Automobili Pininfarina showcases new Battista hyper car at the Monterey Car Week festival
The world's first pure-electric hyper GT, the Automobili Pininfarina Battista, has made its debut in production form on the roads of California. As a part of a special programme of events during the Monterey Car Week, the Battista's first road drive.
The debut of the production-spec Battista will ensure that the US clients are among the first to experience the 1,900hp performance and to take a look at the beautiful Black Exposed Signature Carbon body design.
The exclusive bodywork and precise drivetrain system are complemented by an exclusively tailored interior with Pilota seats and satin black leather, quilted Iconica Blu Alcantara, and Jewellery Pack finished in brushed aluminum anodized in black.
The audience at the event will also see the US debut of the Battista Anniversario, a limited-run of merely five vehicles that represent the pinnacle of the brand in terms of design, aerodynamics, and performance.
Both machines will also be on display at the Concours d'Elegance festival, as the pure-electric GT will be placed among other exclusive Battista machines from different periods of the brand's 91-year history.
René Wollmann, Product Platform Director Sports Cars, Automobili Pininfarina, said: Every driver has an emotional bond with a car and the sound of Battista will nurture this connection, not by replicating a familiar car sound, but with one that radiates the beauty of Battista's design both inside and out. This way, the Battista will not only impress with its aesthetic appeal and performance but also on a new emotional level enhanced through the sound. We look forward to the input we will receive from clients in the US as we fine-tune Battista's sonic experience.
