• 2021 Pininfarina Battista Anniversario

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.

What changes for the Battista Anniversario?

It’s limited to just 5 examples, all custom built in Cambian, Turin

For starters, it celebrates 90 years since Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina opened the Pininfarina house for business. Pininfarina will craft the Battista Anniversario at its workshop in Cambiano, Turin. Just five units will be made, each priced at €2.6 million ($2.89 million, roughly).

Each of the five Anniversarios receives a combo of three signature colors - Bianco Sestriere, Grigio Antonelliano, and Iconica Blu. Or, in English, white, gray, and blue. Painting the car takes “several weeks” according to Pininfarina, because the entire process is done by hand.

Every Battista Anniversario sports the Furiosa package, which can now be ordered for any Battista. The bundle adds the following:

  • a redesigned, exposed carbon fiber front splitter
  • side blades
  • rear diffuser
  • rear wing
  • rear aero fins

Pininfarina says that these add-ons don’t only make the Anniversario look better, but also enhance its downforce and high-speed stability. What’s more, the Anniversario is 10 kilos (22 pounds) lighter than your “regular” Battista thanks to a set of new set of forged aluminum wheels. Customer can go further and specify the Impulso wheels.

Are there any changes inside the Pininfarina Battista Anniversario?

Yes, there are, but don’t expect a bucketload of them. Subtlety is the way to go here. The Battista Anniversario has new seats that mix “sustainably crafted” black leather and black Alcantara, Anniversario-lettered door plaques, and Pininfarina 90 logos to set it apart from the lesser Battista. Other than that, the Battista Anniversario comes fitted with the same screens on either side of the flat-bottom steering wheel and, overall, a very driver-centric cockpit.

So nothing changes in terms of powertrain for the Battista Anniversario, then?

Its four electric motors deliver 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 lb-ft

That’s right. The Anniversario sits on the same mechanical underpinnings as the Battista. In other words, it is built around a carbon fibre monocoque chassis designed to host four electric motors that make 1,900 horsepower and 2,300 Newton-meters of torque (that’s around 1,696 pound-feet) sent to all four wheels via a smart torque vectoring system.

As a result, the Battista Pininfarina remains quicker than a Formula 1 car in the 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint as it’s able to clear it in under two seconds. 0-300 km/h (186 mph) comes in less than 12 seconds, with top speed being rated at 350 km/h (217 mph).

Each will be priced at roughly $2.89 million

The e-motors are fed by a 120-kWh battery pack mounted down low in the T-shaped carbon frame, which also allows for a max range of 500 km (310 miles). Provided you don’t sink the accelerator into the floor, of course.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
