The wheels are really too much and the low angle makes it look like there is no rear spoiler.
The missing tow hook cover gives it a fake beauty mole look.
Oh, and the photo is a bit over exposed so it doesn't show off the fantastic contours on the bonnet.

It doesn't really tickle my fancy.

I would say the effects/lighting of the photo on the body are nice.

One thing I notice is the combination of the paint and photo hide the lack of blend line between the hump on the hood and the front bumper cover.

The most striking part of the photo is that the hood no longer appears a separate piece, and is just a white space.

It might make an argument for a one piece front clam shell with a smoother set of lines than the rough angles of the X150.

No bonnet vents and no black pack, it would look better like this:

Black wheels on white car disappear...
Which in turn makes the car and body stand out.
In this case its a very large body.

I think the white car in pic#1 looks smaller??

Looking at it on a bigger screen (than my phone), I can now see the lines (gaps) between the hood, bumper, and fenders. Can also see the hood vents and just barely see the contours of the hood (near the windshield).
Nothing special about the car, other than lack of detail in the photo (maybe that was on purpose... what are they trying to hide?).

Hey everyone,

I think with that exposure the chrome and white look really similar, so it gives the picture almost a monochromatic look. There is a reason people still tend to use black and white photos for art projects, it just looks good. The composition is pretty good as well, just the right angle to really give it that look. I've been browsing around online adds a lot lately (looking at XKR's) and the dealerships that know what they are doing all get very similar shots from the corners, it's a very sexy look. And while this car doesn't need much help to look sexy, it still makes it look really good.
