The second design edition in the Battista series after the Anniversario, the new Pininfarina Battista Edizione Nino Farina is presented in Rosso Nino with contrasting elements in Iconica Blu and Bianco Sestriere. It rides on Glorioso Gold wheels with a ten-spoke design, has black brake calipers, special engraving in the headlamps, and Nino's graphic signature on various elements.
On the inside, Pininfarina went for a two-tone theme, with the driver's seat wrapped in sustainable black leather and the passenger seat sporting a beige and black Alcantara look. Bespoke headrests are part of the upgrades, the company says, and the hypercar also gets Iconica Blu seatbelts, contrast stitching, a 12 o'clock marker on the steering wheel, and door plaques that are unique to each car made.
Pininfarina hasn't messed around with the powertrain, which soldiers on without any modifications. Thus, you are looking at the same quad-motor setup, with each one driving a wheel, and a T-shaped liquid-cooled battery pack mounted behind the seats to ensure a low center of gravity. The Battista Edizione Nino Farina boasts a combined 1,877 hp (1,900 ps/1,400 kW) and 1,726 lb-ft (2,340 Nm) of torque.
With the Launch Control function engaged, it has an F1-beating time of 1.79 seconds from 0 to 60 mph (0-97 kph) and takes only 1.86 seconds to 62 mph (100 kph). The 0-120 mph and 0-124 mph (0-193/200 kph) times are rated at 4.49 and 4.75 seconds, Pininfarina says, and the top speed stands at 217 mph (350 kph). Drivers can select between five different modes called Calma, Pura, Energica, Furiosa, and Carattere. With the battery pack fully charged, Pininfarina says it has a total driving range of up to 296 miles (476 km) on the WLTP cycle and an EPA-targeted 300 miles (483 km).
Pininfarina will host the public debut of the new Battista Edizione Nino Farina this weekend, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it is set to take on the famous hill climb at the hands of former F1 driver and hill climb record holder Nick Heidfeld, who is a Pininfarina advisor and "has played a key role in the Battista story so far."
