Claude Lelouch's "C´etait un rendezvous"

I heard about this movie recently and easily sat through the 8 minutes high speed driving through the streets of Paris. The film is a great example of beautiful motoring and even though Jay Leno was able to make his The Fast and The Famous video early in the morning he wouldn't be able to do this through Paris today.

The film was made in one take with a camera mounted on the bumper of a Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9. A F1 driver friend of the director did the driving and it is claimed he hit over 200km/h. Whatever the top speed it's a beautiful film and a great drive. Definitely on a par with the car chase in Ronan which I think is one of the best ever. 

Sit back, turn the sound up and enjoy. Look for the pigeons and the garbage trucks.
