The Geneva auto show is a land of champagne wishes and supercar dreams, so naturally that’s where Italian (now Indian) design house Pininfarina unveiled its H2 Speed, a supercar concept powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.

-

Its maker describes the H2 Speed as “halfway between a racing prototype and a production supercar.” Two hydrogen stacks supply power to a fuel cell, which powers two electric motors. The powertrain is supplied by GreenGT, which is described as a Franco-Swiss company that designs and builds “sustainable propulsion systems.”

The motors’ 503 horsepower is sent via direct drive to the rear wheels. With a dry weight said to be 3131 pounds (thanks in part to a carbon-fiber chassis), Pininfarina claims a top speed of 186 mph and a 0-to-62-mph time of 3.4 seconds for the H2 Speed.

Pininfarina characterizes the H2 Speed as the world’s first “high-performance hydrogen car.” And with its supercar proportions and huge central fin, even the most casual observer is unlikely to confuse it with the only fuel-cell vehicles currently available to American consumers, the Honda Clarity, the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, and the Toyota Mirai.
