Top 10 Movie Car Chases.

Fo once I really can not find a flaw.

Except maybe the Italian Job since I own a Cooper.

Not a chase but Gumball Rally the Cobra and the Daytona racing at night.

The French Connection (1971)
In pursuit of a drug suspect, grubby New York detective Popeye Doyle (Gene Hackman) appropriates a civilian car and chases an elevated subway train, barreling beneath the tracks at 90 mph.
YouTube Video Clip of The French Connection

Bullitt (1968)
Steve McQueen steers a Mustang fastback through what many consider to the standard-setter for all car chase scenes. Hard-boiled cop Frank Bullitt (McQueen) races the bad guys' Dodge Charger up and down the streets of San Francisco at speeds up to 110 mph in a sequence that helped earn the movie an Oscar for its innovative editing.
YouTube Video Clip of Bullitt

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
In his attempts to babysit impetuous John Connor (Edward Furlong), The Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) must avoid having his motorcycle run over by an 18-wheeler piloted by the metal-melding T-1000 (Robert Patrick).
YouTube Video Clip of Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Ronin (1998)
This multi-car chase through the narrow, steep streets of Nice, France, in this Robert De Niro spy thriller is one-upped only by the sheer lunacy of an against-the-traffic pursuit through tunnels under the Seine in Paris.
YouTube Video Clip of Ronin

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)
A band of punk-biker pirates pursues a tribal convoy, led by Mel Gibson's Mad Max, that's escorting a precious fuel tanker to safety. Fighters clad in studded leather spar atop moving cars, motorcycles and trucks, picking each other off with shotguns and crossbows.
YouTube Video Clip of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

The Blues Brothers (1980)
Jake Blues (John Belushi) and his brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) leave a 106-mile path of destruction as they speed toward downtown Chicago in the Bluesmobile (a converted Dodge Monaco police cruiser).
YouTube Video Clip of The Blues Brothers

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry (1974)
Obsessive sheriff (Vic Morrow) in a Bell Helicopter pursues a 69 Dodge Charger driven by bad guys. The chase takes them through a citrus orchard and ends with the Charger colliding with a locomotive.
YouTube Video Clip of Dirty Mary Crazy Larry

Vanishing Point (1971)
The movie opens with Kowalski (Barry Newman) in a white 1970 Dodge Challenger sparring with the California Highway Patrol. And the excitement keeps building, crossing median strips while just missing cross traffic, sliding along dirt roads, and running at what are obviously true high speeds.
YouTube Video Clip of Vanishing Point

Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)
A South American drug lord pays Maindrian Pace (Toby Halicki) $400,000 to steal 48 specific cars for him, and all but one a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 with a code name of "Eleanor" are successfully stolen by Pace and his associates. The film is famous for having wrecked and destroyed 93 cars in a 40-minute car chase scene.


To Live and Die in L.A. (1985)
As the life of a Secret Service agent (played by CSI star and legit car enthusiast William Petersen) slides into anarchy, he takes greater and greater chances with his own life and the lives of those around him, including pursuit with Petersen piloting a Chevrolet the wrong way down the freeway.
YouTube Video Clip of To Live and Die in L.A.

I'd personally rate the chase in Bullitt #1 and the French connection #2, other than that...a good list.

This does bring mind the question of the top motorcycle chase on film...
My favorites would be "Coogans's Bluff" when Clint Eastwood, playing an Arizona Deputy Sherriff commandeers a '67 Triumph Bonneville to chase the escaping perp, who he was sent to NYC to return to AZ for trial, who is riding a '67 Triumph T100R Tiger, through a big park in NYC ...It is the climatic scene of the movie.
OR...

The chase scene through the desert when the Hell's Angels (actual members of the Oakland chapter playing themselves) realize they'd been duped into helping 2 bogus bikers from the east to escape after robbing a Las Vegas Casino in "Hell's Angels '69". Probably the best biker exploitation film made...great production values...Eddie Mulder, J N Roberts and Bud Ekins did alot of the stunt riding...many of the HA members did their own stunts!

I had to bring motorcycles in to this...it IS a motorcycle site after all!

I believe the Eleanor car in Gone in 60 seconds was not a 73 Mach 1. It was a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang with modifications. The 73 looks like a giant wedge and by 73, had a significantly derated powerplant than in the heyday of the late 60s.

Good list though.

At the end when he gets shot. It's been a long time since I have seen it though.

He chases the car through the desert.

^^^ That wasn't a chase scene...he was trying to catch up to him to give him his license back and they thought he decided to search the van after letting them go....Now, the chase in the Great Escape is a chase...did you know that in that scene Steve McQueen chased himself ?...He'd ride past the camera as his character on the run, then they cut and he'd go back, put on a German uniform and jump on one of the chasing bikes and ride past the camera as one of his persuers (sic?). He did NOT make the jump over the fence...Bud Ekins did that.
