Tired of BMW’s “New” Designs?

Prep-aaahhhh-terous! Famed Tenor Gets Hydrogen BMW

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – October 2, 2007… World-renowned opera singer-conductor Placido Domingo will be given the keys to a BMW Hydrogen 7 – the first hydrogen-powered luxury sedan – for his everyday use, BMW announced today. Widely regarded as the greatest operatic artist of modern times, Domingo joins several other preeminent figures in entertainment, government, the environment and more, as the latest person to drive the BMW Hydrogen 7 on U.S. roadways as a part of the BMW Hydrogen 7 Pioneer Program, designed to help the company in its mission to build widespread support of hydrogen as a viable alternative to fossil fuels.
