This ground breaking hypercar is the namesake of Battista “Pinin” Farina, founder of Carrozzeria Pinin Farina, which he started in 1930, the beginning of a legacy. While its moniker is a nod to the past this driving devil is designed for the future. The exciting partnerships that Pininfarina has announced in the design of the Battista, with Karma Automotive for the environmental sustainability in luxury design, and Way Ray the Swiss based deep tech company that develops built-in holographic augmented reality displays for cars, proves that their eyes are firmly set on tomorrow.
As the Battista’s wind tunnel and simulation development program picks up speed in Italy under the guidance of Development Driver Nick Heidfeld, Automobili Pininfarina has confirmed that the world’s first pure-electric luxury hypercar will make its Monterey Car Week public debut at The Quail on 16 August 2019.
” This is literally a dream come true. My grandfather always had a vision that one day there would be a stand-alone range of Pininfarina-branded cars. This hypercar will boast world-beating performance, technological innovation and of course elegant styling. For me, we simply had to call it Battista. His dream becomes reality today as we link our glorious past with the future of motoring.”
– Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman
As part of a series of exclusive presentations at the House of Automobili Pininfarina near the Pebble Beach golf club during Monterey Car Week, guests of the Italian brand will hear from Design Director Luca Borgogno as he shares his vision for the brand’s future design philosophy, entitled ‘PURA’. Borgogno will be joined by Heidfeld and Rene Wollmann, Director Sports Cars who will share news highlights from the Battista’s technical development programme.
Borgogno and his team will also present an enhanced version of the Battista pure-electric hypercar featuring a refined front design to current and prospective clients, who are being personally invited to the company’s private residence in Monterey.
“We enjoyed a successful first appearance at Pebble Beach last year with the Battista prototype, but for 2019 our dreams become reality.
This limited-edition masterpiece is the world’s first pure-electric luxury hypercar and we look forward to presenting it in a lightly evolved form to our clients. We have great technical insights to share and I am certain our guests will be excited to see what is coming next from our great team of designers.” – Michael Perschke, Automobili Pininfarina CEO
