COMEDIAN AND TV HOST Jay Leno has put together a tribute to the classic short film C'etait un Rendezvous, but whereas the 1970s-era original was shot on the streets of Paris, Leno has chosen to set his on the roads surrounding Los Angeles.

Rendezvous was a nine-minute film that featured an unknown car driving at high speed (and often going the wrong direction on one-way streets, driving on kerbs, etc.) through Paris in the early morning.

Shot in a single continuous take with the camera mounted low on the car's front bumper, Rendezvous is still hailed as a must-see for any car enthusiast.

Leno's homage to the classic short film doesn't include any of the illegal maneuvers that characterised the original, but it does include some fantastic footage of a red Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG motoring along some of LA's more famous roads. Roads like Mulholland Drive, Sunset Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon.

Unlike the original, there's multiple changes in camera angle as well as some dialogue from Leno himself. Leno's six-minute short film may not have the same pure qualities of Rendezvous, but it more than makes up for it with some great footage, a great car and a great soundtrack.

Speaking of which, turn up your speakers - the sound of the SLS AMG's 6.2 litre V8 is truly something to behold.
