Swank seems to have gotten the better half of the deal; while Curtis and husband Christopher Guest are piloting a Honda FCX Clarity these days, Swank received the keys to a new BMW Hydrogen 7.
In between sessions polishing her two Oscars, Swank will have to get her people to refill the hydrogen-powered Bimmer in the L.A. area, one of the few places on earth that has hydrogen fuel available for refills. (Norway will be another one soon.)
Hydrogen-powered cars are being tested by many automakers as the alternative fuel of the future. BMW's spin is unique: unlike other hydrogen cars that use volatile hydrogen to power fuel cells, BMW's vehicles burn hydrogen in a modified internal-combustion engine.
