It’s summertime, so there are car shows all over the place, and it’s possible to see some really sweet old cars, typically maintained by really sweet older guys. The photos, even in the press, aren’t usually all that sweet, they are just cars sitting on asphalt or grass, typically with high contrast light coming through trees, or some really bad HDR processing.
Here’s one example of that. Nice car, but not that nice for any serious car photo library. Here’s another example, where classic cars get mixed in with fruit pies and much more. Sweet, for sure, but just not what you are interested in, for automotive marketing and advertising projects.
What is more interesting this summer is that we’re starting to see some beautiful pictures of high end cars that will be coming out in the fall.
One that’s making lots of waves, for instance, is the new Austin Martin Vanquish. It’s a handsome looking car by any measure.
Unfortunately for those of us in the United States, the car won’t arrive in retail until next year, but it will be available this fall in Europe.
The new Vanquish will reach European dealerships in late 2012 with UK prices starting from £189,995, while first deliveries in the U.S. will begin in early 2013 with prices to start from US$279,995 MSRP.
We’ve also seen some tantalizing reports about a new Mercedes and a new Bentley. The Mercedes is a Mercedes-Benz’s 2014 CLA Class, and the Bentley is a Continental GT Speed. Both of them should have many more details coming out soon, but for now we’re just listening for press reports. Both will be fascinating additions to the high end marketplace.
