Rush Movie
« on: 12 October 2012, 01:09 AM »
Hi Guys n Gals,

I'm a bit excited by the upcoming movie called 'Rush' which is about James Hunt and Niki Lauda of F1 fame.  What really interests me is that Hunt owned at least one 6.9 and used to drive it rather rapidly.  I'm really hoping Ron Howard (who's the Director) stays true to Hunt's story and includes a 6.9 in the film....  Apparently Hunt had a several encounters with the ladies on the back seat!  The movie is due for release in 2013.  ;D

Here's a link to a forum featuring Hunts car on blocks out the front of his house:
