    Now that's nice. Just think of all the damned finger prints you'd have to keep cleaning off it though :p :D

    Doubt fingerprints would be a problem, not more then on any other car that is.

    It sorta looks as if it is about to go invisible, like Bonds' Aston Martin in Die Another Day!

    yeah. the background may be fake, but i highly doubt the car is fake. Camera Reflections? if you're talking about being able to see the reflection of the camera man on the car, (don't take this too personally) you're an idiot. Don't you think that would extremely mess up the look of the car if you were looking at the pictures, and then all of a sudden you see a man staring at it with a camera up to his face right in the middle of the picture? That's like when people take a picture of themself with a digital camera, and they stand in front of a mirror and take the snapshot. HELLO!!!! there's the little thing called the timer. or, for all you know, the tire tracks were covered up after the car was in place.

    But you'd still be able to see the camera. :p Yeah I know, it can be edited. And why cover the tire tracks anyway? I don't see the point.

    Anyway, all in all, I think it'd probably be much easier to just fake it. ;)

    Doesn't look fake to me. The reason you have no tire tracks is because the car is not really in the scenery. When car makers take pictures of the cars, they simply drive the car to a studio where it photographed surrounded by a blue screen. The background is then inserted into the picture and the artist reflect it onto the chrome of the vehicle. The reason you don't see a camera (or any huge light reflections) is because the camera used is actually about several feet away from the car. They use a special zoom-capable macro lens to be able to take pictures from afar (most macro lens do not contain a zoom). In addition, they white balance the picture to match the chromature of the car, rather than the hue of non-white light. This way, you do not have any light distortions coming from the vehicle at that distance. The result is a picture perfect snapshot of the McLaren SLR (by Mercedes).
