Shipments of Pininfarina Battista Begin In US With Two Special Models

Posted on

It has been a long journey for Pininfarina Battista to the US streets. The company debuted as a concept car in 2018 and today announced that it will ship its first intended car for US clients this month.

This electric hypercar offers 1,900 horsepower (1,417 kilowatts) and 1,696 pound-feet (2,300 Newton-meters) of torque. It has four electric motors and a 120 kilowatt-hour battery from Rimac. The car can accelerate to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in less than two seconds.

The first Battista to arrive in the US was completely bespoke. The West Coast client opted for a silver and carbon fiber theme with red aluminum details. It features matching red brake calipers and a center lock ring, which complements the car’s glossy black wheels. The EV also comes with a Carbon Accent Package.

Inside, the tan leather interior lacks chrome. The red leather chair features black contrast stitching and quilting. Pininfarina also used black quilting on the center console and door inserts. The car even comes with a bespoke key, as the client requested.

The second Battista to come to the US was one of the Anniversario models – one in five. All were sold to US clients, and the car took more time to build than the standard Battista.

According to the company, the Anniversario edition took 14 craftsmen and 1,340 hours to complete. The regular Battista has 10 craftsmen producing it, taking 1,250 hours to build. The car moves through 14 stations before it finishes. Pininfarina will ship the Anniversario variant to its owners in the US later this month.

Pininfarina will present the car to its owner at an event in New York this month. The company will also ship the vehicle along with a newly created four-piece luggage collection designed to fit on the Battista. The collection includes cabin travel bags, suit bags, shoe bags, and weekend bags. Pininfarina can customize the trunk to the specifications of each car.

Automobili Pininfarina will produce only 150 Battista supercars, which went into production this summer. We have a chance to drive it in 2021, and you can see a review of the first drive here.
