Goldfinger (1964) Chase Two

Of the first three films, this is the best chase, with beautiful cars, breathtaking scenery, and cool special effects (relatively speaking).

Bond chases Tilly Masterson in his DB5, right after she tries to take him out with a rifle (inadvertently). This takes place right outside Geneva, where Bond has been tailing Goldfinger in his Rolls-Royce.

Tilly Masterson drives a brand new Mustang convertible, which had just made its world premiere.

Of course, the Mustang met its demise thanks to the first James Bond car weapon: the rotating wheel cutter. This was no doubt the inspiration for Switch Blade in the 1980s video game, Spy Hunter.
