Alex Kreetzer comments / Who is ready for the most powerful road-legal car ever designed? Automobili Pininfarina’s Battista is stealing the headlines at Geneva Auto Show. And it’s obvious why.
First off all, let’s begin with the real facts that any real electric sports super car company goes for development to Pininfarina.
Similarly, the all-electric hypercar is to be the most powerful road-legal car ever designed. More noteworthy, going from 0 to 100 km/h in less than two seconds. Also and above all, zero emissions.
In addition and similarly, it looks pretty good too.
As Bloomberg reporting:
As a result, it’s getting developed by a dream team. A dream team of executives, designers, and engineers. All likewise coming from Lamborghini, Porsche, BMW, Pagani, and Formula 1 and Formula E racing teams. Also and all for the Battista. It therefore enters the growing global market for expensive, hand-built, and extremely all-electric limited-production cars.
Likewise and from 2009 through 2017, sales of $180,000-and-over cars more than quadrupled worldwide. All according to IHS Markit.
Finally, Pininfarina is working for Automobili Pininfarina and partnering with Pininfarina SpA. Likewise, an enviable list of technology specialists headed by Rimac and Pirelli.
Cars such as the Bugatti Veyron and Chiron. Similarly, Ferrari Sergio, Lamborghini Urus, McLaren P1, Mercedes AMG-Project One, Pagani Zonda and Porsche Mission E.
This resulting hypercar is appealing to the world’s automotive connoisseurs from a technical and aesthetic standpoint.
That’s from Los Angeles to London to Tokyo. Plans in place for the opportunity to fully personalise each car. Located at Pininfarina SpA’s Cambiano headquarters.
So the Battista seeks to break new ground in the history of automotive when it arrives in 2020.
So a carbon fibre monocoque chassis and visually stunning carbon fibre body also provides the foundation and visual definition.
In conclusion, the result will be staggering performance for a road car: power and torque of 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm, providing acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than two seconds. Also faster than a current Formula 1 car), 300 km/h in less than 12 seconds and the ability to do a top speed of up to 350 km/h. All with a potential zero-emissions range of up to 450 kilometres and an extreme focus on drivability.
