Pininfarina Battista: The Italian coachbuilder’s first model is eventually unveiled in its final form.
The Pininfarina Battista, which will be on display at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, has been shown in photos and claims to be a revolution in the world of electric supercars.
Initially unveiled as a concept car called “Pininfarina PF-Zero” in 2018, the Battista edition evolved into a more concrete idea, with a projected production start in 2020, which was later postponed because to the global pandemic.
The model, whose name pays homage to Pininfarina’s founder Gian-Battista Pinin Farina and commemorates the company’s 90th anniversary, already has impressive performance for a fully electric vehicle: The car can achieve 350 km/h with a 0 to 100 km/h time of less than 2 seconds and a 0 to 300 km/h time of under 12 seconds, with a top speed of 402 km/h and a range of 500 km.
Pininfarina’s bodywork and aerodynamics experts used a combination of passive and active aerodynamic appendages to assure the Battista’s stability at all speeds, along with a six-piston carbon-ceramic brake system at all four wheels, to reach such results.
Pininfarina, as a specialist in customization, considers it a point of honor to provide each of its customers a limitless number of permutations, so you may drive a car that precisely suits your needs: there are more than 128 million possibilities (yes, yes).
Pininfarina Battista is priced at 2.26 million dollars (almost 2 million euros).
