Volvo Engineer Attacks Spy Photographer! [Video]
Something along the same lines can be said about car spyshots. Photographers hunt down camouflaged prototypes and snap pictures of what we're not supposed to see… yet. Naturally, this might be a bit troublesome for the automakers, but we've never received complaint emails from any of the automakers.
But one (probably Swedish) engineer thinks he can stop the process by attacking a camera guy. It apparently happened in North America, as a Volvo man testing the V40 Cross Country goes after KGP photographer Brian Williams breaking his camera lens.
But wait, the story gets a lot more interesting once you find out what Williams told Jalopnik. Apparently, after the video had ended, the Volvo man went towards the spy photographer's wife who was in the car, at which point he said that he "If you go near her I'll knock you out".
Williams told him that he knows he's in America on a visa and he knows he's allowed to film whatever he wants in public places. The engineer finally calmed down and said his bosses make a big fuss every time his car gets spotted and that they "don't understand that you can't hide a car that looks like a zebra."
