Pininfarina Battista Final Spec To Reveal In The Coming Week
More than two years after its Geneva debut, the Pininfarina Battista is set to go into production. The hypercar will be unveiled in its ultimate configuration at Pebble Beach next week.
The Battista will make its spectacular debut on local roads as part of Automobili Pininfarina’s participation in the prestigious Monterey Car Week festival in the United States. For the first time, the ultra-exclusive Battista Anniversario will be seen in public.
The first production-ready Battista will be on display with exposed carbon fiber body parts, black wheels, upholstery, and interior trim pieces.
To commemorate Pininfarina’s 90th anniversary, the Anniversario features a special aero-focused ‘Furiosa’ design package and a two-tone paint scheme. Only five will be built, each with the same 1,900 horsepower and 2,300 Nm quad-motor drivetrain as the ordinary car.
“We are pleased to exhibit the beautiful and sustainable future of luxury to our clients while honoring more than 90 years of Pininfarina design heritage during Monterey Car Week,” said Per Svantesson, CEO of Automobili Pininfarina. We are excited for our clients in the United States to experience Battista’s immense dynamic performance and customized luxury for the first time.”
The Pininfarina Battista is one of a slew of high-capacity electric hypercars set to hit the market in the coming months. Rimac’s Nevera, which shares parts of its motor with the Battista, was unveiled in full earlier this year, and the Lotus Evija, a similarly powerful car, will be completed by the end of 2021.
The Pininfarina Battista is primarily targeted towards left-hand drive markets, with a total production run of 150 cars split evenly between the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world. The electric vehicle is planned to hit the market in early 2022, with a starting price of GBP 1.7 million (about Rs 17.5 crore).
Pininfarina is also working on a high-performance electric SUV that will be released next year. This vehicle will be available in both left- and right-hand drive options, and as a result, it may find its way to India, where Automobili Pininfarina’s parent company Mahindra is based. By 2025, the electric vehicle manufacturer expects to have a family of five cars.
