Hydrogen-powered 7 Series spotted testing

It appears as though BMW's CleanEnergy project is moving along. Evo caught this hydrogen-powered 7 Series testing in Germany.

The engine, based on the 231 bhp 6.0L V12, can run on either hydrogen or gas and automatically switches between fuel source tanks when one is empty.

A hydrogen variant of the 7 Series is expected to be made available to small fleets in 2008.
