On the shores of Lake Como, just a few hours drive from Automobili Pininfarina‘s Cambiano production facility, the Battista won the Design Award at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este as a bespoke specification of the pure electric hyper GT made its first public outing between October 1-3, 2021.
The pure-electric hyper GT appeared in a previously unseen specification, following a successful world premiere at Monterey Car Week, where a unique model with Black Exposed Signature Carbon bodywork was joined by the Battista Anniversario to mark the introduction of the vehicle to the US market.
Luca Borgogno, Automobili Pininfarina Chief Design Officer said: “We took a unique Battista to Villa d’Este to showcase the diverse color and material choices that our discerning clients can choose from when personalizing their vehicle. To win the Design Award is a fantastic way for us to begin the countdown to making our first customer deliveries later this year. It’s always exciting for us to show new bespoke combinations of the Battista in different parts of the world, but especially so in our home country alongside other legendary classic Pininfarina-designed masterpieces.”
The hand-finished exterior features striking Verde Paradiso metallic paint, with a coordinating front nose and rear wing complemented by the Carbon Accent Pack for the lower body and rear diffuser. Its Black Exposed Signature Carbon elements combine with a Nero finish for the trademark “Goccia roof” while the Exterior Jewelry Pack features brushed anodized aluminum accents.
The exterior color scheme is complemented by precision-polished forged aluminum Impulso Gloss Black allow wheels with brushed anodized aluminum center-lock rings and brake calipers painted in an understated silver.
The interior combines exclusive sustainable Tan leather upholstery, with quilting providing an even more luxurious experience. The GT seats are complemented by matching Tan seatbelts and contrasting Black Exposed Signature Carbon detailing. The Interior Jewelry Pack provides brushed anodized aluminum detailing with the steering wheel and floor mats finished in black.
The production-ready Battista’s European debut follows a successful world premiere in the US as part of Monterey Car Week in California. It was the first opportunity for US clients to experience the production-specification Battista on the road, and see it in person alongside the exclusive Battista Anniversario.
Delivery of the pure-electric Hyper GT is planned for the end of this year.
