Video: Audi A8 W12 car chase in "From Paris with Love"

. Monday, June 14, 2010

If you haven't seen the movie "From Paris with Love" yet, you really should. Aside from non-stop, over-the-top action and John Travolta playing possibly the baddest-ass character of his career - there's car chase, starring none other than an Audi A8 W12 (D3). It's worth noting that the movie is written and produced by Luc Besson, who also wrote and produced the "Transporter" trilogy, a man who knows a thing or two about Audi A8 chase scenes.

We found a car-only edit of the chase on YouTube:

In our search for more information on this chase scene, we came across a really great behind-the-scenes featurette, documenting how the scene was filmed. Not only did the chase star an Audi A8 W12, but the camera car was an A4 Avant. Click here to watch the behind-the-scenes clip.

Also, for those of you saying "that looks like an S8." Yes, it does, but it's actually a W12 with what appears to be an optional 'Sport Plus' or 'Comfort Plus' styling package:
