Pininfarina Battista Finishes Round of High Speed Testing

Electric hyper grand-tourer hits the track for development work

  • Battista a 1,900 hp electric hyper GT

  • High speed testing on 12.6 km Nardo circle track


Automobili Pininfarina has just finished the first round of testing of their 1,874 hp Battista hypercar. The car, the most powerful Italian sports car ever, underwent that testing on the 12.6km high banks of the Nardo Technical Center and its 6.2 km handling circuit.

“This test is an exciting moment for our clients and the team at Automobili Pininfarina as we complete another phase In the development of the most powerful Italian sports car ever made,” said Chief Product and Engineering Officer Paolo Dellachà.

The all-electric hypercar uses four motors, one at each wheel, to provide that massive power figure along with 1,696 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain arrangement lets the car’s computers distribute power from the 120 kWh battery to each individual wheel in the way that will optimise traction and change the experience to suit the driver.

Instead of a deeply disguised mule, the Automobili Pininfarina Battista is showing off its carbon fibre bodywork in nearly bare form. It even has a full interior to help test drivers check out those components. Or at least to give them the proper hyper GT feel and stay comfortable while they run through the battery pack.

Other tuning work includes the development of the Brembo CCMR carbon-ceramic brakes, working to hone their operation with the regenerative braking and high-speed aerodynamic brake. The torque vectoring system is also being fully dialled in to shift power and to switch to regeneration seamlessly, while the more than 1,000 hours of virtual chassis testing must be put to the test in the real world.

Pininfarina says the 2021 Battista will hit 100 km/h from a stop in under two seconds and get to 300 km/h in under 12 seconds while on the way to a top speed of 350 km/h. It will also offer GT-levels of luxury and over the air updates with global roaming connectivity. Deliveries are expected to start next year.
