Hey guys,

Just thought I'd share. We filmed a commercial recently where we closed an airport runway to film running footage of a Ferrari 458.

I volunteered my Pathfinder. We attached a camera cage to the frame, crammed a film crew inside and chased the Ferrari up and down the runway/taxi way for about 5 hours using coordinated maneuvers.

I have to say that I was quite impressed with the Pathy's performance! We had a crew of 6 in the car and about 300 lbs of gear attached. We hit speeds of 100 mph and ripped around turns going about 60. The precision driver pumped the Airlift 1000 up all the way and just let 'er rip.

Here's the "Behind the Scenes" footage:

If you've never had the opportunity to load a V8 Pathfinder up with 6 adult men, take it onto a runway and floor it, I highly recommend it! Smile

Here's the final (the end is the best part): http://youtu.be/yGoe3XRi2wo
