Pininfarina Battista Cinquantacinque | A Modern Ode To 1955 Classic

Automobili Pininfarina has once again graced the automotive world with a bespoke marvel, the Pininfarina Battista Cinquantacinque. Rooted in the rich heritage of Italian craftsmanship, this hypercar pays homage to Pininfarina’s illustrious lineage while embracing the cutting-edge technology of the future.

Pininfarina’s legacy stretches back nearly a century, from its humble beginnings as a coachbuilder to its current incarnation as a standalone brand. Drawing inspiration from its past, the Battista Cinquantacinque breathes new life into a classic design ethos. The influence of the 1955 Lancia Florida, a revered creation of Pininfarina’s founder Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, is unmistakable in this modern hypercar’s sleek lines and elegant proportions.

Adorned in Blu Savoia Gloss with a Bianco Sestriere Gloss roof, the Battista Cinquantacinque’s two-tone color scheme harkens back to the iconic styling of the Lancia Florida, while bespoke touches like the Brushed Anodized jewelry pack add a touch of contemporary flair.

Mahagoni Poltrona Frau Heritage leather swathes the interior, inspired by the interior of Lancia Florida. Every detail, from the center console to the roof lining, is thoughtfully executed. Inscriptions throughout the vehicle serve as a reminder of its heritage and bespoke craftsmanship.

Under the sleek and elegant exterior stylings lies a formidable powertrain that propels the Battista Cinquantacinque into a league of its own. Four electric motors, powered by a 120-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, deliver a staggering 1,900 horsepower and 1,726 pound-feet of torque. With a range of approximately 295 miles, this hypercar is not just about style and luxury, it’s about the thrill and excitement of blistering performance combined with eco-conscious engineering.

Each Battista Cinquantacinque will be meticulously hand-built by the artisans at Automobili Pininfarina. As for pricing, with the standard Battista starting at $2.2 million, expect a premium on Pininfarina’s latest hypercar. The Pininfarina Battista Cinquantacinque makes its debut in Tokyo, Japan, where it is introduced to clients in the region alongside retail partner SKY GROUP as part of Automobili Pininfarina’s continued global expansion.
