The world’s most powerful electric car toured the desert and the city
It won’t go into production until next year, but that didn’t stop motoring fans in Dubai getting a sneak peek of the zero-emissions 1,900hp Battista electric hypercar earlier this week at a regional launch event in partnership with Adamas Motors. The car, limited to just 150 units, will cost US$2 million (AED7.34 million), designed and hand-built in Italy, and accelerating from 0-60 in less than two seconds, making it faster than a Formula 1 car.
This is the first car to be built by Automobili Pininfarina – a German company with its roots in Pininfarina, the Italian design firm and coachbuilder, best known for its work with Ferrari. The electric hypercar is named after the Italian company’s founder, Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina.
There are some amazing shots of the Battista hypercar in Dubai – showing off its Grigio Luserna satin-grey carbon paintwork, with Blu Iconica design accents. The prototype is being shipped around the world to promote the true car’s arrival, and was recently in New York.
Luca Borgogno, Automobili Pininfarina’s design director, said, “The Battista’s classic hypercar proportions combined with cutting-edge technology that delivers 1,900hp and zero emissions will be a new experience for its owners in the UAE, and we believe will make them fall in love with ultra-high-performance electric vehicles.”
