The all-electric Pininfarina Battista hypercar will be showcased at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed running from July 8 to July 11.
Last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic and at this year’s event, the Battista will be featured at the Electric Avenue exhibition space. This area will be located at the heart of the event and forms part of the Festival’s focus on innovation.
Pininfarina hasn’t said whether or not the Battista will run up the famous hill climb.
“We are excited to bring Battista to the iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed for the first time,” Automobili Pininfarina chief executive officer Per Svantesson said in a statement. “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.”
Customer deliveries of the Pininfarina Battista will start later this year, with the Jardine Motors Group being the automaker’s London and southern UK retailer.
The hypercar is powered by a 120 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and has no less than four electric motors driving all four wheels. All up, it pumps out a combined 1,873 hp and 1,696 lb-ft (2,300 Nm) of torque, allowing it to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 2 seconds and reach a 350 km/h (217 mph) top speed.
