We think of policemen as stern, sober people. But some of them are absolutely nuts about cars, just like us regular folks. Just take this fellow as an example, who decided to stop in the middle of the street, whip out his Samsung phone and filmed a blue Ferrari while it was reversing into parking spot.
The only problem is the policeman is standing in the middle of the road, which forces traffic to stop. It all happened in the town of town of Juan-les-Pins, located on the famous Cote d'Azure between Nice and Cannes. It's a major tourist destination where expensive cars are a common sight.

The funny thing is he's filming the wrong car. Unless there's a high-status French celebrity in that blue Ferrari 458 Italia, there's no point in giving it a second glance. However, one of the many cars which are forced to stop is the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss.

In case you're unfamiliar with this older model of Anglo-German exotic, it's one of only 75 units built in 2009 to celebrate the Mercedes-Benz SLR 300 from 1955 and one of the most successful divers who raced it, the famous Stirling Moss.

It's about five times more expensive than the Ferrari 458, not to mention the speedster looks are to die for. Maybe they should teach supercar culture to policemen on the French riviera.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
