The Pininfarina Battista electric supercar has set a quarter-mile production car record. The 8.55-second run was conducted earlier this month at the Natrax test facility in India, home country of Pininfarina’s parent company, Mahindra. Powered by a 120-kwh T-shaped battery pack that feeds four electric motors good for a combined output of 1,874 hp, the Battista is said to be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph.
The Pininfarina Battista set a production-car record at the Mille Miglia race in Italy last weekend, by completing the quarter-mile in just 10.8 seconds at an astounding 124.2 mph. This astonishing performance reaffirms the Battista’s place as one of the most iconic and advanced production cars in the world.
