At a scant 8 minutes past midnight this morning, this article was posted on the BBC News website. It purports to describe a possible electric Roller.

This would appear to be an April Fool.

Except for this 3 week old article in European Car News.

Yeah. But an article mentioning the vehicle has been there in Wikipedia since mid February - and linked to from the main Rolls Royce page, too.

So I'm going for a deliberate attempt to make something look like an April Fool that isn't. Ditto for the National Trust Silly Places Walks article.

Yes, possibly.

(Alternative hypothesis: Rolls-Royce has, at the age of 105, developed an elaborate sense of humor and has been punking us since February...)
