You mean this bit, marra?



Valle d'Aosta, Italy

"The first shot of the film is of the bridge at the southern end of the St. Bernard valley, north of
Aosta: The bridge that serves the new toll road that goes through the mountain. Successive shots are
of the Miura working its way up the old road in the St. Bernard valley towards the Great St. Bernard
pass. Then the Miura comes down the same road (but higher up) and clearly passes a no. 32 mileage
marker. Filming is then continued on another road - the road to La Thuile, south of Courmayeur,
where the Miura crashes in the tunnel. This tunnel has since been extended with a gallery. "


Other Locations nicked from the web are...

Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland

Does anybody know where the opening scene's where shot and which route?

Currently planning a trip across Europe.
Hey, I don't know if you know, but the old Fiat factory in Turin (where they race around on the roof-top track) is now a rather plush hotel.

I'm planning the trip too, so I've had to re-assess my budget to include a couple of nights in the 5* LeMeridan Lingotto. You can jog around the track apparently, wonder if they'll let me up there in the MCS? :D :D
