The Battista hyper GT has set two new world records.
The pure-electric hyper car (which produces over 1,900 bhp and 2,340 Nm of torque) secured its place as the fastest production car in the world by completing a quarter of a mile sprint in just 8.55 seconds and a half mile dash in 13.38 seconds.
The test was conducted at the Indore Natrax facility in India.
Officially the Battista is the fastest car to be driven in India.
We were very proud to bring Battista to India for the first time. Collaborative events there with our shareholder Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd were delivered at a significant time for Automobili Pininfarina. In 2022 we began production of Battista at our new Atelier facility in Italy, with deliveries to customers worldwide starting soon after.
This year, new Battista owners are excited to explore the unprecedented performance of this design and engineering masterpiece. These speed records – and independent tests – have validated our ambition to create a new generation of hyper and luxury car leading with Battista, whereby electric power delivers performance that is simply unachievable in the world of ICE powertrains.
For Hormazd and his Autocar India team to showcase what is possible with Battista in their hands is hugely important. We conceived Battista as a hyper GT – a special blend of beautiful design and attention to detail synonymous with the Pininfarina brand, allied to extreme electrified performance and a level of vehicle dynamics which sets a new benchmark among hypercars. In these tests Battista has shown that record-breaking performanceis there to be enjoyed by every driver on road or track.
