The BMW H2R "Hydrogen Record Car" is one of the first of a new breed of racecars adapted to run on liquid hydrogen fuel. Conceived and developed in the relatively short time of 10 months under the direction of Dr. Raymond Freymann, it has set nine international speed records at the Miramas Proving Grounds in France.
The H2R’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine, which draws on BMW's Valvetronic and Double-VANOS technology, is based on the 760i’s gasoline-fueled powerplant. This H2-powered high performer generates 232 horsepower (173 kW), helping it to achieve a top speed of over 187.62 mph (301.95 km/h).
On the high-speed track at Miramas the BMW H2R set nine international and FIA-ratified records with hydrogen combustion engines.
