Mahindra-owned Italian carmaker Pininfarina has revealed that its Battista hypercar is now the fastest-accelerating production car in the world.
The news about the Pininfarina's record-breaking acceleration and braking times was revealed at the hypercar's recent dynamic debut in the United Arab Emirates at the Dubai Autodrome.
The record-breaking acceleration numbers of the Pininfarina Battista are as follows:
- 0-60mph(96.5km/h) in 1.79s,
- 0-100km/h in 1.86s,
- 0-120mph(193.1km/h) in 4.49s,
- 0-200km/h in 4.75s.
The Pininfarina Battista also achieved a world record for EVs for its braking performance. The Battista stopped from 100-0km/h in just 31 metres, which is astonishing for a car that weighs nearly 2 tonnes.
The Battista also has the world record range for a hypercar of 300 miles (EPA) or 482.8km. This is achieved through its Rimac Nevera-sourced, T-Shaped 120kWh battery pack. The Rimac Nevera recently claimed the world record for the fastest speed achieved by an EV by hitting 412km/h in Germany.
So how exactly does the Pininfarina Battista get its record-breaking, F1 car beating performance? Well, the battery pack feeds four electric motors (once again from Rimac) that deliver a combined 1,874bhp and 2,340Nm of peak instantaneous torque to all four wheels. These figures also make the Battista the most powerful car to ever come out of Italy.
The Pininfarina Battista offers owners five driving modes to choose from - Calma (Calm), Pura (Pure), Energica (Energetic), Furiosa (Furious) and Carattere (Character). Furiosa is the most manic of all the modes while the Carattere mode allows owners to tune the character of their Battista to their personal setup.
To ensure the rest of the world hears your Battista as it blasts past everyone, Pininfarina worked with the sound designers Novo Sonic to give the hypercar its own signature soundtrack dubbed 'Suono Puro'.
Pininfarina claims that no two of the 150 production Battistas will be the same with each customer invited to the firm's design studio in Italy to customize the appearance of their car's exterior and interior to their own bespoke tastes. This is something customers of the Battista expect considering the 2.2 million euros (Rs 18.48 crore) price tag (before local taxes come into play).
Thoughts About The Record-Breaking Pininfarina Battista
The Pininfarina Battista shows just how quickly electric cars are breaking the glass ceilings set by ICE vehicles. The fact that a car that weighs nearly two tonnes is quicker off the line than a Formula 1 car is absolutely astounding and makes us wonder, just how much quicker can we go?
