Pass da 'dro man!

BMW has just announced that they will be building a limited number of hydrogen powered cars in 2007. The vehicle will be called the BMW Hydrogen 7, and it will be a 260 horse power 12 cylinder sedan based on the current 7 series. The vehicle will have a modified internal combustion engine that allows it to run on either regular gasoline or hydrogen fuel. BMW will be building 100 of the vehicles as an exclusive test, and "giving" 25 of them to us lucky Yanks. By giving the vehicle two tanks (one for gasoline and one for hydrogen), the range is expected to be over 400 miles with both tanks full. There is no price yet announced for the car, although it is based on the 760Li which carries a base sticker price of $118,900.
