Back at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Pininfarina had taken the wraps off the Battista in near-production form. This all-electric hypercar comes with oodles of performance and the beautiful Pininfarina design philosophy. Deliveries were slated to commence this year until COVID-19 postponed proceedings. Since then, the carmaker has continued the development of the hypercar. It has now completed its first high speed handling test at the 12.6km Nardò Technical Centre in Italy. 

The tests involved the carmaker fine tuning the hypercar’s various chassis settings and drive modes. The hypercar’s racing-inspired Brembo CCMR carbon-ceramic brakes, torque vectoring, aerodynamics as well as the double-wishbone suspension components, forged aluminium wheels and torsion bars were also tested. Speaking of drive modes, the Battista gets five: Calma, Pura, Energica, Furiosa and Carattere.

The main talking point of the Battista is, of course, its all-electric powertrain. Powered by four electric motors and juiced up by a 120 kWh battery, the hypercar boasts a combined total of 1900PS grunt and 2300Nm twist. Combined with all-wheel-drive, the Battista achieves a 0-100kmph sprint time in less than 2 seconds with a top speed of 350kmph. 

 

Performance aside, it gets a clean and elegant design with a bonkers aero kit that has become the norm for most hypercar manufacturers. The infotainment will also be feature loaded with connected tech and over-the-air updates (OTA). 

Only 150 units of the Pininfarina Battista will be hand made in Cambiano, Italy, with each unit costing a sky high USD 3.13 million. Deliveries of the hypercar will commence in 2021.
