Snapshot 2013: Daft Punk and a good reason to brake
Back in 2006, French disco duo Daft Punk made the hitherto largely ignored Ferrari 412 – for one moment –the coolest classic on the planet, thanks to their short film Electroma. At the end of 2013, the most famous helmet-wearers since Darth Vader were reunited with their black Italian beauty: together with the model Saskia de Brauw, they were photographed for ‘M’, the magazine from French newspaper Le Monde. Behind the camera was no less a figure than Peter Lindberg, the master of black and white elegance. The images are, of course, outstanding, but one thing puzzles us: is the Ferrari surrounded by sea-spray, or is it the vapour from a 12-cylinder Italian diva boiling over in protest against another seemingly eternal on-set delay?
