Battista Debuts in North America
Stunning Pure-electric 1,900 hp Hypercar
Automobili Pininfarina launched its stunning pure-electric 1,900 hp Battista hypercar in North America on 16th April – just one year after the company was introduced at the 2018 Rome Formula E race. Shown in the days leading up to the New York Auto Show, the production-ready model was debuted during an exclusive, invitation-only event at Studio 525 in Chelsea by Michael Perschke, CEO, and Luca Borgogno, Design Director. During the event, one of only 150 Battistas, painted in a stunning colourway of Grigio Luserna satin-grey carbon with Blu Iconica design accents, was on display. The world-first car was revealed to an excited audience of car collectors, supercar owners, business leaders, automotive influencers and members of the media. Deliveries of the Battista to North American clients begin in late 2020, and over half the allocation has already been reserved through Automobili Pininfarina’s network of six specialist luxury car retailers in Los Angeles (O’Gara Coach Co. LLC), Miami (The Collection LLC), New York (Miller Motorcars), San Francisco (Price Simms Auto Group), Toronto (Pfaff Automotive Partners) and Vancouver (Weissach).
