most action movies these days contain a spectacular car chase
There are plenty to choose from, but we’ve listed our favourites below.
5. Lucy (2014)
After a dangerous synthetic drug was forced into her system, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) lands herself enhanced physical and mental capabilities. She’s sat in a police car during Parisian rush hour, and has just got a lead on her attacker’s whereabouts…
She’s (rather erratically!) driving the 2014 Car of the Year, Peugeot 308. Second hand models are now available from findandfundmycar.com, for as little as £1,695 (at the time of writing).
4. 21 Jump Street (2012)
Undercover cops + car chase = golden cinema.
In the 2012 remake of the 80s hit TV series, ‘21 Jump Street’, Officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) find themselves speeding down the freeway in a baby pink Volkswagen Beetle, being chased by angry bikers.
Not a traditional car chase movie, but definitely worth a mention…right? Nearly new and used models of the Volkswagen Beetle are now stocked on FindAndFundMyCar.com, from £1,950 (at the time of writing).
3. Quantum of Solace (2008)
After Daniel Craig’s outstanding performance in the 2006 movie ‘Casino Royale’, Bond fans worldwide were longing for the release of ‘Quantum of Solace’, where he would go to play the role of James Bond for the second time. After being hyped for two years, of course the five-minute-long intro had to involve a gripping car chase…
In this scene, Bond’s famous Aston Martin DBS is being chased by two criminals driving Alfa Romeo 159s*. Bond’s car actually retails from £225,000 – here’s hoping he has a decent insurance plan after that scene!
*And naturally, a few guns and Police 4x4s are involved, too.
2. Fast Five (2011)
In the fifth instalment of ‘The Fast and Furious’ movie franchise, the gang break into a police station and steal a vault, dragging it through the city from a matte black Dodge Charger. Lots of drifting, broken windshields and panicked faces guaranteed. Even if you haven’t seen the full movie, this snippet will have you on the edge of your seat!
1. Baby Driver (2017)
Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a young getaway driver who transports crews of robbers to pay off his debts. A previous car accident during his childhood has left him with tinnitus, so he now wears headphones to listen to music whilst driving. Be your own baby driver and get your second hand Subaru WRX today, through findandfundmycar.com. Now available from as little as £3,995 (at the time of writing).
