year 2020 is also the 90th anniversary of the legendary Pininfarina SpA design
house, which has taken the design brief for the Battista and produced a classic
Pininfarina: an elegant form that seamlessly integrates the car’s innovative
engineering solutions to deliver unprecedented performance. It is the same
design principle of form and function in harmony as seen in classic Pininfarina

zero-emissions, luxury cars solely branded Pininfarina, delivering on a
long-held family dream that has been carried by founder, Battista, his son
Sergio, and his grandson, the current Pininfarina SpA Chairman, Paolo.

exciting automotive story imaginable. The Battista is the hypercar of the
future, inspired by a legendary past. It combines true inspiration and
innovation in its technical achievement and emotional appeal. Electrification
unlocks the door to a new level of performance and a zero-emissions future,
whilst a passion and respect for automotive history will define how this
landmark car looks and feels. We aim for the Battista to be a future classic
and automotive icon, writing its own page in automotive history books.”
ingredients for success reach further than statistics and history. A group of
automotive experts, the like of which have never been assembled before for the
launch of a new car company, are working for Automobili Pininfarina and
partnering with Pininfarina SpA and an enviable list of technology specialists
headed by the likes of Rimac and Pirelli. The result is that the Battista will
arrive next year having been developed through the expertise and inspiration of
a team that have been integral to the launches of cars such as the Bugatti
Veyron and Chiron, Ferrari Sergio, Lamborghini Urus, McLaren P1, Mercedes
AMG-Project One, Pagani Zonda and Porsche Mission E.
