Furious 7 wrecked over 230 cars - what happened to them then?!

Furious 7 is breaking all the records at the box office right now, scoring $406 million worldwide in just a matter of days.

Now that's a heck of a lot of money but it also has to be seen in perspective, especially when you consider that the production budget of the film might have been as high as $250 million and that's before the massive marketing blitz. Part of that cost was down to delays after the untimely death of actor Paul Walker but its not hard to see where the rest of the cash went, it's right there on screen.Case in point, it has emerged that the production wrecked over 230 cars during production. That's 230 real functioning vehicles which were purchased for the express purpose of totalling them. For Furious 7, that included the regular old car crashes, explosions and drone strikes but also tossing multiple real-life cars out of a plane and letting them plummet to earth and flatten themselves. Which is insane no matter what way you look at it.
