    Amendment October 2011: A visitor has corrected the description of this clip. The first car seen is not a BMW Elva, it is a British Elva with a BMW engine. The Aston Martin seen is not a C.B.5, it is an Aston Martin DB5. Next, the car described as a "Wolsey 610" is a Wolseley 6/110. Following that comes a Singer Chamois, not "Shamois". The grill seen is of a Singer Vogue, not "Vode". The lady seen with the Ferrari is former British rally driver Sheila van Damm, not "van Dam".
