Automobili Pininfarina has pulled the covers off of its first bespoke commission of the new Battista hypercar. Inspired by New York City, the battery-powered beast has exposed carbon fibre bodywork as part of its red, white and blue colour scheme. The blue aspect comes courtesy of an Iconica Blu thread, which is a world-first according to the carmaker.
Pininfarina says that every Battista hyper GT will be unique and individually tailored to the customer’s preference through its specially developed personalisation programme. Clients will be able to create their dream car from the comfort of a recently refurbished studio facility that runs alongside the production line in Cambiano, near Turin. Here they will be able to choose unique exterior paint colours and combinations as well as interior finishes and engravings. Furthermore, Pininfarina says this pioneering programme gives clients direct access to Battista designers, to ensure that no two models are the same.
As a reminder, the Pininfarina Battista features a fully-electric powertrain that produces 1 417 kW and 2 300 N.m and the vehicle is said to be capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in under two seconds. The 120 kWh battery pack offers a range of around 450 km between charges, according to Pininfarina. To keep weight to a minimum, the car features a carbon fibre monocoque, bonded carbon roof and rear carbon subframe.
Exclusivity is ensured too, with Pininfarina set to build just 150 examples of this beastly hypercar, all hand-crafted to the customer’s preferences.
“Our clients have the unique opportunity to join the Automobili Pininfarina family, immersing themselves in the design process with our talented craftspeople to ensure their vehicle authentically reflects their personality and tastes, created with a truly personal touch,” said Sara Campagnolo, head of colour and materials design at Automobili Pininfarina. “Clients have the opportunity to drive forward the development of sustainable luxury, whilst creating a unique collector’s piece.”
