The race for the best electric hypercar has started, previously the Rimac Nevera became the world's fastest production EV with a top speed of 412 kph. This time Pininfarina released record-breaking acceleration and braking metrics for its Battista hypercar
Battista broke the record at the Dubai Autodrome by going from 0-60 MPH in just 1.79 seconds and 0-120 MPH in 4.49 seconds. For comparison, 0-100 km/h (62.14 MPH) is 1.86 seconds, with 0-200 km/h (124.274 MPH) reaching 4.79 seconds.
Not only about acceleration, Battista also achieved extraordinary achievements in braking. The Battista comes to a complete stop from 100 km/h in just 31 meters. The previous braking record was that of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 which came to a complete stop from 100 km/h in just 38.7 meters.
The test is the latest round of Battista homologation, to gain approval for operation and sale. The tests resulted in a combined EPA range of 300 miles, a world record for an electric hypercar.
“I am proud that our new electric hyper GT delivers on the promises we made when we set out our development plan,” Chief Product and Engineering Officer Paolo Dellacha said. “In Battista, we have achieved performance beyond our original, extreme targets.”
Pininfarina Battista packs 1,900 horsepower and 2,340 Nm of torque. This electric hypercar has a top speed of 350 km/h, and a 476 mile WLTP range.
