An amazing car chase scene, truly a ground breaker. Moviemakers prior to that would simply speed up the film when editing car chase sequences giving them a hokey "Gilligan's Island" look. Bullitt
was filmed at actual speeds, sometimes in excess of 100mph.
And Sccutler is correct. They towed that Charger up to the proper speed and released it, but it missed the gas station. However, that small point fails to ruin such an awesome sequence.
Patrick Bateman is my hero.
