Vin Diesel gave baby daughter car

Vin Diesel gave his infant daughter a red Chevelle car.

The Fast & Furious actor has driven numerous sports cars during the course of making the six films in the franchise.

Vin has one vehicle in particular that was his favourite, which he has ensured stays in his life after the cameras stop rolling.

"For me, I like the red Chevelle. I gave it to my daughter," Vin told MTV.

Vin's daughter, Hania Riley, was born in 2008 to his girlfriend, model Paloma Jimenez.

The star had been filming Fast & Furious on the day of her birth. Therefore he felt it was apt to gift her the keys to the red race car on the day she turned one.

Vin also shared a terrifying near death experience that happened to him on the set of the action blockbuster.

During one driving scene, the real life racing action got a bit too much for him. The scary moment came about after Vin was told to drive through a wall of smoke, but the crew failed to mention the tanks were filled with gas.

"Once I get to the gas tanks, it's like two giant fireballs were shot at my car," he finished.

Parts of latest sixth instalment of the franchise were filmed in London, UK.

The film features a cameo from singer Rita Ora, with Vin introduced to the star through P. Diddy.

"We were looking for someone to kick off the most quintessential race in the movie," he said to the BBC.

"We wanted somebody that represented today's London. The kind of multicultural London of today. She was perfect."

Vin hinted that a seventh Fast & Furious movie might be in the pipeline. The Hollywood hardman teased at who he would like to see in the movie.

"The Rihanna character, the character that the studio has been considering Rihanna for, is in the seventh film," he teased.

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
