Ford and Ohio State University are teaming up to attempt a double land speed record for fuel cell-powered vehicles. Ohio State already holds the land speed record for electrically driven vehicles at 315 mph with the battery-powered Buckeye Bullet. Now they are providing the motor and fuel cell that will power the Ford Fusion XV1 and the Buckeye Bullet 2 when they head out to Bonneville to try and set dual records for fuel cell powered vehicles in the unlimited and production classes. AutoblogGreen has the information and will be providing more coverage over the coming weeks and months.

      Hey Mr Roach unlike the Prelude the Fusion will be around more than a few years. The Prelude was a *cough* Piece of crap *cough* And actually if you want to get technical, the Prelude copied the SUNFIRES headlights from the 90's.

      Makes me even more proud to be a Buckeye

      Darrell,

      Well said. I believe everybody understand that the reason Honda retired the very successful Prelude run, was that is was now competing with the even more successful (of recent) Honda Coupe, its sibling:

      Wow, it must be day a cold day in h*ll to think someone believes Honda would actually copy from Pontiac ('we build excitement' & video game based dashboards & washboard cladding, etc.).

      Anyways, back to reality. It would be nice if the Universities and Industry competed to build an energy efficient way of PRODUCING power to 'fuel' the Fuel Cell, rather than just another way of it using it. Before we invest too much in alternate fuel vehicles, we must know that the respective fuel resource may be economicable to produce at some point, or at least more economicable to produce than fossil fuels - we are not there yet... another e.g. corn based methanol

      The Prelude has been around for roughly 20 years. By my count, Bryan, that's a few more years than the Contour and Fusion combined.

      Back to what I was originally going to say:
      It should be called the 'Growling Gator' since, you know, Florida OWNS Ohio State.

      The Gators could build a faster one.

      I saw the picture and thought an SVT Fusion was coming. This is still pretty nice.

      The Fusion used in this post looks pretty damn nice compared to the benign thing sitting on dealer lots. Why can't a person get one from the factory this way?
