In one in-car shot, Prescott explained that you can see Reeves purposely didn’t have his thumbs wrapped around the steering wheel rim on impact. Apparently, this is an old stuntman trick to avoid breaking them. As for the fancy tail-slides, those were handled by stunt driver Jeremy Fry who also showed off his driving skills in Baby Driver
. In one standout stunt, Fry performed a “flying drift,” sending the Mustang sideways as it jumped out of the warehouse. The ambitious scene took seven or eight takes to get right. In the first take, one of the Mustangs was crushed when the driver mistimed the stunt and clipped the side of the warehouse. Sadly, all five Mustangs used for the film were wrecked.
