Here's a video I had heard about a while back but never checked out, until today. I was listening to the Adam Carolla Show from yesterday and on the show they had a guy who broke the Cannonball Run cross country speed record by traveling from New York to LA in 39 hours (yes apparently the Cannonball Run is still in existence). During this segment they discussed this video and I searched it out and found it.

In this video you will see a Ferrari speeding through the streets of Paris. I mean SPEEDING through the streets. The car only slows down slightly for turns and early morning garbage trucks. The only sound you will hear is the revving engine and the squealing of tires. Oh, and maybe your heart. If you are a car guy or would like to see what it would be like to dirve with reckless abandon through the City of Love from a car's eye view than you should check it out.

It has to be fake. With the camera mounted low the asphalt and lines move by pretty quickly, but the cars and objects sitting still on the side streets aren't breezing by all that quickly.

Also, if you pay attention to the shifting the driver is pouring on the gas and running through 5 or 6 gears. In a Ferrari, if you are pushing it that hard in 5th or 6th gear, that's running that car at 175 or 180 mph in the city.

Slowing down from those speeds requires too much real estate.

It's a fake. The real thing is from Top Gear that I'm posting in about 5 minutes if I can find it.
