The Pininfarina H2 Speed is a Hydrogen-powered concept electric vehicle.
- Text originally from pininfarina.it.
Extraordinary performance, sportiness and pure, environmentally responsible driving fun. Its name is H2 Speed and it is Pininfarina’s innovative vision of a high-performance track car based on revolutionary hydrogen fuel cell technology already subjected to severe track testing by GreenGT, a Franco-Swiss company which has been designing, developing and producing clean, sustainable propulsion systems since 2008. H2 Speed will appeal to passionate people who love speed, performance and innovation and, at the same time, are attracted by the exclusivity typical of a Pininfarina-designed vehicle produced in a limited series. Halfway between a racing prototype and a production supercar, the H2 Speed is the world’s first hydrogen, high-performance car.
It is not by coincidence that its name joins together H2, the formula for gaseous hydrogen, and the English word Speed, as if to say that it is the force and energy of Nature that generates the vehicle’s high performance, fostering the excitement that is typical of passion and sport. Seduced by GreenGT technology, Pininfarina has applied its mastery to express a style that communicates uncompromising beauty and a unique allure, combined with extreme performance. A pure beautiful form, free of any stylistic affectation. Sculpted by efficiency-boosting aerodynamics, the H2 Speed weds blistering performance to refined lines and shapes integrated in a form of strong emotional impact which embraces the driver and represents the best possible expression of Pininfarina DNA: purity, elegance, innovation expressed through the passion that has always pervaded the world of high-performance cars.
The Pininfarina H2 Speed appears as a high-end Class C car with the following rank statistics:
The H2 Speed has well-rounded stats with decent top speed, good acceleration, above-average nitro boost, decent drifting radius, and poor nitro efficiency; the latter is improved when upgraded to 3*. As of the Slipstream Update, the H2 has been buffed in top speed, handling, and nitro but has been nerfed in acceleration. The H2 Speed is a well-rounded car that has been superseded by subsequent Class C additions.
If driven correctly, the H2 Speed can beat the Acura NSX, Artega Scalo Superelletra, Mercedes-AMG GT S, Vencer Sarthe, and on occasions, the Arrinera Hussarya. However, the Arrinera is better on most tracks, while the AMG, Sarthe, and Acura are faster on tracks with long straights. Furthermore, the Acura and Artega have faster acceleration with similar top speeds.
The H2 Speed is similarly viable for multiplayer but will struggle when the player reaches Gold League as it will be put into races with the Apollo N, SCG 003S, Ford GT, and Lamborghini Asterion; none of which the H2 Speed can compete against.
The Pininfarina H2 Speed was added in the 2019 Spring Update as a high-end Class C car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1213
- MAX rank: 1418 (+205)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1552 (+134)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +62
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 339
- Upgrade rank percentages:
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
The Pininfarina H2 Speed has good performance in all areas, with a total speed of 427.6 km/h / 265.5 mph, decent drifting radius, stable handling, above-average acceleration, and long nitro duration.
The performance of the H2 Speed is similar to the Sbarro Sparta and the Nissan 370Z Special Edition. Like both vehicles, the H2 Speed is slightly inferior to the Maserati Alfieri. However, all three are unable to compete with the MV Agusta F4 1000 R, which has the highest top speed for Class C with Supercharged nitro and has a decent total top speed.
Due to its well-balanced characteristics, the Pininfarina H2 Speed is the dominant Class C vehicle in some variants of Orbital Loop, being able to achieve lap times slightly faster than the Nissan 370Z Special Edition.
In the 1400-1500 range, the H2 Speed can compete with the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic.
The Pininfarina H2 Speed is only obtainable by completing its R&D event. Between November 8-12, 2019, it was made available for 7,500, 25% off its full price of 10,000. After the 2019 Halloween Update, it was sold as an exclusive vehicle for 6,500.
