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.
Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer, had this to say: "The professional photographers all know where the cars get built and where they get tested. One photographer we see frequently parks in discrete locations with a view of these facilities, just waiting for something new to emerge.”
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.
“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.”
