Now that hydrogen vehicles are on the road, it's time to see them on the track. Pininfarina says it has developed the "first hydrogen high-performance track car in the world" with its new H2 Speed.

The Pininfarina H2 Speed is "halfway between a competition prototype and a production supercar," according to the company. It uses two electric motors in tandem with a lightweight fuel cell for zero-emissions driving. Pininfarina hasn't provided many other details about the car, except that it uses a brake regen system. Much like other hydrogen cars, it's said to emit a sound reminiscent of something out of a science fiction flick.

Pininfarina developed the car using technology from GreenGT, which has produced alternative powertrains since 2008. After developing the GreenGT electric vehicle, it created the GreenGT H2 hydrogen fuel cell competition prototype with a twin-engine powertrain producing 540 hp. The demonstration racer was destined as an experimental "Garage 56" entry at the 24 Hours of Le Mans a few years ago, but pulled out before the competition.

The H2 Speed comes fresh off Pininfarina's announced sale to Mahindra & Mahindra. The H2 Speed takes a different turn from other recent concepts from Pininfarina like the roofless Sergio concept and Cambiano sedan concept.
