The Gentleman’s Wager (and a few surprises)

A quiet game of bowls that turns into a gentleman’s wager: imagine you have 24 hours to repair a Delahaye 135 that’s been off the road for 40 years and drive it from southern Italy to Monaco. If you make it, the car is yours. A dream come true or a nightmare in the making?

Make or break

This short film (made to promote Johnnie Walker Blue Label) is packed full of surprises, such as a cast list that starts with Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini, but becomes far more unexpected as the minutes tick by. Look out for the helicopter pilot… not to mention the bloke who gives the car a push when things go wrong mechanically. The film is utterly ridiculous, tremendously good fun, and well worth 10 or 15 minutes of your time. 

Never one to turn down a challenge? You can find the perfect classic with which to race from Italy to Monaco in the Classic Driver Market.
