If you think your auto insurance premiums are high now, then think about what they would be if people drove like this in real life. While it might seem insanely cool to have cars jumping each other and exploding during your morning commute, who would want to pay the deductible? Leave these stunts to the pros:
Very Mad Max
Mad Mel throws an object into his enemy’s windshield, causing a massive accident. Hey, isn’t Gibson’s career a massive accident anyways?
A Mini Through Paris
Most car chase stunts are performed by fire-breathing sports cars. But Jason Bourne doesn’t roll that way. He’d prefer to get away in a relic, because that’s his style.
Bullitt – Uninsurable
This is one of the most iconic car chases in film history. The reason is because it is shot so well, and because Steve McQueen is way cool. They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
The Fast and the Furious franchise started out with this incredible street racing scene (here set to a techno beat). A whole lot of fast, but where’s the furious?
Cops in Ferraris
In Bad Boys II, the good guys are hunting down a semi truck in a Ferrari, dodging cars getting launched from an auto carrier, and an exploding boat. This is a totally plausible sequence, right? Not really, but it’s badass nonetheless.
BMW vs. Peugeot
The move Ronin has a great car chase scene featuring an unlikely matchup between car manufacturers. Does anyone think that the Peugeot can actually WIN?
Hummer vs. Ferrari
Would you insure either Sean Connery or Nicolas Cage? You certainly wouldn’t after taking in this scene from The Rock that was shot in San Francisco.
We love Mel Gibson’s Mad Max character so much we thought we’d bring you the sequel’s top stunt. Since this is an apocalyptic world, no insurance is needed!
Cannonball Run was one of the top car movies of its time. This opening scene pitting cops against a supercar is why you don’t mess with Lamborghinis.
The Blues Brothers were pretty musical, but did you know that they were also great drivers? Here’s every car chase scene from this amazing movie, condensed into one amazing montage!

Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned movie car chase? You’ve got speed, awesome cars and danger all combined into one. Hollywood puts a lot of work into making action-packed car chases, and here’s a list of the best of the best. Just don’t ever expect to get any cheap car insurance if you’re involved in one of these dangerous situations!
See the whole list below. Do you think any famous chases are missing? Let us know your opinions in the comments section:
Smokey and the Bandit
There’s nothing like the cops chasing a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am. It’s going to be hard to catch anything that has Burt Reynolds driving. He can jump a bridge like no other. Seriously, do you think that car would have made it?
This is one of the most famous car chase scenes of all time, featuring Mr. Car Steve McQueen. Who wouldn’t want to own the Ford Mustang that he’s driving? The muffler makes an awesome growl.
Roger Moore. Burt Reynolds. Cars chasing each other. Do you need to know any more about this clip? We didn’t think so.
The French Connection
Gene Hackman stars in the classic movie about cops versus drug dealers. The car chase is quite spectacular, with a car driven by Hackman trying to keep up with a train.
Here's an epic battle of actors in really cool cars. Nicolas Cage is in a Ferrari trying to chase down Sean Connery in a Hummer. In San Francisco.
Before Mel Gibson became crazy, he was once known as Mad Max. Living in a post apocalyptic world, he was a psycho enforcer. Come to think of it, not much has changed!
DeNiro tries chasing down a shady woman he has been doing work for in this scene. Adding to the excitement here is the camera mounted on the front of the cars for dizzying effects.
Gone in 60 Seconds
Nicolas Cage again? You bet, this time in a totally awesome Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 he likes to call “Eleanor.”
A relatively recent movie, this flick features Quentin Tarantino as director. Kurt Russell plays a crazed dude terrorizing an even crazier woman hanging onto the hood of the car.
The Last American Hero
Jeff Bridges stars in this movie about demolition derbies, stock car racing and running moonshine. We don’t recommend doing all of those activities at the same time, but they do at least result in a good chase scene!
