Green GT H2: getting ready for 2013 Le Mans.

Well yes the 2012 Le Mans is around the corner, but one company brought out their unique prototype yesterday for the Le Mans Test Day.  The Green GT H2 promises to be the first Electric/Hydrogen powered race car—and after participating in 2012’s test day, has been officially invited to race in the 2013 24 hours endurance race.  Very interesting stuff indeed.

Here’s Green’s highlights of their race car as per their website:

– No pollutants
– No emissions of gas or CO2, or NOx
– Renewable energy

– The hydrogen comes from the electrolysis of water. The water is then recomposed during the production of electricity in   the fuel cell. This same water can then be used again to re-produce the hydrogen.

– GreenGT H2 is expected to reach a speed close to 300km/h. With its on-board electrical control system, the GreenGT H2 can run for 40 min and its new electronic control system allows optimized cornering speeds.

Mercedes-Benz goes SUPER retro! F-Cell Roadster Concept

mercedes-benz-f-cell-roadster-15

Going back to the 60s for design? MB has decided that it’s going back to the 80s………..the 1880s! The new F-Cell Roadster Concept takes the design from the original, first car ever produced in the world—-the 1886 buggy made by Mercedes Benz!

Full details are not out yet, but the car is controlled by a joystick,  has a top speed of only 25 km/h, and a hydrogen fuel cell technology for power.  I really dig the stitched leather seats, which are laying over the carbon fibre seats (imagine that on a 1886 car!).  The body is composed of lightweight carbon fibre and F1 type fibreglass.  Very interesting stuff…click here to see more photos!
