Pour les amateurs de cascades [à ne pas reproduire sur la route ] de belles voitures, de grands espaces et de ''westerns modernes'' , Need for speed arrive dans sa grande Mustang au Cinéma René Fallet :
Tobey Marshall et Dino Brewster partagent la passion des bolides et des courses, mais pas de la même façon… Parce qu’il a fait confiance à Dino, Tobey s’est retrouvé derrière les barreaux. Lorsqu’il sort enfin, il ne rêve que de vengeance. La course des courses, la De Leon – légendaire épreuve automobile clandestine – va lui en donner l’occasion. Mais pour courir, Tobey va devoir échapper aux flics qui lui collent aux roues, tout en évitant le chasseur de primes que Dino a lancé à ses trousses. Pas question de freiner…
Tobey Marshall is a former race car driver who owns a Mount Kisco, New York garage, where he and his friends tune performance cars. Struggling to make ends meet, he and his crew participate in street races after hours. One day, Dino Brewster, Tobey's former rival, arrives at his garage with an offer to complete the build of a rare Ford Shelby Mustang worked on by the late Carrol Shelby. Dino wants Tobey and his crew to complete the project in exchange for 25% of the car's estimated selling price of $2 million. Despite objections from the crew, Tobey agrees to the deal. Upon completion of the project, the Shelby Mustang is put up for auction at a party. Tobey and Dino meet Julia, an Englishwoman who agrees to pay $3 million if the car can go over 230 mph, as Tobey claims. The next morning at a nearby track, Tobey gets the Mustang to reach 234 mph, prompting Julia to purchase it for $2.7 million. Later, Dino challenges Tobey and his partner Little Pete to race his uncle's three illegally imported Koenigsegg Agera from his mansion to a bridge over Interstate 684. If Tobey wins, he gets Dino's 75% of the Mustang deal; if he loses, he gives up his 25%. During the race, Dino tags Little Pete's car, sending it flipping down a ravine before bursting into flames. Dino disappears from the scene, and Tobey is sent to jail for involuntary manslaughter, as there is no evidence pointing to Dino's involvement.
