Looks like minuscule RC cars aren't the only alternatively powered vehicles trying
to break 200 miles-per-hour
, as Ford
just became the "world's first automaker to set a land speed record for a production-based fuel cell
powered car." The whip used to set the bar, of course, is none other than the Fusion Hydrogen 999
, and it reportedly reached over 207 miles-per-hour at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah without using a drop of gas. Apparently, Ford is hoping that this showcase of speed will somehow translate into advancements that will help us common folk get to work and back sans gasoline, and while we've no idea when a fuel cell propelled Cobra will roll off the line, it did note that a number of fuel cell propelled Focus vehicles were still burning down the roads as part of an ongoing study.
