Design firm turned automaker Pininfarina is set to unveil its first model – the Battista electric hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show next week. But, we won’t just be seeing a single example of the hypercar at the Palexpo but three different variations of it. Each variation is intended to bring out different aspects of the hypercar’s design.
One example will feature a “Grigio Luserna” or satin grey exterior with anodized aluminium detailing and satin Blu Iconica accents. The interior on this particular car will be a dual-tone black and tan finish. According to Pininfarina, this specification presents a “strong, well-defined and dynamic expression of Battista that still remains elegant.”
The second car will be finished in Blu Iconica which is described as a “more electric” interpretation of Pininfarina’s traditional blue and “reflects the technological innovation within.” The Blu Iconica car will also feature modifications to the wing-mirrors and hood to give it a more dramatic appearance. Given the description, we think it’s the same car we have been seeing in the teasers.
Pininfarina SpA, the design subsidiary of the automaker will have its separate stand at the Palexpo where the third Battista example will be displayed. This example will be finished in Bianco Sestriere, a pure pearlescent white harking back to historic Pininfarina cars such as the iconic Ferrari Modulo concept. This example will also feature red brake calipers and a red aluminum line running along the bottom of the car. This example is mainly intended to display the automaker’s design services and customization possibilities for the hypercar.
In addition to the three examples of the Battista, the Pininfarina stands will also display a Battista-inspired Formula E racing car from Mahindra Racing.
