Best car action movies

We rate the best car-themed action flicks of all time!


Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

Bond, Las Vegas, and orbiting space lasers. Crazy stunts, including a chase scene with Bond escaping down an alleyway in a Mach 1 on two wheels.

Cobra (1986)

Features Stallone rollin’ in an incredible custom 1950 Mercury, complete with Moon discs and nitrous. Great to see an old car serving it up to more modern machinery. Shame the dialogue is such rubbish.

Die Another Day (2002)

Car chase between a Jaguar XKR and an Aston Martin Vanquish in this spectacular advertisement, sorry, Bond movie.

The Bourne Identity (2002)

Excellent spy flick starring Matt Damon. More proof that if you are running from the cops in the tight streets of a European city, it is hard to beat a Mini.

Goldfinger (1964)

Legendary gadget-laden Aston Martin DB5 makes its debut, as does the famously named Pussy Galore and Oddjob with his deadly bowler hat.

The Man With The Golden Gun (1974)

Has arguably the best-ever Bond chase scene, involving an AMC Hornet that does a loop. Yee-haa!

Mission Impossible 2 (2000)

An Audi TT and Porsche Boxster duel at the start of the film. More a car fight scene than a car chase scene.

Jack Reacher (2012)

Tom Cruise rips through the US in a bad-arse Chevelle, with half-a-dozen car chases making this for a must-see flick for car fans.

Convoy (1978)

A fast-paced, easy-watching old-school movie where a couple of truckies break for the Mexican border after a minor disagreement with the constabulary in a bar.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

An EPIC car chase disguised as a movie. One of the greats.

Highwaymen (2004)

After hero James Cray has his wife mowed down by a lunatic, he saddles up his Barracuda and stops at nothing to run down the perpetrator.
