"The Rendezvous"
A Morning Ride through Paris in a Ferrari

    On an August morning in 1978, 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 at breakneck speed through the heart
of Paris. The film was limited for technical reasons to 10 minutes; the course
was from Porte Dauphine, through the Louvre, to the Basilica of Sacre Coeur.
No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit.
    The driver completed the course in about 9 minutes, reaching nearly
140mph/225kmh in some stretches. The footage reveals him running real red
lights, nearly hitting real pedestrians, and driving the wrong way up real
one-way streets.
    Upon showing the film in public for the first time, Lelouch was arrested.
He has never revealed the identity of the driver.
