Aston Martin is planning to mark its entry in the Hybrid car segment with an explosion triggered by racing its record-breaking Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S at Nurburgring in the coming month. The latest car featuring four doors, four-seats are foremost in its category to contend in this global affair. It is also the first sports car with no CO2 discharge.
The Hybrid car has a prototype twin turbocharged 6 L V-12 engine. Aston Martin’s experts collaborated with hydrogen pioneer Alset Global on this particular project. Aston Martin’s dedication to automobile innovation is showcased by this hybrid car. Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S as the name signifies it can run on unadulterated gasoline, clean hydrogen, or a mixture of both. The automobile company plans to demonstrate that zero CO2 levels are achievable in a lap of Nordschleife with only water as byproduct with the hydrogen fuel.
Presenting their technology at Nurburgring which is also pet named as the Green Hell is one of the most challenging and dangerous circuits on this planet. Aston Martin will be tested for their consistency and protection in the present hydrogen scenario.
The Aston Martin chief Head expressed his happiness as he mentioned that they are celebrating their centenary this year and they are looking forward for improving the style, design and give it a perfect look. It is known that Aston Martin has been known for its innovations and the history supports the strong competition. He also alleged that presenting the car in Nurburgring in 24 –hour race proves the modern technology.
At the fuel rail hydrogen as fuel is used, the storage tank and proper management system in engines has been incorporated into the new system of Hybrid Hydrogen . This aids in controlling the process of combustion by using pure hydrogen, or gasoline or a mixture of both can also be used. The main objective is to make sure that there is optimum power, reduce CO2 emission and greater acceleration. This will certainly keep in control the propulsion system which supports the performance of the car.
For Aston Martin , safety is the main factor that is taken into consideration. This includes four carbon fiber that is extremely strong and can store 3.5 kg of hydrogen at a high pressure of 350 bar. The two tanks are placed near the driver and the boot of the car.
