Like dashing fellow French actor Alain Delon, Belmondo has always been inordinately fond of fast cars.
In 1962, Paris Match photographed the star of Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless at the wheel of his Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet clocking 125 mph.
Note the perfectly pitched windblown look, a trademark of the man who came to be known as France’s answer to Steve McQueen.
Belmondo, who fathered his fourth child at the age of 70, is still making movies, picking up Playboy bunnies and no doubt driving like a bat out of hell.
À votre santé, monsieur…
