Chased by French police, Ethan passes in front of the Arc de Triomphe in a rather unusual manner. Tom Cruise does something unique, and of course, forbidden, by driving against traffic around the famous Etoile traffic circle. The area was privatized for a period of two hours on a Sunday morning, very early for the film crew. A total of 70 vehicles, driven by professional stunt men were used to film this sequence. Just to make it a little more complex, it had to be done with no bumps or dents as the main actor wasn’t wearing any protection while driving at 180 km/h!
