Continuity mistake: When Hadrian jumps the mustang over the upturned car, the film slows down to show the jump in slow motion. When the car lands, it hits so hard the car spins around and ends up facing the cars it jumped. The scene is then repeated at normal speed, but just as the car would be shown spinning out, a shot of the car driving away from the accident is shown.

Continuity mistake: When Pace is picking up the "OOO GAL" Challenger with his tow-truck for the second time after someone discovered the plates were fake, he is speeding away with the Challenger hooked to the tow-truck with the cops on his tail. At one point the front-right wheel hubcap falls off the Challenger, but in the next shot it's back on.

Visible crew/equipment: In the chase scene after the police cars hit the garbage truck, as the police are chasing Eleanor from right to left, there are two crew members in the middle of the road. One lying down on a mat, and the other one standing behind him.

Continuity mistake: At the climax of the film, the Mustang leaps over the top of wrecked cars. When the car lands, you can tell it has sustained major damage (bent A-frame), but thanks to between-takes repairs, in the very next shot the car is fine and speeds away.

Maindrian Pace: Well, you know... parking lot attendants.

Trivia: It might be fun to know that H.B. Halicki, the man who plays Maindrian Pace, did all the driving himself. No stunt double was ever used for Halicki in the car scenes. That's kind of impressive to think of when you look at the last jump with Eleanor. Also a good point to note - H.B. Halicki could actually break into a car in less than 60 seconds.
