The Automobili Pininfarina announced recently the name of its upcoming electric hyper car, which it’ll call the Battista.
Previously known as the PFO, the car is called for Battista, Pininfarina creator of the Pininfarina coach building company, which eventually made into the into the industrial design home of now.
This is really a dream come true. My grandfather forever had the vision that 1 day there’d be a standalone collection of Pininfarina branded vehicles, Stated Pininfarina SPA CEO Paolo Pininfarina, a grandson of Battista.
This hyper car will boast world-beating performance, innovation of tech and surely elegant styling. For me, we simply had to name it Battista. His vision becomes reality now as we connect our glorious past with the next of motoring.
The Pininfarina promises the Batista will be Italy’s one of the most powerful and speedy car ever. Liberal use of carbon fiber will hold weight to solid aluminum in spite of the huge batteries required to power the drive train, which Pininfarina says will develop a staggering, 1.9k hp pound-feet of torque.
This electric flows to the land via an all-wheel-drive ecosystem that’ll catapult Battista from 0-60 mph in less than 2 seconds, and on a peak speed exceeding 250 miles per hour. When not driving flat out, Battista should be able of a range exceeding 3 hundred miles on a complete charge.
The price of the car is expected to sit somewhere among 2.2 to 2.5 million each car, of which Pininfarina will make no more than 150 cars. Of these 150, 50 sold in Europe, 50 in the US, and 50 in the middle east and Asia.
Public reveal of Battista is planned for the 2019 Geneva global Motor show in Mar 2019, though we all expect Pininfarina’s potential customers will get a complete beforehand.
