Halfway between a racing prototype and a production supercar, the H2 Speed is the world's first hydrogen, high performance car revealed at 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Its name is H2 Speed and it is Pininfarina's innovative vision of a high performance track car based on revolutionary hydrogen fuel cell technology already subjected to severe track testing by GreenGT, a Franco-Swiss company which has been designing, developing and producing clean, sustainable propulsion systems since 2008.
Seduced by GreenGT technology, Pininfarina has applied its mastery to express a style that communicates uncompromising beauty and a unique allure, combined with extreme performance.
The power of a green engine
The technology presented by GreenGT is the substantial outcome of a two-year development and testing programme that has embodied the form of the H2 Speed concept. GreenGT proposes 'Full Hydrogen Power' technology, a powerful electrichydrogen fuel cell drive chain.
The result is a zero emissions vehicle able to reach 300 km/h (186 mph) by releasing just water vapor into the atmosphere.
With a maximum power of 503 horsepower, the engine accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds.
Pininfarina says that the sound emitted by the H2 Speed’s electric motors are close to silent
H2 Speed will appeal to passionate people who love speed, performance and innovation and, at the same time, are attracted by the exclusivity typical of a Pininfarina-designed vehicle produced in a limited series.
