Wow, just plain dumb. But if you want to see crazy, look for a French video called "Le Rendevous" (sp my French isn't great, it's ron-day-voo, but I know it isn't spelled like that) This dude goes from one end of Paris to the other in 9 minutes at dawn in a ferrari or something and he is in 5th or 6th the whole time, going well over 90-100mph. First time I saw it I didn't think it was real, the driving is so crazy. At one point he jumps a curb and barely squezzes down a sidewalk to avoid a garbage truck that nearly takes him out. Hands down the most insane driving video I have ever seen.

Thats actually one of the Getaway in ??? videos if I'm not mistaken. I know what your talking about I've seen it too. At least the Ferarri was alone...

LOL, I think you spelled it right... not sure. My French is non existant :lol

There was alot of contraversy about that video, I remember something about it being staged.... can't recall for sure.

Imo thats much worse than doing that on a bike, at least on bikes we have the size difference to squeeze in and out, and we arent throwing a 3000lb+ missle at peoples rear ends, driving like that in a car is WAY more dangerous..

It had to be staged. The CIVIC was in front for most of the vid ;)

The whole video is somewhat of a mystery to me. I got it from a friend in Austraila. The site it was at claims its a BMW M-3 ... Somehow it didn't seem to sound like a straight 6. Sounded more like a V-8, especially when he got on it and didn't downshift. Never heard a 6 do that deep down moan like that... The vents on the dash arent much of a clue except the remind me of the inside of a F body GM for some reason... guessing here.

Hmmm, could very well be right, now I think about it I had a video of a BMW Race car with a V-8 that was pretty darn amazing. I posted it at RacingFlix about 3-4 years ago when I was a mod there. I'll see if it's still around and put a link to it if it is.

Another pretty amazing car is this Porsche. http://www.itsfun.nu/itsfun2_summer_2003.avi Someone spent a HUGE amount of $$$ building this car.

M3 do sound pretty deep for a six. They also have tons of power on the lower end

I hope those drivers were pros to be trying stuff like that. Extremely dangerous driving nonetheless. Nice vid man!

Wasn't a Getaway in Stockholm video. The only ones they've done are a Porsche (1), Supra VS Cosworth (2), NSX (3), Corvette VS NSX (4).

I think its either a mini cooper, or an audi wagon in front of them, and they might be inside an audi? Engine sounds like a v-6.

My 1984 BMW M Sport E28

Just a old pic of my 1984 M-3 E28 that I had in Germany back in 98. The car was bad with over 120000 Ks on it. The outside was in very good shape the right side had a softball size dent on the side from someone kicking the car before I got it. It had a inline six all german specs (that's why I didn't bring her back stateside with me). I had her well over 220 Kph / 136 Mph. And yes she did sound mean and she did pull chicks! Got to love the back ground. Dec 21 the day I bought her. Mannhiem germany> Can't wait to get back! See my "Does anyone know what this is?" thread and you'll know what I'm talken about! And yes I blanked out the tag seeing it was a old USAEUR tag!

Yes, thats right on the mark with the GIS team.
There was some "copycat" stuff going on and it was in France with a Ferarri.... That much I remember, done by a couple of people or a video production company attempting to cash in on the "getaway" thing... there was a bunch of "speculation" as to wether it was real or staged. I searched for the thing but no luck...
France had it's share of "getaway" runs on the Paris Ring Road I think it's called..... where Pascal was his name? "The Black Knight" died attempting to break his own record.... riding like Ghostrider through traffic..
