His 8th Gen Honda Accord build was sponsored this year by JDM Sport and made it to this year's SEMA 2016 50th Anniversary Celebration in Las Vegas. Marcus is the president of the car club where his Accord build underwent various upgrades as a featured vehicle for the SEMA Show.

If you had the chance to watch Fast & Furious 6 this weekend, you were probably wondering what kind of ride Letty was driving when she made her return in the beginning of the film during the chase scene where Dom's 1969 Plymouth Daytona was catching up to Owen Shaw's Flip Car. Was it an old school Porsche? How about an old school Z? Well after the recent unveiling of the Fast & Furious 6 vehicles at Universal Studios, it was revealed that Letty's car is a 1973 Jensen Interceptor.

The GT sporting class car was hand built in the United Kingdom by Jensen Motors from 1966-1976. Only 6,408 of them were produced into the market. Let's check out the content of what was inside Letty's Jensen build: Power: GM LS3 6.2 Liter 480 HP Drivetrain: Kilgore GM Turbo 400 Manual Transmission/Moser 9 Inch Rear Differential/4.56 Gears With Detroit Locker/Driveshaft 3" .083 Tubing Spicer 1350 U-Joints Brake System: 2009 Mustang GT With EBC Pads Suspension: Atlas Springs/Speedway Engineering Sway Bars/KYB Shocks Exhaust: Custom Built 3 Inch Magnaflow System Body Modifications: Vented Hood/Flared Rear Fenders/Shaved Rear Bumper/Stainless Grill Interior: Custom Cage & Tin Work/Autometer Gauges/Sparco Seats/OMP Seat Belts Exterior: Mercedes Graphite Gray Paint/Vented Hood/Flared Rear Fenders/Shaved Rear Bumper/Stainless Grill/Hella Lights Wheel: Motegi MR224/17 x 8 Front & 17 x 9.5 Rear Tires: Continental 225/40 R17 Front 285/40 R17 Rear Photo Credit: AutoBlog/Universal Pictures
