What cars will rival the 1900 horsepower Pininfarina PF0?
With Pininfarina's electric hypercar nearing production, I thought I'd have a look at its potential competition...
1900 horsepower, 1700lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60mph time of under 2 seconds - these are the statistics associated with Pininfarina’s upcoming electric hypercar, the PF0. Having hit the headlines recently due to the fact that it’s near completion, I thought now would be the most opportune of occasions to discuss what cars will be rivalling this goliath when it finally hits production. Starting with...
With an astonishing 1887bhp, the Rimac C_Two is the closest rival to the PF0 - and little wonder when Pininfarina get their batteries and motors from Rimac! How the two differ upon their inevitable twin test is something I am extremely excited to see.
We know little about Tesla’s 2020 electric hypercar at the moment - other than Elon Musk’s promise that it’ll be the fastest car in the world in every possible way. While we can take that particular statement with a pinch of marijuana salt, it should prove a worthy rival for the PF0.
Coming to Geneva 2019 is Koenigsegg’s successor to the Agera - and with rumours pointing to it producing at least 1400bhp, it sure as hell won’t be taking any prisoners. While that may be a lot less than the PF0, the Koenigsegg won’t house any electric motors - meaning it’ll have lightness on its side. Vive la internal combustion.
Bugatti Chiron SuperSports
While it isn’t confirmed yet, all the rumours are pointing strongly towards Bugatti unveiling the Chiron SuperSports at Geneva 2019. It’s also thought that the SS will be Bugatti’s all out assault on the 300mph barrier - not that they’d admit to that prior to attempting a run. And the reason for that is due to the next car on this list...
Hennessey Venom F5
John Hennessey released this car under the promise that it would be the world’s first 300mph production car. With at least 1600bhp (potentially more if it proves to be not enough to reach 300mph), the Venom F5 is bound to accelerate like it’s moving through a time warp. And in that respect, it could prove to be a wildcard rival for the Pininfarina PF0.
Be sure to let me know in the comments if there are any other cars out there that will prove to be a good rival for the PF0. And also, out of all of the cars listed here and any others you can think of, which do you think will prove to be the most dominant?
