The official trailer for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was recently filmed somewhere in Italy and it features just about the most awesome – an expensive – fake car chase we’ve ever seen.

To build cache for the brand, NFS decided to go all-out with the two vehicular protagonists, opting for two cars that are undoubtedly two of the most sought-after supercars this side of the solar system: the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and the Pagani Zonda Cinque.

The folks over at Teamspeed managed to scoop up photos of the filming of the trailer where the law enforcement decaled Murcielago giving chase to the Zonda Cinque along a sweeping mountains of Italy. And they even managed to commission a helicopter to aid the Murcielago in chasing the Zonda. Awesome.

There are also photos of the two supercars being prepared for the shoot similar to how celebrities are made-up before filming. Apparently, the Zonda Cinque that’s being chased by the Murcielago police supercar is actually a Zonda F underneath all that make-up. Why they specifically had to have a Zonda Cinque instead of a Zonda F, we don’t know.

But hey, either way works just fine for us.
