Thumbs up Check this awesome video thru Paris streets

This probably should be in Lounge but I figure more people could enjoy this here. This was done in 1978 at 140 mph thru the streets of Paris in a Ferrari 275 GTB with an F1 pro driver. The French director who put it together was later arrested. Turn UP your volume. YouTube - Rendezvous

Pretty awesome stuff....got my heart pounding in a few shots!!

Some say its a Mercedes-Benz SEL 6.9 (4 speed automatic). Dubbed sound. May 2006, Lelouch said that it was his Mercedes, ferrari dubbing, and he himself was the driver??

Never heard a Mercedes sound like a Ferrari and with heel/toe down shifts like that, I doubt highly an automatic. Glad you liked it though.

I never heard a Mercedes sound like that either, unless the Ferrari sound was an overdub, like I said in my original post??

Some other comments:

I have heard it was actually a Mercedes-Benz SEL 6.9 doing the racing through the streets. They re-dubbed the engine noise with a Ferrari afterwards.

This was a Datsun 510 with a 300ZX Twin Turbo engine. I thought this was common knowledge?

Who knows??? Kewl vid though.......

amazing how little traffic there was on the main street going directly through paris. If anyone has ever been there you will see just how crowded that road usually is.... he is driving past the Arc d'Triumph and down Champs Elysees which is like driving down 5th avenue in NYC.
