The most powerful production car ever designed and built in Italy. The first vehicle will arrive in North America in August.

With 1874 horsepower and 2360Nm (1740 lb-ft) torque from a four-motor electric drivetrain shared with Rimac Nevera, Battista accelerates from 0 to 60mph faster than a Formula-1 car, in less than 2 seconds.

The Automobili Pininfarina Battista hypercar is powered by a 120 kWh battery that powers four electric motors - one at each wheel - and gives the WLTP a range of up to 310 miles on a single charge.

As you can imagine, each of the 150 exclusive bespoke models will be individually handcrafted by Automobili Pininfarina Atelier craftsmen. The company promises a new level of handmade finishing and personalization.

The attention to detail is extraordinary as each Battista takes 10 weeks to build from start to finish, and 10 craftsmen put together over 1250 hours for each car. The unique design and finish of the exclusive Battista Anniversario (limited to 5 pieces worldwide) extends this time to 1340 hours, and its hand-painting requires an extended 18-week schedule - up from 3-4 weeks for standard vehicle.

The company says there are 13.9 quintillion possible exterior combinations and 128 million possible interior configurations, including colors, materials and engravings, meaning owners can make their Battista truly unique.

Customers who visit the shop will have the opportunity to meet the team working on the car, work with the team to tailor their car's design, and even see it being built.

The Battista Hyper GT is a dream come true that began with design icon Battista 'Pinin' Farina's ambition to create a beautiful car bearing only the Pininfarina name. We are proud to have achieved this goal, and in doing so, we are leading the way into an exciting new era of luxury, where design purity and a focus on sustainable innovation will shape the Automobili Pininfarina series of incredible new vehicles
