TRIVIA: Nicolas Cage did most of his own stunt driving for the film. He attended the Bondurant Driving School in Phoenix, Arizona, Willow Springs (another car driving school), and the Bobby Ore Stunt Driving School in preparation for the film. He liked the race car driving school so much that he continued to pursue it as a hobby after shooting was completed.

When Mirror Man is talking to the clerk at the police impound yard, a sign can be seen in the background that reads "If you leave your car unlocked it will be Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)". This same sign was used in the original 1974 version of the movie.

Christopher Eccleston did not actually have his drivers license during the shoot. He did not choose to take the drivers test until several years after the film was released.

Christopher Eccleston described this as a "terrible film in which I give a terrible performance", adding that, before Doctor Who (2005), people who recognised him mostly shouted "'You were in Gone in 60 Seconds, mate! You were shit!' And I have to laugh at that, because I was!""

When Memphis first talks to Otto in his shop, there is a decal on the window of a woodpecker. It is the same woodpecker that Nicolas Cage's has as a tattoo in Raising Arizona (1987).
