Pininfarina will unveil a special edition of their electric hypercar, the Battista Edizione Nino Farina, at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Limited to just five units, this version pays tribute to the legacy of Giuseppe “Nino” Farina, the first Formula 1 race winner and champion in 1950, who was also the nephew of Battista Farina, the founder of Pininfarina.
In celebration of Pininfarina’s automotive brand’s fifth anniversary, each of the five cars will feature an aluminum door plate that showcases significant moments from Nino’s life. These moments include his birth date and place (1906 in Turin), his first F1 pole and victory at the 1950 British Grand Prix, his second win at the 1950 Swiss Grand Prix, his third and final victory at the 1950 Italian Grand Prix, and his 1950 F1 championship title.
The exterior of all five cars will share a distinct color scheme, featuring red, white, and blue for the body, complemented by gold wheels. Additionally, the driver and passenger seats will have contrasting colors.
Under the hood, the powertrain remains unchanged, featuring four electric motors and a 120-kWh T-shaped battery. With a remarkable peak output of 1,874 horsepower, the Battista Edizione Nino Farina will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.79 seconds, with a quarter-mile time of 8.55 seconds. Thanks to a motor dedicated to each wheel, precise torque vectoring will also be achievable.
This special edition Battista follows the Battista Anniversario, which was revealed in 2020 to commemorate the 90th anniversary of Pininfarina’s design studio. Like its predecessor, the Battista Edizione Nino Farina is also limited to five units.
While Pininfarina is known for developing higher-volume vehicles beyond the Battista, such as an SUV teased with the Pura Vision concept car a few years ago, specific details about these upcoming models, apart from a projected 1,000-horsepower output, are yet to be provided by the company.
