Ford isn't fond of spy photographers, so they've gone to great lengths to hide their future cars from them. In this video, FoMoCo explains how it worked to keep the 2015 Mustang "hidden in plain sight" from spy photographers.

Engineering manager Tom Barnes took the first fully covered new Mustang out of the factory earlier in June this year, and says that the photos of the car has been popping up on automotive websites in less than an hour.
