Shell and Ferrari commercial(s)

Ferrari pulled several of their race cars from various eras 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. No computer graphics -these are the original cars on the real streets.
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.

Even if you're not a gearhead, this video will stir the soul.

There's just something about 3 liters and 14,000 RPM !

Turn up the speakers........enjoy!
