Aston Martin has recently released the very first details of the Rapide S Hybrid Hydrogen, which will race on the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of the Nurburgring, next month.

According to the British based automaker, the Aston Martin Rapide S Hybrid Hydrogen is based on the 2013 Aston Martin Rapide S and the model can run on either gasoline, hydrogen, or on a combination between the two. The racer has four high-strength carbon fiber tanks which can hold 3.5 kg of hydrogen stored at 350-bar pressure, and two of them have been positioned in the boot, while the other two can be found near the driver.

“As we celebrate our centenary in 2013 and look back on a century of excitement, innovation and style it’s also the perfect time to look to the future with this astonishing race car”, said Ulrich Bez, the Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer.

The Aston Martin Rapide S Hybrid Hydrogen will take part in the ADAC Zurich Nurburgring 24 Hours on the 19th and 20th of May, for the eighth year in a row. The race car will tackle 150 other vehicles on the 25 km track which is a combination of the Nordschleife and the modern grand prix track.
