Greatest Driving Scene in a Movie Ever
 
[URL=http://mirror.rtor.net/rendezvous20_04.mov ]C'était un rendez-vous[/URL]

C'etait un Rendezvous is the creation of the French filmmaker Claude Lelouch in 1976. Using a Ferrari 275 GTB early one August morning, Lelouch attached a camera to the bumper of the car and sped through the streets of Paris. He gave the driver a set route from Porte Dauphine, through the Louvre, to the Basilica of Sacre Coeur, which is straight through the heart of Paris. The driver is still unknown to this day, because Lelouch was never able to obtain a permit to close the streets. The driver, who Lelouch told officials was an F1 racer, went over the speed limit and blew off many red lights. When this film was first shown, Lelouch was arrested, and because of this, the footage has spent many years underground before it began to resurface on DVD a few years ago. Lelouch used a new technology of the time, a gyro stabilized camera mount, in order to mount the camera on the car. The problem with this is that the technology of the time only allowed for a ten minute film with this mount. Lelouch told his driver to rush because of this time limit, and the video itself is only about nine minutes.

Yeah I thought the ending was pretty sweet as well. I just love listening to the roar of the engine, and squeeling tires.

I think he runs like 14 red lights too. Pretty damn awesome.

I was ready to jump into this thread with guns blazing to argue for Ronin, but that was definitely the coolest driving scene!
