So far, hydrogen cars haven’t been much good for consumer use, but they’re always game for a little green PR. And, as we just discovered, they can go very very fast. This one just got up to a hair shy of 200mph on the western salt flats. It’s a record for H2, but a little short of the 760mph you can get up to if you’re willing to resort to jet fuel. Not to say we wouldn’t mind a speed trial or two…
