The most powered electric supercars from Italy

If a decade ago, the majority of people might find it difficult to imagine that electric cars could compete with gasoline-powered supercars. But now, you might have heard about the Rimac C Two or the Audi PB18 e-tron. And at the beginning of 2018, an Italian auto design company whose services have long been used by Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Maserati had revealed plans to start working on an extraordinary electric supercar.

Yes, at that time, those future supercar creation was introduced with the codename PF0 (or PF-Zero). And at the end of 2018, Automobili Pininfarina announced its official name ie Pininfarina Battista.

Those name was inspired by the company founder, Battista 'Pinin' Farina. "Battista is a future hypercar, inspired by past legends" said Michael Perschke, executive director of Automobili Pininfarina as reported by Euronews.

And recently, those Italian auto design company launched the Pininfarina Battista electric car at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show exhibition which took place in early March. And Pininfarina Battista is also claimed to be one of the fastest cars in the world, even when compared to today conventional combustion engined supercars. This is certainly not surprising because Pininfarina Battista is noted to have a maximum speed above 350 kilometers per hour.
Pininfarina Battista is powered by four electric motors (one for each wheel), producing a combined output of 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm of torque. (Picture from: https://cnb.cx/2H4focx)
Pininfarina Battista is reinforced with 4 remarkable electric motors that distribute the power independently and directly to all wheels with the ability to torque vectoring, so as to be capable of spraying about 1,900 hp of power and torque of 2,300 Nm. These numbers turns out to be two times greater than the engine power of this year's F1 racing car. And also on this Pininfarina super car has a T-shaped battery, which is located in the middle of the car and stretches to the back of the driver's seat that functions to store electric power.

Those powertrain made by a Croatian company named Supercar Rimac was then tied intact on a carbon fiber monocoque, which is supported by carbon fiber body panel and equipped with aluminum in front and a crash structure at rear. The design was created as a tribute to the past Pininfarina design models such as Cisitalia 202, Ferrari Dino Bernelitta Speciale, Ferrari Modulo and the Sintesi concept car which became the flagship car of his day.

Pininfarina claims Battista can accelerate from a standstill to a speed of 300 kph in under 12 seconds. The speed of 100 kph can be reached in less than two seconds. Besides that the company stated that in one single battery charging, Battista was able to explore more than 450 kilometers. Uniquely, Battista will use five different drive modes, so that it can produce quite different car sounds. Indeed not surprising, this car was deliberately designed to be an electric car with super specifications as a serious contender for the Bugatti Chiron.

Then in addition to the powertrain and lightweight body, what are the other components that support Battista so that it can drive fast on the road? Yes, with the use of Pirelli tires combined with 21-inch alloy wheels. Then by using the braking system with a six pinston caliper made from 15.4-inch carbon ceramic. There is also an active rear wing that functions as an air brake.

In the interior, there are two special sporty benches, embellished with anodized aluminum trims, genuine leather layered and optional carbon fiber material. A variety of interesting features to captivate the hearts of the world's super car enthusiasts. With this fairly personal design, that makes no similar car made by Pininfarina in Cambiano Italy.
The plan is that Pininfarina Battista will go on sale in 2020 with only 150 units will be produced and sold at a price estimated at between US $ 2 million and US $ 2.5 million. A total of 50 cars are allocated to the United States, 50 to Europe and 50 to the Middle East and Asia. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CAR MAGAZINE | AUTOEXPRESS]
