  • Shell commercial

    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 liters and 14,000 RPM ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_kwx...eature=related

    THAT IS FOOOKING SWEET!!!!!!

    I had goose bumps for most of the vid.

    One of my customers restores vintage race cars, grand-am type and then takes them racing. Awesome collection.

      The closest high reving gas engine I own would be my chainsaws, and I love my chainsaws. Amazing how those cars can hold a rain slick road at such speeds and curves! Exhilarating to watch, imagine driving one of those machines?
