Mukunda Michael Dewil talks MSN through the car scenes in his new movie
It's that time of year. A cheeky spring is in the step of PR departments across the motoring world as they conjure up their latest April Fools' wheezes. While you're keeping your eyes peeled for this year's latest crop, let us take you on a trip back through some of the motoring world's best-ever April Fools. Just one warning for you though: one of these April Fools is one that we've made up - can you guess which?
Hot on the heels of the installation of Pope Francis, a press release emerged from environmentally-friendly insurance firmETA with details of his new mode of transport. It claims that the new Pope is about to take delivery of a pedal-powered Popemobile costing £175,000.
Apparently, the eco-friendly vehicle has solar panels, low voltage spotlights “to illuminate His Holiness” and a top speed of 6mph – depending on who’s pedaling. If you didn’t smell a rat already, news later in the release that the plans were set to receive final approval on Monday 1st April 2013 gives the game away. Austere times call for austere measures but the pedal power Pope is beyond a joke.

I WANT ONE OF THOSE !! as a white van driver i can say i would buy one tomorrow (if possible ) modern construction companies now are all about image as well as reputation gone are the days where you could be a scruffy unshaven animal tailgating civilians in a clapped out rust ridden J reg Transit . BMW should seriously think about putting this into production , also it would go well with my delivery from munich of my new white 1series 12plate 5door BMW
