Top Gear Gets Up Close And Personal With The Pininfarina Battista

The Pininfarina Battista was one of the highlights in this year’s Geneva Motor Show, and Top Gear’s Rory Reid recently had the opportunity to take a closer look at the all-electric hypercar.

The most remarkable thing about the Battista is its powertrain. Sourced from Rimac, which means it is essentially the same as what you’ll find beneath the skin of the C_Two, it consists of four electric motors and a T-shaped, 120 kWh lithium-ion battery pack mounted within the center tunnel and behind the seats.

All up, it pumps out an extraordinary 1874 hp and 1696 lb-ft (2300 Nm) of torque, which results in some rather incredible performance figures.

According to Pininfarina, the Battista will hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 2 seconds and accelerates to 300 km/h (186 mph) in under 12 seconds, or a second faster than the McLaren Speedtail! The company quotes a 217 mph (350 km/h) top speed, but we suspect that’s very conservative, especially when you consider the C_Two will allegedly hit 258 mph (415 km/h).

At the same time, the driving range on a single charge is more than 280 miles (450 km) – which is not bad when you consider how much performance the car has.

The Pininfarina Battista, though, is not a vehicle dominated solely by performance; it is also absolutely jaw-dropping to look at. Prices start at around $2.5 million and production will be capped at 150 units worldwide.

    would i want one, of course, do I love it’s design, not 100%. It kind of a let down, it looks so much overall shape of a 488, mixed in with a few sprinkles of 720s and i8. just not original enough to impress. to each their own

    I basically make approximately $6,000-$8,000 every month through the internet. It is actually enough to simply substitute my last jobs net earnings, specially thinking about I only just do the work about 20 hour each and every week from home.I ended up losing my job after working for the same employer for years, I wanted very trustworthy source of income. I was not thinking about packages that miguide you to make you millionnare within few days you can find all over the internet. Those all of them are sort of ponzi mlm plan wherein you have to first make interested customers and then sell something to friends and family members or anybody to make sure they will be in your team. The greatest benefit of working on-line is that I am always home with the little ones and also enjoy lots of free time with my family members in various beautiful beaches of the world. Honestly,it is easier than you would believe, all you have to do is submit a simple form to receive front line access to the Home Profit System. The guidelines are very simple, you do not have to be a computer whiz, but you must be aware how to use the internet. It is as simple as being on Facebook. Here’s the most effective way to start >>>> GOO.IO/Ux3JQo

    Really good looking thing with amazing performance. All examples will be sold for sure. The biggest problem – Tesla Roadster. Same, if not better performance, arguably on the same level of beauty (Tesla is more interesting while Batista is overall more beautiful). Ok, build quality will be in favor of Batista, but the 1:10 price is in favor of Tesla and this is something that Batista simply can’t beat with anything.
