Luxury Italian carmaker Automobili Pininfarina has just set some record-breaking acceleration and braking performance for their the new Battista pure-electric hyper GT. The Battista debuted with a dramatic demonstration of power at Dubai Autodrome, celebrating a series of world records recently achieved in its final round of homologation:
- 0-60mph in 1.79 seconds
- 0-100km/h in 1.86 seconds
- 0-120mph in 4.49 seconds
- 0-200km/h in 4.75 seconds
- 100-0km/h in 31 meters – A world record for an electric car
The Battista’s unique launch control technology contributes to Formula 1 car-beating acceleration, with 0-60mph achieved in 1.79s, 0-100km/h completed in 1.86s, 0-120mph 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 meters (102 feet).
The confirmed figures have been revealed as the Battista makes its dynamic debut in the Middle East, showcasing its unrivalled dynamic capabilities on track at the Dubai Autodrome in the United Arab Emirates.
“Perfectly optimized weight distribution and low centre of gravity are at the heart of this result. The combination of bespoke chassis and suspension tuning, tyres proven over many thousands of test miles and four-motor torque vectoring delivering unprecedented power enables Battista to be the fastest accelerating road-legal car in the world.” – Paolo Dellacha, Automobili Pininfarina Chief Product and Engineering Officer
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. Battista’s performance credentials were recorded and verified at Nardò, in Italy, as part of its global test and development programme earlier this year.
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. With a total of 128 million possible interior combinations alone, 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 the 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 personalized via one of five driving modes – Pura, Calma, Energica, Furiosa and Carattere. These distinct modes give the Battista unique character, altering the experience depending on the driver’s preference.
