The American company Hyperion Motors on Wednesday, August 12, declassified the XP-1 hydrogen supercar.

The model is currently designated as a concept, but it is already known that it will be produced in the United States, and sales of the supercar will start in 2022.

The novelty will get carbon-ceramic brakes with discs with a diameter of 457 mm in front and 432 mm in the rear. For a surcharge, composite wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires will be offered. Solar panels are integrated into the movable “wings”, which can change their position relative to the path of the sun.

The interior of the novelty is modern. Thus, a curved 98-inch screen is expected to appear on the central tunnel. The salon was trimmed with carbon fiber, titanium and natural leather.

The Hyperion XP-1 unit will consist of multiple electric motors, a supercapacitor, a fuel cell module and a 3-speed transmission. To store hydrogen, carbon fiber cylinders are provided, the reserve of which will be sufficient to cover the distance of up to 1635 km without refueling. The novelty will be able to accelerate to 97 km / h in 2.2 seconds and accelerate to more than 355 km / h.

Hyperion XP-1 will be released in the amount of 300 units. Customers will be offered a wide personalization program. Deliveries are scheduled for early 2022, while the cost is currently unknown.

In addition, a render image of the Italian supercar Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm was recently circulated on the Internet. It should be emphasized that the Ferrari 488 Pista supercar was chosen as the basis for the project.
