Just over a year ago, Italian architect/design firm Pininfarina design house released its pure electric Battista,media reported. Perhaps such a “basic” car isn’t enough to lift your appetite, so the company’s announcement now is a very limited-edition model that will surprise you, and it’s the Anniversario.
Like the standard version, Battista Anniversario features a carbon fiber single-axis chassis and body, equipped with four electric engines (on four tires) – the output power peak and the bull’s peak are 1,900 horsepower and 2,300 nm, respectively. It accelerates to 300 km/h in less than 12 seconds, has a range of more than 500 km/ and uses a battery system for a 120 kWh lithium battery pack.
So what’s the difference between Anniversario? First, it comes with a Furiosa performance kit, which includes an improved carbon fiber front dispenser, side blades and rear expander. This configuration is now an option for the standard Battista.
In addition, this special edition uses a special tail wing for greater downforce and greater stability, greater balance at higher turn speeds, and a more dynamic balance. It also features a new set of center-locked forged aluminum wheels, the latter two of which have been increased from 20 inches to 21 inches. These changes have reduced the vehicle’s unreed load by 10 kg and increased the maximum speed to 350km/h.
It is reported that the car’s paint is hand-painted layer by layer, meaning it takes weeks. In fact, during this time, the body must be removed and reassembled three times in order to obtain three different colors of pinstripes. As for the overall body color, the options are Bianco Sestriere (white), Grigio Antonelliano (black) and Pininfarina’s “iconic” Iconica Blu (blue).
For the interior, The Anniversario features special seats, which are decorated in black leather and Alcantara. Other things that make it stand out include a sculpted undercarriage, headlight scarves, Anniversario markings on the flanks, and more.
It is reported that Battista Anniversario is expected to start production by the end of this year.
