November’s WIRED magazine referred to a 1976 movie called “C’etait un Rendez-Vous”, an 8-minute balls-out barrelling through Paris city streets in the early morning, in a Ferrari 275. Of course, I had to find it and watch it, and of course, it was on YouTube. Now THAT’S a fast ride!
Update 8/23/2012: There was a link to the YouTube video here, but as the video owner has asked YouTube to pull the video down, I’ve also removed my link to the (now-defunct) video. I’m sure if you do a Google search you’ll be able to find where to purchase the video if you’re interested.
