Baby Driver (2017)
The film's ending was partially inspired by this film, as both feature criminals taking responsibility for their actions and being willing to face the consequences.
Debora and Baby were referred as Bonnie and Clyde when escaping.

The vehicle change in the second heist of Wright's film borrows from Lenzi's.
Both feature the leader of a carjacking criminal team nicknamed "Doc". Wright has frequently cited Bava as an influence.
Edgar Wright says this is one of the inspirations for his film, and also its director Walter Hill makes a cameo as a courtroom interpreter. Also, The numbers (28071978) on Baby's prison jumpsuit at the end of the film correspond to the release date of The Driver.
Bats mentions the iconic horror movie. Doc wanted Michael Myers masks rather than Austin Power ones.
Jason is mentioned before the heist.
The post office teller says she is working "9 to 5 like Dolly" in reference to this film
The electronic "beep-boop" that accompanies the opening of the Post Office's sliding doors to Baby and Samm (Doc's nephew) as they enter and leave is a sound effect used in this film, pitched up one octave.
There are multiple references to the "Back to the Future Trilogy" with Kevin Spacey's character named "Doc" (Back to the Future) and Jon Bernthal's character is named "Griff" (Back to the Future Part II). The actor "Flea" who played the character "Needles" in Back to the Future Parts II & III plays a small role in this film as "Eddie." The character "Doc" in the film also mentions a past job called "The Spirit of '85," which is the year the first Back to the Future was released (1985).

The film contains quite a few references to the 1989 anime getaway driver film Riding Bean. Among them are Baby's facial scarring (and specifically the way his upper scar sticks out above his sunglasses), the supercharged red sports car with a hood scoop he drives in the first chase scene of the film, the use of license plate numbers to refer to other car chase movies, and, hugely, the final showdown between Buddy and Baby in a parking garage, which mirrors the final sequence of Riding Bean and even includes a few nearly-identical shots.
Two character names are direct lifts from Goodfellas, Batts and Jimmy No-Nose. Baby briefly works for a pizza store by this name.
Thugs are wearing Austin Powers masks to begin their robbery.
Edgar Wright remade the first scene almost shot-for-shot from his earlier music video work.
