Nissan's paint job

Sometimes it’s hard to get the “perfect” spy photo. Take the upcoming Altima Coupe for instance: Amateurs caught the coupe camouflage-free, but the pictures were likely taken with a high ISO (grainy) disposable camera, and from a great distance away – leaving a visible silver shape, but lacking details. Now, we managed to get pretty close – and we were using the finest optics and digital equipment available, but the guys at Nissan covered the new coupe with miles of white tape, and got a bit carried away with a can or two of black spray paint!

But even under all the graffiti, it’s pretty obvious that this is the long-awaited Altima Coupe, which is scheduled to arrive at dealerships in the autumn of 2007. So use your imagination – and no squinting needed – these are the best Altima Coupe pictures that you’ll see for a while.
