Aston Martin Racing and Alset Partner for Hydrogen-Fueled Rapide S
With the introduction of its latest Aston Martin Rapide S, the Brits are going racing. But not just any racing- oh no, Aston Martin and Alset Global (a technology and engineering company), have decided to give the Rapide a hydrogen-capable engine for the Nurburgring 24 Hours, taking place later next month. That's right, hydrogen.
The twin-turbocharged system- in addition to its hydrogen capabilities- will also burn standard racing fuel, either in tandem with hydrogen or separately. With the Rapide S prototype currently under development, Alset promises to "make history" with the first ever hydrogen-powered lap of the ring.

As both companies currently work to perfect the prototype for racing, we can't wait to see this big, beautiful green sedan out on the track in due time.
