Everything we do comes from our shared passion to bring you the very best," it continued.

"Thank you Vin [Diesel], who has been at the wheel since this journey began, first as star and then as producer... And thanks to all of the cast of the eighth Fast: Michelle, who's also been with us from the start... Those who've joined our family along the way: Tyrese and Chris from Miami in our second film; Dwayne and Elsa, who came on board in Rio in movie five; Jason, Nathalie and Kurt from last time around; and our newest members Charlize, Scott, Kristofer and Helen..."
