Pininfarina Battista Arrives In The UK With 1,874 HP

The Pininfarina Battista has arrived in the United Kingdom where it will celebrate its British debut at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting on April 5th.

Unveiled last month at the Geneva Motor Show, the Battista is a “luxury electric hyper performance GT” which has performance specifications that boggle the mind. It’s four electric motors produce a staggering combined output of 1,874 hp (1,397 kW / 1,900 PS) and 1,696 lb-ft (2,300 Nm) of torque. This enables the model to rocket from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than two seconds and 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) in less than 12 seconds.

Those are some truly impressive numbers and the top speed of more than 217 mph (350 km/h) isn’t too shabby either. It’s also worth mentioning that the Battista’s Rimac-sourced battery pack has a capacity of 120 kWh and this enables the car to be driven approximately 300 miles (483 km) on a single charge.

While the performance specifications are certainly eye-catching, Pininfarina noted the Battista could appeal to ultra-wealthy drivers in the UK as the first deliveries will begin a few months before the whole of Greater London will become an Ultra Low Emissions Zone in 2021. While it’s doubtful that owners would have a problem coughing up £12.50 ($16.35 / €14.57) to pay for driving something less eco-friendly, they won’t have to worry about it thanks to the car’s electric powertrain.

According to Automobili Pininfarina CEO Michael Perschke, “The Battista is a truly beautiful, guilt-free hypercar – the first EV to really fall in love with – because electricity enables us to develop it with zero emissions and as the most powerful car that will have ever been designed and built in Italy.”

Production is limited to 150 units and UK customers can place their orders at H.R. Owen in London or Rybrook in the British Midlands.

    For such a small company, with such a humble background, Rimac has really become a player in spearheading the hypercar segment of the electric market and having customers like Aston Martin, Jaguar and Koenigsegg and now with Pininfarina’s Battista; not too shabby for a company born out of a hobby garage. No wonder Porsche bought a 10% stake in them.

    Looks great and amazing power. It’s about time to see who will break the 2000hp mark.

    $2.2 million for what looks like an electrified F8 Tributo? No, thank you.

      The F8 Tributo’s design roots come from them. Pininfarina designed the original 458. That’s their language, not Ferrari’s.

      And to call it an electrified F8 is to be stupidly dismissive. Faster to 60, more horsepower, higher top speed, different aerodynamics. The Battista is on a different level compared to the F8.
