2nd place for me is the chase in the British film, Robbery was was made the year before Bullitt by the same director, Peter Yates. It was the realism of this film, when seeing it, that made McQueen push for Yates to be the director of Bullitt and you can the similarities between the two.

3rd place for me would be The French Connection which does have another connection with Bullitt in that stunt driver Bill Hickman, who drove the black Charger in Bullitt also did The French Connection sequence.
