PERFORMANCE HYPERCAR – Technically, the Pininfarina Battista is a car with a very sophisticated, from the monocoque carbon fiber with panels of the same material, the choice to keep down the weight. The battery is 120 kWh, with liquid cooling system, is a “T-shape” and extends from the central tunnel to the rear (for better weight distribution), and feeds four electric motors made by the Croatian company Rimac. The performances are mind-boggling: 1.900 HP and 2,300 Nm of torque, able, according to the manufacturer, to make it go from 0 to 300 km/h in 12 seconds.
COAST 2 MILLION – The Pininfarina Battista should go into production at Pininfarina in Turin, in the course of 2020 with the mode of craftsmanship.
