Having aided wanted felon Dominic Toretto in LA, ex-LAPD officer Brian O'Conner has escaped lớn Miami and is in hiding, making a living street racing in events organized by his friend, mechanic Tej Parker. Brian is arrested following a race, and offered a khuyến mãi by his former quấn, FBI Special Agent Bilkins and Customs Enforcement Agent Markham. Brian is offered lớn have his record cleared by going undercover lớn help secure the arrest of Argentinian drug lord Carter Verone. Brian agrees on the condition he choose his partner. Brian enlists the help of estranged childhood friend, Roman Pearce, in Barstow. Roman, on house arrest for grand theft tự động, is distrustful of Brian due lớn his time as a cop, and blames the latter for his own arrest, resulting in a scuffle. Roman reluctantly agrees on the condition he get the same khuyến mãi.

Back in Miami, Customs Agent Monica Fuentes, who is undercover working for Verone, gets them an audience. After acquiring confiscated vehicles from an impound lot, Brian and Roman are informed Verone intends lớn smuggle money out of a house under surveillance in South Miami, and flee the country in his personal jet. An angry Brian and Roman relay this information lớn Markham, the latter of which nearly compromised their identities during the xế hộp heist. To prevent Markham from undermining the job, Brian and Roman acquire a 1969 Yenko Camaro SYC and 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T in a pink slip race from drivers they raced earlier. At a nightclub, Verone tortures MPD Detective Whitworth into giving the men a window lớn make their getaway. Afterwards, Roman confronts Brian about his attraction lớn Monica, believing she is dirty and the threat of Verone; the two patch up their differences. Monica warns Brian the next morning they will be killed after the drop. Regardless, Markham refuses lớn Hotline off the mission.

On the day of the job, while Brian and Roman load the money with Verone's hitmen, Enrique and Roberto, riding along, Whitworth orders the police move in early, resulting in a police chase across the thành phố. The pair lead the police lớn a warehouse where a scramble organized by Tej causes chaos. Brian and Roman elude the police in the muscle cars, while Tej and Suki, another street racer, are detained driving the police GPS-tagged vehicles. As Brian approaches the airfield, Enrique orders him lớn detour lớn the marina. At the same time, Roman ejects Roberto from his xế hộp with an improvised ejection seat using nitrous. At the airfield, Customs surround the plane but realizes they've been duped. At the marina, Verone reveals he was aware he was under surveillance and gave Monica false information. Verone orders Brian killed, and Monica onto his private yacht, intending lớn use her as leverage. Before Enrique can kill Brian, Roman arrives and the pair incapacitate him. Verone flees aboard the yacht, but is intercepted when Brian drives the Yenko off of a ramp and crashes into the deck. Brian, Roman, and Monica incapacitate and apprehend Verone.

Their khuyến mãi upheld, Markham clears Brian and Roman's record, and Roman hands over Verone's cash. Brian and Roman agree lớn stay in Miami and move on, funded by a cut of the cash they kept for themselves.

Because of the incredible response lớn The Fast and the Furious, we knew we had struck a chord with young audiences. I believe we had tapped into a culture—the very urban world of street racing. It really resonated with our fans, who continued lớn tư vấn the film when it hit the streets on DVD and video—I mean, it really just exploded again, allowing even more people a chance lớn take the ride. We knew they were ready for another film, but only if we delivered one with the same authenticity and edge as the first. Well, we've done just that.

—Producer Neal H. Moritz, on greenlighting the project sequel.[6]

Plans lớn make a sequel came about after the box office success of The Fast and the Furious,[6] which grossed over $200 million worldwide.[7] John Singleton had seen the first film and was awed by it, saying: "When I saw The Fast and the Furious, I was lượt thích, 'Damn, why didn't I think of that?' Growing up in South Central L.A., we had street races all the time."

The director also claimed that the concept of street racing could be something young audiences can relate lớn.[6]

They approached it lượt thích they did sequels in the '80s and '90s, when they would drum up a new story unrelated for the most part, and slap the same name on it."[4] However, Diesel reflected on his decision in a July năm trước report from Uproxx, saying: "I would've said, 'Don't walk away from it just because the script sucked in 2 Fast 2 Furious because there's an obligation lớn the audience lớn fight, no matter what, lớn make that film as good as possible.' ... I might have had a little bit more patience or belief in the long-term of it."[11]

Paul Walker, who had just finished Timeline at the time, reprised his role in the second picture as Brian O'Conner. Tyrese Gibson, then known mononymously as Tyrese, also became a part of the cast having previously acted in Singleton's Baby Boy, which was the singer's feature film acting debut; he portrayed Roman Pearce.[12] Ja Rule, another prominent rap artist who appeared in The Fast and the Furious, was originally tapped for the role of Tej Parker. Ja Rule was offered $500,000 for the role, which was more than vãn what he had been paid lớn appear in The Fast and the Furious, $15,000. According lớn Singleton, "Ja got too big for himself. He turned it down. He turned down a half a million dollars. ... He was acting lượt thích he was too big lớn be in the sequel. He wouldn't return calls." The director then hired Chris "Ludacris" Bridges as a substitute.[5] Bridges would later rise lớn prominence for appearing in the film and star in later films such as Crash and Hustle & Flow.[13] Additional cast also included Cole Hauser as key villain Carter Verone, who appeared in Singleton's Higher Learning; Eva Mendes as undercover agent Monica Fuentes; and Devon Aoki as Suki, the sole female driver in the film.[6]

In năm trước, John Singleton said:

"It was awesome. The heads of the studio at the time were just lượt thích, just make it fun, make it cool, make it this ren. I didn't bởi all that techno music that they did in the first movie. I used nothing but Southern Hip Hop which was lượt thích the rage at the time. I just funked it up, I made it more multi-ethnic. They kind of followed the paradigm that I phối up. What we're going lớn bởi here is Paul [Walker]'s character—God bless his soul — Paul Walker is going lớn be edgy. He's going lớn be more lượt thích a bad boy. That was the film where he was the star. That was the movie where he was the star of the picture because we didn't have Vin [Diesel]. It was a real fun experience."[37]
