Amazing! Whole city closed, petrol head delight!



Surprised it didn't wake the neighbours, not a soul in sight!

DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

P.S. Do I see GoPro being used?

The driving is superb, but how do you clear out a WHOLE city? nobody even looking out a window or round a street corner, must have been a little noisy!

Like any film, it is shot in sections (scenes), and then cleverly edited together to look like one long uninterupted event.

Probably shot over several weeks

Makes sense now, but there seem to be very large totally clear sections, I wonder if they just delivered a load of doughnuts to the local police station to keep them busy for a bit

You have a very good point there, and it would be cheaper than employing a CGI expert replicate empty streets
