    I know there will be back lash cause its a gasoline company, but I thought this was good.

    Here's a Shell commercial shown in Europe . They're selling gasoline, but the cars used in the video steal the show.

    Ferrari pulled several of their race cars from various ages 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 CGI -these are the original cars on the original 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!

    It was good to see these kind of cars still running. How ever I could get in to driving them. LOL That looks like fun.

    Ferraris have a sound all their own!
