Not the first time that a Ferrari darted undisturbed through the city streets. Perhaps some will remember the short film entitled C’tait un rendez-vous. 1976 film, in which Claude Lelouch resists, who later turns out to be the protagonist of the film, presumably launched a Ferrari 275 GTB in a completely deserted Paris just before dawn. Later on, the mystery was revealed by Claude Lelouch himself: the car in question was actually a Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 and the sound of the Ferrari engine was dubbed. Apart from anecdotes, which has become a cult among fans, it is also a source of inspiration for other short films developed along the lines of C’tait un rendez-vous. Like the one titled The Run shot along the streets of Prague, in which a Nissan 350Z runs undisturbed, or Re-Rendezvous starring a Mustang GT, which has Paris as its location again.
