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.

“After spending weeks refining the camo package for the Mustang, it was a bit frustrating getting snagged by the paparazzi almost immediately,” said Barnes. “On the other hand, when we saw the photos later that day, it was a relief to realize you really couldn’t tell what the car looked like.”

None of us want it to happen, but through no fault of your own, you can end up in an auto body shop repairer.

Then you have the boy racers flying about the roads with little or no consideration for other drivers.
