Toyota GT 86-R Marangoni Eco Explorer runs on ammonia

If the world ever runs out of fuel, this GT86 which runs on ammonia (or gasoline) will keep on chugging

Developed by tire making company Marangoni and TRC Italia styling center, this GT 86 now represents the quintessence of elegance, fashion, performance and eco-friendliness.

The GT 86-R Marangoni Eco Explorer has been fitted with a special system that enables it to run both on gasoline or ammonia (NH3), which is stored in a separate tank. The system has been developed by Bigas International, a company focused on the use of alternative energy sources for more than 40 years.

Ammonia is said to offer a higher energy content per kilogram than petrol while also eliminating fine dust particle and CO2 emissions. Check it out in the video bellow.

I love how they shot the video...that's about it. Although I like the color, reminded me of the one posted earlier with the wrap on it.
