Rendevous – C’était un Rendez-vous – 1976
Long before youtube or DVDs, there was talk of a movie of a crazy guy driving his Ferrari at outrageous speeds one morning in Paris. I think the VHS tape was $69.99. You could order from the back of car magazines at that time. I was in 8th grade and could not justify spending the money on an 8 minute movie but I have been dying to see the video my whole life. My buddy reminded me of this movie which we were able to find again. I think only a handful of people like myself have not seen this video but here it is again for everyone to see. It is an insane drive through Paris at ridiculous speeds. He is seen driving on one way streets, across center lines, and even on the pedestrian pavement. I really dont think anyone could or should ever attempt this stunt again. Incredibly dangerous!
I always thought the car in the movie was a classic Ferrari but just read that he used a Mercedes Benz 450SEL 6.9 and dubbed the sounds from a Ferrari 275GTB. The movie was shot using a camera mounted on the bumper of the car.
What do you think?
