It was even a different James Bond stunt:

Quote:
A speedboat jumping off a ramp and flying through the air can survive the landing and continue driving.

plausible

The Mythbusters obtained a boat which was identical to the model Bond used in the movie. They then converted it so that it could be remote controlled and built a makeshift ramp in Yosemite Lake. They even put a barge with a car under the ramp to simulate the exact scene from the movie. Adam drove the boat at the ramp at a speed of 45 miles per hour, but lost control of the boat at the last second. As a result, the boat managed to clear the car, but flipped in the process. However, seeing that there was no visible damage to the boat, the Mythbusters decided that the myth was plausible.

(Based on a scene in Live and Let Die.)

The Seven-Ups
Ends with one car getting wedged under a truck.
Roy Scheider somehow avoided losing his head along with the top of the car.

The French Connection has already been mentioned. William Friedkin directed another car chase in To Live And Die In L.A.. At one point the cars are driving the wrong way on an L.A. expressway.

The funniest car chase is in the Alec Guinness film "The Lavender Hill Mob."

Gone in 60 Seconds, the original 1974 version.

Starring Eleanor, a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach One with a 351 Cobra-Jet (Q Code) small block.

You'll want to make sure you have a bit of free time set aside when you watch it. It goes on for some time.
