Italy's Fastest Hypercar will be Called the Battista

A fully electric luxury hypercar faster than a Formula 1 car.

2y ago

Automobili Pininfarina has announced the fastest Italian car ever built will be called the Battista. This hypercar will be launched late in 2020.

Carmag claims the firm will offer no more than 150 units at a price estimated between $2-million and $2,5-million each.

So, what is the Battista? The Battista is described as a fully electric luxury hypercar. The company goes on to say that the Battista will have “extreme levels of technology”. Being fully electric we expect great performance. The company claims the Battista “has the potential to accelerate” to 60 mph in “less than two seconds”. This means that the Battista accelerates faster than a Formula 1 car!



What is even more amazing is Automobili Pininfarina claims their hypercar will also break the 400 km/h (248 mph) top speed barrier. The Italian automaker states that the range offered by the hypercar will be over 480 km (just under 300 miles).

Where does Battista come from?

Company chairman Paolo Pininfarina had the following to say: “This is genuinely a dream come true. My grandfather always had the vision that one day there would be a stand-alone range of Pininfarina-branded cars. This hypercar will boast world-beating performance, technological innovation and of course elegant styling. For me, we simply had to call it Battista. His dream becomes reality today as we link our glorious past with the future of motoring”.

What do you think about this hypercar? Let me know down in the comments.

  • Interesting. I wonder what the range is when you give it the beans and what mode you have to be in to get the best range.

    Someone has to pay the price of advancing things, new technology is always expensive.

    Personally I think electric is a dead-end but, that's just an opinion and if this in some way pushes the boundaries of what's capable then so be it.

    2.5 million? The people who are going to buy this already own all the other cars so why not ask a 2.5 million base price?! It's not going to turn off a single potential customer for a 7 figure car.
