"Carrier" is a story about a former paratrooper who did not lose his skill, who tried to live in peace and study business by private car... Working as an elite courier, he never changed the terms of the deal, did not ask for names, and never looked at what he was transporting. However, the former military combat vehicle is not devoid of humanity, which manifests itself when Frank Martin hears a knock from his trunk.
The action movie is full of chases and tense scenes that have never been complete without the spectacular appearance of cars. Let's look at the vehicle fleet of two parts from the repertoire of action cinematography.
Of course, there are central cars in every chase movie. And the directors decided to emphasize the stability and reliability of the former soldier by placing a representative of the German classics in his garage. From the first frames of the picture, the viewer is presented with a stylish and powerful BMW 7-series in the back of E38.
The rear-wheel drive executive sedan was produced from 1994 to 2001. This was the third generation of the popular series. Today, there are six generations of the Bavarian "seven".
Under the hood of the 735iL, a 3,5-liter DOHC V-96 was installed. Starting from the XNUMXth, the engine began to be equipped with the VANOS system. This mechanism, which changes the valve timing, gives the ICE the necessary stability both at high and low speeds (for more details about the need for such a system, see separate article). The maximum engine power is 238 horsepower.
In addition to passenger cars, which were mercilessly destroyed during the filming, there are also trucks in the film.
In an attempt to stop a convoy transporting illegal cargo, Frank had to remember his army skills. With the help of an airplane and a parachute, he captures a tractor Renault Magnum 2001 model year.
This is the third generation of trucks popular with truckers. This series went off the assembly line for five years (from 2001 to 2005). This modernized model was equipped with more economical (compared to previous generations) motors. New six-cylinder diesel units of the E-tech type were installed under the cab. They developed powers of 400, 440 and 480 horsepower. The exhaust system complies with the Euro-3 standard.
There is also a bus in the picture, and not one. The scene was filmed in a bus depot. As a production workshop were used Mercedes-Benz O 405 1998 release.
The Mk2 model used in the picture is the second generation of the German car industry, designed to carry from 60 (standard 35-seat version) to 104 (extended version for 61 seats) passengers.
The second generation bus was produced from the early 1990s to the first half of the 2000s. It was equipped with a turbocharged OM447hA engine with a capacity of 250 horsepower. In 1994, a naturally-aspirated 238 hp engine was also installed in the engine compartment, which ran on natural gas.
In the French action movie, small equipment was also used, for example, motor scooters and mopeds. Of course, these were episodic inserts, but without them the frames would be empty. In one of these scenes, the directors used a Piaggio Ape 50. In fact, this transport is considered the smallest truck in the world.
"Heart" of a small tricycle with a volume of only 50 cubes. Its power is 2,5 horsepower, and the carrying capacity is 170 kilograms. The maximum speed is 45 km / h.
Another representative of the small car - Suzuki AN125. The two-stroke motor of this scooter develops a power of seven horses, and its volume is 49,9 cubic centimeters.
In 2005 the second part of "Carrier" was released, which turned out to be no less popular among fans of the genre. The main machine of the hero in this picture was Audi A8 L 2005 release.
Most likely, the directors used several cars of this series, because in some shots a car appears with the W12 label on the radiator grid, and in others without it.
The German executive sedan is ideal for the transport of an elite carrier. Under the hood of this car, the manufacturer installed a 4,2-liter diesel engine. It developed 326 horsepower with 650Nm of torque.
Another "heroine" of the picture - Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster. The open top Italian supercar is great for dynamic chase scenes. The prototype of this car was shown at the Detroit Auto Show in 2003.
A feature of this series is the improved performance of the body. Since it does not have a roof, the manufacturer has improved its torsional rigidity to maintain dynamism. True, such a roadster cannot be driven faster than 160 km /. But there are no limits for Frank.
As representatives of the trucks, the scriptwriters chose:
- Pierce Saber - fire engine with a tank volume of 2839 liters;
- Freightliner FLD-120 is a tractor with 450 hp. and a motor volume of 12700 cubic centimeters;
- The Freightliner Business Class M2 106 is an American truck with a 6-cylinder 6,7-liter engine and 200 hp.
Among the "heavyweights" of the film "Carrier 2" appears the American school bus International Harvester S-1900 Blue Bird 1986. Compared to previous analogues, these buses have improved ergonomics around the driver's seat. So, the chair was slightly raised and moved forward. This improved the view of the road. So that he would not be distracted during the transportation of noisy schoolchildren, the cabin was separated from the passenger compartment. The transmission was equipped with an automatic transmission.
Both parts of the picture turned out to be dynamic thanks to a good fleet of vehicles, which were selected by the scriptwriters. Although they could not come close to the Fast and Furious style. Here top 10 wheelbarrows, on which Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and the rest of the heroes of all parts of the film did not lose popularity.
