The Transporter 3, the third and final installment in the original trilogy of the Transporter franchise released in 2008 features one of the best car chasing scenes in the industry, thanks to the amazing driving skills executed by Special Forces operative turned private chauffeur, Frank Martin.

In the movie, Frank Martin, played by English actor Jason Statham, delivered several special “packages”. In addition to his martial arts fighting skill, Frank also has incredible driving ability, with the latter matching the high-performance of his black armoured Audi A8 luxury limousine.

According to the stunt coordinator, Michel Julienne, this special Audi was welded to the side of one of the trucks to accomplish the tricky stunt of having it tilt up on two wheels.

Behind the wheels of the Audi A8 is Julienne’s son, who was pulled along the side of the truck by a small engine inside the truck. While the car’s powerful four-wheel drive had to be hobbled to two-wheel drive, the team said that the tyres that took the most abuse.

Julienne says :

“We had to change the tires very often”

“We’d get up to speeds of 60 to 70 kilometers an hour [about 40 mph], but then we’d have to change the tires every kilometer or so.”

The other truck, driven by Julienne’s brother, was not attached but was under instructions to drive as close as possible to the car.

Julienne, who had no fears for his son’s safety, added that :

“It came very close but did not touch,”

“My brother was driving the truck.”
