10 Bullet
9 The Italian Job
8 Mad Max II the truck at the end
7 Boat Chase in Live and Let Die
6 Gone is 60 Seconds remake
5 Gone is 60 Seconds original
4 The French Connection
3 Diamonds are Forever
2 Vanishing Point
1 Duel

The following candidates (not in any order)

Bullet (obviously and probably my favourite)
The Italian Job (original)
The French Connection
Gone is 60 Seconds (the new one with Nick Cage – chase in the Mustang at the end)

Diamonds are Forever
Chase including bridge jump in Man with the Golden Gun
