Pininfarina H2 Speed Supercar is Bonkers
It seems like automakers with the idea of bringing wild, eccentric and outlandish car concepts to the Geneva Motor Show are not sleeping on their laurels and have no plans to stop any time soon. And because the Swiss-based auto show is known for its supercar exhibits, its natural that it would be the best place to unveil a supercar concept that’s envisioned to shape the future of motor sports.
Known as the Pininfarina H2 Speed, the concept supercar is a brainchild of the legendary Italian design house Pininfarina. It’s a beautifully sleek hydrogen-powered concept racecar that can achieve a maximum power of 496bhp.
Its distinctive body maybe captivating, but its two electric synchronous motors with permanent magnets cannot be downplayed. They enable it to accelerate from 0 to 62mph in a matter of 3.4 seconds! The supercar also uses torque vectoring to optimize performance with its immense power sent to the rear wheels.
While many flashy concept cars like the H2 Speed always hypnotize us when they get their 15 minutes of fame at the Geneva auto show before disappearing into the oblivion, it looks like that won’t be the case with the H2 Speed. It’s been reported that production of only 10 units have been approved by Mahindra, the Indian engineering titan that now owns Pininfarina.
This limited approval is perhaps down to the fact that it would cost a fortune to produce it. So you’ll have to pay on the upwards of $2.5 million to get your hands on a single H2 Speed.
