Here's a link to a Shell commercial shown in Europe . Ostensibly they're selling gasoline, but the Ferrari's 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 and Monaco . No CGI - 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 and later generation, ending with the banshee-wail of a modern F1 car. The sounds alone bring a tear to the eye. Even if you're not a gearhead, this video will stir the soul.
There's just something about 3 litres and 14,000 RPM that's music to my ears!!!
