They are suppose to be the two Taurus from the chase falling off the bridge but as you can see on the picture they are obviously not Taurus, they seem Ford Sierra to me, specially in the back, it seems as if they have been modified a bit the head and rear lights to make them look more like a taurus, what do you think?

Yea i think they are Ford Sierras as well, but I've seen this scene and I clearly think there is just ONE car, then they repeated the car with CGI effects :p

The worst of it is the fact that they only used one sierra, but they put a "twin" of it digitally next to it so it seems there are two fo them falling off, for the landign they use different camera angles to make it look as if two of them were on the floor, this time it does not work as good as the CGI im afraid :p

:lol: well in Europe the Taurus are not very common, so it is normal to use another more common car for the stunt :D

edit: or South Africa instead of Europe, I guess that the problem is the same, US cars are probably not much more common there than here.

I know that, it's still very cheap of them. It's another film set in America that was filmed in South Africa, sadly they obviously didn't have the money to make the film properly.

And here's a South African movie/television car rental firm that supplied cars for this film:
