Pininfarina Battista hypercar

Battista is the most powerful car ever designed and built in Italy and it delivers a level of performance that is unachievable today in any road-legal sports car featuring internal combustion engine technology. Faster than a current Formula 1 race car in its 0 -100 km/h sub-two second sprint, and with 1,900 hp and 2,340 Nm torque on tap, the Battista combines extreme engineering and technology in a zero emissions package. Battista’s 120 kWh battery provides power to four electric motors – one at each wheel – with a combined WLTP range of up to 476 km (U.S. combined EPA: 300 miles) on a single charge. No more than 150 examples of Battista will be individually hand-crafted at the atelier in Cambiano, Italy.

The Automobili Pininfarina Battista is the world’s first pure-electric hyper GT – a pioneering proposition for clients and collectors who demand the highest level of luxury, performance and exhilaration. No more than 150 examples of the exclusive model will be created by the artisans at Automobili Pininfarina’s Cambiano Atelier, in Italy, bringing new levels of hand-finished personalisation and tailoring to clients in search of sustainable luxury and performance.

With a peerless history of creating the world’s most beautiful automobiles, Pininfarina’s unique design DNA makes Battista a car like no other, representing a modern interpretation of iconic Italian design, luxury and sophistication. Conceived at Automobili Pininfarina’s hub in Cambiano, the Battista has been created by a team of passionate individuals, with emotion and a glorious heritage at its core.

The Battista perfectly balances the technological innovations of today with a nod to Pininfarina’s elegant past. It is defined by just two lines – referencing typical Pininfarina designs – with its curvaceous and sculptural carbon body and sweeping glass. The Automobili Pininfarina PURA design philosophy is complemented by technical details that have been beautifully incorporated into the Battista’s overall identity, perfectly marrying timeless design for a new era of electric mobility.

Flowing lines and simple, exquisite detailing define the Battista’s exterior, with one line encircling the car, while another connects the pillar to the shape of the sculptural doors that sweep back to the carbon fibre bridge at the rear. A subtle accent line around the car enhances the iconic Pininfarina teardrop cabin, forming an emotive, perfectly balanced overall design. The Battista’s powertrain and technology come to life with the Signature E-Heart at the centre of the rear section, with the latest LED lighting technology giving the Battista an unmistakable visual signature at night.

The Battista Anniversario takes exclusivity to the next level. Fitted with the Furiosa Carbon Accent Pack, the Anniversario features a bespoke heritage-inspired livery, including a unique combination of Bianco Sestriere, Grigio Antonelliano and signature Iconica Blu, with carbon detailing finished with the exclusive Iconica Blu thread, complemented by white pinstripe around the vehicle. Signature Pininfarina logos, bespoke engraving and a black interior theme with black and Iconica Blu stitching complete the look.

Battista Anniversario is also equipped with the ‘Furiosa’ package, comprising a revised carbon fibre front splitter, side blades and rear diffuser. Exclusively on the Anniversario, these parts are finished in a two-tone combination of Exposed Signature Carbon tinted in Iconica Blu with pin stripes in Bianco Sestriere. Besides the exclusive livery, a bespoke rear wing, rear aero fins and other bespoke details are unique to the Battista Anniversario. The aerodynamic enhancements deliver increased downforce and greater stability at higher cornering speeds and a more dynamic balance to the car.

The Anniversario’s handling dynamism is further sharpened by a reduction in unsprung weight of almost 10 kg, thanks to a new wheel design which features centre-lock forged aluminium wheels. The rear wheels grow from 20-inch to 21-inch. Together with the performance-oriented tyres, the new rims enable the car to achieve its top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). The optional ‘Impulso’ wheels complement the options programme available for Battista.

On Anniversario, the wheels are finished in satin dark grey with the centre-lock rings and outer edges of the ‘f’ badge anodized in Iconica Blu. The Brembo brake callipers are finished in Iconica Blu and the writing on the tyre sidewalls is picked out in white.

The interior is trimmed in black sustainable luxury leather and black Alcantara with stitching in black and Iconica Blu. The brushed aluminium detailing is anodized in Iconica Blu, while the steering wheel is clad in black sustainable luxury leather and Exposed Signature Carbon. As another bespoke element on Anniversario, the cupholder retainer is finished in brushed aluminium anodized in Iconica Blu.

The seats feature rear backrests, seat shoulder inserts and inlays finished in Exposed Signature Carbon tinted in Iconica Blu. Exclusive to Anniversario is the combination of quilting in Iconica Blu and layered two-tone perforation on black Alcantara over Iconica Blu fabric.

Further bespoke Anniversario details in and around the car include an ‘Anniversario’ headlight engraving, ‘Anniversario’ script on the side wings, signature ‘Pininfarina 90’ logos, black anodized door plaques with an homage to the founding of Carrozzeria Pinin Farina in 1930 and a specially engraved chassis plate between the seats.

Limited to just five models, the Anniversario guarantees to be an ultra-exclusive embodiment of the Battista – a piece of exquisite automotive art that respects the brand’s history while looking to the future. All five versions have been reserved by discerning clients following its successful debut at Monterey Car Week in the US in 2021.

The second ‘design edition’ to be introduced, following the Anniversario, the Edizione Nino Farina is inspired by Automobili Pininfarina’s family legacy and design heritage. Also limited to five units, the Edizione Nino Farina celebrates the illustrious racing career and fearless spirit of motorsport legend and the first ever F1 World Champion Nino Farina – the nephew of design icon and company founder Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina.

Like the Battista Anniversario, the Edizione Nino Farina features a curated specification. The unmistakable exterior design features Rosso Nino paint with contrasting Bianco Sestriere and Iconica Blu finishes, with new Glorioso Gold wheels and an eye-catching ‘01’ side graphic. The exterior is complemented by the Furiosa Pack, comprising a revised carbon fibre front splitter, side blades and rear diffuser, with a Bianco Sestriere pinstripe, and the Carbon Accent Pack finished in Black Exposed Signature Carbon.

Further exterior adornments include all Exterior Jewellery finished in brushed aluminium, anodised in black, with matching centre lock rings and black brake calipers. Finally, subtle detailing references Nino Farina, with a ‘Nino Farina’ engraving on the headlight unit, also in brushed aluminium anodised in black, while thr driver’s side carbon wing features a ‘Nino Farina’ graphic.

The inside is bespoke, with a driver’s seat finished in Black Sustainable Leather, with a contrasting passenger seat finished in Beige Leather, both with Alcantara elements. The bespoke headrest features an embroidered laurel wreath and ‘01’ graphic in gold on the driver’s side, while the passenger headrest features the Pininfarina logo in red. Rosso Nino features on the backs of both seats, matching the exterior. Iconica Blu seatbelts reference the exterior detailing, with bespoke duotone contrast stitch in beige and red on the centre tunnel, dashboard and seats. Dark detailing can also be found on the interior, with the Interior Jewellery finished in brushed aluminium, anodised in black. Exquisite detailing differentiates each Edizione Nino Farina, with a unique aluminium door plate that celebrates one of five outstanding landmarks in Nino’s career.

The Battista Edizione Nino Farina made its world dynamic debut at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it was driven by racing legend and former Goodwood hillclimb champion Nick Heidfeld.

The Battista’s cabin seamlessly blends emotive design and advanced technology with the finest  materials for a luxurious and cossetting interior that creates the perfect GT environment. The driver-centric layout makes it easy to access any data required, using a trio of screens, with the most important information gathered on a central screen directly ahead of the driver. A supplementary left-hand touchscreen controls the vehicle dynamics and performance, while a corresponding right-hand  touchscreen operates the multimedia entertainment and navigation systems.

The cosseting interior envelopes the driver and passenger with two seating options – GT or Pilota – andsustainable leather and Alcantara upholstery complemented by a variety of stitching options, a near-endless choice of colour combinations and the exquisitely detailed Interior Jewellery Pack option and interior aluminium finishes.

The unrivalled scope for personalisation available through the Automobili Pininfarina tailoring service provides 128 million interior combinations alone, as clients are invited to work with the designer team to make their dream car a reality. The luxurious details and inviting interior combine with thoughtful detailing to ensure its GT credentials remain, including excellent visibility and a digital rear-view mirror for supreme driver confidence in all environments.

Automobili Pininfarina’s bespoke personalisation programme is bolstered by its unique and discerning approach to client relations, facilitated by a network of passionate and carefully chosen retail partners around the world, representing Automobili Pininfarina across the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

Once a client takes delivery of their bespoke Battista, retail partners also benefit from the back-up of Automobili Pininfarina’s ‘flying doctor’, a dedicated expert on all things Battista who is on hand to provide support to retail partners and clients. He can fly anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice for one-to-one support that cannot be administered either using Over-The-Air software updates or via a visit to a retail partner.

With these in place as regional points of contact, clients are also able to access the dedicated Cambiano facility in Piemonte, Italy – the home of Pininfarina – where each Battista is painstakingly hand-crafted over the course of several weeks.

Each client is invited to visualise and specify their dream Battista to their perfect specification with the help and input from the design team, in the beautiful surroundings of historic Pininfarina designs in Cambiano, Italy. The neighbouring Pininfarina Collection showcases some of the most iconic designs from the company’s long history including automotive icons such as the 1947 Cisitalia 202 and Giulietta Spider.

The Cambiano Atelier facility offers clients a truly bespoke induction into the Automobili Pininfarina family, located in the Piemonte region Pininfarina has called home for nine decades. The dedicated space is where a carefully curated family of craftspeople construct every Battista with unrivalled attention to detail and passion.

Beginning with the arrival of the rolling chassis, the exhaustive assembly process takes a minimum of 10 weeks and includes a meticulous paintwork process where the talented artisans work their magic. Bespoke lifts and rigs are used to construct individual elements of Battista, ensuring every part of the process meets the highest quality standards. This includes the fitment of the doors, which are a structurally element of the Battista, where it takes the experts at Cambiano two days to achieve the required level of accuracy and precision.

As well as housing Battista production, Cambiano is also home to the creative process that will define every Battista. Imaginative and creative minds come together here to deliver the bespoke tailoring service that is available to every client. This passion will be carried forward in Automobili Pininfarina’s all-electric future portfolio, seamlessly blending exquisite design with high performance and modern, sustainable luxury

With its potent electrified powertrain, the Battista is an entirely new proposition – the world’s first pure-electric hyper GT. Its powertrain utilises a high-capacity 120 kWh lithium-ion battery contained within a strong but lightweight carbon fibre housing.

Four independent high-performance electric motors – one driving each wheel – combine with Full Torque Vectoring, Electronic Stability Control and a software differential that allows drivers to tailor the power delivery and handling responses like never before, while its T-shaped liquid-cooled battery pack is mounted centrally behind the seats to ensure a low centre of gravity.

The pure-electric Battista’s unique launch control technology contributes to Formula 1 car-beating acceleration, with 0-60mph achieved in 1.79s, 0-100km/h completed in 1.86s, 0-120mph executed in 4.49s and 0-200 km/h obliterated in just 4.75 seconds. A car as fast as Battista demands strong stopping power and official tests confirm Battista is one of the fastest braking EVs in the world, completing 100-0 km/h in just 31 metres.

Battista performance data highlights:

  • 1,900 hp (1,400 kW)
  • 2,340 Nm of torque
  • 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 1.86 seconds and 350 km/h (217 mph) top speed
  • Up to 476 km driving range (296 miles, WLTP combined), US EPA: 300 miles

The Battista combines hypercar performance with the cruising range and luxurious cabin of a traditional GT, with all-wheel drive and a choice of five driving modes. Battista is the most powerful and user-friendly road-legal Italian sports car ever produced.

The Battista’s powerful battery and advanced four-motor drivetrain have allowed Automobili Pininfarina engineers to deliver a wide range of driving characteristics, so the level of personalisation available extends to the driving experience.

Drivers can choose from driving five modes using a tactile milled rotary controller on the dashboard: Calma (Calm), Pura (Pure), Energica (Energetic), Furiosa (Furious), Carattere (Character). In this way the Battista can be tuned to reflect the mood of the driver and the precise nature of the environment.

The four independent high-performance electric motors individually distribute the Battista’s power to each wheel through advanced torque vectoring technology, ensuring infinitely variable dynamics for the most engaging drive in all situations, delivering drivability in all situations, befitting of its place as the ultimate hyper GT.

To hone the driving experience, the Battista’s team of advanced engineers trialled numerous setups via simulators to calibrate the system’s software before the Battista began on-road and on-track testing.

The Battista has undergone a comprehensive testing programme, with former F1 and Formula E driver Nick Heidfeld playing an active role in its dynamic development. He has been at the wheel of the Battista throughout this process, bringing a wealth of knowledge to the hyper GT’s testing, sharing his motorsport experience and knowledge with the engineering team to get the very best out of the Battista’s advanced powertrain and carbon fibre monocoque chassis.

Battista is the first electric hyper GT to feature advanced racing-inspired Brembo CCMR carbon-ceramic brake technology and clients will be able to choose between 20-inch forged aluminium front and rear ‘Prezioso’ wheels or 20-inch front and 21-inch rear forged aluminium ‘Impulso’ wheels. The latter provide a saving of 8.9 kilograms in unsprung mass across all wheels. There is also a corresponding choice of high-performance tyres, with both Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R or Michelin Pilot Sport 4S available to order

The Battista promises to be the world’s most connected hyper GT with an online infotainment system featuring an extensive portfolio of digital services. A partnership with Deutsche Telekom offers clients the opportunity to benefit from online services in more than 50 countries worldwide using an embedded e-SIM and every Battista benefits from Over-The-Air software updates.

In total, 26 electronic modules can be updated while the car is parked or on the move using Wi-Fi or the embedded e-SIM. The system also includes Smart Diagnostics technology to constantly monitor the vehicle and diagnose potential faults before they arise, while a bespoke 1300 W Naim Audio sound system has been exclusively developed for the Battista featuring 10 elegantly integrated speakers and a Dual Voice Coil Subwoofer between the seats for auditorium-like sound quality. The digital experience is delivered via three screens, all oriented towards the driver. The logically arranged touchscreens sit either side of the steering wheel, with a third slim screen directly in front of the driver for immediate access to key vehicle telemetry.

A smartphone app keeps clients connected from the palm of their hand, offering a range of remote services to locate the Battista, check upon charging status and view key vehicle telemetry data. The 360-degree digital experience facilitated by the in-car systems and the connected technology outside the vehicle ensures the Battista is future-proof, consistently running on the latest systems that are delivered directly to the vehicle.

Battista comes with five years of complimentary public charging via ChargePoint, all accessible through an advanced keyfob or smartphone app. ChargePoint’s network provides approximately 115,000 places to charge across North America and Europe as well as more than 133,000 charging spots through roaming integrations with other charging network providers.

The Battista is a true pure-electric hyper GT, with a signature sound, SUONO PURO, designed to complement its beautiful design and advanced powertrain. From the outside, this distinctive soundscape amplifies its visual presence, providing a genuine sense of occasion as it reverberates with an unmistakable bassy quality than ensures you hear an approaching Battista before you see it.

Taking the controls promises to be a unique experience and the pure-electric hyper GT has an interior soundscape that reflects this. By layering specific frequencies over the top of the authentic sounds of its advanced 1,900 hp powertrain, Automobili Pininfarina engineers – working closely with sound designers Novo Sonic – have created a driving experience of supreme quality and clarity.

The sound experienced by the driver has been refined over 2,000 hours of development and fine-tuning to provide an authentic electric vehicle soundtrack that heightens the connection between the car, driver and road surface – for a completely immersive driving experience. It helps to create the kind of emotional connection you would expect when driving the most powerful Italian sports car ever made

The interior soundscape changes in response to which of the five driving modes is selected, allowing drivers to tailor the experience to suit their personal preference and the driving environment. With a range of 476 km (WLTP combined) clients won’t necessarily want the same soundtrack on a lengthy cross-country trip or city drive as they will when pushing the performance levels of the Battista. And in Carattere mode, drivers can select which of the individual modes to employ, providing the ultimate choice in how to experience Battista

Automobili Pininfarina’s philosophy of crafting timeless, collectible masterpieces has been strengthened with the announcement of its partnership with master horologists BOVET 1822. The two Houses exist with a shared vision and expertise in making beautifully designed pieces of art, passionately created by dedicated teams while looking forward to a sustainable future.

To mark the partnership, BOVET has created the Battista Tourbillon, an exquisite timepiece designed and created alongside the Battista hyper GT. The two brands worked together to design and engineer an exquisitely detailed and technical timepiece with unrivalled craftsmanship and attention to detail.

At BOVET, every timepiece is constructed by the world’s most skilled precision artisans who share the same spirit and passion as the team that craft each Battista at the Cambiano facility in Italy. Both the timepiece and the Battista are individual to the client’s specification, ensuring unrivalled exclusivity.

Exquisite detailing is found in both the Battista hyper GT and the Battista Tourbillon, with the exclusive new timepiece featuring intricate nods to the Battista’s exterior curves as well as its Triangolo patterning, Impulso alloy wheels, the signature E-Heart and unique Iconica Blu colour palette. A reference to the Battista’s use of sustainable materials is found in the Tourbillon’s strap, made from 100 per cent vegan rubber instead of the traditional alligator leather.

Mechanical timepieces are, by their very nature, sustainable – with the right care and attention it will last for centuries – and BOVET’s manufacturing processes are designed to capture and recycle any waste materials. For Automobili Pininfarina, sustainable materials and processes are at the heart of the business’s future, reconsidering and implementing new sustainable methods throughout the production process, right down to the tanning of the leather seats using olive leaves from the local area.

The Battista Tourbillon from BOVET 1822 and Automobili Pininfarina is the result of a collaboration that celebrates the heritage of both brands, with sights set firmly on creating a new era in luxury.

Did you know…

  • …no two Battistas will be the same?
    Every client is invited to take advantage of Automobile Pininfarina’s bespoke personalisation service, with the potential to create no fewer than 128 million interior combinations. The total number of possible individual designs stretches to 13.9 quintillion and the Automobili Pininfarina design team will help clients put their personal stamp on each vehicle.
  • …audiophiles will love the Battista?
    A bespoke 1300 W Naim Audio sound system has been exclusively developed for the Battista featuring 10 elegantly integrated speakers, including a Dual Voice Coil Subwoofer between the seats and super-tweeters in the doors. The built-in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) system has been optimised to provide an auditorium-like sound quality.
  •  … the rear wing has two jobs?
    The intelligent deployable rear wing extends automatically at high speeds and can generate up to 250kg of downforce. It also operates as an aerobrake when slowing from high speeds, helping to stabilise the vehicle and support the traditional friction, and advanced regenerative, braking systems.
  •  … Automobili Pininfarina has more than nine decades of design heritage?
    The Battista is the first car to exclusively wear the Pininfarina badge, but it is the latest in a long line of elegant, beautifully proportioned vehicles stretching back over 91 years. Some of the most valuable cars ever designed were penned by Pininfarina, ranging from masterpieces like the classic Cisitalia 202 to modern icons including the Ferrari F40.
  • … the EV powertrain isn’t the only sustainable element of the Battista?
    There’s more to automotive sustainability than pure-electric powertrains – and this is evident in the exquisite sustainable leather interior elements tanned with olive leaves, a process that reduces the need for harmful chemicals in the creation of every Battista
