Pininfarina Battista goes from 0-60 Mph in 1.79 seconds, becomes the world’s fastest-accelerating road-legal car.
Rimac-powered Battista isn’t just the fastest accelerating road-legal vehicle but also the fastest accelerating EV.
Other new records set includes a 0-120 mph in 4.49 seconds, a 0-200 km/h in 4.75 secs and a 60-to-zero mph in just 102 feet.
Its powertrain includes four electric motors that churns out 1,877-hp and a 120-kWh battery pack that allows 300 miles.
Pininfarina plans to build just 150 units of its hand-built electric hypercar, which each starting at $2.25 million.
The Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar has set a new acceleration record after hitting 0-60 mph in just 1.79 seconds, beating out the 1.85 seconds the Rimac Nevera needed to achieve the same feat.
The new accelerating record makes the Rimac-powered battery-electric hypercar not just the fastest accelerating road-legal vehicle but also the fastest accelerating electric vehicle.
Other new records set during the acceleration tests at the Dubai Autodrome includes a 0-120 mph (193 km/h) in 4.49 seconds, a 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 4.75 seconds and a 60-to-zero mph in just 102 feet (31 metres) – making it also the fastest braking EV in the world.
Paolo Dellacha, Automobili Pininfarina Chief Product and Engineering Officer said :
“I am proud that our new electric hyper GT delivers on the promises we made when we set out our development plan. In Battista, we have achieved performance beyond our original, extreme targets,” said Paolo Dellacha, Automobili Pininfarina Chief Product and Engineering Officer.
While the Battista is now the quickest car on the market, its top speed of 217 mph achieved during the test in Dubai is still dwarfed by Rimac Nevera’s top speed of 256 mph, making the latter the fastest electric production car.
Battista’s powertrain includes four electric motors that churns out 1,877 horsepower and 1,696 ft lbs of torque and a Rimac-supplied 120-kWh battery pack that allows a range of 300 miles.
The Pininfarina Battista, just like the Rimac Nevera it is based on, is a limited edition high-performance Hypercar. Pininfarina plans to build just 150 examples of its hand-built electric hypercar, which each starting at $2.25 million.
