1969: The Rivals – Kidston Productions (Youtube)
For my cash, it’s difficult to contend with a happy and wonderfully delivered video including vintage Italian games vehicles. Offering a soundtrack that is equivalent amounts of Morricone and carburated V12, this brilliant short highlights a carefree no holds barred fight between two of the unequaled symbols from Lamborghini and Ferrari, the Miura S and the 365 GTB/4 “Daytona,” separately. While you don’t need to know anything about vehicles to appreciate this video, a large number of you will perceive the drivers of every one of the legend vehicles as they settle a leaving contest in a way generally Italian. Likewise, the green/gold shading of the Miura is essentially next level.
