Gumpert Brings Two Of Its Innovative Hydrogen Nathalies To Geneva

Gumpert has brought a pair of Nathalie models to the Geneva Motor Show, giving the European public their first taste of the innovative sports car.

The first thing to mention is that the matte orange car pictured is believed to be a near-production-spec model while the matte blue is a race car concept variant of the Nathalie.

Starting with the orange Gumpert Nathalie, it looks a little different than the original purple Nathalie show car which was unveiled back in early 2018. The overall shape of the vehicle has been retained but the updated Nathalie’s rear end has been altered with the fitment of six circular taillights rather than the single LED taillight unit of the initial show car.

The orange vehicle shown does retain the show car’s six additional horizontal reversing lights just underneath the taillights.

At the front, the latest Nathalie looks largely the same and still incorporates aggressive LED daytime running lights and triangular-shaped air intakes.

Moving to the Nathalie race car concept, it has the same rear fascia as the purple show car but now benefits from a number of aggressive alterations. For example, a towering rear wing has been fitted, flared arches are present, and there’s a large splitter protruding out from the under the front bumper.

Powering the Gumpert Nathalie are four electric motors which receive their juice from a hydrogen fuel cell stack. The vehicle also includes a methanol reformer which takes in methanol and splits it into carbon dioxide which is released into the air as hydrogen is funneled into the fuel cell. This system is said to be quite effective as the car can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds and continue through to a 186 mph (300 km/h) top speed.

    Maybe they’re trying to break into a higher volume market with this car. I think it looks great, even if it has a lot of Skyline vibes. I’m just glad it’s not another double-digit production exotic or generic CUV.
