Storyline

It is an early, flaming morning of August and Paris slowly begins to wake up. In the stillness, where the dimming lights of the city battle with the coming of the day, a mighty mechanical roar breaks the silence. Without a doubt, it is the unmistakable and distinct sound of a V-12 engine that belongs to a Ferrari 275GTB, revving and shifting up gears as it enters furiously the tunnel at Porte Dauphine. In the same fashion, as it exits up on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, flat out, the driver aims for the Place de la Concorde heading for the Palais Garnier, in a mad dash down-shifting inside the heart of the city. In squealing tyres, the mighty noise is scattering pigeons and petrified pedestrians across the way, while the car enters narrow, slippery cobbled roads with early morning drivers. Now, it is clear enough that this heart-pounding, nerve-wracking ride continues its course towards the Place Pigalle. With the final destination at the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur and with a last ...

Heart stopping.
15 May 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

According to rumor, it's the famous racecar driver Jaques Lafitte who drives this car as it speeds insanely through the near empty streets of Paris at 200km/h one early morning. Veering for cars and buses, almost hitting pedestrians and pigeons on every corner, this is as close to a real snuff movie you'll ever get. Very little is known about the car and it's driver. But I can assure you this: It was in no way sanctioned or produced with the cooperation of the police. It's far too risky for that. But what a ride! An absolute must see for any film or racing fan. Brilliant!
