The story of these videos is that a section of streets in downtown Los Angeles was closed for a commercial shoot for the Project Gotham Racing video game. The commercial features a Tesla Roadster, a Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, a Ferrari F430, a Yamaha motorcycle and our favorite, a 1963 Split Window Coupe Corvette. The cars were driven by professionals, but were “supposedly” driving in a manner that was to reflect the skills of everyday drivers. In other words, there were several near misses in the intersection and at one point the Ferrari (unintentionally, I believe) hit the retaining wall.

Watch these videos and then tell me driving like this wouldn’t be a blast. That Sting Ray’s exhaust reverberating off the downtown walls of is awesome!
