Italian carmaker Automobili Pininfarina has debuted the Battista, the first pure-electric hyper GT, on the streets of California as part of Monterey Car Week. The debut will give U.S. clients the chance to experience the 1,900 horsepower hypercar.
The debut will also give U.S. prospective buyers a chance to experience what is possible, with the company offering customers the opportunity to take part in a custom personalization program to customize their Battista with the engineers.
In an atelier space next to the factory, customers will be able to tailor their car. The company has said that 128 million combinations of materials are available, with 56 exterior paint options.
The Battista, crafted at Automobili Pininfarina's manufacturing facility in Italy, glides smoothly and quickly through California roads at speeds of over 100 miles per hour. The drive shows off the agility of the polished Impulso forged aluminum alloy wheels and exposed bodywork.
Supplying the 1,900 hp is a 120-kilowatt-hour battery that powers four electric motors, one in each wheel, that gets about 1696 pound-feet of torque. On a single charge, the car is expected to get a range of over 310 miles.
