Driving at it's best, and so good to watch and don't you just wish you had the sort of money that would allow you to do the same because I do.

I don't believe the video is completely real.

...there was an ad not to log ago that had that sort of driving on the roof of a skyscraper, with the car manoeuvring right to the edge of the roof and beyond. It looked as if it was filmed in one take, but the driving was done on a separate indoor warehouse studio track, and computer jiggery pokery was used to stitch it into a realistic looking one take shot.

Well it wasn't done in one take that is for sure, when you look at some of the tyre marks on the road you can work out that some of the action had been done at least 4 times before.

But it still looks good.

Think what the top WRC drivers are like, Mr Block could not keep up with them when he tried rallying.

Quickbeam - It appears that the film was shot over several days with parts of the city being closed at appropriate times at a huge expense. The whole was then edited to make one film. Rehearsals took place in mock up locations. Gleaned from reading several internet sites.
