Pininfarina puts the ‘H’ word in supercars

ITALIAN car design firm Pininfarina has unveiled the high-performance H2 Speed concept which would be the world’s cleanest race track car at the Geneva Motor Show.

The machine is said to generate 509 hp and be capable of 300km/h, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in a 3.4 seconds all the while releasing just water vapour into the air.

Powered by hydrogen, it is believed to be the first fuel cell supercar and, according to the International Business Times, has been made in association with GreenGT, a Franco-Swiss company, which has been designing, developing and production sustainable propulsion systems since 2008.

The track specific car is powered by two race-specification electric motors, fed by a lightweight two-stack hydrogen fuel cell with a braking energy recovery system.

It has no gearbox, clutch or differential with the drive going directly the rear wheels with torque vectoring software.

The company says the car has a unique sound which is created with its compressor technology, performing an almost silent drive with futuristic whistles.
