Alpine’s Alpenglow hydrogen concept car will make its dynamic on-track debut as part of joint demonstration with the ACO’s H24 project at next month’s 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps.

The French manufacturer’s concept car, powered by a  hydrogen internal combustion engine, will take to the track for three laps in the pre-race buildup for the third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

It will be joined on track by the ACO’s H24 concept, which has been developed as part of the MissionH24 program and previously appeared in Free Practice sessions for select Michelin Le Mans Cup rounds.

H24 notably differs from the Alpenglow concept from a technical standpoint, as the the ADESS LMP3-based car uses fuel cell technology.

The Alpenglow, meanwhile, is closer to Toyota’s GR H2 Racing Concept revealed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last year in that it features a combustion engine powered by hydrogen.

Alpine has stated that the car will also feature “an all-new design,” with a static reveal taking place on the Friday ahead of the race.

In addition to its Spa demonstration, the ACO has previously announced that an on-track hydrogen exhibition will take place prior at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
