More Power Than a Bugatti Chiron
The Pininfarina Battista was among the most highly anticipated reveals of the Geneva Motor Show, and now it’s finally here with 1,900 hp. The horsepower may be the thing that everyone is talking about, but the vehicle isn’t just a high-powered beast, it’s a legitimate design triumph, toon.
The car looks like what you’d expect a hypercar from Pininfarina to look like. It’s all sweeping lines that have been aerodynamically designed and beautifully crafted. The Battista may be a brute when it comes to power, but its styling is downright elegant. The teardrop style cockpit, long sloping roof, and rear with its floating taillights is gorgeous.
The interior is similarly beautiful with two large screens to either side of the steering wheel and an overall driver-centric cabin. Leather, aluminum and carbon fiber materials are used throughout the cabin.
The Battista features an all-electric powertrain. The 120 kWh battery pack comes from Rimac, and that powers the four electric motors that have a combined output of 1,900 hp and 1,696 lb-ft of torque. It can do a 0 to 60 mph sprint in under two seconds and make it to a top speed of 217 mph. The car is also capable of traveling 280 miles per charge.
The company will launch the car next year. It plans to make only 150 Battista electric hypercars worldwide. Between 25 and 40 dealers will get the car to sell to customers. Those dealers will be in major cities like New York, Hong Kong, and London. The price of the car has not yet been announced.
