Just over a year ago, Pininfarina unleashed its Battista electric GT supercar. Now a special Battista Anniversario edition has been revealed wearing a new rear wing and lighter alloy wheels.
We love the look of the Battista and the Italian design firm has refined the limited-run model with some aerodynamic enhancements and lighter 21-inch, centre-locking alloy wheels which shed 10 kg in weight.
The Battista Anniversario combines 3 exterior colours including Bianco Sestriere white, Grigio Antonelliano gray and Iconica Blu which forms part of the optional Furiosa package which also includes a front carbon fibre splitter, side blades and a rear diffuser. The large rear wing increases downforce at speed to improve stability.
The interior is finished in black leather and Alcantara with blue contrast stitching and a blue 12 o’clock mark seen on the steering wheel.
The Battista Anniversario adopts the same electric powertrain which comprises 4 electric motors (1 at each wheel) with a total system output of 1 397 kW and 2 300 Nm of torque. The sprint from zero to 100 kph is claimed at under 2 seconds, while zero to 300 kph takes less than 12 seconds with a top speed of 350 kph. A 120 kWh battery pack allows for an electric range of over 500 km.
Only 150 Pininfarina Battistas will be built but only 5 examples of the Battista Anniversario will see the light of day as part of the same production run. The Battista will be built in Cambiano, Turin, Italy.
Pricing for the Battista Anniversario is pegged at $2.87-million or over R44-million at current exchange rates.
