Pininfarina previously teased the PF0 as a combination of high-end luxury, superlative performance, and cutting edge EV tech.

Pininfarina has been around for a long time - since 1930 in fact, and over the years its created a variety of amazing exterior designs for the likes of Ferrari, Maserati, and Alfa Romeo, among others. However, as recently as April of this year, the firm announced it was rebranding itself as a full-fledged standalone automaker, and the PF0 will be its first offering in that regard.

So far, hype has been building for the release of the new sports machine, with Pininfarina previously teasing the PF0 back in July as a combination of high-end luxury, superlative performance, and cutting edge EV tech.

With these latest teaser shots, we now get a look at the interior thanks to a slew of stylized, painting-style images. Overall, the interior appears elegant, with loads of stitched upholstery on the dash and doors. Digital screen readouts provide info for the driver, and there’s a push-button starter located lower on the dash. The steering wheel gets a geometric shape with a carbon rim and additional stitching on the hand bolsters, while a large center console runs down the car’s spine.

Pininfarina also included several exterior shots with the interiors, which come heavy on the shadow, but still show the car’s voluptuous lines, including the curvaceous fender lines and rounded cockpit.

The body panels will be made from carbon fiber, and draw inspiration from Pininfarina’s past creations, including the Cisitalia, Sintesi, and Modulo. No doubt, the PF0 will be quite the looker.

“Our objective with the exterior of PF0 is to design timeless beauty in every aspect, and the interior is equally important,” said Pininfarina’s Design Director, Luca Borgogno.

All told, it makes sense to bring the PF0 to Pebble Beach, considering the attendees expected to show.

“Numerous design icons from Pininfarina’s incredible history have won awards at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, so I am excited to present a future Pininfarina classic to prospective owners in close proximity to this famous event,” said Automobili Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschke.

In addition, the PF0 will also get tons of high-tech features under the skin, especially with regards to performance and speed.

In terms of acceleration, the car is expected to hit 62 mph in less than 2 seconds, while top speed will clock in at over 250 mph. Making that a possibility will be four electric motors, one per corner, all of which will produce 2,000 horsepower total. Range per charge will exceed 300 miles.

Each example will be built by hand in Cambiano, Italy. Production will be limited to just 150 units total. Pricing is rumored to slot in at $2.5 million a piece.

AUTOMOBILI PININFARINA PRESENTS THE FUTURE OF THE HYPERCAR IN PEBBLE BEACH

(Monterey, 16 August 2018): Ahead of its official unveiling at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2019, a full-scale design concept of the stunning Automobili Pininfarina PF0 luxury electric hypercar will be presented exclusively to prospective clients in advance of Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Michael Perschke, Automobili Pininfarina CEO, said: “Numerous design icons from Pininfarina’s incredible history have won awards at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, so I am excited to present a future Pininfarina classic to prospective owners in close proximity to this famous event.
“Our presence in Monterey is an inspiring chapter in the story of realising Battista Farina’s long-held dream: one day there will be beautiful cars solely branded Pininfarina. These special VIP previews mean that future PF0 owners, most of whom will undoubtedly own numerous modern and historic classics, have an opportunity right now to be part of the birth of the company and their hypercar.”
Automobili Pininfarina Design Director Luca Borgogno has devised a design brief to cover creation of the most beautiful, all-electric hypercar in the world, codenamed PF0. The design of the PF0 is being developed by the Pininfarina SpA Design Studio, and future owners will be delighted that PF0 will be hand-crafted in Cambiano, Italy by the Pininfarina SpA atelier in strictly-limited numbers from 2020.
Luca Borgogno said: “Our objective with the exterior of PF0 is to design timeless beauty in every aspect, and the interior is equally important. Pininfarina’s design values of elegance and simplicity present us with a fantastic opportunity to stand out from the styling of most current sports and hypercars.
“Our guests in Pebble Beach have huge affinity for Italian sports cars. I am certain they will value our commitment to ensure PF0 is designed and hand-crafted in Turin. It is the birthplace of some of the most revered sports and luxury cars ever created.”
PF0 is in the final stages of design and has been inspired by famous Pininfarina cars such as the Cisitalia, Modulo and Sintesi. Each featured classic Pininfarina design cues and the necessary blend of beauty and technological innovation in perfect combination. And each was ahead of its time when presented. Future PF0 owners –no more than 150 worldwide – are guaranteed the same approach and results, inside and out.
Cloaked in a visually stunning body created from carbon fibre, extreme levels of technology and functional design lie at the heart of the PF0, delivering a staggering performance for a road car: a stated ambition to accelerate to 62 mph in less than two seconds, break the 250 mph top speed barrier, and provide a potential zero-emissions range of over 300 miles.
Joining Automobili Pininfarina and guests in California to mark the occasion will be Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra & Mahindra, the visionary leader whose support of Pininfarina SpA has opened up the opportunity for the arrival of Pininfarina-branded luxury cars.
