Video of driving in Paris traffic circle

For a change of pace, I thought I would post a video report of navigating the traffic circle in Paris a the Arc de Triomphe:

Twice around Paris in two minutes

I've driven this a few times. It's shockingly easy. Far easier than it looks when you are a pedestrian watching the traffic go around.

Wikipedia says the car driven was a Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 but that the sound was actually from a Ferrari 275 and dubbed in. it would have been more interesting if Lelouch had actually driven the Ferrari IMHO

I can only guess at the moral outrage over this, even 33 years ago

I first saw that film in the 70s. It was a short feature before the main one at one of the local art houses. It's even more vivid on a large screen and the audience was gasping.

I just "re-discovered" it a few years on line. You can buy it on DVD.
