A very quick entry, where contributor ‘Nicolas’ can recall seeing a C64 conversion of this early Cobrasoft game, which did see release on the Amstrad CPC:  https://cpcrulez.fr/GamesTest/meurtre_a_grande_vitesse.htm

Nothing of the C64 edition can be found online, and with Nicolas being a close friend of a coder in the Babygang group – its possible that a pre-release version of the game was perhaps obtained back in the late 80’s and Nicolas saw that.

Looking on Gamebase, there is a similarly titled game which may be by the very same author of this title called Murder on the Atlantic – its likely part of the same series, as this too was by Cobrasoft: http://www.gb64.com/game.php?id=14700&d=18

Cobrasoft was founded by Bertrand Brocard, and the French wikipedia page (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cobrasoft) on the house does list the game for the C64.

Interestingly in 2013, there was a crack intro release for the game, but no actual game.  So what happened? … http://csdb.dk/release/?id=117273

Thanks to Sam64H and Olivier Cappelaere, the game has been found and fully preserved.  The game was indeed released and just had a very limited release overall.

Case closed!
