Regulars here would remember that pics of the 2015 Ford Mustang, which was officially unveiled some time back, leaked on the web long before the car actually made its public debut and it won’t be wrong to say that the 2015 Mustang was probably among Ford’s worst kept secrets ever. However, that hasn’t stopped the boffins at the company from congratulating themselves for trying real hard to keep the new gen Mustang hidden from public eye.
Seen here in this video is Mustang chief engineer Dave Pericak, who says,“Professional spy photographers have been stalking prototype cars for decades, and now, the addition of camera phones has made it even more critical to hide our cars from prying eyes.”
Ford tells us that in order to prevent the prying eyes of public/photographers, they developed a camouflage package that completely hid the shape of the car. However, Pericak does acknowledge that the initial camouflage “wasn’t good enough to counter the paparazzi, so we went back to the drawing board.“
Finally, what Ford did was to cover the entire car under thick black vinyl that had padding underneath to hide the car’s shape.
Quite ironically, first leaked images of the new ‘stang were online just 24 hours after the car’s first outing to public roads.
Do check out the video and tell us what you feel about it.
