Automobili Pininfarina Partners With Naim Audio for Premium Performance
Automobili Pininfarina, the deluxe Italian hypercar brand has announced an exciting new partnership with British luxury hi-fi brand, Naim Audio, designed to bring the pinnacle of sonic experiences to prospective owners of the most powerful Italian sports car of all time. News of the partnership is revealed as the luxury electric car creator Automobili Pininfarina prepares a small fleet of prototype Battista hypercars for the final stages of a rigorous test programme beginning in August.
In the electric vehicle era, in-car audio has never been more important – especially when that EV is a luxury hypercar. Developing the ultimate EV audio experience is the goal of the partnership between Naim Audio and Automobili Pininfarina, uniting the brands’ shared values of innovation, precision engineering, premium performance and sustainability.
The Battista will be the most powerful car ever designed and built in Italy and it will deliver a level of performance that is unachievable today in any road-legal sports car featuring internal combustion engine technology. Faster than a current Formula 1 race car in its 0 -100 km/h sub-two second sprint, and with 1,900 hp and 2,300 Nm torque on tap, the Battista will combine extreme engineering and technology in a zero emissions package. The Battista’s 120 kWh battery provides power to four electric motors – one at each wheel – with a simulated WLTP range of over 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge.
Tuning is optimised for both driver and passenger: a symmetrical speaker layout creates an auditorium-like studio effect, with realism and ambiance that will make it seem as if musicians are playing inside the Battista itself. You will experience a completely new dimension of sound, where unwanted noise is cancelled and the focus is on the pure pleasure of driving the Battista.
Combining breathtaking power and sumptuous luxury, every Battista pure-electric hypercar will be hand-crafted by Pininfarina in Italy, with deliveries to clients worldwide beginning early in 2021. No more than 150 of these masterpieces of design will be created, each specified with a bespoke in-car Naim Audio system.
