When the Pininfarina Battista arrives in 2020, it will be the most powerful street-legal car ever designed and built in Italy. Only 150-units will be manufactured, all powered by a Rimac-sourced 120 kWh battery pack that sends power to four electric motors that develop a combined maximum output of 1,900hp and 1,696 lb-ft of torque, enabling the electric hypercar to accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 2-seconds. Don’t be fooled by its massive power, the vehicle has as 280-mile range on a single charge. Read more for another video, additional pictures and information.
On the inside, you’ll find a carbon fiber steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster with two large displays on each side, ambient lighting, and plenty of quilted leather, aluminum as well as carbon fiber accents. Stepping back outside, a set of 21-inch lightweight wheels and six-piston carbon-ceramic braking system complement its carbon fiber monocoque chassis.
Automobili Pininfarina CEO, Michael Perschke: “This is the most authentic and exciting automotive story imaginable. The Battista is the hypercar of the future, inspired by a legendary past. It combines true inspiration and innovation in its technical achievement and emotional appeal. Electrification unlocks the door to a new level of performance and a zero-emissions future, whilst a passion and respect for automotive history will define how this landmark car looks and feels. We aim for the Battista to be a future classic and automotive icon, writing its own page in automotive history books.”
