The Battista EV Hypercar

In under 12 months, Automobili Pininfarina will start the production of the Battista, a mere eight months after its unveiling. There will be no more than 150 bespoke Battista cars ever to circulate our Earth.

The Battista will deliver a combination of up to 500 km, and go from 0 to 62 mph in under two seconds.

It's a one-of-a-kind emissions-free car. 

When speaking about the EV Hypercar Experience, Heidfeld said: "This amazing Hyperdrive experience is just one step in the Battista customers’ intimate journey with us, and a major step towards making car enthusiasts fall in love with electric power."

The future owners of the Battista Hypercars will be well watched as they circumnavigate the nine right-hand corners and seven left-hand corners of the Circuit de Calafat.

Learning about the power and the technology behind such electric race cars will undoubtedly offer them an advantage when they receive the keys to their Battistas. 

In the meantime, it'll certainly whet their appetites. 

For those hypercar fans out there, Automobili Pininfarina has provided a Virtual Reality game of driving a Battista. Called 'Asphalt 9: Legends', the game can be downloaded via Apple's App Store or Google Play for Android users.
