Hyperion XP-1 - hydrogen monster of 1000 hp

Hyperion has unveiled its new XP-1 prototype, which resembles a Bugatti that landed from space.


Described as the first chapter in the company's long-term vision to promote hydrogen as a new fuel, XP-1 is considered "the pinnacle of ten years of testing and research in hydrogen technology by over 200 researchers and scientists."

Starting with the exterior, the XP-1 has a bold design that will drive people crazy in a positive way. The company did not reveal too many details, but the model features a composite body reinforced with titanium and has a "vortex" air intake.

The car also has a "v-wing" door and a glass canopy that can be colored electronically for privacy. Other prominent ingredients include Kevlar's composite diffuser, LED lighting and active aerodynamic side spoilers that help improve cornering at high speeds. The sides are covered with solar panels, and Hyperion said they could be "articulated to follow the path of the sun."

The XP-1 rides on 20- and 21-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires. They are supported by massive carbon ceramic discs measuring 18 inches (457 mm) at the front and 17 inches (432 mm) at the rear.

Although we only got a few insights into the interior, Hyperion said the model has a 98-inch (2,489mm) curved display and motion control technology. Other highlights include carbon fiber and titanium details as well as carbon fiber seats wrapped in hand-sewn leather.

The company said the XP-1 will rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km / h) in less than 2.2 seconds and reach a top speed above 221 mph (356 km / h). The car also has a range of 1,635 km (it can be charged in less than five minutes).

The model promises to be extremely light as it will weigh around 1,032kg thanks to a carbon titanium cockpit and lightweight body.

The Hyperion XP-1 will go into production in 2022 and only 300 units will be made.
