With the death of Paul Walker last year, the certainty of “Fast and Furious 7” continuing was really unknown, but this latest video shows that filming is back underway. A savvy car buff in Abu Dhabi shot this video of the production company shooting some driving scenes for the seventh installment of the F&F franchise.
From this grainy video, it looks like the car in question is a 458 Italia, which is a stark contrast from the imports and classic muscle cars that we are used to seeing in the franchise. Sure, there have been some exotics in the Fast franchise, but rarely did they see this kind of action.
There were no details on the shoot itself, as to when it took place, how long it pasted and if any of the cast was present, but we assume this was a skeleton crew simply shooting a little b-roll to fill some gaps. We’re hoping to see come previews rolling out soon, so stay tuned for those. And until then, enjoy this behind-the-scenes look.

Since the unveiling of the LaFerrari and F12berlinetta, the 458 Italia has become a little outdated, so to speak. Sure, it still holds plenty of value in the market, but it just feels dated now. Well, at the 2013 Frankfurt International Motor Show in September, Ferrari plans to debut a concept that it based on the 458 to not only bring the model back into light, but to also showcase future technology for the automaker.
Dubbed the Ferrari 458 Speciale, this model takes the impressive performance credentials that the 458 Italia already features and cranks the dial way up. A nice and healthy boost in output partners up with active aerodynamics and traction modifications to make this the most capable Ferrari road car to grace a track. It’s just too bad that this specific model will never make its way to production
So, what can we expect to see from Ferrari in the coming years?
Update 8/22/2013: Ferrari has just released a preview video of this awesome concept. You can see the video above.
