Epic fail... I think?

Well I just saw the Need for Speed undercover ad and I noticed that the 911/997 Turbo in the ad had a FMIC. Last time I checked the 911 turbo had two side mount intercoolers, and in the REAR... behind the doors? If this is true, how could someone not only produce this game but put the epic fail as the poster car for the ad? Where is solid editing and advising nowadays? See 1:08-09 of the vid.

Ad agencies make mistakes like that all the time. There's a famous ad for Heckler and Koch firearms with pics of bullets loaded into a mag backwards.

I read an article that the NFS people made a custom body for it.

EDIT:
From the guy who did it himself:

I'll show you something much worse!!!



Its gonna lead this RS6 to major overheating problems. It was posted yesterday in rs6.com forums.

But yeah on-topic again, that's just stupid! Especially for a game like NFS that's been around for years. I never bought this one. I was smart to check reviews first!
