The car that should relaunch Pininfarina after seven years since it last made a car

Pininfarina, the company best well known for its association with Ferrari, wants to break free from under the shade of the Prancing Horse and make a name for itself as the builder of the fastest car to come out of Italy. The name of this car? Battista, like the name of the company’s founder. The numbers that should firmly plant this car on the map? 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 pound-feet, a 0 to 62 mph sprint in less than two seconds, and a top speed of about 250 mph. All done by an EV powertrain that’s capable of running over 300 miles between charges.

Reading those numbers it’s easy to dismiss the Pininfarina Battista as just another ludicrous car that will never actually become reality. Something like the Devel Sixteen, the Arabian hypercar that packs a V-16 engine that’s capable of 5,000 horsepower. That one was supposedly slated to start final testing this month. Or the equally insane Vector WX-8, Jerry Wiegert’s project that should’ve brought his once proud company back from the dead. He said 12 years ago that a 10-liter, twin-turbocharged, V-8 will power the car and that it will crank out 1,850 horsepower. More recently, Wiegert sold his two WX-3 prototypes to fund the project.

But the Battista is a more serious offering than both those elusive creations. First off, Pininfarina was bought by Mahindra four years ago for $190.6 million and, as we know, Mahindra has the financial power to throw cash at a project like this if so desires. With Pininfarina aiming to build just 150 of these, 50 dedicated to each of its three markets: Europe, America, and the Middle-East, we can expect people to actually come forth with pre-orders once it gets revealed at Geneva in a couple of weeks.

The Pininfarina Battista Is Now Officially Gorgeous

A Battista spec’d specifically for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event in Italy won the coveted ‘Design Award’

The Pininfarina Battista needs no introduction. It officially made its debut at the Monterey Car Week a couple of months back with a price tag of $2.2 million. The photos of it on the winding roads of California right before the said event gave us an idea of how gorgeous this EV is. Now, it has officially received the award. The automaker announced that the Battista won the coveted Design Award at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Lake Como, Italy. Well, we couldn’t agree more.

Pininfarina Battista Hits The Roads In California

A nice ride before it arrived at the Monterey Car Week

Pininfarina revealed the first production-ready Battista at the 2021 Monterey Car Week, but it seems the company couldn’t wait to let it soak in some of the sun’s vitamin-filled rays. The Battista was put through the paces – legally – on California roads. And it somehow made it look like those winding mountain roads were built for the Battista and not the other way around.

The car presented in Monterey is finished in a distinctive black exposed signature carbon fiber that is visually enhanced by the black gloss precision polished Impulso wheels. On the inside, you’ll see black sustainable luxury leather with Iconica Blue contrast stitching and quilted Pilota seats wrapped in blue Alcantara. Under the body lies a 120 kWh battery and four electric motors. Those motors are said to be good for 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 pound-feet of torque – enough for a 62-mph sprint in 1.9 seconds and a top speed of 260 mph. It’s not for everyone, though, as Pininfarina is only building 150 examples and each one comes at a minimum cost of $2.5 million.

The Pininfarina Battista is impressively fast with Nick Heidfeld behind the wheel

Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and originally scheduled to go into production in 2020, the Pininfarina Battista has yet to hit public roads, but the all-electric supercar is ready to meet its first customers. Pininfarina latest testing session took place on Italy’s Nardo track, where former F1 and Formula E racer Nick Heidfeld put the Battista through its paces over a few fast laps.

Pininfarina Is Interested in Speed and Comfort, Not Beating Bugatti’s Lap Times

The Pininfarina Battista will be incredibly fast, but also as comfortable as a grand tourer

Electric cars are no longer just about commuting without burning oil and emitting CO2. Technology has advanced so much in recent years that electric cars can now be as quick or even quicker that gasoline-powered supercars. We already have the Lotus Evija and NIO EP9 to look at for proper examples, but more high-tech and high-powered EVs are in the making.

One of them comes from Pininfarina. It’s called the Battista, we’ve seen it in prototype form in 2019, and the Italian firm is currently testing it at the Nardo track. The loop is mostly famous for top speed testing, particularly by Bugatti, but Pininfarina says they’re not looking to set new records.

Remember 2019’s Pininfarina Battista? This is its more athletic alter ego

Pininfarina never misses an opportunity to showcase something special at the Geneva Motor Show. It helps that its stand is located right as you come up the stairs from the main hallway, so you can’t really miss its stunning concepts.

Although it was forced to reveal the Battista Anniversario on the world wide web this year, Pininfarina didn’t forget how to make a splash, albeit on our screens and not in the metal.

Profiling an all-electric superstar

I don’t know if you guys have been paying attention, but the top shelf of the supercar world is simply insane right now. Between four-figure output numbers, seven-figure price tags, and designs pulled from the brains of aerospace engineers, these machines bring enough hype to wake the dead. Such is the case with the 2020 Pininfarina PF0 Battista, an all-electric Italian stallion capable of hitting 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds and topping out at 250 mph. But while specs like these make for great headlines, there’s a whole lot more to unwrap here. As such, Donut Media made this informative sub-9-minute video.

The 2020 Pininfarina Battista Pays Special Tribute to the Geneva Motor Show With a Special Badge Inside the Headlight

It’s a nice nod to the show that has hosted some of the finest cars to have come out of the Italian company

The Pininfarina Battista didn’t just steal the show at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show; it claimed it like a conqueror staking claim a new and uninhabited land. The 1,900-horsepower electric hypercar not only promises to be the fastest and most powerful car to come out of Italy, but it’s probably there already. The Battista is swimming in so many superlatives it’s hard to imagine another début in 2019 that can upstage the sheer spectacle it provided in Geneva last week. The Battista also happens to feature a number of easter eggs, none more eye-catching than the “2019 Geneva” badge that’s sitting inside its headlights. The badge could mean different things to different people, but for the most part, it’s a nod to the Geneva Motor Show, the event that has hosted some of the most incredible cars penned and developed by the legendary Italian company. Given the shared history between the company and the show, there was no other place in the world to début the Battista except the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

The hypercar we all know as the PF0 gets named after the man who started Pininfarina

The Pininfarina PF0 is no more. Long live the Pininfarina Battista! That’s the official name Pininfarina’s first-ever production car is taking, and it’s named after the man who started Carrozzeria Pininfarina in the first place, Battista Farina. The Italian automaker announced the car’s official name to go with the promise that the Battista will be the “fastest and most powerful car” ever to come out of Italy. Pininfarina plans to build 150 units of the Battista, allocated evenly — 50 units per region — among the U.S., Europe, and Asian markets. The hypercar is scheduled to make its debut at 2019 Geneva Motor Show before production starts sometime in 2020.

Pininfarina’s PF0 Electric Hypercar Wants To Redefine The Segment

Only 150 units of the PF0 will be made

Pininfarina has been around for 90 years, and in all that time, it has never built its own car. It’s built concepts, and it’s collaborated with other automakers. But a car that’s 100 percent Pininfarina? That’s never happened. That, of course, is about to change next year. Pininfarina will launch its first-ever production vehicle, and as far as firsts go, it’s a doozy. It’s called the Pininfarina PF0, and it’s a 1,900-horsepower electric hypercar that’s looking to snatch your soul.
