A short French film from 1976 called C'était un rendez-vous ("I Have a Date") probably invokes smoking and existentialism, not car stunts. However, the film is actually eight minutes of stunt driving through the streets of Paris. The film was completed in only one take, and it was filmed using a camera mounted on the bumper of a Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9.
In the film, Lelouch drives at high speeds through Paris, passing some famous landmarks along the way. He goes down one-way streets the wrong way, crosses the center line, doesn't stop for red lights, and blows by pedestrians before finally arriving and picking up a woman for a date. All in all, it's a pretty exciting and enthralling eight minutes of film, though one that could've been avoided simply by getting ready fifteen minutes earlier.
The stunt is even more insane since Lelouch did this on open and public streets, and didn't come close to having permission to perform the stunt. He was supposedly arrested after the screening of the film, and he claimed the real culprit was an F1 driver whom he refused to identify. In the end, since the driver is never seen in the film, the charges against Lelouch were dropped because of a lack of evidence. However, years later in a documentary, Lelouch admitted that he really was the driver, because he's both fearless and sneaky.
