Pinfinarina’s H2 Speed Is A 503Hp Hydrogen-Powered Concept

This peculiar looking ride is the H2 Speed, Pininfarina’s latest innovative vision of a high performance track car, based on a revolutionary hydrogen fuel cell technology.

The tech used in the concept is already subjected for track testing by GreenGT, a company which has been designing, developing and producing clean propulsion systems since 2008. Described as a mix between a racing prototype and a production supercar, the H2 Speed is the world’s first hydrogen, high-performance automobile, hence the name.

The technology is actually the outcome of a two-year development and testing program, materializing intro a 503 horsepower zero emissions vehicle, capable of reaching 300 km/h and accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in just 3.4 seconds; all this while releasing just water vapors into the atmosphere.

Although the H2 eliminates both air and noise pollution, the vehicle was designed to somehow make a pleasant sound, as Pininfarina says that “even the noise made by the car is close to the emotion of silence, sounds and hisses that evokes science fiction”.

Sculpted by efficiency-boosted aerodynamics, the concept has a pure beautiful form, free of any stylistic affection, expressing a design that communicates uncompromising beauty with extreme performance (according to the company). Basically, this is a fully-fledged concept car, penned without limitations and taking inspiration from the original Ferrari Sigma Grand Prix Formula One show car, built in 1969 by the Italian coachbuilder.

Using the same principles, the car is governed by extreme proportions, measuring length 4,700 mm in length, 1087 mm in height, and 2000 mm in width. Even the choice of body colors is inspired by the Sigma Grand Prix and gives it a modern interpretation with a plain pearlescent shade of white.
