The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale may be largely Italian and as red as Enzo Ferrari's schnoz after a Chianti bender, but it's likely a Frenchman who inspired this new Lamborghini promo video. It appears to be a stylized take on Claude Lelouch's C'etait un Rendezvous.

But where Lelouch kept to a single point of view — from the front bumper of his Mercedes — Lamborghini's send-up adds other camera angles, various leggy models lounging by the roadside and a quick stop for gas — all to set up the tag line, "Life is a Race." Lelouch laughs Frenchly at such cinematic flourishes — hauh hauh!
