Aston Martin unveils hydrogen-powered racer to compete in 24 hour challenge

Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S

Motor sports may allow a thrilling experience to both the rider as well as viewers, but it’s also a major source of the carbon emission and affects the environment adversely. Adding sustainability to motor sports, Aston Martin has come up with a hydrogen-powered racer to celebrate its centenary year.  Developed in association with hydrogen experts Alset Global, the hybrid car features a six-liter, V12 engine that runs on pure gaseous hydrogen, pure gasoline or a blend of both.

Capable of reaching 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, the Rapide S touts a top speed of 190mph. Scheduled to debut at the Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race in Germany later this year, the Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S will hopefully become the first hydrogen-powered car to participate in an international motorsport competition.
