GreenGT has been invited by the ACO (Automobile Club de L’Ouest, the Le Mans governing body) to race its LMPH2, a fuel cell prototype, at next year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, reports Autocar. The LMPH2 features hydrogen fuel cells which produce electricity to drive its electric motor – 402bhp, in the final competition car. Its only emissions are water vapour and it will be able to carry 12kg of hydrogen in its high-pressure tanks.
“The unique and patented GreenGT drive train, which is capable of torque vectoring, will see a Le Mans evolution from a technical standpoint,” says the Swiss firm, also the supplier of the electric powertrain for Citroen’s Survolt concept. Keep an eye on the GreenGT blog for further developments.
