Wow, that was fun! Yesterday’s post with the full details and first pictures about the V12 Vantage Roadster went viral all over the internet!
First dutch car blog AutoBlog.nl picked it up, then TopGear.nl and dutch newspaper Telegraaf.nl. Soon car related sites all over Europe starting taking over the news and pictures. Later in the day, after WordCarFans.com posted the photos, it exploded all over the world. Today still more and more sites are replicating the big news 🙂
I fully expected that, with the embargo being lifted yesterday, all car news sites would bring the happy news first thing in the morning. Assuming that Aston Martin would have sent out the press release already, with the same embargo date.
So I made sure my post was live early, hoping to get at least a small “scoop”.
I must say though that I was surprised about the speed of distribution over the net and the way most sites just copied the news and pics, some word for word, without any fact checking whatsoever.
What if I had made it all up and added some photoshopped pics of a V12 Vantage with a chopped-off roof? Anyway, I am off to to register the RapideVolante.com domain.
And here’s the first “official” pic! How that’s for a scoop?
