If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

I went and saw Baby Driver last night, and brought along non-car people (BTS: spoilers if you haven't seen the trailer)

Everyone loved it. The script, camera work, acting, soundtrack, everything was amazing. I actually saw it because the stunt driver for Baby is on a forum I’m active on. BTS details after the jump (all stuff that’s been shown in the trailer).

All the stunts were done for real, and tucking the nose of the Avalanche under the truck was done at 45 MPH on an actual freeway. The brake-torque 180 in the purple Caprice was actually done by Ansel Elgort, and he actually received a fair amount of stunt driving tuition.

If you want authenticity, this is probably the most authentic car movie made since the 1971 version of Gone.
