Pininfarina Reveals The First Production Model Of Its Battista EV GT Hypercar

For the last couple of years, legendary automotive design house Pininfarina has been showing off its forthcoming Battista model — a fully electric hyper grand touring car that’s been created entirely in-house by the Turin-based studio. And now, after more than two years of teasers — as well as the reveal of an ultra-limited-edition $2.9M “Anniversario” variant — the famed Italian coachbuilder has not only unveiled the first production-spec Battista but has opted to do so during this year’s Monterey Car week, unleashing the 1,900hp hypercar onto the winding coastal roads of central California.

Constructed around a state-of-the-art carbon-fiber chassis equipped with a double-wishbone coil-over suspension system and carbon bodywork, the Battista production model hasn’t been watered down from its conceptual form and looks remarkably similar to the original prototype. What’s more, the concept’s mind-blowing specs have gone unchanged, with the Battista boasting a torque output of 1,696ft-lbs, a sub-two-second 0-60mph time, the ability to hit 125mph in just six seconds, and the speed and acceleration needed to reach 186mph in 12. The final production version of the E-GT car also packs a battery with a 310-mile range and the ability to receive a 20% – 80% charge in only 25 minutes. Pininfarina will also be using the annual California car event to publically pull the cover off one of its Anniversario-spec Battistas.
