Pininfarina Are Making 10 Units Of The Bonkers H2 Speed Concept For $2.5m Each
Most of the automakers that brought their wild concepts to the Geneva Motor Show have no plans to put them on the road but according to a new report by Automotive News, Pininfarina has different ideas with their H2 Speed Concept. I saw this car in the flesh when I was at the show and it has presence like you have no idea. Mahindra, who owns Pininfarina, has apparently approved 10 units of their hydrogen-powered fuel cell racecar and it will set you back a cool $2.5 million each. The “production” cars will be track-only specials based on a Le Mans Prototype 2 racing chassis that’s homologated for FIA competition, but will utilize a twin-stack hydrogen fuel cell system that will power the 503-horsepower electric motors. The cars are rear-wheel drive, 0 to 100 km/h should take only 3.4 seconds, and the racer is estimated to have a top speed of 300 km/h. The styling house claims they have buyers lined up already and that they should have a working prototype in about 12 months time.
