New limited-edition Battista Anniversario to be given world premiere online by Chief Design Officer Luca Borgogno
Automobili Pininfarina CEO Per Svantesson shares vision for a pure-electric future, inspired by a glorious past
The technology at the heart of the most powerful Italian sports car of all time will be presented to the world for the first time on 07 August 2020, by Automobili Pininfarina Chief Product and Engineering Officer Paolo Dellacha. As part of a series of exclusive new films shown on a day dedicated to Automobili Pininfarina and the new Battista pure-electric hypercar, this preview of the Battista and its rigorous test programme will be broadcast online at the website of the inaugural Concours Virtual (https://concoursvirtual.com/conceptcars/pininfarina-battista-anniversario/) at 14:00 CET on 07 August.
Automobili Pininfarina CEO Per Svantesson said: “The opportunity to showcase the work of the Automobili Pininfarina team as part of the Concours Virtual coincides with the first Battista prototype test vehicles nearing completion at the home of our hypercar and Pininfarina SpA in Cambiano, Italy.
“Throughout a challenging period, our engineers and experts across the business have worked tirelessly to ensure we bring Battista to life this year. We now have the opportunity to show our prospective clients and the community gathering online for the Concours Virtual the remarkable progress we have made.”
Geoff Love, Co-Chairman of the Concours Virtual said: "We are delighted that Automobili Pininfarina has chosen the Concours Virtual to showcase their prototype technology. With so few physical events taking place this year, manufacturers have searched for innovative ways to present their future plans.
"Concours Virtual is the perfect environment with its global audience of collectors and true enthusiasts. We are very much looking forward to presenting Automobili Pininfarina on the 07 August."
