April Fools In The Vehicle World

Hey everyone, I would like to welcome you all back to my vehicle and motors blog. Fake news has become increasingly popular in the past months, but April Fools day is a day when we know that no news can be trusted. This is the day when the people working tirelessly for 364 days a year to put out the best news and information are allowed to relax, and see just how gullible their use base is.  Thanks to the wittiest of those people, I have put together a list of some of the best April Fools jokes in the automotive world. Here are some of the most surreal joked pushed out of the vehicle warehouses for April Fools 2017.

Feathered McLarens

McLaren Automotive finally showed that they can have a bit of fun this year. A specialist division of the company called MSO quickly released a new design for the McLaren 570 GT called the Feather Wrap option. This involved the application of 10,000 carbon veined artificial feathers, by hand. The process takes over 300 hours from start to finish, which just makes me feel bad for the poor sap who had to do this for a month.

Honda Jazz Tinder

Those genius innovators at Honda might have won April Fools 2017. On April 1rst they launched H-Swipe, which is the automotive version of Tinder. The general idea is that you can swipe left or right on images on a small screen in your Honda Jazz, allowing you to pick the ideal passenger. I don’t know what they think that everyone is doing while driving, but I generally have enough distractions without having to play the Dating Game while at the wheel.
