It's Good to Be the Prince


We’ve seen celebrities like Brad Pitt drive the new BMW Hydrogen 7 to Hollywood shindigs, but now BMW is loaning one of the 100 test vehicles to Prince Albert II of Monaco for an extended loan. The prince claims to be into cars, and while he can afford probably anything on the market, there’s no way to buy a Hydrogen 7 quite yet.

Also interesting was BMW letting loose the names of other celebs who are “using” the Hydrogen 7. They include Cameron Diaz, Will Ferrell, Jay Leno, Placido Domingo and various foreign politicians. BMW doesn’t say how long the loan is for, but the Prince mentioned “weeks” of testing.
