Pininfarina celebrates 90 years with a special edition Battista hypercar
Mahindra-owned AutomobiliPininfarina has launched Battista Anniversario, the world’s first luxury pure-electric hyper GT
AutomobiliPininfarina’s stunning Battista Anniversario celebrates 90 years of automotive design and performance. This ultimate expression of Battista, the Anniversario, is the distillation of everything that the brand has stood for.
The Anniversario models are handmade in Cambiano, Turin.According to Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of PininfarinaSpA, the Battista embodies timeless design and is a piece of art as much as high end mobility technology .
At the inaugural Concours Virtual, AutomobiliPininfarina CEO PerSvantesson said: “Throughout a challenging period, our engineers and experts across the business have worked tirelessly to ensure we bring Battista to life this year.”
High on speed
With a time of less than two seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h, the Battista is faster than a current Formula 1 car. It combines extreme engineering and technology in a zero- emissions package. Its four electric motors generate 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm of torque. According to Michael Perschke, CEO, AutomobiliPininfarina, the Battista represents purity, beauty, rarity, and a vision for sustainability that appeals to the heart as much as the head.
The signature look
The five Anniversario models are each painted in a combination of three heritage-influenced signature colours -- Bianco Sestriere, GrigioAntonellianoand IconicaBlu. The monocoque and carbon fibre body form the foundation of this sports car.
Some of the bespoke details include forged aluminium wheels with central locking, aero fins and a bespoke rear wing, unique seats made from sustainably manufactured black leather and black Alcantara, ‘Anniversario’ lettering on the fenders, distinctive ‘Pininfarina 90’ logos and a specially engraved nameplate between the seats.
At the launch, Paolo Dellacha - Chief Product and Engineering Officer, AutomobiliPininfarina explained the objectives and processes of his dedicated engineering team as they accelerated technical development of the 1,900 hp, pure electric Battista.
The Pininfarina website has hosted videos that give an inside look at the complex engineering that went into building one of the quickest cars on the planet. Production and deliveries are expected to commence by the end of this year.
