Hoonivercinema: The Beverly Hills Cop II Intro Sequence

The second installment to the Beverly Hills Cop movie series has one of my favorite title sequences. As Axel Foley, Eddie Murphy takes his Ferrari 328 GTS to work through Detroit morning traffic, accompanied by a Bob Seger soundtrack. There are Ferrari engine noises, there’s some inspiring driving and there’s also a number of continuity issues (count the times the 328 is replaced by a 308).

When I was a kid, I almost wore out my VHS copy of the film just rewinding the sequence back and watching it again, then repeating. Got to love YouTube.

Make the jump to see the clip again. It has been a while, hasn’t it?

The sequence runs from about 2:30 ’till 4:48.

By the way, the rest of the clip is in Italian. Got to love YouTube.
