It's the same every year; 1 April comes around and the car world goes mad with April Fools' jokes. Faux news releases flood the web, and some people are genuinely duped into believing that, for example, Mini has built a hatchback which runs on the contents of your cup of tea. 

Here's our roundup of this year's best April Fools' news. You  can let us know your particular favourite in the comments section below.

BMW's Force Injection Booster

BMW wants drivers to feel the thrill of speed, even if they're not driving fast. A new Force Injection Booster simulates the effects of 'spirited' driving through the use of harvested kinetic energy. At speeds under 20mph the booster channels air into the cabin to simulate g-forces. BMW has also included its new AirNet technology to ensure "that occupants don't have to compromise between personal style and driving performance".

Vauxhall Astra Copacabana

For football fans looking forward to the upcoming World Cup in Brazil, Vauxhall's new Astra special edition should be a tempting offer. Priced at £41,024.01 and available now, the Astra Copacabana features a Brazilian flag on its roof, as well as genuine Rio turf inside. The car's footwells are covered with sand from Rio's beaches, while power comes from a new 1.6-litre turbo engine with 197bhp. Vauxhall says the new engine offers "more drama than a penalty shoot-out", and can accelerate to 60mph in 2.6 seconds.

Skoda Yeti Ice

The new Yeti is already a capable crossover, and from today owners can order a new special Ice edition. The new model features a faux fur exterior, which inventor Dr Yu Ciddingme says offers plenty of advantages over traditional paint. The new model, developed under the codename 010414, also includes a lifetime supply of Skoda-branded shampoo and conditioner.

Peugeot personalisation

From July this year Peugeot customers will be able to record their own sounds to be played in the place of a traditional car horn. The Audio Sonic technology will quickly become a standard feature across the Peugeot range, and will be supported by a library of sounds "updated in line with current trends in music, culture and lifestyle".

Mini Cooper T

The very British Mini gets a very British fuel solution. Mini engineers have developed a new version of the 2014 Cooper which runs on a tea-leaf biofuel composite. Available in a new range of colours including Chamomile Yellow, Red Bush and Earl Grey, the new car is capable of travelling up to 40 miles on a single cup. Head of engineering on the project, Dr Ivana Kuppa, said the car had been "brewing for years".

Citroën C4 Cactus Arsenal edition

Arsenal fans have had their prayers answered by Citroën, which today revealed a special edition of the new C4 Cactus. Featuring a new integrated console with a Geo Organised Away-day Location, Information and Entertainment interface, or G.O.A.L.I.E, the new car also features a database of pie and mash vendors and a music list of football anthems. Citroën says the new model will soon be available at all of its UK dealers, apart from those in Tottenham.

Honda's 'Speed Gene'

On the final day of World Superbike testing in Jerez, riders Leon Haslam and Jonathan Rea will hand over the reigns of their CBR1000RR superbikes to their young sons. Honda's engineers have lowered the ride height of the bikes and developed a new 'goo-ga' translator to record feedback from the new one-year-old riders.
