There have been a few electric proposals for future Le Mans races but this Pagani is one of the first that harnesses hydrogen power! Called the Ganador (Spanish for “winner”), it races ahead using a monstrous V12 hydrogen-powered prototype engine.
It’s wicked aesthetic looks like a bullet on wheels, with an elongated, enclosed cockpit that protects the driver (even using internal heat-sensing tech to monitor their condition) from wind and the elements without obstructing views.
Other innovations include carbon-fiber wind flaps that act as air brakes, wind-turbine wheels that collect wind energy for reuse, and hard/soft hybrid tires that allow the driver to continue lapping at high speeds before heading to the pit!
