Jay Leno: “Rendezvous” in Los Angeles

Posted in AMG, driving, Mercedes Benz by Kurt Ernst | March 5th, 2010 | 1 Response |

Just in case you’ve never heard of the film, “Rendezvous”, I’ll recap it for you: it’s nine minutes of pure mayhem, as an anonymous driver hauls ass through the deserted streets of Paris in an unseen Mercedes. A Ferrari was later dubbed in, since the Mercedes was deemed too boring.

Jay Leno decided to pay homage to the original film with a politically-correct-but-still- above-the-speed-limit run down Mulholland Drive across Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles. It’s worth watching, but nowhere near as good as the original. I suspect Jay Leno would prefer to avoid jail time and felony convictions.

And Jay, if you’re reading this, some of your lines through the corners were a little sloppy. Give me a call and I’ll be happy to work with you.

  1. When the AMG SLS was first released, I hated it. Thought it looked like a clown shoe. Then I heard its exhaust note in this video. It’s absolutely bat shit insane. A DOHC European V-8 that sounds like a 327 with a lumpy cam? Wow. Just wow.

    Of course, it still looks like a clown shoe.
