2007 Ferrari Shell Commercial

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

Not to mention the problems of clearing all those streets and roads!

Here's a link to a Shell commercial shown in Europe. Ostensibly, they're selling petrol, 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 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 gear head, this video will stir the soul. There's just something about 3 litres and 14,000 RPM!!
