Crank it Up!

Shell Gas Commercial

Here's a Shell commercial shown in Europe.

Ostensibly, they're selling gasoline, but the cars used in the video steal the show.

Ferrari pulled several of their original race cars from various ages out of storage, flew them around the world, and filmed them running through the streets of Rome, Rio, New York, Hong Kong, Honolulu, and Monaco.

The best part is the sound - from the basso-profundo notes of the early, front-engine era, each scene cuts to a later generation, ending with the wail of a modern F1 car.

The sounds alone bring a tear to the eye. Even if you're not a gearhead, this video will stir the soul.

There's just something about 3 liters and 14,000 RPM!
