Here's a link to 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 vintage race-cars out of storage, flew them around the world, and filmed them running through the streets of Rome, Rio, New York, Hong Kong and Monaco.

No CGI - these are real cars on real streets.

The best part is the sound (turn it UP!) From the basso profundo notes of the early, front-engine era, each scene cuts to a later and later generation of Ferrari, ending with the banshee-wail of a modern F1 car. The sounds alone bring a tear to the eye.

Yes, thanks for posting. But I have seen this once . . . recently . . in the US. Maybe during the Super Bowl?
So maybe more of a worldwide campaign for Shell? Just saw in a report suggesting that Bahrain might be canceled this year that worldwide viewers of F1 is something like 750million!
