Rendezvous- L.A. edition w/ Jay Leno

Remember Rendezvous? the Claude Lelouch-filmed  speed run through the streets of Paris in 1978? We talked about it once briefly because the sheer bravado of the stunt, coupled with the setting and perspective truly engrossed us. Watch it here if you haven’t seen it yet.

Today Jalopnik put this video up of Jay Leno mapping out his own rendezvous course in his backyard through the hills of Los Angeles in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. While the video isn’t super exciting, it is fun to watch, the route itself is pretty interesting, and the engine soundtrack is phenomenal. Check out the video below, and after that, we took the liberty of putting up a map of the route in case you’re in the L.A. area and want to tackle it safely and legally see it yourselves. Looks like the starting point is where Mulholland and Coldwater Canyon meet.

What’s your Rendezvous run? let us know.

UPDATE: Autoblog has the same video up, along with a “making of” video. check it.
