Nice find. I wonder if that was cover page for the press kit.

Thanks. Your image definitely clearer. It does look like maybe uploading to the forum applied some amount of compression. Assuming you have access to a high res version can you post a link to the unmodified source?

682x960 was the highest resolution version I was able to find.
I've tried comparing the attachment above and the file on my computer and the compression hasn't changed.

The original file isn't very high-res to begin with.

However, I do have the original [CGI] photograph used in the advertisement, in high-resolution (2250x1500).
This time I've uploaded it to a image hosting site, along with the ad (682x960).

The album with both images can be found

Hope this helps.

I remember when i was leaving for my ED trip this ad was on the side of the parking garage in french at the airport in Montreal (i have a pic somewhere). My father was with me on the trip and I remember him being a bit upset when he saw the ad as he wasn't able to secure allocation at his dealer (he lives in Indiana). I thought I was just taking him for a birthday father-son euro trip.

Fast forward a day later and we are both sitting in the delivery lounge getting ready to pick up my 1M. You should have seen his face when i pushed the button for the elevator at the welt and said to him, "Dad, we're picking up a car today"

Awesome story—I really wish I did a euro delivery for mine but just couldn't unfortunately...maybe one day if another special car comes around.

So, I took that image and went to www.fractureme.com and created a picture printed on glass of it and it turned out awesome!

Just another little thing to add to my 1M collection

Let me know what you think?

Yes, just the file Law was able to download for us it is 66KB....but, it worked and website did not flag it as low resolution for the smaller size option.

It looks super cool

I'm thinking about doing another for those other 1M and 2002 Turbo pics I posted up earlier.

New Cars & Coffee Mug

Thanks for the great image - I had a coffee mug made with it.
(Costco.com Photo did a great job)

I also have the EVO 1M graphic coffee mug - I like this one better.
