This Is Why I Don’t Get Hired To Shoot Supercars

One of the most show-stopping cars to come out of this past year was the De Tomaso P72. It’s a startup supercar, claiming it’ll offer a manual gearbox, a supercharged V8 and gorgeous copper detailing. Part of what made me care about it, though, were the studio photos that not…
