The cats over at have compiled a list, with video, of their 24 favourite cinematic car chases of all time including Road Warrior,The French Connection, Bourne Identity, and more.

The list is impressive and one standout was the French short film C’etait un rendez-vous (It was a date.)

Filmed in 1976, on the streets of Paris one summer morning, this 7-minute clip is pure balls. Filmed in one take, Frenchman Claude Lelouch did the driving, in a Mercedes 450SEL (although the sound is an overdubbed Ferrari engine) and this is not sped up, Lelouch reaches speeds of up to 135mph and pulls off some gutsy turns and dodges. Athough no one is chasing him in this sequence it’s still well worth checking out. I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, the french are no joke.
