- Page 1

For decades now, we've loved watching movies that feature cars going fast enough to do something stupid in. Whether it's the highlight of a movie like The French Connection, or the foundation of an entire franchise like The Fast and The Furious, we just can't get enough.

With the release of Edgar Wright's Baby Driver, the newest movie to enter into this awesome genre, we decided to highlight our personal favorite moments of fast action and even faster cars.

1) Ronin (1998)

When you have an action movie directed by a former amateur race car driver (John Frankenheimer), chances are you're in for some pretty great car chases. Ronin's chase through the streets of Paris is the stuff of film legend, often dropping out the music to let the roar of the engines act as the chase's entire soundtrack.

One of the more realistic chases in film history, this one's less about speed and more about just how much punishment Jason Bourne and his car can take before giving in. You practically FEEL every hit that lands on his beat-up cab.

3) Vanishing Point (1971)

A car chase classic from the genre's heyday, Vanishing Point features intense driving and a white Dodge Challenger so iconic that Quentin Tarantino would use it for his own awesome car chase movie, Death Proof.
