If ever there was a car that celebrated the founder of the legendary design studio Pininfarina then the Battista is such a vehicle to do so. The Pininfarina Battista is named after the founder of Italy’s world renowned automotive design studio.

From it’s inception in 1930 Pininfarina specialised in automotive design and coachbuilding. Kind of like styling mercenaries for a wide range of car industry clients.

The Pininfarina Battista rests on a carbon fibre monocoque chassis and carbon fibre body. The range is rated at 300 miles, fast(ish) charging allows for 80 percent of the battery to be recharged in 40 minutes.

The interior will feature the latest digital cockpit innovations. And of course, for a car costing $2m you can expect it to be trimmed in only the finest materials.
