"On an August morning in 1978, French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a gyro-stabilized camera to the bumper of a Ferrari 275 GTB and had a friend, a professional Formula 1 racer, drive at breakneck speed through the heart of Paris. No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit."

I'm very impressed with this "mashup" that combines a video of the film Lelouch shot that morning with a live Google Map that tracks the route in realtime. (You just have to click a start button for the map at the four-second point in the video. See page for details.)

Warning: loud driving sounds may perplex your coworkers.
