Pininfarina 90th Anniversary
FOR ITS 90TH ANNIVERSARY, PININFARINA BATTISTA, THE LEGENDARY DESIGN HOUSE, IS RELEASING THE APTLY NAMED ‘ANNIVERSARIO COUPE.’
—By Luisa Tarantino
Advertised as the ‘most powerful supercar’ to ever come to Italy, Pininfarina’s Anniversario Coupe is a beast of a car – a commemorative version of its electric Battista hypercar. The body is perhaps the most striking aspect, coming in a shade of gray inspired by past models, adorned by a blue pinstripe that represents the House’s current signature colour, a process that takes up to three weeks as each car is painted entirely by hand and is disassembled and reassembled a total of three times to ensure perfection. The interior comes in a mix of black leather and Alcantara.
Packing 4 electric motors on either axle, they deliver 1900 horsepower and a 1700 ft-lb of torque. It can hit up to 60mph from a stop in under two seconds and attain a top speed of 350 km/h. Its 120-kilowatt-hour battery pack offers an estimated range of over 500 kilometers.
In keeping with its anniversary, only 90 of these will be produced, each unique and valued at 1.9 million USD.
