Automobili Pininfarina is taking the most significant step yet in delivering its pioneering pure-electric Battista hyper GT, with the first production-spec example making its debut on Californian roads as part of a series of exciting experiences curated for its clients during the upcoming Monterey Car Week (12-15 August 2021).

The finished Battista features distinctive black exposed signature carbon fibre bodywork and black gloss precision polished Impulso rims.

Inside, the first production-spec model to emerge from the Cambiano atelier facility in Italy, features black sustainable luxury leather with striking Iconica Blu contrast stitching and quilted Pilota seats in Iconica Blu Alcantara. The seats feature Pilota Carbon Components finished in black exposed signature carbon coordinating with the striking exterior.

Monterey Car Week will also see the US premiere of the exclusive Battista Anniversario, itself a tribute to the life and work of design icon Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina. Limited to just five vehicles worldwide, it represents the pinnacle of Automobili Pininfarina’s Pura design philosophy, with aerodynamic enhancements and tailored detailing providing a uniquely dynamic personality.

As part of an extensive programme prepared for Automobili Pininfarina’s clients in North America, the exclusive hyper GT will be joined at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance by a fleet of iconic Pininfarina-designed vehicles to celebrate more than 90 years of design excellence.

“The premiere of the first production-specification Battista in the US marks the beginning of another significant chapter in the Automobili Pininfarina story. We are excited to showcase the beautiful and sustainable future of luxury to our clients, while celebrating more than 90 years of Pininfarina design heritage during Monterey Car Week. We look forward to our clients in the US experiencing the immense dynamic performance and personalised luxury of Battista for the first time.” – Per Svantesson, CEO of Automobili Pininfarina

Monterey Car Week will host the US premiere of the Battista Anniversario – an exclusive model limited to just five units for clients worldwide. The Anniversario features a unique Automobili Pininfarina-designed livery and bi-colour tinted Furiosa Pack consisting of front splitter, side blades and rear diffuser, with outer carbon parts finished in black exposed signature carbon and inner parts in exposed signature carbon tinted in Iconica Blu.

At the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, three special judging classes will showcase Pininfarina’s 91 years of history, with a cavalcade of iconic Pininfarina designs celebrating the unrivalled design heritage which has inspired the form of the Battista hyper GT. Automobili Pininfarina Chief Design Officer, Luca Borgogno, will join the panel of honorary judges at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

No more than 150 Battista hyper GTs will be created for clients worldwide. North America and Europe will account for the majority of sales, followed by the Middle East and Asia. The exclusive hyper GT is priced from $2.2m and is available to order through a global network of specialist retailers.  Across North America, this presence includes retailers in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, Toronto, New York, Miami and Vancouver. The Battista battery is available with up to 10 years of manufacturer warranty for the ultimate peace of mind.
