Hydrogen fuel cell sports car.


This concept was an attempt to see what was realistically achievable for a small sports car powered by hydrogen, with LM Prototype-inspired underbody aerodynamics and a carbon chassis. Inspired by my grandfather, who was part of the team who built the first fuel-cell car, back in 1967. 


The attraction of fuel cells over battery-electric is that the vehicle can be fully refuled in under 5 minutes, rather than the several hours required to fully charge even the latest battery-powered vehicles. 


The car would be compact - about the same size as a Lotus Elise - and weigh around 1100kg, but the punch from the three electric motors (more than 1000Nm of torque) and four-wheel-drive would see it accelerate as fast as many $1m+ hypercars.
