Events of the story
Reyes employs Brian, Dom, Mia and Vince alongside Zizi, his personal assistant, and his henchmen to hijack three DEA seized cars from a train. Reyes is, however, only interested in one car - a Ford GT40 that contains a computer chip holding the whereabouts of his ten cash houses. However, when Mia escapes with the car, Reyes captures and interrogates Brian and Dom with the intention of finding the location of the car; however, the pair escape to their safehouse. Vince is later caught with the chip and reveals he intended to sell it to Reyes himself, with the intention of stopping the manhunt and bounty set on Dom.
Reyes' men attack the safehouse just as Luke Hobbs and his fellow agents do and a chase entails. The trio manage to escape and Hobbs' agents kill Reyes' goons, except for Zizi.
Dom and Brian, with the aid of the chip, plan to steal all of Reyes' money and start a new life for themselves, and thus call both of their friends and associates to form a new, stronger crew. They first hit one of Reyes' cash houses and burn the $10 million stored there, revealing their faces to Reyes' workers. As the man in charge of the cash house reports to Reyes what happened, Reyes strikes him over the head with a bust in a fit of rage, killing him instantly. Reyes proceeds to move all of his money into a locked vault inside the police station, putting all the cops there on his payroll to keep guard over it at all times.
As Hobbs eventually arrests Dom, Mia, Brian and Vince their convoy is attacked by Reyes' men who kill all of Hobbs' team members (and Vince) but all are later killed by Dom, Brian and Vince, save for Zizi, who escapes death once more.
Dom and his team (including Hobbs and Elena) attack the police station. Dom and Brian remove and drive off with the vault, pursued by a horde of dirty cops as well as Reyes and Zizi. On the bridge, the vault flips, crashing into Reyes' car; Zizi jumps out to save himself and leaves Reyes to scream as the vault hits his car. Following Zizi's death, Reyes crawls out of the car, moments after Hobbs arrive, and begs for his life. Hobbs, however, executes him in the name of his team. The team split Reyes' money and escape.
