OXFORD, England - One of Britain’s most popular models has become the latest victim of the paparazzi, caught with no make-up and part-naked.

Having a frenzy of photographers on the prowl is nothing new to members of the Royal Family, actors, soccer players. Especially when in a compromising situation. Now the next Mini has become the latest victim.

CAUGHT OFFGUARD

Wheels24 suspects it can only be the four-door 2014 Mini Cooper we spied in 2012. The car was caught unawares by photographers in a "highly private moment", yellow and defenceless. Yes, we know this reeks of a cheap publicity stunt, but the car was spied by us so long ago it had to resurface before its official unveiling.

Mini says: "We understand the worldwide interest in our family but it is not the British way to send such unfavourable pictures around the globe but, like a good stiff-upper-lipped Brit, we shall not complain, although we would like to officially state that we are not flattered.

"The published pictures do not reflect our good looks any way."

The automaker says the car will be revealed soon and no more spy shots will be needed.
