Back in the 70s when image-rights were more expensive than a drawing made by an artist the magazines still featured very beautiful renderings of the latest models, just like this 1978 Starlet KP61 drawn for motor-fan magazine:
Motor-fan Magazine Starlet bugeye
Motor-fan Magazine Starlet bugeye

Personally I do believe a well drawn rendering is in most cases way better than a photoshoot that just didn’t work out…
Of course it can not compare to pictures taken by a skillful master! 😉
