Man, what is it with Paris and all the cool movies involving races in the street? C'était un Rendezvous, Ronin, the latest Gran Turismo 5 promo, and now this race between a Porsche 911 GT3 and a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. What does Paris have that makes it so special?
Sure Paris is picturesque, filled with tight streets that make speeds look even faster than they are, and has a bountiful selection of rich people with cool cars and a desire to show off, both in fiction and in reality. You know what other city has all that? New York City. Yet the last truly great NYC car chase we can think of was in The French Connection—39 years ago. (Plus, it's still connected to France! Literally!) We think it's time for someone to make a movie with a proper tire-squealing, driver-dueling chase scene here in the Big Apple. Like the video below, but better. (Or at least in HD.)
