Racing Through Paris at 140mph in a Ferrari

by Cameron Schaefer on June 18, 2008

I know this has nothing to do with my blog, but it is definitely one of the coolest things I’ve seen a while.  Here’s a description of the film from

“A short film from 1976 where a camera is mounted on the front of a Ferrari driving at up to 140mph through Paris. The film was made by Claude Lelouch, who was arrested when he showed the film to the public. This file is large, and will take some time to load.”

For the Google generation, it starts really getting good around 4 min.  Here’s the wikipedia entry for the film.  Enjoy!

@ Brian,

I know, it was definitely one of the coolest things I had seen in a while…who hasn’t wanted to do that at one point?

Cameron -

Sara and I are planning a trip to France this fall. I think I will rent a Ferrari and do the same thing. That was cool! Good talking with you today!

More exciting than a Jason Bourne movie cuz it was real! Thanks for sharing it, Cameron! By the way, I read on the Wikipedia article that it was probably a Mercedes with a Ferrari soundtrack. Either way, it doesn’t take away from from my enjoyment of it. I was on the edge of my seat and scared for the other drivers and pedestrians the whole time (since I already knew the driver lived to get arrested from your article)!
