WhichCar Weekly podcast episode 60 now live

The good, the bad, and just the right amount of ugly in this week’s chat about cars in film

Peter Brock - over the top

Following our conversation and excitement surrounding the remake of the cult classic film C’etait Un Rendezvous, the WhichCar Weekly team assemble to review the Grand Rendezvous homage now that it’s out in the open.

Did director Claude Lelouch expertly recreate the magic of the original? Was the use of a Ferrari this time around adding to the intensity? Was Monaco an even more stunning backdrop to this feat of world class driving compared with Paris? You’ll have click play and listen in to find out.

Or: You could read Andy’s excellent review here.

Next up we turn the chat to another brand-funded car story with Aston Martin’s three-part promo to welcome its four-door Rapide. If you wanted an example of one of the worst and cripplingly unwatchable car flicks to ever muddy your screens, look no further.

Andy, Dan and returning WhichCar editor Tim pick apart this automotive abomination with all the mercy of a pride of hungry lions. Frankly it deserved nothing less.

But from just about the most shockingly bad car films, Tim introduces one of the very best car docos to have dropped in decades - and it’s about an Australian icon.

Brock - Over the Top looks at the life of one of Australia’s most loved but controversial motorsport figures, and the boys are suitably impressed. Out next month, the WCW team highlight what makes this story brilliant and no spoiler alert necessary
