Deckard Shaw, the villain who seeks revenge on the Toretto gang in Furious 7, might be driving a Jaguar F-Type, but that’s not good enough for the actor playing the character in real life. Like any other bad boy among the top-notch actors, Jason Statham is also a Ferrari owner. It appears to be a recent addition since we never saw him with the silver F12berlinetta before.
Hey, don’t hate the man quite yet. He might be the bad guy in the movie, and we all know how sensible you guys are after seeing that emotional ending, a rightful tribute paid to the regretted Paul Walker. However, we all know that Jason Statham, in fact, is quite a cool fellow. Cool and car-loving, that is.
The picture was shared by Ferrari USA on their Twitter account four days ago, and we’re assuming it has something to do with the official release of the long-awaited Furious 7.
In fact, the company’s strategy was quite simple. Considering the seventh installment of the Fast and Furious franchise was heavily promoted, with commercials running almost everywhere, the Italian sportscar maker figured they could use the opportunity to get some attention for themselves.
Other than the fact this marketing move is already getting kind of old (and boring for that matter), we can’t but enjoy the sight of this gorgeous exotic. We can only imagine how that naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine sounds like when Statham is starting the engine in front of his Los Angeles mansion and goes to work. Bad boys for life!
