What happens when drag racing moves beyond internal combustion and
nitrous oxide? The Hyundai Greenspeed Gator, which pushes the
boundaries of design and fuel cell performance. Inspired by the top
fuel racers of the ‘60s, this alien shape is rooted in pure
function. The overall design consists of a main fuselage with
integrated roll protection and “seat sling” that hangs underneath,
tied together by a center spine chassis with integral fuel cells.
The giant hood blisters house the hydrogen storage tanks, and the
rear wheels house gargantuan electric motors.
