Firstly, I would like to thank all of the Petrolicious team for giving us so much great content every week.
My grandfather always spoke to me about this particular car, the one that made his childhood when he went to the “12h de Reims”. Seeing this again almost made him cry.
I just wanted to ask you if you could search the title of the two musics played in this film for me please… Shazam can’t tell me anything
Thank you for your answer
My grandfather and me
Great film, and I’ve seen him down in Bisbee, AZ with some other $1M+ vintage Jags so I know he gets out and drives it! Please tell us the road you filmed on- I’m sure it’s in Arizona and I want to drive it.
Just past Tortilla Flat on Apache Trail.
Very nice and well done piece. When you have a subject matter as important as the D-type there just isn’t much more to say. Just watch, listen and admire. So refreshing to see an owner that wants to drive their car as well. Bravo.
This is the kind of videos, why I came at Petrolicious. Enjoyed it, great work! That man looks very sympathetically. An his car is just awesome!
Another fine piece of work. Using the idea that less is more when editing, the interview interwoven with the car and it’s sweet engine notes is the music I want to hear most. The locations of the drive shots free of power lines and filled with wonderful curves are stunning. Cars are meant to be driven, not just parked in garages and museums, so his driving and sharing the car with us auto enthusiasts is to be admired and emulated. Keep up the fine work!
Thank you. And well said. I would say it was as much a pleasure to shoot as it is to watch.
I concur with all nine comments so far as those have expressed their thoughts on this car ad film so well. Thank you to all.
An amazing photo!
A very emotional story and a very humble owner.
Nice film petrolicious!
My own D-Type…(sad, I know, but there you go)
That sound. If only he’d had the space to let it rev just a bit longer. Best engine noise since the film of the GTO.
Oh my goodness. That sent shivers down my spine. One of my favourite all time cars. Good on you Terry.
Thank you Petrolicious. For, me one of your best.
Deserted Arizona mountain roads … the perfect setting for the exceptional D-Type. Even if the shape never appealed to me but the construction was pathbreaking.
Smart photography and subtle score add up to a well crafted clip.
I saw this car with a friend years back. What a pleasure to see it on film.
One of the best shapes ever created by mankind.
Whatta car! A warrior!!
One of the best Tuesday films in a while. Thanks.
