Corgi and Luigi Colani bring hydrogen fuel cells to RC cars

A-ha, now we're talking. If you're in the market for a 1/16-scale hydrogen fuel cell car (and didn't see anything you liked in our Top 10 list of green toy cars), take a look at what Corgi's offering. The UK toy company told Marketing Week it has "beaten Detroit to the punch" and will offer a fuel cell car that runs on water for sale. What makes this one special (since there are other such toy cars avaialbe, e.g., the H-Racer and Hydrocar) is that it was designed by Luigi Colani, best known for wearing a lot of white and designing concept vehicles for companies like BMW, Mercedes and Corvetter. This RC car will be unveiled in early February at the Toy Fair N├╝rnberg. The fuel cells are provided by Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, a Singapore-based company.
