Automobili Pininfarina creates bespoke sonic experiences in partnership with Naim

Mahindra-owned Automobili Pininfarina, the luxury electric vehicles brand, has announced a partnership with Naim Audio to provide a higher-level sonic experience for Battista hypercar owners.

After redefining electric hypercars with the creation of the incredible Battista, Automobili Pininfarina, the deluxe Italian hypercar brand, has now partnered with leading audio company Naim Audio to create a bespoke sonic experience for owners of the Battista.

Rene Wollmann, Automobili Pininfarina Director of Sportscars, said: “Our clients are eagerly anticipating the unprecedented 1,900 PS driving performance of the Battista and now we will provide an equally thrilling 1,300 watts in-car sound experience for their pleasure.”

Every Battista pure-electric hypercar will be hand-crafted in Cambiano, near Turin, Italy. The cars will be delivered to clients worldwide beginning in early 2021. No more than 150 of these masterpieces of design will be created, each specified with a bespoke in-car sound system by the award-winning Naim Audio.

The engineers and designers of Automobili Pininfarina have seamlessly integrated new Naim Audio speakers and associated electronics into the luxurious interior of Battista.

The incredible 1,300 watts of sonic power is delivered through 10 speakers arranged inside the exquisitely appointed cabin of Automobili Pininfarina’s first pure-electric car. The new sound system features a dual voice coil subwoofer located between the driver and passenger seats.Super-tweeters amplifying higher frequencies are situated behind the seats and in the panels of Battista’s dramatic butterfly doors.

Charlie Henderson, Managing Director, Naim Audio, said: “I am thrilled that our first EV hypercar audio system has been created specifically for the ground-breaking Battista by Automobili Pininfarina. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to create an all-new sound experience that is as revolutionary as Battista itself. Using the finest components from audiophile-grade automotive speakers, alongside our expertise in DSP and audio tuning, Battista will offer an exceptional sonic experience.”
