Is this the short film C'etait un Rendez-Vous?
I read some bits on it a while back - there are a lot of legends about it but the director said that he was driving the car at no more than about 60mph (the low camera gives an exaggerated feel of speed) and the engine noise was dubbed on afterwards, disappointingly. Still very impressive, though.
cars in Paris? Ronin - that's all you need watch.
I thought something was going wrong, if he was doing 140mph the other cars would have being doing about 120... It was evident he was only going about what looked like 70 and I thought he was keeping in a low gear revving its censored off at such a low speed.
Still a nice bit of footage!
