In this bite-sized episode, Jonny Smith looks at one of the stars of The Geneva Motor Show 2019, the Pininfarina Battista 1900hp electric hypercar - possibly the most powerful Italian car ever?
Normally a design house, the Battista signals their first foray into making their own supercars, and of course, they are electric.
Each car will sell for approx €2 million (roughly equivalent to £1.7 million or US$ 2.24 million).
Rapid charge at 350kw to 80% in 40 mins.
390mm front and 380mm rear diameter brakes.
Official test driver for the project is ex F1 Nick Heidfeld. Dr Peter Tutzer is the (ex Bugatti, Porsche and Pagani) chassis guru.
Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina founded the styling house in 1928 and met Enzo Ferrari in 1951 to close a deal for Pininfarina to exclusively style Ferrari road cars.
In 2015 Pininfarina was bought for £125 million by Indian industrial giant Mahindra.
