It may not be enough to counter the dire thought of grotesque fossil fuel consumption, however, this year's two most exotic show cars may very well have been zero-emission vehicles. Both Daimler-Chrysler and Ford opted to showcase their fuel-cell technologies to classic car enthusiasts by bringing a hydrogen powered Mercedes-Benz A-Class and a Ford Focus FCV, respectively. Both companies are currently testing small fleets of these fuel-cell vehicles in real-world conditions by their employees as well as some government agencies.
This isn't the first time fuel-efficiency matters have cruised down Woodward Avenue on the third Saturday of August. Last year, a group of about 30 hybrid owners drove their fuel-sipping Toyotas, Hondas and Fords alongside the menacing Chargers, Challengers and Cobras.
We have yet to hear about the response generated by the two fuel-cell cars, so if you hear anything (positive or negative) be sure to let us know.
