Ferrari SF90 Stradale will star in a remake of the famous French filmMay 24, 2020
One of the greatest automobile films will be continued.
Although there will be no Formula 1 racing this weekend in Monaco, since the Monaco Grand Prix of 2020 was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sound of a Ferrari will still be heard on the streets of this sacred track.
Ferrari plans to shoot a sequel to one of the greatest automotive films of all time, C’était Un Rendez-Vous (Date), on the Monaco street circuit, which marks the first French filming since the start of the pandemic lock.
Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc will pilot the new SF90 hybrid supercar along the F1 closed circuit in Monaco. The SF90 is Ferrari’s latest engineering marvel, introducing the brand’s first production hybrid product. See Leclerc driving in an empty Monaco, of course, will be an interesting sight.
If you are not familiar with the brilliant movie C’était Un Rendez-Vous, then you should spend 8 minutes to watch this sensational movie. The filmmaker Claude Lelouch wanted to make a film about a high-speed trip in Paris, showing many of the city’s famous attractions.
Claude asked the French government to close the roads so that he could make his film, but his request was rejected. This did not stop Claude, who still decided to make his film, starting his high-speed trip around the city on an early August morning, when many Parisians were on summer vacation.
To create this film, Claude had no GoPros and friends with drones; he tied a 35mm camera to the front bumper of his Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9. This unstabilized raw material captured a unique moment in Paris during an extremely illegal trip through a virtually deserted city. Only two people knew about Claude’s planned, first mate and his girlfriend.
Just before he hit the road, Claude called his girlfriend and told her that in 10 minutes she should be in Sacre Coeur to appear in the film. How does Ferrari fit into all this? Claude dubbed the sound by inserting the sound of a Ferrari 275GTB. Since you cannot see the subject, it is easy to assume that it was indeed a Ferrari tearing through the streets of Paris on that busy morning in August 1976.
