A Bentley Parked in the AutoBlog Blogging Garage for Review

Bentley LogoWhen Nokia rolled out their N series mobile phones, they shunned the traditional media advertising route and contacted bloggers to spread the buzz around.

Now even luxury car manufacturers are realizing the marketing power of blogs.

When Autoblog, a popular AOL blog on Automobiles, sent an email to Bentley executives requesting a review of the 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, the bloggers were too sure if Bentley would really listen to them. So they were too surprised on seeing the $200,00 super luxury sedan parked in their garage for review. Autoblog verdict - "four days with the 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur proved that it's worth every penny."

As Jason points out, "Wow, blogging has come a long way". Anyone planning to start a blog on commercial airplanes or even fighter jets ?
