Pininfarina Bringing First Production Battista to Monterey

Electric hypercar makes debut at Pebble Beach

  • Event will also debut new Anniversario spec


Pininfarina is bringing the first production version of its Battista hypercar to Monterey Car Week. The exposed carbon car with blue interior highlights will make its debut on the 12th and is one of the first chances for customers of the car to check out what they’re writing the big cheque for.

The Pininfarina Battista is an electric hyper GT, which the company says is quicker than a current F1 car to reach 100 km/h, and will make 1,900 hp. The 120 kWh battery powers an electric motor in each wheel and a 500 km WLTP range is expected.

Pininfarina will build no more than 150 of the carbon fibre specials at the company’s factory in Italy.

To celebrate the Battista at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, an entire fleet of Pininfarina designs will be on hand. Celebrating the company’s more than 90 years of designing some of the best-looking cars on the road. Three classes of judging just for Pininfarina designswill be held, judged by company chief design officer Luca Borgogno and a panel of honorary judges.

On display, the first production-spec car will have black exposed carbon bodywork with gloss black wheels. the interior features sustainable black leather with Iconica Blu contrast stitching and quilted Iconica Blue Alcantara seats. Monterey Car Week will also debut a new Battista Anniversario spec, limited to just five globally and finished in a special livery with bi-colour tinted Furiosa Pack body kit.
