Holy Real Life Gran Turismo, Batman!

It’s a wonder no one was killed. Apparently, a French filmmaker enlisted the help of an F1 driver in August 1978 to make an incredible film of a speed run through the streets of Paris in a Ferrarri 275 GTB. The driver apparently hit speeds of close to 140 mph on open streets, as the filmmaker couldn’t obtain a permit from the Paris authorities for the run, so you’ll see several pedestrians leaping to get out of the way of the speeding car, as well as multiple red lights blown through, one-way streets reverse-traversed and a whole host of nifty driving tricks.
