The new car will make its public debut on November 28 at the Los Angeles Motor Show before going on sale at an undisclosed date next year.
The Hydrogen 7 is based on the existing 7-series and comes equipped with an internal combustion engine capable of running on liquid hydrogen or petrol. In hydrogen mode the car emits water vapour. Powered by a 260nhp 12-cylinder engine, the Hydrogen 7 accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 9.5 seconds before going on to an electronically limited top speed of 143mph.
A total of 100 BMW Hydrogen 7s will be built in 2007. Details on pricing and the destinations of the 100 cars will be announced at a later date.
