Pininfarina has confirmed that its new electric hypercar will take the name of the company’s founder, Battista Farina. Due to be revealed in March 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Automobili Pininfarina Battista will be the most powerful car ever produced developing 1,900bhp and 2,300Nm of torque.

Supposedly, the Battista will cover the 0-62mph sprint in less than two seconds and will have a top speed of 250mph. Pininfarina also claims the Battista will be capable of 310 miles between charges. However, official figures are yet to be confirmed.

The best hypercars ever

The Battista will launch in 2020 with no more than 150 examples being produced, with the USA, Europe and Middle East set to get 50 examples each. Prices are expected to be between £1.5 million and £2 million.

When making the announcement on the new Battista’s nameplate, the company’s Chairman, Paolo Pininfarina, grandson to Battista Farina, said: “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. For me, we simply had to call it Battista.”

The famous Italian coachbuilder and design house, which is now owned by Indian firm Mahindra & Mahindra, announced that it would start producing its own vehicles as Automobili Pininfarina, a new division created to stand alongside the existing consultancy business.

The vehicle’s design will be carried out under the direction of Automobili Pininfarina’s newly appointed design director Luca Borgogno, who has moved across from the consultancy division. The sketches released by the firm are said to be Borgogno’s early vision for the car.

Mahindra was one of the original teams for the all-electric single seater series, Formula E, entering in the inaugural 2014-15 season and has said that the lessons learned from its participation will be applied to the cars it makes.

The company has named former Volkswagen Group executive Michael Perschke as its first chief executive officer, who said: “I am honoured to lead Automobili Pininfarina and our ambition is to make it a respected and desirable brand recognised by connoisseurs who value design heritage, substance, and sustainable high performance EV technology”.
