Here's a Shell commercial shown in Europe. Ostensibly, they're selling gasoline, but the cars used in the video steal the show.
Ferrari pulled several of their original 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.
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. The sounds alone bring a tear to the eye and electricity to the surface of your skin. Even if you're not a gearhead, this video will stir the soul. There's just something about 3 liters, 14,000 RPM, and a carb for every cylinder!
