That is good news, being racing cars and James Garner fan.

Most of the GP cars in this film were made by (I think) Williams & Prichard using F2 chassis as a base. Excellent film though....

I 've got the DVD and added now pictures of better quality and also some new vehicles. We should think also about an other distribution of of stars for the cars: as JohnS correctly says above, the cars driven by the actors are fake F1 cars. So they shoud get a **** star rating and the real F1 cars only * star. An example:

Real F1 Ferrari:

Fake F1 Ferrari:

In a very short sceene, you can see on the left the real #17 F1 Ferrari during the Monaco GP, on right side the parc fermé of the film crew with all the fake F1 GP cars - among them the fake #17 Ferrari!

Sublime and impressive theme composed by Maurice Jarre (RIP) for this film, a lot excited.

Sorry to contradict 'mgisbert', but the car which Pete Aron (James Garner) drove in the film was not the Honda but was based on the new McLaren M2B
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McLaren_M2B Sadly, the new McLaren was unreliable (with the uncompetitive V8 Ford unit being replaced with a Serenissima unit), and most of the actual race scenes made use of other cars painted to represent the McLaren (white with a green stripe) including the Team Chamaco Collect BRM P261 of Bob Bondurant
The scene pictured in this link shows Aron (Garner) in an F3 car mocked-up to look like the McLaren. Link to "badgergp.com"

Actually the 'Yamura' in the pic on that link is a Lotus-Climax 33 from 1965 in disguise - MGM had 3 of them, one faked as a Ferrari which is only seen in the garage/street scene before the French GP, and an un-modified one which is glimpsed during in-car shots at Monza. Garner was the only actor who drove a 'real' F1, though MGM also had a real BRM P261 that was driven by Ginther, Rindt or Phil Hill doubling for Stoddard. Most of the staged shots were indeed filmed using the Lotus 20-based fakes.

Just watched this the other day.. WHAT A FANTASTIC MONUMENT TO FILM MAKING AND RACE CAR DRIVING (they even used a GT-40 as the cameraman's car with the legendary Phil Hill driving it!.. and 5 years later when Le Mans was made with Steve McQueen they again used a GT-40 as the camera car)
