Aston Martin Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S to race at Nurburgring

by SpeedLux

Aston Martin has recently announced plans to race a Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S at ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring scheduled to be held next month.

The alternative-fueled car is based on the 2013 Aston Martin Rapide S and can run on gasoline, pure gaseous hydrogen or a combination of both. The car’s hybrid-hydrogen system consists of a hydrogen fuel rail, storage tanks and engine management system. It comes with four high-strength carbon fiber tanks which can hold 3.5 kg of hydrogen stored at a 350-bar pressure. Two of them are located next to the driver while the other two are in the boot.

The Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S will be the first hydrogen-powered vehicle to take part in an international event and also the first zero-emissions sports car to complete a race pace lap at the Nürburgring 24-hours.

The 41st ADAC Zurich Nürburgring 24 Hours will be held on May 19-20, 2013 with 25 km track which represents a combination of the Nordschleife and the modern grand prix track.
