Automobili Pininfarina Battista Hyper GT

Automobili Pininfarina’s all-electric Battista hyper GT acetates faster than a Formula 1 race car. This EV hypercar blasts from 0-60 mph in just 1.79 seconds and from 0-100 km/h in just 1.86 seconds. How do they achieve this? The 120 kWh battery powers one electric motor at each wheel which combine to generate 1,900 hp and 1,725 lb-ft of torque. Top speed is 350 km/h or 217 mph.

“I am proud that our new electric hyper GT delivers on the promises we made when we set out or development plan,” said Paolo Dellacha, Automobili Pininfarina Chief Product and Engineering Officer said. “In Battista, we have achieved performance beyond our original, extreme targets. Perfectly optimized weight distribution and low centre of gravity are at the heart of this result. The combination of bespoke chassis and suspension tuning, tires proven over many thousands of test miles and four-motor torque vectoring delivering unprecedented power enables Battista to be the fastest accelerating road-legal car in the world.

“Battista’s incredible technical package includes a carbon ceramic brake system, helping the Italian hyper GT become the fastest braking electric car in the world. Our discerning clients here in the UAE have been overwhelmed by the Battista driving experience, which is as breathtaking as its award-winning design.”

Automobili Pininfarina are building just 150 of these ultra-exotic EV’s at the Battista Atelier in Cambiano, Italy. The price per car is 2.2 million Euro or approximately $3 million CAD. Production began earlier this year with deliveries commencing this month.
