Hydrogen-burning Alpenglow hypercar is about to go endurance racing

• New Atlas

It'll make its dynamic debut next month at the Spa-Francorchamps 6 Hours endurance event in Belgium, running its hydrogen combustion engine on its first public outing.

While some auto industry insiders and observers have all but dismissed hydrogen's potential as a planet-protecting solution, a few notable players have been quite actively pursuing its use, both for fuel cell-electric powertrains and H2-fueled combustion engines. There's been particular interest in hydrogen combustion in the racing world, where traditionalists are loath to see the visceral feel and thundering roar of the combustion engine vanish in favor of a more sterile all-electric racing future.
