Do you remember the Pininfarina H2 concept car that debuted at this year’s Geneva Motor Show? Well, the extravagant car appears to be more than just thin air, as the Italian design house recently announced it will actually be produced.
Now, the Pininfarina H2 Speed is as exquisite as they come. Only 10 examples will be produced and they will be designated for track-use only. Taking such a car to production would be a very bold move if the Italian company didn’t already have a few buyers lined up. The concept car however was one of the eye-catchers of the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and got plenty of people interested in purchasing one.
What’s required is money and patience. $2.5 million is a substantial amount of money and buyers will have to wait a while before they can finally take delivery of their ultra rare track toy. A full working prototype should be done by early next year and from then on it would take another year to 14 months for the first production vehicles to roll off the assembly line.
The H2 Speed seems to be well worth waiting for though. Built on a Le Mans Prototype 2 racing chassis homologated for FIA competition, the powertrain of the track car will be pure green with two electric motors delivering a steady 503 hp to the vehicle’s rear wheels. Pininfarina CEO Silvio Pietro Angori concluded by saying: “this is a racing car for gentleman drivers.”
