For now, the Alpine Alpenglow concept car is not a household name in the car world. But this hydrogen-powered car is an absolute beauty.

We got the opportunity to check this beauty out as it hit the road for the first time.

Everyone gathered around to catch a glimpse of this one-of-a-kind automobile, clicking photos and making videos.

It’s reminiscent of the Citroen GT concept, which brought Paris to a standstill with its presence.

It’s as if the Alpine Alpenglow is made to turn the heads with its futuristic looks.

One of the most striking features of the car is its headlights, aptly named ‘cosmic dust.’

It’s as if someone has painted this extraordinary design on the car and they are just there for looks.

However, these lights actually work.

Have you ever seen a suspension on the top of the bonnet?

Well, Alpine Alpenglow has one, and interestingly, it looks kind of cool.

There’s also a red line in the middle of the bonnet, attached to a triangle inside, adding to its futuristic look.

This design is basically inspired by the sunrise in the Alps, and the transparent spoiler proudly displays the Alpine name.

The tail lights and alloys mirror the design language of the headlights, making the car look unified and striking.

Stepping into the car might prove a bit tricky, and the height is also quite low. But once you’re in, the experience is unmatched.

The sound of the car is also not worth ignoring. Despite being hydrogen-powered, the sound of the Alpine Alpenglow concept is pretty amazing.

This hydrogen-powered concept car was first introduced in October 2022.

Originally, it had an 880 horsepower V8 engine.

But now, the updated version comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine that produces 340 horsepower.

With a top speed of 167 mph, Alpine Alpenglow is not competing with the fastest cars of the era.

But it is certainly bringing a revolution by mixing speed, sustainability, and design.
