It's 1 April, and the car industry has been doing its bit to keep us entertained.
Here's a round-up of some of the best announcements we've found. Follow the link below to see the accompanying pictures.
Auto Windscreens tells us it has launched its first prescription windscreen.
Nigel Davies, Auto Windscreens sales and marketing director said, “Not only will cars fitted with the new prescription windscreen help keep glasses wearers safe and legal on our roads but it could potentially lead to a reduction in vehicle theft."
BMW claims to be selling different-coloured roundels so that you can display your political affiliation ahead of the general election. The customised roundel is called the innovative Political Roundel Attachment Tag (PRAT).
Uwe Beanhadde, Head of Made-up Technology at BMW’s renowned Forschungs und Innovationszentrum in Munich helpfully said, “We have been working on this innovation for a number of years and see it as a niche with potentially wide appeal."
Festival of Speed
Following the recent announcement of the Moving Motor Show at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lord March has ‘revealed’ an innovative scheme to help lower man-made emission levels throughout the exhibition site.
To reduce the number of generators used on site, this year’s event will be powered by natural methane gas, taken directly from Goodwood’s extensive herd of Dairy Shorthorn cattle.
Commenting on this eco-friendly initiative, a manufacturer’s spokesperson said, “It’s enlightening to see that Goodwood is taking no bull, and the organisers deserve a real pat on the back. This wind-powered solution is udderly electrifying.”
