By now, you’ve probably all seen the leaked Jaguar XJ photos prior to the actual unveiling yesterday by Jay Leno. Good looking car to be sure. But what’s the appeal of spy photography leading up to them? Remember the mustache story from a few days back? Those guys were driving cloak and dagger cars. Take out my camera to snap a few? Hardly. I couldn’t for the life of me make out what they were, so what’s the point besides that being the point. The other magazines might as well show me a disguised Yugo and tell me it’s the next Smart.
“Yup, looks like the next Smart car alright. It’s got that square thing going on under the bra and it’s kinda tall and what not… oh look, they’ve put some wheels on it too. That next-gen Smart is going to be sweet.”
