Pininfarina Battista, The world’s first environmentally-friendly hypercar
Automobili Pininfarina celebrates the world debut of Battista Anniversario, a strictly limited version of the pure-electric Battista hypercar, created in celebration of 90 years of visionary Italian design. Battista Anniversario is the ultimate design expression of the most powerful road-legal Italian car ever made. Just five Battista Anniversario cars are to be built, priced from €2.6 million.
The Battista Anniversario is presented in unique Pininfarina heritage-inspired design theme with aerodynamic enhancements. With new forged aluminium wheels and performance-oriented tyres top speed increases to 350km/h (217mph). No more than 150 Battista hypercars, including the five Anniversario cars, to be hand-crafted in Italy and expected to enter into production by the end of 2020.
With no more than five cars to be hand-built in Cambiano, Italy, the Battista Anniversario is destined to become the fastest and most powerful car ever built in Italy. The Anniversario is the ultimate expression of the Battista hypercar, with enhanced dynamic abilities based on an aerodynamic package and unique heritage-inspired livery that blends signature Pininfarina styling cues with a new array of design elements crafted by Automobili Pininfarina’s design team.
The world premiere of Battista Anniversario in Geneva comes as the dynamic testing phase of Battista accelerates, with impressive early results: powertrain prototypes of the 1,900 hp (1,400 kW) pure-electric hyper GT are already achieving 80% of its phenomenal performance capability, with further tests scheduled in the hands of legendary racer Nick Heidfeld, now Development Driver with Automobili Pininfarina. During the summer of 2020, a very limited number of potential customers will also have the opportunity to experience the Battista’s thrilling performance at exclusive test drive events.
The Battista Anniversario will form the centrepiece of Automobili Pininfarina’s presence at the Geneva International Motor Show between 3rd – 15th March, located on Stand 1243 in Hall 2. Media guests are cordially invited to attend an on-stand pre-show preview between 17:00 and 19:00 on Monday 2nd March and a press conference, shared with Pininfarina SpA, between 11:30 and 12:00 on Tuesday 3rd March.
The Battista Anniversario sprints faster than a current Formula 1 car, accelerating from rest to 62mph in under two seconds and up to 186mph in under 12 seconds, yet still promises a zero-emissions range of more 310 miles (500 km).
