Viritech, a UK-based company specializing in hydrogen power units, has unveiled the final production version of its Appricale hypercar with a 1073 hp FCEV power unit weighing less than 1,000 kg and Pininfarina style whole. Appricale debuted at the Speedwood Festival in Goodwood before launching in early 2024.

Thanks to Viritech’s Graph-Pro technology, which uses lightweight composites and a graphene-supported resin system, the hydrogen tanks are a structural component of the carbon fiber chassis that simultaneously reduces weight. “Fuel cells of several hundred kW” and tiny “lithium-ion batteries of heavy-duty batteries with a capacity of 6 kW · g” provide energy to dual electric motors (one on each axis).

The target range range is 350 miles (560 km) between refueling 700-bar hydrogen tanks with a capacity of 5.4 kg (11.9 lbs). Matt Folks, a former Formula 1 engineer and co-founder of Viritech, said the goal was to keep the weight low and to drive was fun. In this context, the hypercar has front and rear suspension on double levers with torsion actuators. The brakes include 390 mm (15.4 inches) carbon composite discs with AP Racing calipers.

The system has a total capacity of 1073 liters. According to Viritech, the model accelerates from 0-97 km / h (0-60 mph) in less than 2.5 seconds, and its top speed will exceed 322 km / h (200 mph).

The hydrogen hypercar has been completely recycled compared to previous version from 2021. He saves In the style of Koenigsegg windshield, but now comes with a new face, a pair of aggressive LED headlights, large bumpers and an F1-style fender. At the rear we find slim LED taillights, a built-in spoiler, double ribs on the roof line and honeycomb patterns on the blue-painted rear bumper that looks like a massive diffuser. The length of the hypercar is 4550 mm (179.1 inches), the width is 1900 mm (74.8 inches) and the height is 1150 mm (45.3 inches).

Viritech Apricale will be available in limited quantities of 25 units using Pininfarina. The car reports that the model will cost around £ 1.5 million ($ 1.8 million) without taxes. Deliveries will begin in early 2024 after extensive testing and start of production in 2023.

In addition to the low-suspension car, Viritech demonstrated a SUV concept called Tellaro, showcasing the potential of using their FCEV technology. Viritech will supply hydrogen power units to other companies including BACin the “sustainable transport application”.
