Driver Teaser Wheelspins Out of the Ubisoft Garage

There's a Driver teaser site with a live-action trailer riffing the original Driver's opening sequence, showing an anonymous, incredibly skillful wheelman skidding around in a sexy Ford Mustang, which speeds from 1999 to 2010 and transforms into a yellow Dodge Challenger - the iconic muscle car used by Kowalski in 1971 car chase classic, Vanishing Point.
Counting down to the big reveal at E3, if you go onto the Driver Facebook page and click on the 'Like' button, you can find out the mysterious driver's identity. It turns out that original Driver star John Tanner is making a comeback for the reboot, which takes place in (presumably modern day) San Francisco. Also, note the San Francisco 49ers keyring.
You can see the trailer via this link to the Driver teaser site, and then link through to Facebook to see the extended Tanner ID card version of the video. Now go! Put the pedal to the metal!
