In an early, flaming morning of a Parisian August where the night's dimming lights battle with a new day, a mighty mechanical roar breaks the silence. Undoubtedly, this is the unmistakable sound of a Ferrari 275GTB's V-12 engine, revving and shifting up gears, as it furiously enters the tunnel at Porte Dauphine. Likewise, as it exits flat out up on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, the driver aims for the Place de la Concorde and the Palais Garnier, down-shifting in a mad dash inside the centre's heart. As the car enters in squealing tyres the narrow and cobbled slippery roads, scattering pigeons and petrified pedestrians across the way with its mighty noise, clearly, 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 blind hairpin that could turn one's hair grey remaining, the intrepid driver reaches the end of this high-adrenaline ride. But who's waiting at the finish line?
An Unforgettable Exhilarating Ride.

confirmed on his official website in March 2006 that he was driving, and it was a 6.9 litre Mercedes. See more
