We all know that Facebook is extremely addictive, but Aston Martin has taken social networking to extremes by developing a special car to celebrate the fact that it has a million fans on Facebook. Yes, I am serious. While we are on the subject, like Imagine Lifestyles on Facebook…end shameless self-promotion.
The Facebook DB9 will be built around March
The luxury carmaker announced roughly five weeks ago that it would be creating the special edition one-off car and that certain aspects of the design would be left in the hands (or mice) of its Facebook fans. The name of the car was among the items available for fans to vote on, which ended up being the “Aston Martin DB9 1M”.
The options for the name were listed for users to vote on, and included the following:
• DB9 1M
• DB9 M
• DB9 F
• DB9 1Million
• DB9 FB
There were 9 elements for users to vote on in total, including name, trim, equipment, and the model selected for the project. Features will include 20-spoke silver diamond-turned wheels, black brake calipers and an Obsidian Black and Spicy Red interior with Piano Black fascia.
What are your thoughts on the product of the input of thousands of fans? Each Facebook user who contributed to the project will receive a downloadable certificate of the model’s design. The DB9 1M will be built next year and likely showcased at various locations upon completion to strut its struts.
