A Beautiful Car Moment In An Unlikely Film

Everyone remembers the start of the Italian Job; the Miura working its way up the old road in the St. Bernard valley towards the Great St. Bernard pass and the road to La Thuile, south of Courmayeur, where the Miura crashes in the tunnel. It's a great non-car chase car moment in film. Well I've found another in a completely unexpected place.
Silver Streak.
Yeah, that's right, the Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor comedy.
Beautiful cinematography accompanied by a gorgeous Henry Mancini-composed soundtrack.

Of course everyone who's seen it remembers it for this (and the yellow X1/9 of course):
