All hail the Pininfarina Battista hypercar
- The Pininfarina Battista is a newly launched all-electric hypercar that can go from 0 to 100kph in two seconds
- It is the first hypercar to be released under the new banner of Italian automaker, Automobili Pininfarina
- Only 150 will be made worldwide, with 50 available in the Middle East
Two seconds. That is the amount of time that the Pininfarina Battista takes to get to 100kph from a standing start. Two seconds.
For reference sake, that makes this new all-electric hypercar’s acceleration quicker than a Formula One car, and can hit 349kph (its top speed) quicker than an F-16 fighter jet. It’s quick, is what we’re trying to say.
Raw pace aside, pretty much everything about this car makes a statement. The Battista is the first street-legal release from the Italian automakers Automobili Pininfarina—the recently established motoring arm of the legendary Pininfarina design company known for helping design some of the most iconic cars in history—and showcases its design nous combined with a fully-electric, zero-emissions engine capable of delivering 1,900hp.
The hand-built hyper GT is a clear statement that electric cars can be beautiful, desirable and extremely powerful—the classic supercar ingredients.
Unveiled in Dubai last month, thanks to specialist luxury car retailers Adamas Motors, the company only plans to build 150 pieces worldwide, with 50 available in the Middle East for an approximate asking price of a cool AED7.5 million per car, due to the bespoke nature of its order.
Not only is the Battista a masterpiece of car design, but a single-charge of its engine can deliver a range of 500km—Dubai to Abu Dhabi and back twice a day—or a sprint to 100kph in less than two seconds. The Battista represents a new reality for electric car desirability and a new poster car
for the EV generation.
