Shell commercial shown in Europe
Celebrated Their 60-Year Relationship with Ferrari.

Can you just imagine the red tape, permits and cost to pull off this commercial?

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

Ferrari pulled several of their 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.

No computer graphics—these are the original cars on the original streets.

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 petrolhead, this video will stir the soul.

There’s just something about 3 litres and 14,000 RPM!

    Very cool. I have been to a few of those locations. My head would have turned toward the sound too.

    Exquisite sounds to wake up to every morning!

    How much cooler were the 60s and 70s car’s sounds?!?!? A bit like most things from that period…
