The word

GreenGT LMP H2

The car is powered by a 300kW fuel cell and carries 12 liters of compressed hydrogen gas at 10,000 psi. It's pre-race prototype has a 100kW fuel cell for demonstration and testing purposes. It will sport 300kW by race time.

Six time Le Mans driver and 2-time winner Christian Pescatori will be driving the car for the race. The H2 will be made through solar electrolysis, so the hydrogen will be emissions-free during the race.
