Luxury Italian carmaker Automobili Pininfarina has confirmed the Battista hyper GT’s performance credentials by revealing its record-breaking official acceleration and braking figures for the first time.
The pure-electric Battista’s unique launch control technology contributes to Formula 1 car-beating acceleration, with 0-60 mph achieved in 1.79s, 0-100 km/h completed in 1.86s, 0-120 mph executed in 4.49s and 0-200 km/h obliterated in just 4.79 seconds.
A car as fast as Battista demands strong stopping power and official tests confirm Battista is the fastest braking EV in the world, completing 100-0 km/h in just 31 metres.
The confirmed figures have been revealed as the Battista makes its dynamic debut in the Middle East, showcasing its unrivaled dynamic capabilities on track at the Dubai Autodrome in the United Arab Emirates.
The pure-electric Battista is the most powerful Italian car ever made with 1,900 hp and 2,340 Nm of torque. The hyper GT has a top speed of 350 km/h, a WLTP range of up to 476 km and is priced from €2.2 million plus local taxes.
Each Battista is the result of more than 1,250 hours of skilled craftsmanship in Cambiano, Italy, where no more than 150 examples will be produced. The new hyper GT promises new levels of bespoke tailoring.
Clients can choose from near-unlimited levels of interior colour schemes and finishes, in addition to exterior colour combinations with bespoke detailing and exclusive aluminium Exterior Jewellery and alloy wheel designs.
The Battista also features a unique soundscape, SUONO PURO, that complements the driving experience, that can be personalised via one of five driving modes – Pura, Calma, Energica, Furiosa, and Carattere.
