Japan makes Honda's FCX fuelcell-powered car street legal

Honda FCX

Now it's only a matter of hours before these things are buzzing silently down Tokyo highways at 4:00 a.m., since Japan's gone and made Honda's FCX fuel cell-powered car officially street legal. Apparently much of the hold up was due to subzero fuel cell operation, but Honda's got it all worked out, and they even managed to further increase the engine's efficiency, so now the FCX transforms twice as much energy to torque as a hybrid, and three times as much as a gas-powered engine. Not bad, but can we please skip to the insane car mods now? Thanks.
