About two weeks ago, Aston Martin unveiled the Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S , which has been announced to race the 41st ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring next month. It looks like the company didn’t want to wait that long and it took the prototype to Nordschleife for a testing session.
The test was completed on Saturday, April 27th when Aston Martin wrote a new page in history, as the Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S became the first hydrogen-fueled model to lap the 24 km (14-mile) Nordschleife circuit in Germany with zero CO2 emissions. Behind the wheel was Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ulrich Bez.
After this test, the Hybrid Hydrogenfour-door sedan will also become the first hydrogen-powered car to compete in an international event and the first zero CO2 emission car to pace the Nürburgring 24-hour race. The car will compete in the experimental class (E1-XP) after passing rigorous technical and safety tests.
