A Quiet Paris Drive – at 140 MPH (225 Kph)

The last time I was in Paris was as a 13 year old. The German bus driver was fast – just not this fast.
Coudal Partners linked to Jerry Kindall:

French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a gyro-stabilized camera to the bumper of a Ferrari 275 GTB and had a friend, a professional Formula 1 racer, drive him at breakneck speed through the heart of Paris.

It’s worth the time it takes to download the 34MB QuickTime file (unless, of course, you’re on dialup – then you just do it overnight). The drive is only "Quiet" if you turn your speakers down.

Buy the DVD here.

UPDATE: Ed Brenegar sent me the link to the Google Map of the Paris Route. And my DVD is on its way.
