Pininfarina’s PF0 Hypercar To Premiere At Monterey As A Concept

Pininfarina will premiere a concept version of its PF0 electric hypercar at next month’s Monterey Car Week in California.

Previewed by a single image in April, the PF0 will look to join the hypercar elite and Pininfarina has already made some big claims. For starters, the hypercar will accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than two seconds and hit 186 mph (300 km/h) in under 12 seconds. What’s more, the PF0 will reach roughly 250 mph (400 km/h) and be capable of travelling for 310 miles (500 km) on a charge.

The design of the Pininfarina hypercar is the work of Luca Borgogno, an accomplished designer who previously headed up Lamborghini’s Turin design studio.

Good looks but will it have Italian reliability?

On initial impressions, it seems as though the Pininfarina PF0 will share some design similarities with previous vehicles from the design house. For example, the front end is somewhat reminiscent of the Ferrari Sergio. Elsewhere, we can can see prominent flying buttress stretching from the sides to the rear of the performance car. Despite the vehicle’s wild performance claims, there are no immediately obvious air intakes to cool the electric powertrain.

If Pininfarina does indeed reveal the car in concept guise at Pebble Beach, it will probably look a little more extreme than the production model. Nevertheless, it will show to the world whether or not Pininfarina is capable of designing and manufacturing its very own hypercar to rival Bugatti, Koenigsegg, and Rimac.

The road-going Pininfarina PF0 is tipped to reach the roads early next decade. Pricing remains unknown.

“Following a successful launch in Rome, we now face a new 30-month race of our own to deliver our promise and the Pininfarina family’s dream: sustainable luxury, hyper-performance and beautiful electric cars branded Pininfarina,” chief executive Michael Perschke said in April.

“Our initial performance targets are aggressive, yes, but our ambition is to set standards in both performance and design: we believe it is what Pininfarina stands for.”
