Angry Volvo V40 engineer attacks spy shot photographer

Posted Jan 31st 2013 11:25AM


Here at Autoblog Canada, we aim to bring you the first look at some of the hottest new cars and getting our hands on camouflage covered spy shots and prototypes from manufacturers certainly helps.

For those who think a career in automotive spy photography looks like an easy gig... think again, especially after watching this video of KGP photographer Brian Williams having his camera lens broken by an angry Volvo engineer. Watch as the man driving what looks like a zebra-wrapped version of a Volvo V40 Cross Country pulls over and suddenly attacks the photographer on camera.

While we can easily understand the frustration of being stalked by some relentless paparazzi, we know most spy photo professionals (like the ones we use) are generally very respectful of the vital testing performed by such busy automotive engineers.

Although we don't know the whole story as to why or how the situation may have escalated and heated up to its boiling point, we also can't condone seeing such childish behaviour occur between two adults trying to do their jobs. Can't we all just get along?
