    Can you just imagine the red tape, permits and cost to pull offthis commercial?

    Ostensibly, they're selling gasoline, but the cars used in the video steal the show.

    Ferrari pulled several of their race cars from various ages out of storage, flew them around the world and filmed them running through the streets of Rome, Rio, New York, Hong Kong,Honolulu, Stanwell Park and Monaco.

    No computer graphics, these are the original cars on the original streets.

    The best part is the sound from the basso-profundo notes of the early, front-engine era, each scene cuts to a later generation, ending with the wail of a modern F1 car.

    Even if you're not a petrolhead, this video will stir the soul.

    There's just something about 3 litres and 14,000 RPM!

    Make sure you turn the volume right up. :)

    And I remember well, (& miss) the 3 litre V10’s, reaching close to 19,000RPM in Melbourne. Not possible trackside, without earplugs, as it was actually painful. Infact, Williams exceeded 19,000rpm during one race. :cool:

    Even staying 15 minutes away in Armidale, on the race weekend, you could hear the engines sing from the bedroom! :D

    The drivers were Ferrari test drivers except in Aus (Stanwell park sea bridge). Apparently that Ferrari was driven by a client.

    Alas, no, I am short sighted. Glasses must be worn when driving. My camera diopters are set to -3 so I don't need to wear glasses when photgraphing.

    Of course the plus side is that things close up are easily seen or read. Like the eyes of an ECS stairing you in the face when she is sitting on your lap.
