Automobili Pininfarina Battista Makes Dynamic Debut in California

  • Talks new soundtrack and how the EV’s soundscape is formed


Automobili Pininfarina has brought the Battista electric sports car to California, and that means these. The first photos of the car on the road in its dynamic debut on the way to attending Monterey Car Week.

Pininfarina calls the Battista “the world’s first pure-electric hyper GT” though we’ll call it another massively impressive EV hypercar. With 1,900 hp, four motors, and astonishing projected performance, it certainly looks ready to deliver on that promise.

The first production-spec car is driving around California wearing its black exposed carbon bodywork and forged aluminum wheels. Look inside and there is sustainable black leather and Iconica Blu Alcantara, along with a Jewellery Pack trim.

Now that it’s driving around, it’s also the first time clients have been able to hear the car. Pininfarina says the sound has been carefully tuned to give the car an emotional response. It’s based around a core frequency of 54 Hz. We’re not audio engineers, but Pininfarina says that it is “an organic frequency that is a multiple of 432 Hz – known as ‘Verdi’s A,’ conceived by famous Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi.”

Pininfarina calls the frequency “mathematically consistent with the universe,” and says that “music tuned to 432 Hz is said to be a pure sound – complementing the Battista’s pure design – while providing greater clarity, and is easier on the ears.” We’ll have to wait and hear on this one.

The Automobili Pininfarina Battista takes its name from Battista “Pinin” Farina, the founder of the coachworks.
