Automobili Pininfarina to show Battista hyper GT electric supercar at Goodwood Festival of Speed
Zero-emissions Italian carmaker plans to lead way in the sustainable automotive luxury movement
Automobili Pininfarina will be showing off their incredible Battista pure electric hyper GT at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The all-electric hypercar will be on display at Goodwood’s ‘Electric Avenue’ aiming to lead the sustainable automotive luxury movement. A video of this hypercar in action can be seen below:
The Battista launch model will be showcased within this section, giving Goodwood visitors a first chance to view the hyper GT. It channels more than 90 years of iconic Italian heritage and is the most powerful Italian sports car ever made.
This sleek and silent operator combines exquisite design with luxurious sustainable materials and a sophisticated pure-electric powertrain to represent the pinnacle of electric vehicle (EV) technology.
Per Svantesson, Automobili Pininfarina CEO, said: "We are excited to bring Battista to the iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed for the first time. This hyper GT and our future portfolio of luxury electric cars will offer the beautiful design and personalisation opportunities one expects from Automobili Pininfarina.
“With thrilling performance enabled by zero-emissions powertrain technology and an array of sustainably sourced design features and finishes. Goodwood’s Electric Avenue is a perfect showcase for this vision of future luxury.”
Automobili Pininfarina will be joining some high profile zero-emissions vehicles on Goodwood’s Electric Avenue including BMW with their i4, Lotus, MINI with their Formula E Pacesetter and Polestar with its Precept.
Automobili Pininfarina’s attendance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed follows a successful prototype testing programme. This has seen the Battista undergo rigorous assessments at some of the most demanding test tracks across Europe.
The project is on schedule to deliver the first customer cars later this year after confirming that Jardine Motors Group will be the London and southern UK retailer for the exclusive new model.
