Shell Ferrari Commercial

Here's a link to a Shell commercial shown in Europe.
Ostensibly, 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 are awesome

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

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