As both hot car and ‘Jack Reacher’ fans, TeamTC felt like putting the pedal to the metal when we found out TopGear had pushed exclusive ‘Jack Reacher’ car chase footage!

Here are a few important facts about this car chase sequence:

  • Yes, Tom did 100% of the car chase stunt driving
  • They went through 8 Chevelles to film that scene, a 9th was given to Tom
  • The scene where ‘Jack’ fishtails into the water divider and the Chevelle stalls, was not planned/faked, it actually happened and the director Christopher McQuarrie decided to keep filming while Tom kept acting!
  • Tom had some ‘near misses’ during the filming and has said it was one of the more dangerous stunts he’s done
  • A similar 1969 Chevy Chevelle was a TeamTC member’s first car and coincidentally, he drove it exactly the same way. (Don’t tell his mom;)
