Is it a Mirage?

Is it a Mirage?

‘It’s Easy to See the Attraction’ is the latest press campaign for the new Mirage from Mitsubishi. We shot this a few weeks back in a city centre location, as evening fell & the lights came on to give that fun ‘buzzing round the city’ feel to the car. The brief was to find a smart looking […]
