The Transporter (2002) Poster

Trivia

When Lai is flipping through the picture's at Frank's house, the photo of the little boy with the monkey is really Jason Statham.
The trailer for the film showed Frank deflecting a missile with a tea tray. In the same scene in the film, the assault on Frank's house, there is no sign of this in the released version. It was taken out at Jason Statham's request because he didn't think audiences would believe it.
Jason Statham did most of his own stunts.
Frank's car is a BMW 750i E38 (pre-facelift). The car in the movie is the only one ever produced with a manual six-speed gearbox. This information is obtained from the full-length audio commentary available on the DVD. People have made conversions using the manual gearbox from the BMW 850CSi E31 but that car is genuinely rare.
In the DVD Bonus features, it is revealed that during the garage scene, what was thought to be transmission oil is really molasses syrup. Jason Statham reported it to be a very 'sticky' situation.
When Lai is using the computer, she browses through several other pictures before finding Wall Street's. The other pictures are all of crew members and the names next to the pictures are all jokes ("Gordon Zola", "Christiane Isme"...).
The "ignition code" for Frank's BMW is 1732.
When leaving the police station after Frank's house was blown up, Lai goes to take a taxi; the taxi is a white Peugeot 406, the same taxi the main character drives in Luc Besson's Taxi (1998).
