BS Online Motoring Newspaper

I know how much you guys are lovin a bit of BS lately, so here's a site full of it...

It contains such (strange?) articles such as this one on the RS...


With bookies now offering better odds on the Messiah walking on earth this year than on the Focus RS ever going on sale, Ford has offered some new excuses for the hot hatch's late arrival. "It's really not our fault," whined spokesman Anglia Super. "One of our engineers left the front suspension plans on the bus. Honest he did. Cross my heart and hope to die."
Meanwhile, over in the powertrain division engineers claim that significant delays in signing off the final inlet manifold specification were the result of vital documents being eaten by "a really big dog". Furthermore, the steering valve calibration programme is claimed to have taken a big knock back when one of the project managers was reportedly beaten up on his way home from the office. "It was some boys from Volkswagen," claimed the unnamed employee, "and they stole all the diagrams."
Industry watchers have feared that all was not well with the 220bhp range topper's development for some time. At the Geneva Show Ford development boss Martin Leach seemed nervous and slightly guilty looking as journalists noticed an RS on display. Worse still, when it looked like he might be questioned about the car Leach ran off and hid in the toilets until home time.
