Automobili Pininfarina, a part of the Mahindra Group, has just unveiled its limited-edition Battista Anniversario, touted to be the first luxury, pure-electric, hyper GT. It will be the most powerful sports car to have ever been designed and built in Italy. Only five of these ultimate design expressions will be created, making the Anniversario – priced from €2.6 million – one of the world’s most exclusive automobiles.
To be hand-crafted in Cambiano, near Turin in Italy, the Anniversario celebrates the Pininfarina heritage-inspired design with aerodynamic enhancements, and can accelerate from 0 to 300km/h in less than 12 seconds. A new wheel design with centre-lock forged aluminium wheels reduces the unsprung weight of the Anniversario by almost 10kg, further sharpening the automobile’s handling dynamism.
21-inch rear wheels, performance-oriented tyres, and new rims enable the car to reach its top speed of 350km (217mph). Four electric motors generate 1,900hp and 2,300 Nm of torque, sent to each wheel by the most advanced torque vectoring system, allowing the Anniversario to achieve a level of performance that is unbeatable by any road-legal sports car with an internal combustion engine.
