Let’s talk performance figures. This upcoming supercar has almost 1,900 horsepower, 2,300 Nm of torque, goes from 0 to 100km/h in 2 seconds, and hits a top speed of 350km/h. Sounds like the perfect recipe for any supercar to have. However, this car isn’t built by Ferrari, Lamborghini or any big name manufacturer for that matter. In fact, it doesn’t even have any turbochargers, pistons, or camshafts for that matter as it is an electric vehicle.
Welcome, the all-electric Pininfarina Battista.
While the Pininfarina name is known for designing some of the most beautiful cars the world has ever seen such as the Ferrari F40 and the Enzo Ferrari, the Italian design firm has recently dwelled into building their own automobiles. The first of which is the all-electric Battista seen here. The pure electric supercar recently made its debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and shows that an electric future does not need to be boring.
Like most other Pininfarina designed vehicles, the Battista does not disappoint when it comes to styling. It features the same shape as most mid-engine Italian supercars do. Curiously, it does slightly resemble the out-going Ferrari 488 GTB, especially looking at it from the front three-quarters. The most striking feature of the Battista, however, would be at the rear, with its unique, floating rear wing design.
Inside, the Battista features three digital screens that are positioned towards the driver. Vital information such as speed and battery level are located on the center screen while the two other displays show vehicle instrumentation and navigation.
Powering the Battista are two electric motors which are mounted on each axle, giving the electric vehicle torque vectoring capability and all-wheel drive. The two motors produce a combined output of 1,874 horsepower and 2,300 Nm of torque. As mentioned above, top speed is at a blistering 350 km/h. A 120 kWh battery allows it to have an estimated 450km range.
Pricing of the Battista has not yet been officially announced, however, those interested may do so at Pininfarina's booth at Geneva. Only 150 units are intended to be built and sold globally. Production is set to begin in 2020.
