The BMW H2R “Hydrogen Record Car” is a racecar adapted to run on liquid hydrogen fuel. It was conceived and developed in 10 months under the direction of Dr. Raymond Freymann.

The H2R’s 6.0-liter V12 engine, which draws on BMW’s Valvetronic and Double-VANOS technology, is based on the 760i’s gasoline-fueled powerplant. This H2-powered vehicle generates 232 horsepower and achieved a top speed of 301.95 km/h.

The H2R was originally designed to run on gasoline, but BMW decided to switch to hydrogen in order to demonstrate its potential. At the heart of the BMW H2R lies a modified 6.0-liter V12 engine, the same one used in the BMW 760i of those years.


The V12 was then specifically engineered to run on hydrogen fuel where one of the main modifications included adapting a fuel injection system capable of handling hydrogen, featuring integrated injection valves within the intake manifolds.//19Bozzy92
