, they weren't driving them (this wasn't revealed until later in the film, though).
