Pretty sweet!  Shame it's constricted to city streets, needs a proper flogging in the country.  I was checking out the modern electronic thing down low, and the gauge to the right.

Yeah, yeah sure.  But could you leave it unattended in a Walmart parking lot?  Unless you're one of THOSE guys and park across 4 parking stalls.  Might be up for a good "keying" though.

Nice video. It's amazing how empty London streets are. This was clearly shot at the peak of the Corona lockdown.

I was immediately reminded of the scene from Vanilla Sky :D

Some of those streets seemed barely wider than the car!  It would scare me to death to drive a car like that on the street.  But that's what it was built for.

It is a sequence of a dream Tom Cruise's character has, but it is overall an unusual movie, to say the least... Not the easiest to watch and understand, but if you don't mind something different, I recommend it :D

It is actually an American remake, directed by Cameron Crowe, of a Spanish movie called "Abres los ojos" (Open Your Eyes) by Alejandro Amenabar.

There are a few other classics in it, apart from this Ferrari GTO, which is, unfortunately, a replica (at least according to info available online), albeit quite a decent looking one:

I walked through Times Square this week and it ALMOST could have been a scene from that movie.  Super creepy...never seen it so empty and quiet.  

The Topless Cowgirl and the Naked Cowboy where still there though, hustling away as normal....
