Recently, at the Dubai Autodrome racetrack, the Pininfarina Battista hypercar broke a total of 6 speed records. It is worth mentioning that this electric supercar model has achieved a series of extremely impressive achievements when tested on standard road surfaces, without needing to use the support of resin to increase traction like VHT. or PJ1 TrackBite.

New records set by Pininfarina Battista include:

– Accelerate from 0 – 60 mph (96.5 km/h) in just 1.79 seconds
– Accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 1.86 seconds
– Accelerate from 0 – 120 mph (193 km/h) in just 4.49 seconds
– Accelerate from 0 – 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 4.75 seconds
– Braking distance from 100 – 0 km/h in 31 meters
– Maximum travel distance reaches 300 miles (482 km) according to the test cycle set by the EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency)

In particular, the acceleration time records are the fastest in the world in terms of mass-produced car models on the market, not including limited-quantity test cars. The record for braking distance is considered only within the range of pure electric vehicle models, excluding vehicles using internal combustion engines or hybrid vehicles. The record for distance traveled according to the EPA cycle is considered exclusively in pure electric hypercar models.

Mr. Paolo Dellacha, Production and Technical Director of Automobili Pininfarina GmbH said: “This result is achieved thanks to core factors such as optimally distributed vehicle mass, low center of gravity, specially tuned chassis. In particular, the flexible suspension system and tires confirm durability over thousands of miles of testing. The amount of torque from 4 electric motors distributed in harmony has brought unprecedented power, thereby helping Battista become the car with the fastest acceleration among vehicles legally circulating on the market. public roads around the world”.

Pininfarina Battista is the first product of Automobili Pininfarina GmbH, a manufacturer currently headquartered in Munich (Germany) after separating from the Pininfarina SpA design studio (Italy) in 2015. Currently, there is also Automobili Pininfarina GmbH. and Pininfarina SpA are both owned by Mahindra & Mahindra (India). Studio Pininfarina SpA once designed the VinFast Lux A and Lux SA models.

The Battista supercar project was launched by Automobili Pininfarina GmbH in 2019. The car’s name is inspired by the founder of Battista and was developed with the most beautiful parameters in the field of supercars on a global scale such as combined capacity. of 4 electric motors reaches 1,900 horsepower thanks to maximum torque of up to 2,300 Nm.

Thanks to the “huge” parameters mentioned above, Pininfarina Battista has surpassed rival Rimac Nevera, an electric supercar model that recorded an acceleration time of 0 – 60 mph (96.5 km/h) of 1.9 seconds. in August 2021 on a carefully prepared drag strip. It is worth mentioning that both of these pure electric hypercar models use the same electric motor system, but Nevera is more powerful with a capacity of up to 1,914 horsepower. In return, Battista is lighter at 2,063 kg compared to Nevera’s 2,150 kg.

Pininfarina Battista electric supercar is limited to 150 vehicles, with a price of no less than 2.25 million USD/unit. In addition, the car also has a special edition Anniversario with many more unique features and is limited to only 5 cars, all of which have owners with an estimated selling price of no less than 2.9 million USD/car.
