Nissan 370 Z-HYDRO Marangoni: blue water and tyres.
Following huge media success in 2009 and 2008 with the Alfa MiTo M430 and the Fiat 5.0.0., a new very high level show car was developed in 2010. Z-HYDRO is the name given to the new demo car, has a 20" concept design tyres and uses an innovative “energy from water” supply kit.
Naturally, the 2010 car would not have been complete without the now traditional coloured tyres, and following last year’s red, the choice this time was blue, the colour of water, as well has having always been the Marangoni Group’s corporate colour. For this captivating vehicle, has developed a 20” concept design tyre, which will be the source of inspiration for the Marangoni M-Power, the new Marangoni ultra highperformance product.
Z-HYDRO is thus shod with "Marangoni M Power – Blue” concept tyres, in 245/30R20 and 285/25R20 sizes, using a special compound with a very high silica content that minimises rolling resistance and consequently fuel consumption.
Z-HYDRO is not however just about design, style and power, but is also a demonstration of technological advancement and ecology.The main technological advancement, and the inspiration for the name Z-HYDRO, is the inclusion of a process which produces a gas called HHO or Oxyhydrogen, and uses an innovative “energy from water” supply kit. This advanced technology works in symbiosis with the car’s original engine and minimises harmful emissions and specifically unburned hydrocarbons, which are practically eliminated.
Yet that’s not all, as Oxyhydrogen also significantly decreases the vehicle’s fuel consumption, without compromising on engine power. Amazingly this system relies on one basic raw material…. water! A dream? No! Simply further testimony of the Marangoni Group’s drive to innovate, through researching new solutions, verifying their feasibility and promoting them, just like in the case of this new and fascinating interpretation of high technology represented by the Z-HYDRO. The tuning project was, as before, handled by the Florence based TRC Italia in an astonishingly short time, given the recent market launch of the Nissan 370Z R34, the vehicle that the Z-HYDRO is based on.
