It turns out the Delta Wing concept won't be the only experimental car to run the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans. The hyrdrogen fuel cell electrc GreenGT LMPH2 prototype racer will also join the grid next year.

So what is the LMPH2? As the name suggests, it's a hydrogen-powered Le Mans Prototype sports racer. Likely to rate at least as strong as the previous 402 horsepower (300kW) prototype, the car won't be far behind its combustion-engined complements.

It's clear from the video below that even the previous "300KW" prototype car is capable of both serious acceleration and impressive speed around the Le Mans circuit. We're looking forward to see what kind of performance--and endurance--the
LMPH2 will bring.

    Bad stuff?

  2. It is correct to call hydrogen "fuel" here for it undergoes a chemical transformation that yields electricity as a product. So, what actually powers the car is electricity. There is however a BMW that in addition to burn gasoline, it can also burn hydrogen as a substitute. This engine can burn hydrogen the same way "flex" cars can burn E-85

  3. Nice looking car but I thought ACO did away with the cage in the back and went to full fledged cover for driver's back by rear "engine" cover. When this car races, it definitely need to show much faster speed too if it wants to be competitive with other cars for overall bragging rights. I understand that this is a dry run debuting a year before the race, but would like to see some real good speed come 2012.
