The Pininfarina Battista is an all-electric supercar with classic looks

Cars
Welcome to the Automobile Pininfarina stand at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. Now it's worth pointing out that this is separate to the Pininfarina SpA stand which is somewhere over there because this is a company now based in Munich as opposed to Chevin and this is a standalone company producing a car, this, the quite wild Battista. This is an EV, it produces 1,900 brake horse power, 1,686 pounds foot of torque, all from a 120 kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery. Which is, the systems are four motors One for each wheel. So [INAUDIBLE] which we'll get to in a minute and it's all used by Rimac and the batteries are T shaped behind me and then down this central spine here. The performance figures as you might imagine are pretty extraordinary so nought to sixty miles an hour in under two seconds, but this one is quite extraordinary, nought to a hundred and eighty six miles an hour, that's nought to 300 kilometres an hour. In under 12 seconds. Even the McLaren's Speedtail down there can't quite match that. I think that's 12.3 to 186. Helping bring the car back to a stop are 390 millimeter carbon ceramic brakes. Range, well that's gonna be about 300 miles. And they say that we'll be able to replenish 80% of that range in just forty minutes on a rapid charger. It's got a carbon fiber [UNKNOWN] which, if you look around in here then I can see all sorts of carbon fiber. They haven't released a weight for it yet, but they're gonna produce 150 of them priced at two million pounds each. The interior? Well I love this arrangement of the screen here, it sort of give a, they call it this vanishing point look and it does, it focuses you in on this little screen in the middle, which looks from the outside of it like a sort of mobile phone placed in portrait mode with the speed there. So it's almost a little bit like a sort of head up display in the way that it appears in your vision. And it's a reasonable amount of room. It's a little bit cramped. It's a little bit cramped than say the equivalent Ferrari. Talking of which the looks and quite a lot of people have likened it to 4XH. I suppose to [INAUDIBLE] faces it now. Feels a bit thicker. But it is its own thing and they wanted it to look like a car that was recognizably, A super car, so not breaking away from that too much and why would they when they've been designing super cars for ages so why not use some of that? So no, it's not perhaps as wild or extraordinary or Extreme as some people might have expected, but equally, I think it's made a lot more people think that it's much more real and it's more accessible, and made them think that yeah, an EV car with 1900 horsepower is a reality. [INAUDIBLE] Of course, setting up all that tall [UNKNOWN] is going to be no mean task. Luckily they have somebody On the case and they kind folk because the company's owned by Mahindra an industrial giant. And he races for Mahindra racing and fought it in so it's quite a task. Anyway let us know what you think. 900 brake horse power of EBs this is the thing that's gonna make people really want to be receive for, let us know.
