C'etait un Rendezvous is a legendary film with a very simple premise – a man drives very quickly to be with the woman he loves, careening through the streets of Paris with a blatant disregard for things like road signs, speed limits and pigeons. This film, from South African director Seagram Pearce, has a similar but much more law-abiding plot.

An unnamed racer arrives a track, gets his safety gear on, and zips around at the wheel of a KTM X-Bow. All the while, a beautiful woman watches on, with the driver finishing the film alongside his leading lady.

Take a look below for the stylized, beautifully filmed piece.

      Awful it was shot like a music video choppy, cutting from scene to scene don't waste your time.

      So what it's saying is that I'm not getting laid because I don't drive an X-Bow?

      Wow, since we are on an automotive blog, I figure I would cut to the chase. To see a car, go to 0:40 To see a car actually moving, go to 1:52

      This would have been a better video if it was the girl who was the one who takes off the helmet at the end.

      Yea ok. Last time I've seen girls look like that just watching at the track, they're either with their husbands/boyfriends or were the grid girls.

      Glad I'm not the only one here who disagree with the author of this post. Comparing C'├ętait un rendez-vous to this is blasphemy. This look like it was edited by a MTV intern on crack. I really don't see how it compare to Lelouch one take, romantic setting, edge of your seat actual street racing and simple punchy ending. Serioulsy, even Stalone race movie is better that this advert.

        They didn't have dubstep and copious lens flare in "Rendezvous"?

      AUTOBLOG, if I make a video of me driving my 1999 Ford Taurus around a track and my girlfriend meeting me in the pits, will you post it here on the blog?

      I will take the girl. She is way more attractive, probably faster, and maybe even lower maintenance.
