Default How to wreck a car

I just read a book in which the villain shoots up his pursuers' parked cars to prevent them being used, and the hero then commandeers a horse to give chase.

Now I'm thinking a vehicle with shot tyres (or even a holed radiator, which wasn't in the story) is going to provide a better means of pursuing a motorised quarry than a horse - difference in speed and endurance compared with time taken to change a wheel... But then I'm not the author...

However, it got me to thinking... Putting a round or two into the tyres or the radiator is a stock way to disable a TL7- ground car, but how would you disable a vehicle that runs on fuel cells, a MHD turbine or a fusion reactor? What about grav vehicles? What would be the vulnerable hit locations for future vehicles?
