The Mustang's engine sound suggests that it has a manual transmission, and there is a brief shot of a character's feet on the pedals where a clutch pedal can be seen. The "clunk" of a manual shifter is also heard with every gear change. However, in another shot, an automatic shifter is clearly visible, and in numerous scenes, the car is heard changing gears while the driver visibly has both hands on the steering wheel. It is unclear which type of transmission the car is supposed to have. See more »
Hey, I've been doing some homework on this kid Tobey Marshall from Mount Kisco. This kid was a phenom. Used to tear up the local circuits. Him and his dad, man, they campaigned like champions.

Better than the increasingly ridiculous Fast and Furious series.
I watched this due to my like of Aaron Paul. I was very pleasantly surprised, going in with low expectations. I expected a very OTT race movie. Likeable hero and crew, sneer-worthy villain in Dominic Cooper. Sassy love interest in my fellow brit Imogen Poots. Michael Keaton was great as Monarch, Rami Malek also superb in minor support. Dakota Johnson bland and forgettable as ever.
What you get with Need for speed is just over two hours of solid respectable escapism, with great automotive stunts and some insanely skillful driving. Very enjoyable film. Recommended.
