The cabin of the Pininfarina Battista will come with several personalisation options

Visually, the Battista has the classic Pininfarina design, using the same design principle of form and function in harmony as seen in classic Pininfarina cars reaching back to the Cisitalia 202 of 1947 and through more than 100 Ferraris, the most recent of which was launched this decade. Inside, the car gets a futuristic-looking cabin which is completely driver-oriented with two displays positioned behind the steering wheel offering a host of information. The hypercar features dual tone black and brown interior using high-quality leather. Plans are in place for the opportunity to fully personalise each car at Pininfarina SpA’s Cambiano headquarters.

The Pininfarina Battista is literally all carbon fibre, featuring a carbon fibre monocoque chassis and a carbon fibre body too. To achieve an optimum weight distribution, the Battista comes with a unique T-shaped design for the 120 kWh battery pack with four motors independently distributing torque and power to each wheel, delivering all the benefits of modern torque vectoring. Cooling circuits and systems are based around five radiators.

The Battista’s suspension is tuned specifically to deliver a thrilling, engaging and yet comfortable dynamic experience. Stopping performance is achieved from the carbon-ceramic 6-piston brakes (390 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear) provide fade-free deceleration and hugely effective brake regeneration to the battery will be engineered into the system. The active rear wing features an air brake function. The driver will be able to electronically adjust the dynamic experience through multiple modes tuned to a range of driving scenarios and will also be able to tailor the noise the car makes.
