Peugeot 406 – Ronin
Mitsubishi Starion – Cannonball Run 2
Driven by Jackie Chan and Richard Kiel;
We first see the Starion dropping out an airplane on the highway. It’s jammed full of electronic wizardry; it can levitate, go underwater, and has rocket boosters. It’s basically KITT from Knight Rider without the backchat.
Mercedes-Benz W108 – The Driver
Ryan O’Neal proves he can drive by destroying an innocent Mercedes in a car park – well it was a beauty beforehand!
Pontiac Ventura – The Seven-Ups
This lengthy chase shows American suspension at its best as it bounces and undulates along New York streets. Roy Schneider’s Pontiac Ventura pursues stunt driver Bill Hickman’s Pontiac Grand Ville to an unexpected end.
Driven by the scary bionic-armed Mr. Igoe, the shark-nosed BMW is the perfect villain’s car. Just the thing to chase down a scientist on a bike.
Holden HQ Monaro – Mad Max
Seen in the opening chase scene of the classic Australian road movie, it doesn’t last long but the Night Rider’s stolen Holden is almost every bit as mean as Max’s Ford Falcon.
Ford Capri – Brannigan
Sylvester Stallone’s Cadillac was chased through the streets by a XJ12 Jaguar. The best part of an otherwise unremarkable remake.
Peterbilt 281 – Duel
This mean looking rig is the star villain in Steven Spielberg’s first feature film as it frighteningly stalks a Plymouth Valiant through the California desert. (Huge Killer Rigs not for sale on Carsnip!)
