Pininfarina’s hydrogen-fueled concept car H2 Speed blew away the competition and easily stands out as the concept car of the year 2016. H2 Speed lovers admire the car at the Bologna Motor Show in Turin, Italy.
The H2 Speed conquers the highest step of the podium. Already awarded Best Concept at 2016 Geneva Motor Show, Pininfarina’s hydrogen-fueled supercar has now been elected Concept of the Year by an influential American automotive magazine.
The Pininfarina H2 Speed is sleek, sporty and extremely beautiful in the classical PininfarinaFerrari racing sports-car tradition. It embodies advanced technology that makes it an almost totally non-polluting vehicle in use.
H2 Speed 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 Green GT. This car is a showpiece of style and technology in the name of sportiness, performance and pure environmentally responsible driving fun. The 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.
Halfway between a racing prototype and a production supercar, the H2 Speed is the world’s first hydrogen, high performance car thanks to the Full Hydrogen Power technology presented by Green GT, a powerful electric-hydrogen fuel cell drive chain. The result is a zero emissions vehicle that can reach 300 km/h while releasing just water vapor into the atmosphere.
With a maximum power of 503 horsepower, the engine accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. Also notable is the rapid refueling, unknown to traditional electric cars: a full tank of hydrogen takes just three minutes. The H2 Speed almost completely eliminates noise pollution too, the sound emitted by the motor being close to total silence.
With the H2 Speed, Pininfarina confirms its commitment to excellence in design and research applied to sustainable mobility, the strong points of a company that is also intensively occupied in engineering services and in the development of special cars and limited series of exclusive models.
