Angelina Jolie is a renowned Hollywood celebrity, whose prominence has reached all across the world. The actress has over the years bagged several prestigious awards from the film arena owing to her brilliant acting skills. The lady is among the most successful Hollywood stars and is married to the famed actor Brad Pitt. Not many people know, but Angelina Jolie is a huge car fanatic and owns a number of astonishing looking cars. Her vast portfolio is determined mainly by 5 cars, out of which few have been bespoke specially for the lady. The main model parked in the garage of the celebrity is a BMW 7 Series Hydrogen, which is among the most iconic BMW cars present in the world.

This model from the German auto major is a limited edition car, which is incorporated with the same 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine seen in the 7 Series line-up along with a hydrogen fuel tank. The hybrid car showcases the futuristic approach of the auto maker and interestingly, it is the first hydrogen powered luxurious sedan in the world. Unlike other hybrid cars available in the world, this car uses the internal combustion engine to burn the hydrogen as against utilising the hydrogen fuel cells. The car maker had only launched 100 models of this car for testing purposes, out of which one is owned by Angelina Jolie.

The hybrid car from the auto maker is equipped with a 6.0-litre V12 Twin Turbocharged petrol engine, which has the ability to deliver a power output of a mammoth 545 bhp with peak torque of almost 750 Nm. It is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which transfers all the energy to the rear wheels. Amalgamated with a hydrogen fuel source, this car has an increased performance and mileage ratio. The sedan has the capability to reach the 0-100 kmph mark in under 8 seconds and has a further limited top speed of 250 kmph. 

Auto experts are of a view that this exclusive technology will soon mark its advent in the BMW car models in India. A number of other car makers, such as Honda and Toyota have already geared up to achieve the same in the nation. The BMW cars in India, at present are either available in a diesel or a petrol guise and both these are efficient on all performance scales. However, keeping in mind the rate at which technology is being utilised in the automobile sector, the day is not far when cars will be powered by just a single atom element. It is anticipated then once after arriving in India, the hydrogen powered BMW car prices will be steeply affected.

At present, a number of local dealers as well as renowned shops deal in used BMW cars, which are being purchased by a considerable number of buyers. This is due to the fact that the technology employed in these cars does not easily become obsolete and the models are known to have a longer life. Several BMW cars for sale can be spotted on the internet as well as at the local dealers. These can be purchased by people who desire to experience the unique luxury of BMW.
