Character error 

When the Shelby pulls in to an alley, and the police follow, one officer pulls out his flashlight and checks to see if the car is there. He looks everywhere but the ground.

Continuity 

When the city power plant is destroyed, in a truly spectacular series of explosions, the city is shown experiencing a total blackout. For the rest of the movie, there is not a single light out, not a street light, traffic light, or building light, negating the whole premise of the robbery theme.
When The Kid gets in the car, and while they are arguing, the door is open. Neither of them close the door, and nothing happens that would close it, but when the car backs up, the door is closed.

While Magna and The Kid are being chased by police, he keeps telling her to put on her seat-belt, which she never does. Yet, many scenes during the chase show her wearing her seat-belt and then not wearing it in the next.

Errors in geography 

While the movie takes place in Bulgaria, the police cars all say POLICE in English, 911 is referenced even though that is the US emergency number.

Factual errors 

The movie takes place in Sofia - the capital city of Bulgaria, where the police cars are completely white or white with 2 thin horizontal blue lines on the sides of the car with "police", written on the front hood and "police" written in Buldarian with Cyrillic at the sides. The police cars in the movie are wrong - white with thick yellow and blue diagonal stripes and Latin "police" on the sides.

For the first half of the movie, every time Magna wants to speed up, we see him shifting into 5th gear instead of down-shifting.

Revealing mistakes 

When the Shelby tries to drive down a flight of steps, we only see a shot of it starting, and one of it at the bottom. It couldn't have made it down the steps with ground clearance, so we don't see what would have been a good shot, it actually coming down the steps.

The Shelby Super Snake has a 220 mph speedometer not the 140 mph one shown.
