Pininfarina Battista — 2019
The Pininfarina name has adorned some of the most beautiful cars ever built, but rather than being the design house for another car company, the Battista is built by Pininfarina. Named for Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina who founded the Carrozzeria Pininfarina coachbuilding company in 1930, the new Battista is an all-electric hyper GT car with a stunning carbon fiber body and carbon fiber monocoque chassis. Although the design is completely Pininfarina, the fully electric powertrain comes from Rimac. The Battista gets four electric motors — one at each wheel — for a combined output of 1900 horsepower and almost 1700 lb-ft of torque. Pininfarina claims the Battista is the most powerful street-legal car ever designed and built in Italy.
