Pininfarina H2 Speed

Pininfarina, an Italian design and engineering firm that is known more for luxury design than technological advancement, have just released details on a project which won them the Best Concept Award at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show: The H2 Speed hydrogen fuel cell-powered track car. What they are calling “somewhere between a racing prototype and a production supercar” would be, if it does indeed go into production, the world’s first high performance hydrogen-powered car. And it is a beauty.

Incorporating GreenGT motor technology (which uses a combination of electric and hydrogen power elements), this car would be equipped with two electric race motors, one hydrogen fuel cell, and a breaking energy regeneration system. And they gauge that would give this track vehicle, which sits on a carbon chassis and weighs just about 3,131 pounds, somewhere in the ballpark of 500 horsepower, a maximum speed of just over 186 MPH, and a 0-62 MPH time of 3.4 seconds – all without the need for gear shifting and a grand total of zero emissions. Oh, and refueling would take just 3 minutes – unlike the much longer fill-up times of other high-end electric vehicles already on the road.
