The Pininfarina PF0 hypercar will be called the Battista

It was at the last Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance that Pininfarina, during a private event, unveiled the concept of its fully-electric hypercar, the PF0. The Italian company even gave some figures about its concept: 0-100 km/h in less than 2 seconds, 300 km/h in 12 seconds and a top speed of more than 400 km/h! To all this, we add a range of over 480 km.

Today, Automobili Pininfarina officially announced its model and unveiled its name, the Pininfarina Battista. Why this name? Because it’s the name of the founder of the Italian design firm, Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina.

Rimac C_Two: it has 1,915 horsepower and it’s electric

It will be under the supervision of his grandson, and president of the company, Paulo Pininfarina, that the Battista will be manufactured to 150 copies. In addition, according to the chairman, the Pininfarina Battista will be the fastest and most powerful car ever designed and produced in Italy.

With the help of Rimac, the Battista will be able to develop 1,900 hp and 1,700 lb-ft of torque, as well as the impressive numbers mentioned above. Indeed, Rimac signed a contract last September to provide equipment, software, and expertise for the batteries and the powertrain.

The Pininfarina Battista will retail between US$2 and $2.5 million and will be available by the end of 2020.

The limited-edition hypercar will be unveiled in March at the Geneva International Motor Show.
