Italian design and engineering company Pininfarina introduced a hydrogen-powered racecar concept dubbed the H2 Speed, targeted to those who want their high-performance speedsters to be powered by clean energy at the Geneva Motor Show 2016. The hydrogen tech comes from a Franco-Swiss company GreenGT, which has been designing and developing clean energy propulsion systems since 2008.

The name of the concept is self-explanatory for anyone with basic knowledge of chemistry as 'H2' is the chemical formula of hydrogen gas. Pininfarina has added the 'Speed' suffix to denote this is a high-performance vehicle destined exclusively for track use.

The design certainly looks ready to start turning laps. The company keeps the whole shape smooth and simple. Like many modern prototype racers, a fin runs down the rear to connect the roof to the wing. The fairings around the hydrogen tanks also help keep weight down.
