H.S.H. Prince Albert invited Green GT and Pininfarina to present him, on the Prince's Palace square of Monaco, their electric-hydrogen fuelled supercar: the H2 Speed
Monaco-- Monaco hosts the automobile revolution. On the occasion of a private presentation, H.S.H. Prince Albert received in a friendly and passionate atmosphere the team of Green GT and Pininfarina who presented to him the particularly innovative automotive project that they jointly developed: H2 Speed, the world’s first electric-hydrogen, high performance car.
H2 Speed, a showpiece of style and technology in the name of sportiness, performance and pure, environmentally responsible driving fun, debuted at the last Geneva Motor Show. The 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.
Very attentive to sustainable technologies and to entrepreneurs who invest in this way, H.S.H. Prince Albert proposed to Jean-Michel Bouresche, head of Green GT Technologies, to come and visit him at Prince's Palace in order to let him discover the latest project developed by Green GT with Pininfarina, the H2 Speed concept.
Together with Pininfarina representatives, Jean-Michel Bouresche presented the amazing supercar boasting shapes as futuristic as the technology behind. H.S.H. Prince Albert then extensively conversed with his guests, including the Director of Research and Development Green GT, Jean-François Weber, Chairman Paolo Pininfarina, CEO of Pininfarina Silvio Pietro Angori, Chief Creative Officer of Pininfarina Fabio Filippini, Design Vice Director of Pininfarina Fabrizio Valentini, and with Olivier Panis. Winner of the Monaco Grand Prix F1 1996, the French champion is indeed the test driver of the H2 Speed and the ambassador of the project.
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 vapour 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 3 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.
