Paris from a Ferrari at 140 MPH

In 1978, French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a camera to the front of a Ferrari 275 GTB . He and a professional Formula 1 driver drove through the heart of Paris at insane speeds—Porte Dauphine, through the Louvre, to the Basilica of Sacre Coeur.

In the film, the driver runs several red lights, almost hits a few pedestrians and drives the wrong way on several one-way streets. Crazy stuff.
