Aston Martin completed its world first hydrogen-fuelled zero CO2 emission lap of the Nürburgring circuit in Germany.

The lap was completed on Saturday April 27 with Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer Dr Ulrich Bez at the wheel of the prototype Aston Martin Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S.

According to Aston Martin, it turned out to be a perfect test run ahead of a formal record-breaking attempt at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring (N24), to be held next month.

Aston Martin engineers were using the four-hour ADAC ACAS H&R-Cup VLN series race as a shake-down and test session ahead of the grueling 24 hour race next month.

The Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S will line-up next month alongside a field of some 200-plus GT cars.

Hydrogen-Hybrid Aston Martin Aces Shakedown Run? A very expensive and useless vehicle for me and hydrogen is a very expensive fuel too! When a cheaper way for hydrogen to be made has been found, then that fuel expense will go down. Meanwhile, back to the track!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Somehow those that can afford this sort of car probably don't really care about zero emissions. It's probably more about "show boating" for them.

I am ready to see a car capable of running on pure gasoline, pure gaseous hydrogen, or a blend of both.

Just lower the price of gasoline. All these so-called improvements just make cars cost more. The price of one of these is so great the savings won't offset the cost.
