Thanks to a bespoke personalisation program, each Pininfarina Battista that leaves the showroom floor will be a unique creation.

All Battista clients will be invited to the design house in Italy to collaborate on how they want to spec their cars.

For the exterior of the vehicle, customers have a choice of 56 colours but can also option exposed carbon, bespoke roof finishes, and exterior ‘jewellery’.

The rear wing, mirror caps, brake callipers, alloy wheels and centre lock rings can all be fully customised.

Inside the vehicle, there are 128 million different combinations to pick from.

Customers will have the choice of different types of leather and Alcantara along with customisation for the brushed aluminium. An interior ‘jewellery’ pack is also available to help bling the car up even more.

Customers can even engrave the chassis plate that lies between the seats and the passenger side door plate.

The first bespoke commission is the featured example, inspired by New York City and featuring a red, blue and white theme. It features Exposed Signature Carbon body work with an Iconica Blue thread.

Inside, there’s a mix of leather and Iconica Blu Alcantara with navy inserts, plus red and white accents, white seatbelts, and brushed aluminium trim.

If you haven’t heard of Pininfarina’s latest in-house creation, the Battista is an all-electric supercar based heavily off the Rimac Nevera.

It uses a 120kWh battery which powers four motors located behind each wheel.

Pininfarina claims the car will be faster than a current Formula 1 car as it puts down a staggering 1416kW of power and 2300Nm of torque.

The Battista’s twin brother – the Rimac Nevera – managed a 0-100km/h time of just 2.2 seconds in testing but expect the Battista to get closer to a time of around 1.9 seconds.

But it won’t just be ridiculously fast. The Battista will offer an estimated electric range of 500km under the stricter WLTP standard.

We doubt that doing repeated launches from a standing start will help that figure, but if you are light-footed, that is an impressive feat for a hypercar.

Only 150 Battistas are going to be produced.

If you want a Pininfarina Battista, it’s probably too late. With a small build number and A$3.2 million price tag, most will already be sold.

No allocation has been set for Australia at this stage, with most, if not all, cars going to Europe, the USA and the Middle East.
